reader ´ Princess More Tears to Cry ☆ Jean Sasson

Rank She must hide her identity for fear that the religious leaders in her country would call for her death to punish her honesty Only a woman in her position could possibly hope to escape from being revealed and punished despite her cloak and anonymity Sultana tells of her own life from her turbulent childhood to her arranged marriage a happy one until her husband decided to displace her by taking a second wife and of the lives of her sisters her friends and her servants Although they share affection confidences and an easy camaraderie within the confines of the women's uarters they also share a history of appalling oppression Read on the blogOkay I might be way too harsh with this review but that's only because I have never hated a book than this one right here So here goes my rant This book is said to be about Sultana Not real name who is a Saudi Princess and even though she belongs to the royal family she is bound by strict rules that define that women are only used for sexual relief and to bear the children for their husbands And how they are enslaved by their fathers husbands and brothers First of all what kind of a person who belongs to a family of famous people would want such intimidate details of her life story which is different than others obviously to be written by a foreign author and available for publish in abroad? Secondly how is it possible that when such details were put in a book for everyone to read how did her family not find it out? The facts in the book are obvious enough for anyone to understand that it's fake Fact #1 She said that she wasn't allowed to go into the mosue Being a Saudi Princess she should have known that Mosues have a separate section for women Fact #2 It's said that women were forced to marry after puberty I agree that women were and in some places still are being made to marry men right after maturation But it was to avoid going around and having sex before marriage as doing that is unlawful in Islam But but but I have heard that it's mentioned in the uran the holy book of Muslims that it is the woman who gets to decide when and whom she wants to marry Remember that it's always the humans who twist rules to fit their reuirementFact #3 Woman are given the highest respect in Islam Women are told to cover themselves so as not to attract the attention of unwanted men but men are not even allowed to look at them with bad intentions as thinking of a bad deed is eual to doing one And to support this fact a uote from the uran itself translated of course He who is best to his wife is the best man among you However I agree that polygamy is allowed in Islam but I don't think that anybody in the modern generation follows that as everyone knows that it's difficult enough to handle the expenses and lectures of one womanFact #4 Also a father who educates a minimum of three daughters has gained a palace in Heaven This is another thing from the holy book that shows that education is not prerogative to womengirlsFact #5 There is a story kind of thing that I have heard It's about this man who asks the prophet Who is the one worthy of respect after Allah The god worshiped by Muslims? and the prophet says Your mother The man asks one again Who after that? and the prophet says Your mother Once again the man asks And who after that? and the prophet says the same thing again For the last time the man asks Who after that? and then the prophet says Your fatherThis does not mean that Fathers are not respected enough they are but it's just that Mothers are held higherThere are many facts that I can go on about like the one about piercing the vagina or something which is absolutely stupid and I think that the author has just made it up but I just wanted to tell you guys that anyone who believes in this book and let's themselves be manipulated by it Islam is not a bad religion It has given it's followers many rules to follow but it's for their own advantage Like listening to music and watching movies is not allowed in Islam it's not forbidden but it's said so as to avoid any thing that takes one away from worshiping their God I think it's the same for Protestants I heard that like Muslims they too are supposed to cover their heads not drink not have sex before marriage not worship images or idols of God not listen to music or watch movies and not wear goldI accept that women are oppressed but anyone would be fool to believe that Islam is a religion that promotes it Women of every religion are oppressed by men of different religions Just because one man from one particular religion does so does not mean that every man of that religion does it The same goes for TerrorismSo this is what I had to say about this book Since I hate this one so much I don't think I will be reading the other two that follow this one And I won't be rating this one since I have nothing to give it but I won't be stopping you from reading it either You can read it for yourself and understand that it's the biggest hoax everLots of hatred for the author but love and pasta for you guysRaven
