Laughing All The Way To The Mosque

by Zarqa Nawaz

HarperCollins Publishers Ltd. | June 24, 2014 | Hardcover

Laughing All The Way To The Mosque is rated 4.33333333333333 out of 5 by 3.

Zarqa Nawaz has always straddled two cultures. She's just as likely to be agonizing over which sparkly earrings will "pimp out" her hijab as to be flirting with the Walmart meat manager in a futile attempt to secure halal chicken the day before Eid. Little Mosque on the Prairie brought Zarqa's own laugh-out-loud take on her everyday culture clash to viewers around the world. And now, in Laughing All the Way to the Mosque, she tells the sometimes absurd, sometimes challenging, always funny stories of being Zarqa in a western society. From explaining to the plumber why the toilet must be within sitting arm's reach of the water tap (hint: it involves a watering can and a Muslim obsession with cleanliness "down there") to urging the electrician to place an eye-height electrical socket for her father-in-law's epilepsy-inducing light-up picture of the Kaaba, Zarqa paints a hilarious portrait of growing up in a household where, according to her father, the Quran says it's okay to eat at McDonald's-but only if you order the McFish.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Laughing All the way to the Mosque Breathtaking irreverent humour which never misses the mark but nevertheless leaves the mark brighter and beloved . Thanks Zarqa for saying the stuff most of us are afraid to say. You make it clear that indeed we are one human family.
