Book Review: Alif – Episode #4 (By Umera Ahmed)


The fourth episode is out already and I am two days late. I am living in a parallel universe these days.


The fourth episode starts with a letter from Abdul Alaa to Husn-e-Jehan. There is a mystery and both Abdul Alaa and Husn-e-Jehan are apologetic to each other. The mystery is just as annoying to the readers as it was for young Qalb-e-Momin.

They move to Pakistan.

Momina’s track was sad and tragic, that she had to arrange for mlney with great difficulty to get the dead body of her deceased brother. Momin’s track was also saddening when Abdul Alaa prays to Allah to bring Momin to right track.

The sadness has the trademark Umera style… the sadness that makes me want to give up on everything else and just ponder about my own relation with Allah and the blessings that He has showered upon me, despite my worldly sins.

Allah hum sabko sirat-e-mustaqeem par chalnay ki taufeeq ataa Kate. Ameen.

اللہ تعالیٰ ہم سب کو صراط مستقیم پر چلنے کی توفیق عطا فرمائے۔آمین۔
