“This is a magnificent collection. It’s all here: love, loss, confusion, sex, and more than sex, that magical quest for intimacy. In short, what it means to be human: seeking, finding, losing, cherishing. A wonderful contribution to American Muslim narratives in their own voices.”
—Omid Safi, author of Memories of Muhammad: Why the Prophet Matters

“This diverse and humane anthology documents what heartbreak and hilarity goes down (often in silence) in the American-Muslim community. It should also confuse government agents.”
—Ali Eteraz, author of Children of Dust: A Portrait of a Muslim as a Young Man
“Intimate and compelling, Salaam, Love is a glimpse of the emotional balancing act American Muslim men face as they navigate the demands of faith, family and their own hearts. A must-read.”
—G. Willow Wilson, author of Alif the Unseen

Salaam, Love
is an important book because it sheds light on a subject that is unknown and scary to many Americans: Muslim men and their relationship to love, sex, and intimacy. It’s a book that shows how similar we all are, how much we have in common, when there’s so much hate-based propaganda floating around about how different we all are. But beyond being an important book, it’s also a great read. Funny, sad, cool, hot, counterintuitive, and perhaps most importantly, sexy.”
—David Henry Sterry, author of Chicken: Self-Portrait of a Young Man for Rent

While many of the tales end in marriage, none ignore the flaws and difficulties presented by romantic relationships. Throughout, there are men who lost love, lost themselves and found things they weren’t looking for, as well as those still searching. Whether read all together or in single doses, faith and love abound, and there is no shortage of entertainment. In the introduction, the editors write, ‘There’s nothing like a good love story to connect us to one another and also help satisfy our curiosity about the lives of others.’ This collection proves the honesty in that assertion.” —Kirkus Reviews

Simultaneously lighthearted entertainment and an important addition to public discourse around the place of Islam in America.… Indeed, the entire collection seeks to offer as much variety as possible, with stories reflecting a broad range of sexuality, ethnicity, religiosity, and romantic success. In this way, it pushes back against common cultural stereotypes of both Muslims and men, showing Muslims with a full range of ordinary American life experiences and showing men with tender and heartfelt emotions that they articulate beautifully. For insiders to the community, this work will prompt joyful recognition as well as thoughtful exploration of different experiences; for outsiders, it will counter one-dimensional negative images about American Muslims. For everyone it will be an insightful, thoroughly charming read.” —Publishers Weekly


From the editors of the groundbreaking anthology Love, InshAllah comes a provocative new exploration of the most intimate parts of Muslim men’s lives. 
Muslim men are stereotyped as either oversexed Casanovas willing to die for seventy-two virgins in heaven or controlling, big-bearded husbands ready to rampage at the hint of dishonor. The truth is, there are millions of Muslim men trying to figure out the complicated terrain of love, sex, and relationships just like any other American man.
In Salaam, Love, Ayesha Mattu and Nura Maznavi provide a space for American Muslim men to speak openly about their romantic lives, offering frank, funny, and insightful glimpses into their hearts—and bedrooms. The twenty-two writers come from a broad spectrum of ethnic, racial, and religious perspectives—including orthodox, cultural, and secular Muslims—reflecting the strength and diversity of their faith community and of America.
By raising their voices to share stories of love and heartbreak, loyalty and betrayal, intimacy and insecurity, these Muslim men are leading the way for all men to recognize that being open and honest about their feelings is not only okay—it’s intimately connected to their lives and critical to their happiness and well-being.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A good read for Muslims and non-Muslims alike 9. Februar 2014
Von BrooklynBook - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I had the opportunity to read a few of the essays and I was instantly hooked. First, the writers are brutally honest. They bare-all with depth and sensitivity, painting vivid pictures of the human experience. Second, the essays remind us that people of faith are just that ... people. They are people with desires and flaws and conflict and excitement and hurt and curiosity. So even those who seek to live by faith -- whatever that means for them -- still are people by design and still have to navigate what comes with being human.

