Updated: Jul 13, 2022
Bimillahi ar-rahmani ar-rahim...
Assalamu aleikum waramatulahi wabarakatuhu Dear Readers.
The Endless Banquet:
Review: This is a concise and compelling tafsir of the first ten juzs of the Quran.
Beautifully laid out and to the point, it's very succinct and attention grabbing.
The Personal Librarian:
This is an historical fiction based on a true story of the Black woman who passed as White in the late 1800-1900s and helped the JP Morgan private library become what it is today; a public gift. It's a very intriguing story.

Until next time, subhanaka Allahumma wa-bihamdika ash-hadu anla ilaha illa anta as-taghfiruka wa atoobu ilayka. (O Allah, You are free from every imperfection; praise be to You. I testify that there is no true god except You; I ask Your Pardon and turn to You in repentance.) Aameen.
