    Ultimately The Convert was unsatisfying to me because it seemed like the big reveal was MaryamMargaretPeggy is crazy Maryam Jameelah born Margaret Marcus Peggy to her family is an American Jewish woman raised on Long Island who converted to Islam and moved to Pakistan in the early 1960s when she was in her late 20s The

    This is an excellent read somewhat of a mystery too A detective story The book is gripping and really heats up towards the end It is fascinating history unearthed and gives one an apercu into a radically different way of viewing the world I have argued with many friends over the causes of 911 Many say the problem is just uneual ec

  6. says:

    Was this even really a biography I'm not sure At the end I'm not sure at all of what is true and what is made up whether it is the subject or the author speaking Disjointed and then at the end the author confesses to essentially manipulating the letters and changing what she wanted I'm unsure whether this was a story of a

  7. says:

    A very unusual biographical style weaving the subject's letters over many years into the first person narrative of the author Well worth the time I invested and probably very important as I move ahead in the process of articulating my own informed version of recent history and the interaction of Islam and the West as well as that of religion and secularism in general Maryam Jameelah the biography's subject i

  8. says:

    Given that I knew nothing about the subject of the book before I read it I can still say that I know very little about herThe book was well written and very readable and it did help explain a little bit about why radical extremism in Islam exists I found the history of Pakistan very interesting and the search for the utopian government of IslamBut I was really hoping to see what would cause a culturally Jewish girl from suburban NY to con

  9. says:

    The subject matter of The Convert is absolutely fascinating What causes someone to convert to Islam Better yet what causes a young woman to convert to Islam and then move to Pakistan Unfortunately Deborah Baker never truly answers these uestions and the execution of the subject matter falls flatWhile Ms Baker uses Maryam's own correspondence she admits to rewriting it or changing it to help the flow of her story This to me fict

  10. says:

    I found this book very informative and thought provoking and also very relevant to our current geopolitical situation as it is about an American Jewish woman who disavows both her American citizenship and her Jewishness converts to Islam and moves to Pakistan Oh and she does this in the 1960s and along the way writes a series of tracts and es

Address it to the Kindle address for the device you want to send it to If you have than one Kindle u I finished this book several days ago and needed some time to think on it My rating on the book is a reflection on the book s content than the writing of the author I think the author did a fine job with the topic s content I am just finding that I m having a very negative reaction to the subject of the book Maryam Jameelah I waited for a long time to receive this book from the library there was a long waitlist Which I find interesting that there are lots of people wanting to read this book So there must be some fascination with a western woman converting to Islam After some thought I m thinking this must relate to her leaving the United States and immersing herself in purdah in Pakistan than in her conversion herself as there are reportedly some 20000 women converting to Islam in the US every year at present and there seems little American interest in this factSo I received the book from the library with much excitement ready to learn about Maryam Jameelah about her life her conversion and her time in Pakistan And to be upfront and honest I am left extremely disappointed and well angry Because I am amazed that the Muslim world embraced a as I see it from the book largely uneducated probably insane woman as an Islamic scholar largely because she abondoned the US and the West to live in Pakistan or the Dar ul Islam the land of Islam Here is a woman abondoned by her American family abandoned by 2 Pakistani families because she was SO psychologically disturbed writing numerous books on Islam as if she was a scholar on the topic And Muslim publishers published her books and distributed them to the Muslim world without caring about her ualifications Which were NOTHING She was not an expert on the West Either academically or in life She had little real world experience She hadn t traveled couldn t speak about the diversity of the American experience or the western experience Then she spoke as if she were a scholar of Islam And yet she hadn t studied the hadith didn t know ANY classical Arabic and therefore couldn t even read the ur an They all respected her ONLY because she was an American who rejected her culture and her country in favor of Islam What a low bar to setPerhaps things were different in those days and I should be grateful that things have changed Today American women converts are overwhelmingly highly educated a large number having masters degrees and are highly traveled both in the US and abroad They also study Islam intensively and therefore end up uite educated in Islamic history theology politics etc And as such they wouldn t dare to have the HUBRIS to write tracts instructing other Muslims on Islam Which I think is what blows me away about Maryam Jameelah Her sheer hubris The book even mentions the theological ideal Muslim leader He wouldn t dare offer up himself because to lead other Muslims astray the sheer danger to his soul would be SUCH a heavy burden That is the same for all religious Muslims So to see Maryam Jameelah with so little worldlifereligious knowledge try and spread her Islamic knowledge is uite shocking it s incredibly unislamic for her to do soAnd therefore that is I think what I find most upsetting about this book That people are so fascinated by this woman In 2011 people STILL want to learn from her When we have people with SO much religious knowledge SO many men and women with religious experience today from whichwhom we can learn The only true value I see in this book is that it shows who Maryam Jameelah truly is A woman who sought her own truth And I hope truly God willing she found it I hope God willing she found peace But I really hope as well that she did not bring along too many unsuspecting uneducated people down the wrong path extremism and false understandings of Islam with her And hopefully this book will shed light about her to prevent such misunderstandings from continuing to occur For those who read this book hoping to better understand the actual religion of Islam I advise seeking out those who have truly studied the theology of Islam for many years ie Fazlur Rahman Muhammad Asad Seyyid Hossein Nasr Jeffrey Lang not simply those who expound on it without knowledge
