Umm Zakiyyah’s If I Should Speak trilogy is arguably the most well-known fiction work in the Muslim fiction genre. It has earned awards, international acclaim, and movie offers, and has been translated into multiple languages.

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.”
