Ethar El-Katatney

Book

Forty Days and Forty Nights in Yemen, published by Taha Publishers in London, is available for purchase on amazon.co.uk. The book details the author’s experiences while living in Tarim, a small village in Yemen, for one summer.

Tarim is the setting of a forty day Dowra (intensive course in traditional Islamic sciences)that was attended by Ethar El-Katatney in Summer 2008 for the purpose of religious learning and self development. This photo-diary weaves together her life-changing experiences, the fascinating people that she met, the historic places she visited and a few of the pearls of wisdom that were passed onto her by the respected scholars that she was privileged enough to spend time with. The reader is given a portrait of a place where real Islam has penetrated the heart of the people and is truly a way of life.
