The Jewel of Medina

November 25, 2008

I just finished this book….and wish, on some level I had read it sooner.

There are some progressives who doubt Aisha’s existence at all, and whether one does or does not, it’s a fascinating read. Yes it’s fictional, but it takes a heroine of Islam and makes her personal.  It reminds people that both prophet and woman were human, people.  With emotions like anger, jealousy, fear, love, kindness.  That patience must be learned, that life changes us, and that somewhere in there we have the strength to do the unexpected.
