July Wrap-Up

As expected, I didn’t manage to read that much during this past month.  It was Ramadan and in addition to not having a lot of energy to read while I was fasting, I also picked books that weren’t exactly light reading.  My favorite book from this month was Mecca and Main Street by Geneive Abdo, which focused more on Muslims than it did on Islam, but I thought the author did a good job in capturing the struggles and frustrations of Muslim Americans in a post 9/11 world.  My least favorite book of this month was  The Qur’anic Worldview by AbdulHamid AbuSulayman, which I didn’t even come close to finishing.

Here’s a quick list of the books I read this month and what I rated them:

  1. The Prophet’s Ramadhaan: How the Prophet observed the Month of Ramadhaan by Mufti Muhammad Khan Qaadri (8 out of 10 stars)
  2. The Night Prayers Qiyam & Tarawih Compiled by Muhammad al-Jibali (7 out of 10 stars)
  3. The Qur’anic Worldview by AbdulHamid AbuSulayman (did not finish)
  4. Mecca and Main Street by Geneive Abdo (8 out of 10 stars)

I’m hoping to get more reading done this month.  I am planning on a mini road trip and since I don’t drive, it will be the perfect opportunity to get some uninterrupted reading done.
