Ramadhan Reading: Standing Alone in Mecca

SKP got me a book for Ramadhan reading. It's called Standing Alone in Mecca: An American Woman's Struggle for the Soul of Islam by Asra Q. Nomani. It has about 300 pages, Insha Allah I'll be able to finish it by Eidl Fitr :)

Asra is a correspondent for the Wall Street Journal when she was beckoned to go on a pilgrimage to Mecca and she was determined to go with her son. One thing though, Asra, is not married and her son would be a living proof of illegally having sex or zina which could get her and her son into deep trouble if authorities in Mecca find out. I am only at page 7 so this should be inneresting.

Sukran SKP for the gift :)

P.S. Date should have been 1 Ramadhan 1430 :)
