Mother of the Believers: A Novel of the Birth of Islam Mother of the Believers: A Novel of the Birth of Islam

by Kamran Pasha

Book Reviews

"With insight and sensitivity, and in a beautiful balance of research and imagination, Kamran Pasha sheds light not only on the seminal figure of Aisha but on the origins of Islam. Mother of the Believers is both timely and timeless."
--Karen Essex, author of Leonardo's Swans

"With incredible scholarship and sensitivity, Kamran Pasha has crafted a remarkable tale and one that is long overdue. From the early days of persecution and enmity to the triumph of what will be one of the world's great religions, Aisha describes the struggle of a small band of believers to survive and ultimately to flourish in an environment that is by turns unforgiving and breathtakingly beautiful. This is a book of inspired and heartfelt imagination to be savored and enjoyed and an achievement of the first order."        
--Frederick J. Chiaventone, author of Moon of Bitter Cold

"Both epic and intimate, a glorious story"
--Amy Tan

"Kamran Pasha's Mother of the Believers taught me more about the soul of Islam in a few hundred pages than seven years' worth of contemporary news coverage, punditry, and the shelf full of books I've got at home. Superbly written, brilliantly realized, and absolutely authoritative, Pasha's tale of the Prophet, told by Muhammad's favored wife Aisha (who was no slouch as a warrior herself), brings depth and humanity to a people, a faith and a world that many of us in the West, myself included, have seen heretofore only as alien and enemy. Mother of the Believers is much needed in this hour-and it's a helluva ripping yarn too!"
--Steven Pressfield, bestselling author of Gates of Fire

"A brilliant, beautiful historical novel unlike anything I've read in years. Pasha's book brings the early history of Islam alive and sheds light on one of the most fascinating women in history. You will love this book."
--Reza Aslan, author of No god but God and How to Win a Cosmic War
