    Masha Allah I loved it! I have been reading Waels books for a couple years now and truly enjoy the stories. They mix genuine life stories with the Deen in a pure and intriguing way that keeps me coming back. I am looking forward to see how this story progresses further insha Allah

    Also great reading of the story as well. JazakumAllahu khair!
