One womanrs"s hilarious and thought-provoking quest to find love, Muslim-style "At the age of thirteen, I knew that I was destined to marry John Travolta. One day he would arrive on my North London doorstep, fall madly in love with me, and ask me to marry him. Then he would convert to Islam and become a devoted Muslim." When Shelina Janmohamed, an Oxford-educated Muslim living in the bubbling ethnic mix of North London, opted for the traditional "arranged" route to finding a partner, she never suspected it would be the journey of her life. Through ten long years of matchmaking buxom aunties, countless mismatches, and outrageous dating disasters, Shelina discovers more about herself and her faith. Along the way, she learns that sometimes being true to her religion means challenging tradition, while readers learn much about Islam that may surprise them. Gradually, Shelinars"s search for a husband becomes more a spiritual quest of "seeking divine love through the medium of worldly love"-and in the end she is rewarded. A memoir with a hilarious twist from one of Britainrs"s leading female Muslim writers,Love in a Headscarfis an entertaining, fresh, and irresistible insight into the struggle to be thoroughly modern and thoroughly Muslim.
