Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Dalia Shah was a European who converted to Islam. Then she met and married an Arab-European Moslem. At first things went well, but things changed. Religious differences, cultural problems, and her husband’s depression all hurt her marriage and their children.

This book tells of her early life and her dissatisfaction with Christianity in her home country. We share her travels abroad as a young woman, including a trip to Israel where she learned about Judaism. We also learn of her early studies of Buddhism. It was the Islam of the Koran that caught her, though.

Except the Islam she thought she had joined is not that of the Koran. Instead it is something skewed by people for very selfish ends. It is especially hurtful for women.

Dalia reveals the secrets of the Marriage Contract, which properly done gives the spouse ensured child, property, and divorce rights, along with freedom of travel.

The events of 9/11 absolutely effected her marriage. Her perspectives as a Christian-born European Islamic woman to the “War on Terror” and the terrorists themselves are another very interesting part of Married To Islam.

“Surprises abound here. This is a book from which Christians, Moslems, and Jews can all gain a new understanding. Any persons thinking of marrying an Islamic person should absolutely read this—the Marriage Contract information alone makes it utterly worthwhile. It was wonderful to work with Dalia. To keep such a positive spirit after all she has endured—sometimes I think she has the patience of a saint.”
—M. F. Sawyer, Coauthor

“Reading this book, I got to where I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen next.”
—Rebecca McDonald
