SALAT from Womb to Tomb: A Woman’s Word on Spiritual Liberation and the Ritual of Prayer Kindle Edition
SALAT from Womb to Tomb: A Woman's Word on Spiritual Liberation and the Ritual of Prayer Kindle Edition
This book was written after the author gave birth to her first child, and describes her love for the Islamic prayer known as salah (plural, salat). It is written for American women who are English speakers, and readers should note that most of the salat itself is purposely rendered in English. The purpose is to give the readers a full appreciation, in their native language, of the divine and elevating messages intrinsic in the act and recitation of the salat. Salat directions in English and Arabic are available in many other works including the author's first printed book, "The Spiritual Warrior's Guide To A Proven Islam." Note: The fundamentals and "short form" of salah described here were confirmed by the head imam at the Islamic Cultural Center of New York, then located on Riverside Drive and 72nd Street, in the 1980s.
