This acclaimed memoir of Islamic faith, marriage, and motherhood in America is "a culturally rich and rewarding personal chronicle" (Kirkus).
Threading My Prayer Rug is the captivating tale of a woman's pursuit to define an American Muslim identity for herself. With warmth and wisdom, Sabeeha Rehman recounts a multifaceted journey: from Pakistan to the United States; from arranged marriage to lasting love match; from liberal to conservative to American Muslim; and from an immigrant who intends to return to her native country to an American citizen, business executive, grandmother, and tireless advocate for interfaith understanding.
Beginning with a moving and disarmingly funny account of her arranged marriage, Sabeeha undercuts Muslim stereotypes and offers a refreshing view of American life. She also recounts her experience of doing interfaith work with Imam Feisal A. Rauf, the driving force behind the Muslim community center near Ground Zero, when the backlash began. In a new preface, she discusses American Islam in the time of Trump.
