    ‘Love in a headscarf’ by Shelina Zahra and ‘Enjoy Your Life ‘ by Adb Al-Rahman Al-Arifi . You can find the latter on 🙂

    • I was just looking through these suggestions again today, and realized “Enjoy Your Life” sounds familiar . . sure enough, someone recently gave us that book! It is on my ‘to-read’ list; Insha’Allah I will make a post reviewing it after I’ve read it 🙂

  5. Just to be free from misunderstandings about Shi’ite School of thought, I recommend the Book “Then I was guided in search of true Islam” by Muhammad Al-Tijani Al-Samawi.
