So if you were living in Mecca, you could pop in for a Umrah every day (granted if you follow the rules of Umrah).

It comes with Understanding your partner, Being Honest and mostly, Working as a We rather than as an I The problems that Zayneb and Adam had seemed menial and can be solved, but I liked that they somehow worked through their problems with the reliance of faith and mostly of their families and the people that cares about them. I had loved the explanations of the Prophet and the explanations of Mecca and Kaaba, makes me want to go there right this instant as I was reading the book. the way both the cities are described were so exact to what i felt when i was there, that just about every chapter had me overwhelmed. Sometimes it was a page turner because of how frustrating the conflict was (combined with how desperately I wanted Adam and Zayneb to resolve their issues instead of ruining their umrah). So the story started where Zaydam had to do long distance marriage—Adam in Doha for his art projects and Zayneb in Chicago for her law school.When Thanksgiving break happens, they are thrown into going to umrah when Adam, worried about how his MS will affect his ability to go to Makkah in the future, elects to take advantage of an opportunity. Adam is thrilled; it’s the reboot he needs and an opportunity to pray for a hijra in real life: to migrate to Zayneb in Chicago.

She knew he’d told her not to worry, that he was taking his medication, that his multiple sclerosis was under management, but Hanna was never satisfied until she saw for herself. When they go on a (sort of reunion-based) Umrah trip and an old face from Adam's past comes into the picture, their marriage begins to seem like a difficult fix. I feel like I should be starting this part of the review with a disclaimer, more for me than anyone else. 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.

Both novels were named best YA books of the year by various media including Entertainment Weekly and Kirkus Reviews . There are many, MANY couples who spend a part of their honeymoon performing Umrah (my parents for example). Ones I want to see in books because sadly nowadays, there is so much ignorance regarding Islam from Muslims. For me it was like there was this subconscious idea that a non-Muslim reader is reading over my shoulder so even though the descriptions and explanations are tedious I should suffer through for them.

On the trip of a lifetime, Adam and Zayneb must find their way back to each other in this surprising and romantic sequel to the "bighearted, wildly charming" (Becky Albertalli, New York Times bestselling author) Love from A to Z that's a "contemplative exploration of faith, love, and the human condition" (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). This is a book where the characters are living the reality of life's ups and downs, tests are inescapable, emotions are in play and the sustainability of marriage is questionable. It's been about 15 years since I went, and reading about it rekindled the longing for praying in the two most sacred masaajid in the world. Then a marvel occurs: Adam and Zayneb get the chance to spend Thanksgiving week on the Umrah, a pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia, tracing the hijrah in real life, together. The descriptions were so beautiful and detailed that I could both picture the Kabah and the Haram and its surroundings as well as feel the emotions the characters were feeling.

Adam loved Hanna, but her mini-auntie ways often interfered at the exact moments when Zayneb and Adam were trying to enjoy some time to themselves. that feeling is caused by so many factors tbh like i didn't feel ready to go so i kept having these am i good enough to visit the holy land?

Seeing only Adam’s worktable with his latest project spread out, a 3D map, and not him, she pushed the door open wider. Because love is rarely easy and it’s one of those things that requires communication, honesty, and work. As one wedge after another drives them apart while they make their way through rites in the holy city, Adam and Zayneb start to wonder: was their meeting just an oddity after all?Having said that, I certainly wouldn’t want to suggest that it is the responsibility of one book to raise Muslims who understand gender relation norms in Islam.
