Publisher's Summary

At the age of 23, Ayesha removed her face veil to begin her studies in New York City.

Braiding together Western, South-Asian, and Qur'anic storytelling styles, the author illuminates what it means to exist in a world that demands something different from each of her identities. With lyrical prose and scholarly precision, she weaves her personal experiences with incisive social commentary to uncover the meaning of faith and belonging, love and betrayal, family and womanhood. In so doing, she offers us a vision of freedom that isn't measured in fabric.

Finally found!

As the title suggests, I wish I had read this book when I was younger.

Everyone has a story to tell but this one is specially thought out and delivers. Its engaging and cleverly written. Each chapter is apt for every stage in a South Asian Muslim girl/ woman's life.

There were couple of points in this book I didn't agree with but nonetheless it feels as if you're in disagreement with your best friend. (You soon make up).

I really don't want to give away the book too much, suffice to say it's looking through the lense of a feminist Muslima, living in Canada and being raised in a patriarchal society inside and outside the home.
Read this book with an open mind, some of the Quranic concepts expressed aren't new, they've just been well hidden under guise of "non traditional", and "modern culture".

I really think if most non Muslims read Colour of God they would understand alot about us, and the beauty that lies in our beliefs.
I will definitely be rereading it number of times over!

hope you find this review useful (=
