It took me a month to finalize what I can add to the in-depth review so that the right people get to find and buy the book.
Reclaim your Heart is a self-help book. I found this book very interesting and self-soothing. Why? because Firstly, the writer uses a novelistic approach to connect with the readers.
It conveys the message through storytelling adding in some beautiful examples, metaphors, and scenarios; from the Quran and her life. The text isn’t plain or boring.
The writer frequently adds Quranic verses, hadith, sayings of some amazing Islamic personalities like Ali (as), Rumi, Ibn e Taymiyyah and Ibn e Qayam to explain her point.
While reading, Yasmin Mogahed’s writing style tells you how thoughtfully, deeply, and lovingly has she written each chapter. She takes you into the scene.
Secondly, I really like her tadabbur over the Quran. For example in chapter 4 section 3 “A sacred Conversation,” she tells you that the Lord of the universe offers you a sacred conversation with him in the darkness of the night, while the world sleeps. How important you’re for Him. She then quotes Quran 50:22, to explain yet how unmindful you’re of this meeting.
Thirdly, It’s not just attachment, love, hardships, or the relationship with God that she discusses, she also pens down about women, men, and ummah. She drives the reader’s focus over the critical issues like women’s empowerment, manhood, and Ummah’s struggle in the 21st century.
She first tries to lead you to the center of healing, and once you reach there, she makes you see the west’s perspective of Muslims. How urgently Muslims needs to get better! She shares the harsh reality of today’s Muslims; how they’re doing nothing about their adverse condition and what’s it’s like to be a Muslim woman or man today!
I really like how she addresses current issues of the social, individual and work life of muslims.
Now lets, discuss some pros and cons with all sincerity and honesty!
- The Book uses a Novelistic approach.
- The writing style is free with great storytelling.
- The Book addresses Muslim’s current issues.
- It fills the heart with faith and zeal to get better.
- It inspires you and makes you realize your mistakes with the help of Quranic verses, hadith, and sayings of important Islamic personalities.
- It makes you see Muslim’s condition; them sleeping and ignoring the lessons Allah is teaching them through hardships; and Muslim men and women hurting their faith by falling into the trape of the world.
- The chapters are written in form of paragraphs; so no headings or bullet points are there.
- It has long and some extremely long sentences. So if you can’t maintain your focus, you may lose it.
- It explains situations and solutions but in a slightly unclear way. So if you’re looking for exact solutions in points, you might face some problem finding it.
Reclaim your heart is like a self-help manual, in which the writer has shared her thoughts about emotional healing, self-assessment, and self-correction.
