Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up–This advice book for Muslim teens covers such topics as alcohol, modesty, music, pornography, the Internet, friends, suicide, abuse, and more. The authors adhere to a fairly strict interpretation of the Qu'ran, so there is no reference whatsoever to dating and they advocate as much separation of the genders as possible. There is also no reference to LGBTQ issues, which is in keeping with the conservative tenor of the book. The approach is positive, encouraging young Muslims to be respectful of both themselves and others. The cover and chapter titles would suggest that the language is teen-friendly, but the tone of the text is academic, dealing more with the Qu'ranic justifications for Islamic law than with helpful advice for reconciling these laws with Western culture. This volume will certainly be what some Muslim teens are looking for, but will not appeal to all. The lack of an index also impedes access to information. Dilara, Iman, & Yasmine Hafiz's The American Muslim Teenager's Handbook (Acacia, 2007) covers similar material with a more liberal and teen-friendly approach. Purchase where titles of a more conservative nature are needed.–Kristin Anderson, Columbus Metropolitan Library System, OHα(c) Copyright 2010.

By Salwa Barhumi on August 21, 2011
Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book. Each chapter is a separate entity so you may jump around. It is wonderful for high school and college students struggling with keeping their hearts clean. It's great to read on your own or to use for a halaqa. The chapters are short and to the point and very engaging. I love the practical solutions at the end of each chapters. I highly recommend this book.

This is a great book to buy for teens! It addresses many issues that and concerns that are relevant to our society, but from an educated Muslim American perspective. When was the last time someone talked about "taboo" topics such as pornography or depression and other mental illnesses? The book deals with difficult ideas such as the ones mentioned above and also everyday questions and struggles that the average Muslim teen deals with on a daily basis--parents, culture gaps, social media, parties, drugs, etc. The War Within Our Hearts is a fun (and funny at times!) and insightful read written by two people who know what today's teens are going through, since they've already been there and done exactly that!

This book has practical advice and heartfelt insights on correcting one's life and sticking to the straight path as a Muslim. It is aimed at the youth but anyone can (and should) read it. The best parts are the examples from real life, present and history, that strongly illustrate the message.

I've used this book as a teacher with middle and high school students at Islamic school. I feel it is an 'essential read' for the young Muslim teen. I think that the writing and issues resonate with the youth and it allows sensitive topics to be discussed in a manner that is approachable and necessary. Some chapters are dated (i.e. the one on social media) but overall the book is still incredibly relevant.
