Umera A The one missing star because of all the loop holes in the story. English readers and writers both should read this book. In short the novel is full waste of time unlike the other novels of Umera Ahmed. While it didnt do that, this book did however confirm my misgivings about it. Despite all this, I decided to give it a read and after twenty-five months of reading the sequel I’ll say I’m still as ambivalent as I was before I started reading it. Maybe my looking lens is clouded with judgement but I just couldn’t bring myself to reconcile with this image. Paperback , Anniversary Edition , pages. I don’t thing I’m going to read it again anytime soon

After admitting this dream and asking Salar to make her a dream home, Salar gives her are-you-crazy look and says her demands are impossible to meet, she immediately shuts off and thinks he is making fun of her dreams. While reading Aab e hayat I was like that there is no need to write second part of peer e kamil. I have my compliments and appreciation as well as my issues and concerns which I AM going to give rant to but my honest opinion is that Umera has outdone herself. Ayesha and Jibraeel had a perfect conversation in the end, Raeesa’s story although not clear was satisfactory. However she left the job a few years back in order to devote her full attention to writing. I think it is something which each one of us should apply in our life.

The courtship is hyat but the jealousy is just not cutting it, it was just a bit over the line. Jun 21, Natasha rated it it was ok. Humain was my favourite character among all the characters introduced in the sequel.

Maybe my looking lens is clouded with judgement but I just couldn’t bring myself to reconcile with this image. Won’t recommend this book to anyone as the story doesn’t have any plot just a few characters of previous book around which a long book has been made still wonder what was the point in making a part 2, Well I hope there is no any part 3 coming up plz no or sequel of anyother Umera Ahmed’s masterpieces in the pipeline.

She sulk because Salar didn’t say good morning, or had breakfast with her or say she looks pretty in blue while she was wearing purple etc etc Seems a little judgemental and needs more thinking and exploration into the heart of the matter.


Q and they actually prepared for contest but for Humain they were no challenge at all It is an awesome story and I want to read it again and again. The preface says that its about the system of interest and how those Muslims who use it in any way lose their duniya and akhirah. Strong characters, beautiful relationships and emotional associations, a masterpiece!!!! We didn’t get some answers. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. F Sheikh rated it it was amazing.

Dec 30, Rameez Ahmad rated it it was ok. But honestly I only liked the last 2 or 3 chapters of the novel in which there was something serious going on other than Umama and salaar’s repeatative story. Maybe because he was the only kid who was shown closer to Imama maybe even her favorite child 5.

A very very important read at a very important stage in my life. Let me know if it’s worth another chance and I might try DNFed. We all also know of the Hadith where Omar’s sister asked him to make Wudu before reading the reading the Quran when he was a non-Muslim and the opinion of certain scholars like Ibn Abideen Shami RA is that non-Muslims are obliged to perform a ritual bath for touching it.

Aab-e-Hayyat by Umera Ahmed – Episode 4

Dec 01, H. Of ahmedd the trials and tribulations, of all the insecurities and concerns, there is always going to be one Savior, One and the Only and that would be ”Tawakkul ILallah”.

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. For me Peer-e-Kamil ended with Salaar and Imama’s reunion. The best story finishes.

Aab-e-Hayyat by Umera Ahmed – Episode 4 – Urdu Novels

I’m still not sure about the end because it was very ambiguous and left a lot of questions unanswered. I was quite hesitant in reading the sequel to epksode e kamil, one of my favourite books, scared to ruin it but well I wasn’t disappointed. However she left the job a few years back in order to devote her full attention to writing. I loved the book: It was just so unrealistic and so forceful.


I didn’t like how the characters felt out-of-character and how the story went to another level. The best thing about this book was its conscious effort against the abolishment of usury, Epislde am very proud of and heartily praise Umerw efforts on this behalf.

We fall for the stereotypes and they exploit our respect for them. At first author said that she spent her life in extreme conditions,but suddenly she demanded a mansion with a river and all facilities of the world.

And their children are also the best one. There is no continuation of characters as in their personalities are poles apart from the way they were depicted in Peer e Kaamil. A girl who took big brave decisions in the muera book suddenly turns into a Mary Sue!?!

Indeed a good novel by Umera Ahmed and like as my friend had said, only if it wasn’t related to Peer-e-Kaamil, I would have given it more stars.

Imama and Salar have had their love story told, they are finally together and now they have to decide what kind of a life they are going to lead together.

The one missing star because of all the loop holes in the story. This made characters very bland with hauat of awesomeness here and there. May 06, Neha Najam rated it really liked epjsode. Jun 05, Seher Alvi rated it did not like it. Imama Hashim I still like her. For me this is all very unexpected from Umama who fell in love with Jalal after hearing his ‘Naat’. She not only read these but cherish all of her books as well, and while reading places herself as female lead and Jalal as male lead, no wonder she is messed-up in the upper department.

Get ready to read more about Salar and Imama’s life.
