Dr. Susan Corso: 'Untold: A History of the Wives of Prophet Muhammad': Demystifying Islam's First Women

Dr. Susan Corso: ‘Untold: A History of the Wives of Prophet Muhammad’: Demystifying Islam’s First Women.

Susan Corso says in her review:

“Tamam Kahn, a Sufi, has written a remarkable book. Just as Anita Diamant gave us the Jewish matriarchs in “The Red Tent,” and just as Marion Zimmer Bradley gave us the perspective of the women of the Arthurian legends in “The Mists of Avalon,” Tamam Kahn teases out, uncovers and re-imagines the women who surrounded Muhammad.”

This book was also reviewed here on this blog a few weeks ago. And although slightly different in approach, I am glad that the book is getting the notice that it deserves. Tamam Kahn did a wonderful job in her research and in her ability to connect with these people from so long ago and bring them to life again in this century. The book is available on Amazon.com for those of you who wish to purchase it.
