Dr. Robert D. Crane, advisor to former U.S. President Nixon, said of If I Should Speak: “I could not put it down…I was fascinated not only by the plot of the novel, but especially by the brilliance of the writing itself. As a life-long, professional writer and editor, I can say that I have never encountered Umm Zakiyyah’s equal in portraying the nuances of encounters between persons at all levels from the most superficial to the most profound. She is a clear example of a person who has natural talent. A person can be trained to write well, but no amount of training can bring a person without superb, natural talent to captivate the reader as she does and exert a permanent intellectual and emotional impact.”
Professor K. Bryant of Howard University said, “The novel belongs to…a genre worthy of scholarly study.”

Description

Book 1 If I Should Speak:

After a fight with her roommate, Tamika is forced to move out of her room and finds herself living with Dee and Aminah, two Muslims on opposite ends of their commitment to Islam. Tamika is immediately drawn to Dee, who shares her love for singing and her frustration with an overly religious, unsupportive mother. Captivated by Dee’s magnetic personality and powerful singing voice, Tamika has found both a friend and mentor in life. As the seeds of friendship are sown between them, the doors of fame are beginning to open for Tamika. But a religion class assignment incites spiritual turmoil, and Tamika is unprepared for the one obstacle that stands in her way to success.

Book 2 A Voice:
Now Muslim, Tamika must face her Christian mother who instilled in her a love for Christ and made church the heartbeat of the family. Torn between her dedication to Islam, the longing of her soul, and her mother, the longing of her heart—her “lifeline,” Tamika struggles to find peace somewhere in between. But she finds that something must give.
Book 3 Footsteps: 
At the heart of the novel are Ismael and his wife Sarah. Married for twenty-six years and having accepted Islam on a journey they took together, Ismael and Sarah have what every marriage couple hopes to achieve. Stability, dedication, and a comfortable life. But as the story unfolds, the hairline fractures in their marriage become visible, and the fractures become splintering cracks as Sarah discovers a detrimental secret her husband has kept from her for four months.
In the face of his wife’s discovery, Ismael is torn between the love and security of his marriage, and the natural inclinations any man must temper in a world full of choices, and devastating consequences.
