Product description

This observant, witty book reveals the conventions that govern Muslim society - and charts the unwitting mistakes Westerners can makes when meeting Muslims. 'This book is for Christians venturing among Muslims,' explains Christine Mallouhi. 'It assumes that Christians will want to live honourable among Muslims for Christ's sake, and explores what that means...I am the Western wife of an Arab from a conservative Muslim family. My stories are from the shadow side of Muslim culture, which is invisible to most Westerners.' Her themes include: * status * the place of women * the veil * stereotypes * segregation and restrictions * family life * hospitality and witness
