'Writing is an extreme privilege but it's also a gift. It's a gift to yourself and it's a gift of giving a story to someone'
~ Amy Tan

I'm very pleased and proud to announce that my both books : "A Silent Prayer" and "A Prayer Heeded" have been awarded HONORABLE MENTIONS in 2014 New York Book Festival. This is the third award for "A Silent Prayer" in three months besides Los Angeles Book Festival and Paris Book Festival (winner in both). I believe God is being really kind to me these days so thank you God for showering me with so many blessings. I feel honored and highly privileged.

#Book Review of #APrayerHeeded from #ReadersFavorite - https://readersfavorite.com/book-review/31263

Reviewed by Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite

I read and reviewed the first novel in the A Prayer Series. I loved A Silent Prayer and since its ending was an unqualified cliff-hanger I just had to read A Prayer Heeded. This second book of the Prayer Series opens with Adam and Rania separated and miserable. Adam has let jealousy and alcohol cause him to lose the only thing he really cares about: Rania's trust. Meanwhile Rania is not only broken-hearted but financially broke and living in a shelter. It appears it's going to take a miracle to get the two lovers back together, but there is no doubt that they belong together.

Samreen Ahsan has done it again. Rarely have I seen such an artful blend of mysticism, magic, and realism in a story, especially a story that is essentially a love story. Samreen Ahsan unfolds her story with a very deft and talented hand. The major question of A Prayer Heeded is whether or not Adam and Rania will be together and we are unsure about this until the very last page. There are powerful forces at work in the lives of Adam and Rania. Some of them are good, but some of them are evil and Samreen Ahsan is a master at moving the story along while keeping the suspense level high. The Prayer Series was inspired by the Holy Qur'an and in this time of so much mistrust and misunderstanding between Islam and the West this book can help bridge the gap bet

All our life, we strive hard to be a good #Christian / #Jew / #Muslim to please #God , and in this race, we forget to be a good #human being.

Just finished reading "The fault in our stars" --- I'd like to rate more than 5-stars to it. I'm not sure where to start for this beautiful book. It has left me speechless and unable to write anything because I know anything I'd write about this soulful book would not do justice to the story. It's beautifully crafted with the story of Hazel Grace who has cancer and meets a guy Augustus Waters (another cancer patient) and they both fall in love. Although I knew the book would have a tragic end, still, the conversation between Hazel and Augustus kept me smiling all the time. It was heart-wrenching to know that they won't last but I still hoped of some miracle. I simply loved this book and would recommend everyone to read it--no matter if you read romance or not...just read it. It will make you cry and laugh at the same time. 

“I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”
