Reading Time: 3 minutes

Today’s book day brings you Homegirl Book Review from Nemrah Ahmed’s book list

Home Girl is a small self-help book by Nemrah Ahmed Niazi. Nemrah Ahmed is a famous Urdu fiction writer from Pakistan. Her books inspire many people, especially teenage and young girls helping them live meaningful and Godly life.

Like the rest, Homegirl also tries to instill Islamic values into the readers.

The book has a variety of topics that are important to learn for a young Pakistani girl.

At first, I thought, it was a book about personal hygiene. For example, It teaches girls the importance of cleanliness and how one can live a purely healthy and cleansed life.

But as I flipped through the pages, to my surprise it touched ALMOST ALL topics that make an ordinary girl a real HomeGirl.

The book Homegirl is a personal guide to bodily care, home decor, and home management.

It is nearly 93 pages; which consists of 12 brief chapters. The subject sequence of the chapters are like this;

  • Chapter 1 to 4 is about Personal Hygiene.
  • Chapter 5 is about Kitchen cleanliness
  • Chapter 6 is about Decluttering
  • Chapter 7 is about Organizing your Home
  • Chapter 8 is about Re- Modeling your Home
  • Chapter 9 is about Lightening your Home.
  • Chapter 10 is about Painting your Home.
  • Chapter 11 is about Ethics
  • Chapter 12 is about Hospitality.

Most of Nehmra’s readers are between the age of 16 – 24, and I think she has managed to relate with them on so many amazing levels. She doesn’t only teach their minds but also inspires them to take a step forward. Home Girl is also a glimpse of it.

Besides especially written for young girls, Home Girl can be read by any Muslim woman despite her age.

5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐.

In-depth Review of the Book:

What do I like most about the book?

First, there are a lot of misconceptions about bodily cleanliness in pure Muslim societies and it wasn’t very clearly discussed in a friendly way. I am glad Nemrah Ahmed has lifted her pen on this topic to educate our young girls about maintaining personal hygiene while not crossing the prescribed limits of Allah.  

Second, through the journey of Hunain Yusuf, she tries to create a strong personality within a delicate cultural girl. She teaches young girls the importance of decision-making. How right decisions (about themselves and their homes) can strengthen their personas.

Third, the book has some great ideas (tips & tricks) about home decor and home management. Apparently, a small Pakistani home can be beautifully furnished and decorated with a little investment.

A big part of Homegirl is about home decor. It feels like a small trip decorating one room to another until the entire house becomes elegant and delightful.

Forth, She highlights the importance of inner beauty — the beauty of speech, actions, and behaviors along with physical beauty.
