To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Alhamdulillah i am really thankful to have this book.This will really help you if you wish to be a better muslim .May Allah guide us all in the straight path and accept this as a good deed and may he bless all those who worked behind this book aameen😊
I received my order on the day of my birthday, and Alhamdulilah it really did make my day. This is an amazing book to read to for anyone who wants to learn more and is genuinely keen to know about Islam and the role of a Muslim woman or girl in this world. Learning about the history of women in Islam and the great sacrifices they took for Islam is an eye opener! I would definitely recommend this book to everyone, it is defiantly a must in every household.
As I wrote for another book that I bought together (Don't be sad), this book is not written by Ibn Kathir, or if it is, there is also another co-author who is talking about the contemporary times. I wonder infact how could it be possible for Ibn Kathir to know things of the future so well....so it's clear that it isn't his book. I'm very upset because this is the second book that I find in which it is IMPOSSIBLE to know the real author. And as we talk about Muslim issues attributed to one of the most prominent scholars of Islam, it's totally dishonest selling books using his name but putting a content that is impossible to verify in his correctness. And I can add also the condition of the book....edited in a way that seems a bachelor degree thesis.... I don't understand who is the editor that printed this book and the other that I cited in a so unfair and bad manner. I will send it back as I did for the other.
The only reason I gave it three stars is simply because I'm disappointed that it's a really big book. I wanted the original cover of the Ideal Muslimah and wanted a nice regular sized book I could throw into my purse as a read on the go. It's more like a textbook. I'm really disappointed about that, especially considering how long I waited to get my book, as it was out of stock.
Please note that the hardcover and paperback copy of this book are perfectly fine and should not be included in this review. Now, on to the kindle edition. Firstly, the kindle edition of this book has been credited to the wrong author. Dr. al-Hashimi has not been given the credit for the work he has written. It was instead published under Ibn Kathir's name. While Ibn Kathir has contributed greatly to this topic and islamic education as a whole, he did not write this and should not be credited for it. Secondly, the kindle edition is only one chapter long. I know the description says that it is a shortened version, but this is a waste of money. I paid 10$ to receive less than 20 something odd pages of a book that is roughly 250 pages in length. The kindle edition doesn't even cover the entirety of the first chapter. I have requested a refund and am currently waiting (edit: Amazon did refund me for this).
Again, the paperback and hardcover versions of this book are wonderful and I highly recommend them, but please do not buy the kindle version until the above issues have been remedied.
