I am unable to understand what was yb with Imama? A girl who had taken big brave decisions in her life suddenly turned into a typical brown woman. I better say they were not haayt Salar and Imama we had read. View all 22 comments. Starting off, there’s much to be said about this book which will gradually unfold. I have my compliments and appreciation as well as my issues and concerns which I AM going to give rant to but my honest opinion is that Umera has outdone herself.

The plot has gotten so much better, I have got to say. As she herself has said, that in its way, this book is idealistic but I noveo we do need ideals to build upon, badly. It’s hard but I am going to try to be very sincere with my review, and it is going Starting off, there’s much to be said about this book which will gradually unfold. It’s hard but I am going to try to be very sincere with my review, and it is going to offend like I was offended by the book many a time.

I liked the book but I cannot say I loved the book because I did not. I am going to write what I felt, my truth, the good and the bad.

Aab-e-Hayat was well-researched and the references were well placed, I thoroughly enjoyed them where expression was good except at points when bad grammar was used, it sounded like name-dropping or the use of English seemed pretentious. The best thing about this book was its conscious effort against the abolishment of usury, I am very proud of and heartily praise Umera’s efforts on this behalf.

But Aab-e-Hayat transcends that, it’s a neatly and deftly woven tapestry of interconnected stories, people, and timelines. Imama and Salar have had their love story told, they are finally together and now they have to decide what kind of a life they are going to lead together.

They begin their journey together not without a few bumps along the road but love triumphs and religion conquers all, sounds very deus ex machina, doesn’t it. It’s all very nice and gooey and romantic but for someone like me, it seems a little pretentious and a little too easy. But, again, the question we all have to ask ourselves is that is it not what we all want in a novel.

It felt a bit like milking it. I just cannot bring myself to understand how, even once, can Salar act indifferent like that, so soon after he finally has got the love of his life in his life.

The courtship is sweet but the jealousy is just not cutting it, it was just a bit over the line. Maybe I’m an over-zealous fan of the Imama-Salar enterprise who isn’tI u,era that with the storyline it really was hard to accommodate, it was done with grace but I think the gap between the two books aymed been better bridged, another incident of the success of a franchise going to people’s heads maybe on both sides.


Another grievance I have with Aab-e-Hayat or may be Umera is that why is she so, oh-so-typical at times. Like I love her and all, she is my idol as a writer, she can awaken keen sensations in me and drive me to tears but this bias, this stereotyping, it gets on my nerves.

She can seek abs from her family with strangers for freedom of religion but she cannot help Salar in the biggest venture of his life more than giving him advice and looking after his haywt like she can have no role besides being a housewife. And, y’all please tell me, is there not another respectable profession besides business and medicine?.

Because Umera’s writing is making me think that if Imama were a doctor, not a chemist she would’ve been a more active contributor to society I rolled my eyes so many times.

And then, when we hear that Anaya has never had any male friends much less close male friends because SHE has been brought up like that when at the same time it’s no big deal that her older brother Jibreel has been making female friends freely, ungrudgingly and can go see a woman alone at her apartment, and her hhayat brother can have girl-friends from an early age, Umera!

Another point that really gutted me was how could Imama take palmistry so lightly, Salar be shaking hands with women, holding and giving his name to a girl who was not his child, and Aeb be holding hands with Ayesha, given their background and after mention after mention ny the proper application of religion. Another thing really troubling me is that it should nvel been explained why it was questionable for a non-Muslim to be allowed to touch and read the Arabic text of Qur’an to whmed the possibility of misleading the unaware reader because: The prophet PBUH said: We all also know of the Hadith where Omar’s sister asked him to make Wudu before reading the reading the Quran when he was a non-Muslim and the opinion of certain scholars like Ibn Abideen Shami RA is that non-Muslims are obliged to perform a ritual bath for touching it.

Ahmd thing I have to say is that given that they live in America and all, Imama wears hijab, her husband and eldest son are Hafiz-e-Qur’an have memorized the Qur’an and their household is quite religious but the girls’ appearance remained unaffected by the environment in their home.

And isn’t Hameen financially backing Raeesa’s intended’s enemies so that she can have the marriage she wants wrong? Having said all that, the novel is not without its merits. I just want to point out the demerits with the merits. It has its issues but the novel is well-rounded and resourceful. I loved that the love of Salar and Imama imera beyond everything, growing stronger every minute, though I would have liked to watch them getting there, talking more about the old days, reminiscing the circumstances that lead them together.

I wanted to hear the lovers talk, their whispers but, apparently that’s not the Pakistani Urdu novelist’s style. This is not Salar and Imama’s story, this is the story of posterity.

آبِ حیات (Aab-e-Hayat) (Peer-e-Kamil, #2) by Umera Ahmed

The ajmed of Saad’s Salar’s friend from Yale’s days family was a cautionary tale for me. It presented a frightening side of our society, I was scared for myself. I loved how Umera was willing to talk about the horrors and the dark side of our society, it was a bold step using almost the exact harsh and curse words, to tell the truth.

It was very cool that Saad finally had his redemption after and through another generation. But what baffles me, is that, all these people knowing more about religion than apparently anyone else, as the author herself has said, could be so misguided.


Seems a little judgemental and needs more thinking and exploration into the heart of the matter. The answer cannot be that simple. And ab disapproval of veiled women doesn’t escape the notice either. She should’ve set her bias aside before sitting to write his book.

The redemption of characters was exemplary, the mention of old home, Alzheimer’s and the family reunion was very apt, it really hit the mark.

All the time I thought Salar was going to die but to my hidden relief he hayst. But, what I think would have been poetic justice and more realistic, even if I agree with Umera’s vision for her character as well was for Salar to have succumbed to disease and for Imama specially and his children, the boys and the girls, to carry on his legacy. The best part is Dr. I loved it so much just like I loved Imama’s perpetual counsel to Salar on the topic.

I asked myself, after going through all those hardships, how could she be so greedy, it was just so incomprehensible to me. But it was compensated very well by the end of the book. Even if Umera is essentially portraying the characters as enjoying the fruits of their hard work but it is an undeniable fact that they are coming from privileged backgrounds.

I felt that the rich are entitled to even their IQ’s. Maybe my looking lens is clouded with judgement but I just couldn’t bring myself byy reconcile with this image. It was refreshingly unconventional.

آبِ حیات (Aab-e-Hayat)

Raeesa going back to find her roots, clearing Salar’s name was definitely a very bold and a good choice. Her social work was a nice touch, the icing on the cake. I really enjoyed her storyline. Umera portrayed the Western society quite accurately and I was really impressed with the CIA breaking the engaged couple apart, it really was amusing as much as it was clever and accurate. Umera’s knowledge and research about secret agencies is impressive.

Overall it was an absorbing, engaging and somewhat eye-opening read. I am better for having byy it. Maybe I am biased, maybe it’s hard for me to be objective but these are the things I felt and I have to be true to myself. I am sorry if I inadvertently hurt someone by my opinions. I would love to know your opinions and please tell me if you find any loopholes in movel review. I tried my best to be sincere in my efforts.

Despite all this, I decided to give it a read and after twenty-five months of reading the sequel I’ll say I’m still as ambivalent as I was before I started reading it. The first episode served more as a teaser and was very promising bythe look of it.
