The Kindness of Enemies by Leila Aboulela

The Caine Prize for African writing in 2000, Leila Aboulela is dependably energetically clear, however her private stories additionally have a profundity and weight to them that stays with you long after you’ve put the book down.

however there is no lack of common journalists expounding on religion, Leila Aboulela is the uncommon turn around, an author whose profound Muslim confidence invigorates her investigations of Islamic personality in the mainstream world.

Every part of The Kindness of Enemies starts in introduce day Scotland—where a history teacher must think about how to react to an understudy of hers, she has been told, who has progressed toward becoming “radicalized”— before moving over into the 1850s, where we get the narrative of her understudy’s progenitor, the Imam Shamil, whose 30-year crusade against the extending Russian domain remains as a standout amongst the best military jihads ever. Be that as it may, as with the greater part of Leila Aboulela’s books, her concentration is basically close, the tale of little lives and cherishes; against the scenery of war and domain, Leila Aboulela’s eye is on human stories about the lost confidence and the lost kids, some of which are some of the time discovered once more.
