This book is about how God took me from trials to different victories. How each person that reads this book will know by their Faith in God will take them from trials to victories too. Just trust in God, focus on God and He will bring you out protected, provided for and most of all to a higher level in Him. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK The lesson from this is, remember God will not forsake you or leave you. Believe Him when He says this because it is true. God carried me through homelessness and brought me back to where He wanted me to be. He will guide your path daily if you let Him. “No problem is too big to be placed in God’s hands.”
It's a new era of fiction; Urban Islamic Fiction that is! Stepping up out into the spotlight is Jameelah Salih. Jameelah is a 27-year-old Muslim woman born to what appears to be one of the inner-city's stronger blended American Muslim families. She works as a hair stylist with her two best friends in the city's only Muslim women's owned and operated hair salon, Covered Pearls. On appearance and material possessions alone Jameelah seems to be doing big things; she has a loving family, owns a fly car, she has her own apartment and she's not too far off from getting her second degree. What most don't know is that she is one traffic jam away from losing control of her life. Being a single Muslim woman isn't easy plus post 9/11 stresses still seem to haunt her. Jameelah prays for a change, but what will she do if change actually comes? When a prominent Imam proposes marriage to Jameelah she feels as if it's the blessing that she has been waiting for from Allah. She knows marrying him will change her life, but when an unexpected family crisis erupts and secrets are exposed, Jameelah is forced to make hard choices and put her complete faith in the only One unable to break it.