Lots of people are talking about this book as a stereotype-breaking collection that will challenge people's (read "Non-Muslims") impressions about Muslim men. But it will also challenge the way that Muslims think about their own men. So whoever you are, go read it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Fascinating Look into the Hearts of Men 5. Februar 2014
Von Deonna Kelli Swaine - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Salaam, Love is an excellent and enjoyable read exploring love, lust, regret and loss from a group of men often denied the opportunity to speak from the heart. The editors bring in stories from the periphery, just like they did with Love, Inshallah, in giving space to alternative narratives from men of color, queer and gay love stories, and other voices marginalized in mainstream and Muslim societies. What makes Salaam, Love so beautiful is how much hope is served up in the collection. The book isn't just about the trials of faith, culture, family and companionship -- the anthology unveils the compelling ways the male gender views love and commitment. It is rare to read such unique, sincere stories from the world of men on the wonders of affection, Muslim or not. Salaam, Love, like Love, Inshallah, affirms that the universe really is on the side of love.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Listening to people in their own voices 11. Februar 2014
Von Hussein Rashid - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Really enjoyed this follow-up to Love, Inshallah. It's great to hear the emotional voices of men, and you get a good variety of those voices here. There are stories that still stick with me, and ones that are going to end up being used in my courses. Great compilation.

4.0 von 5 Sternen American Muslim Men on Love, Sex, and Intimacy... as well as social privilege among other things 25. Februar 2014
Von Moonstalker - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I think it was a good idea to continue the project with stories from the man's side. It is difficult to review the collection because all the authors were different.

Although most literature in the world has been written by men, I nonetheless felt like I gained more insight into the male mind. Some of the stories were also sensitive and some stayed in my mind.

One main thing that stayed in my mind after reading it was how much unspoken social privilege the men had, compared to the social pressures many Muslim women face. For instance, a young man loses his virginity accidentally and feels bad about it, but it doesn't have any ramifications on his life, reputation, or chances of starting a family. Another man cheats on his wife but gets to keep his wife, and the only one who loses out is the girlfriend. (I found that story particularly one sided - she is basically demonized for seducing him, whereas last time I checked, adultery is a two-way street, and he speaks about what drove him away from his wife but not about what he must have been doing to push her away. A breakdown of a marriage is usually a two way street as well.) Most of them wrote about deciding that they wanted a certain woman, and getting her. The only one who really seemed to lack social privilege was the black man living in Japan who was rejected on account of his race, but even he didn't have a raging father to deal with afterwards like the girl did. It would have been nice if there was more self-awareness of the privilege that the men experienced, although of course it is an individual thing for an author to note.

As with the book about critique, as a Muslim, is that practising Muslims generally believe that it is out of bounds to have any physical contact with someone of the opposite gender unless they are a male relative or husband. Most of the people in the stories (males and females) did not abide by that, and that meant I couldn't relate to them.

The other thing that struck me was that some of the stories seemed immature. I don't mean to be harsh because I understand these are autobiographies, and I don't mean it for all of them. However it makes me wonder if in the eschelon of society that some of the authors in, or perhaps their generation, had some sort of social mechanism that discouraged maturity. (After all, 30 is the new 20 now.) Of course, I would reiterate this is not the case for all of them,but it was another impression.

Anyway I do think it was a good idea to put the book together and it gave me food for thought.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A powerful anthology that challenges constructions of masculinity, patriarchy, and monolithic narratives around Muslims 18. Februar 2014
Von Neederish - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book is a very quick and easy read. I recommend it for young adults and all ages above. It presents great conversation pieces for spouses/partners, friends & family, and community discussions, not to mention classrooms.

If you like this book, do not miss the opportunity to read the editors' original anthology, 'Love, InshAllah' which can also be found on Amazon (kindle and paperback).

A few things about this book were particularly powerful for me:

-The diversity, inclusiveness, and realness of experiences: people who were raised Muslim, converts, immigrants and ‘non-immigrants’, and people of various racial backgrounds, sexual orientations, degrees of religious practice, etc.
-This book challenges very core understandings and constructions of masculinity that in turn are used to justify patriarchy.

I hope the 50+ stories presented in both of these anthologies helps to challenge the monolithic narrative created and perpetuated around/about/by Muslims.
