Okay so when I first heard that SK Ali was writing a sequel to one of my favorite Muslamic books and that it would take place in MECCA AND MEDINA I was psyched. There was also a lot of pettiness and and insecurities that I feel were conflict-driven more than character-driven--issues that were put there for the sake of the conflict, not something that made complete sense to the characters.

I just wanted to look at the same sky as Zaynab, for more than a vacation, a break, a pause in our lives. it was perfection, romance at its best, halal goodness with a sprinkle of condemning inequality, racism islamophobia and pointing the finger at institutions. Although I understand this social interaction is a normal reality for many Muslims and I wasn’t too bothered by it as an adult reader who knows her own beliefs and limits, when I consider it from the perspective of a book targeted at potentially impressionable young Muslim women, it does raise some alarm bells for me.Zainab and Adam live Kms away forcing Zaynab to hide her difficulties with the intention of finding comfort in Adam when they meet face to face and Adam hopes he is able to provide a livelihood by the time they meet again so Zainab never doubts him. I don't blame the author for this, nor would I discourage anyone from reading it, but I have issues with an industry that allows for the marginalization of a community within their own representation. serious, since they're married and all, but i was not ready for what was mostly 300 pages of vague thoughtlessness (mostly adam), dramatic and impulsive jumping-to-conclusions, and never honestly communicating about any of it. Something I didn’t realise until a couple of days after finishing this book was how clearly I had been visualising and experiencing being present in Makkah and Madinah and performing Umrah as I read it.

I love how each chapter title looks like we're walking on a museum corridor that held Zaydam's journey. Adam and Zayneb are together but apart: nikahed and officially husband and wife, but separated by continents as they figure out school and work and still trying to convince their families that getting married was a good idea for them.

There was just One Kiss but I hope you don’t come after them because, you know, they’re married and it’s perfectly Halal. If you want a book that explores characters, the challenges of their relationship, and personal growth, this sequel is for you. For reasons I will explain, I am dividing my thoughts on this book into two parts: emotional and academic. There are many, MANY couples who spend a part of their honeymoon performing Umrah (my parents for example).

And I love all the cameos too, which didn't feel like random inserts but actually helped the characters grow!When there was no answer, that sensation in her stomach began, the one that felt like she was getting pinched with mega-big hands from the inside. Adam tapped his earbuds to disconnect them from the laptop before turning around to his little sister. I suppose it's realistic of a group of Western Muslims--unfortunately free-mixing is common in Western Muslim culture so it would continue to be normal as they went for umrah. It's definitely no secret that fans of Adam of Zayneb will love (no pun intended) Love From Mecca to Medina! When you know that and believe it and act upon it, everything and everyone around you will feel at peace with you.

Why in the world would Adam/Zayneb launch into a fully detailed discussion about their past crushes while THEY WERE ON THEIR HONEYMOON? Moreover, Zaynab and Adam's struggle in their relationship worried me so much ngl but, after reading a few chapters they all went away. Now we get to the controversy that I’ve seen circulating around due to, again, ignorance regarding your own religion. I have waited my entire life for a Muslim couple like this that breaks barriers and I will be damned if I let anyone take that from me. Ali's newest romance is centered around Adam and Zayneb, the protagonists from her previous novel Love From A to Z.throughout the whole book because why am i reading my own experience when i was performing umrah back in 2019. Moving on, let me wax poetic to you about the things in Love From Mecca to Medina that legitimately ruined me.
