This miracle unfolds with historical authenticity, leaving the reader with a better understanding of the ancient world and the life-changing faith of Abraham and Sarah.

She then moves to discuss 'the matriarchal cycle' in Genesis Rabbah with its three stages And Their Children barrenness; motherhood; and succession.
In her attempt to show the linkage between Judaism and Islam, the writer surprisingly introduces a controversial subject, namely the question of change of prayer direction from facing Jerusalem to Mecca.
In Riffat's conclusion, she calls on the Muslim daughters of Hagar and all women to venture out and speaks against injustice and inequality.
