Great book but poor pronunciation of Arabic words

The narrator did well to convey the story, but could have improved the experience by taking time to understand how to pronounce various terms and names as they should be pronounced.

Overall, I enjoyed listening to this story of Khadija and may listen to it again soon.

I loved it

It was good. I wish more was know about her. I could hear the reader almost cry at one point which added a connect with him. I pray that the reader has joined Khadija in "belief" and may we all join her in belief and in Heaven InShaAllah.

Disappointed with Narrator

The narrator was very bad and therefore the book was not enjoyable. Please ensure that narrators used are able to pronounce the names of the people and places correctly as it reduces the quality of Audible literature

Confirm with the Seerah

It was a great summary though some inserts were unnecessary, just be sure to check it against an authentic seerah lecture since the seerah should be the primary source. The narrator did a fantastic job but the music was absolutely insufferable and took away from the content, I couldn’t finish it for that reason.

Descriptive and good listen

Author brought her character to life. Good narration. Although short, he describes Khadija (RA) in an eloquent structured way.

Outstanding

Don't usually get this amount of information on one of the 4 greatest women of Islam. Narrator struggled a bit with pronunciation of some words but tried his best (would have loved a female narrator - for a book on a woman) but nonetheless, enjoyed the book. Would recommend.

Pronunciation is a disaster

Very disrespectful for the narrator to mispronounce names. It has been frustrating listening to it because I don’t know who he is talking about. Please get a native to narrate it. What a waste of a credit!
