“The Jewel of Medina”

A’isha bint Abi Bakr is the daughter of a rich merchant from Mecca in the harsh, exotic world of seventh-century Arabia at the time of the foundation of Islam. When she is married to the Prophet Muhammad at the age of nine, she must rely on her wits, her courage, and even her sword in a struggle to control her own destiny and carve out a place for herself in the community, fighting religious persecution, jealous sister-wives, political rivals, and her own temptations. As she grows to love her kind, generous husband, her ingenuity and devotion make her an indispensable advisor to Muhammad. Ultimately, she becomes one of the most important women in Islam, and a fierce protector of her husband’s words and legacy.

Ini kutipan dari Novel “The Jewel of Medina” karya Sherry Jones yang menceritakan kisah fiktif A’isha, pengantin anak-anak Nabi Muhamad, yang dengan pandai, keberanian dan pedang melawan kekuatan Islam yang ada. Dasar historis kisah ini bukanlah fiktif karena Sherry Jones hampir enam tahun lamanya melakukan penelitian terhadap budaya, sejarah, dan bahasa Arab pada abad ke 8.

Buku ini sedang ramai dibicarakan dan kemungkinan akan menuai efek seperti Salman Rushdie dengan bukunya “Satanic verses”.
