There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Thank you Umm Zakiyyahs. My favorite of the three. If I Should Speak 3 books. Haleemah rated it liked it Jul 22, I felt uncomfortable at times, since it felt like the author was advocating polygamy for everyone, but by the end it’s clear that her stance is the same as mine: I know a lot of women may take a certain stance that is covered in this book, but I feel that the author did a wonderful job conveying all the characters and their mind set.
Kris um it it was amazing May 30, It’s such u,m compelling story that I think handles controversial issues well.
She had her faith. So, I have to say I was not as impressed as I was with the first 2. This is a great book with a strong plot that took me with her to the story where each one of the characters tries to understand this life in the best way.
Footsteps, the third in a trilogy to follow Umm Zakiyyah’s A Voice, is a story that stands on its own in both impact and inspiration.

Everyone seemed like an ideal Muslim, which tinged the story and made it a bit unrealistic.
I understand a little more why it shouldn’t be as tabooed as it is, but I understand that our reactions are also understandable. Overall, I was satisfied with the conclusion of the story that while polygamy is allowed, a truly understanding person people is are needed to carry through and shouldn’t be attempted with any doubt in the heart. Yes I cried a little in places but it didnt hit home as much as the others, maybe because I had grown used to getting zakityah know Tamika rather than her husbands parents.
Paperbackpages. No romance is complete without a love triangle. See 1 question about Footsteps…. Race is honestly something I knew was an issue but never imagined it to be explored in fiction and I am satisfied with the result.
Just from reading the back of Footsteps, I knew the topic of polygyny was going to be part of the book.
She had her soul. Zendre rated it it was amazing Apr 05, Forming the thread that weaves the characters’ lives together is Alika Mitchell, a strikingly beautiful daughter of a mulatto mother and half-Nigerian father, who is conducting a multicultural research for her master’s, and who inspires in the reader questions that one is left to ponder long after the book is closed.

Daughter of American converts to Islam, Umm Zakiyyah writes about the interfaith struggles of Muslims and Christians, and the intercultural, spiritual, and moral struggles of Muslims in America. Anyway my imagination could handle that because if it wasn’t so, the story would have been a hundred times more complex than it was.
