Jazakallah to simplyislam for providing me avenue to attain this book. An important piece of literature for the ummah as a whole. A very well translated version of the book, excellent reading and relatively short. Although the tortures tend to be repetitive (graphical but suitably gruesome), it was told (and translated) in such a way that the repetitions were lost in 'transliteration'. A must read for those who want to understand the history of contemporary Islamic movement.
It has roughly 200 pages but I finished it in a total time of no more than half a day. Just as a proof; it is 'quite' good :)

This is a very emmm sad book...it gave me an insight into what happened in eygpt and how the members on ikwan were subject to torture and abuse...it was particualry very sad to know a pious woman was treated like that,the people that did that shud be so ashamed and they shud seek repentance day and night.this book is really good becuase it made me stronger in my deen and it taut me to be patient,no matter the situation and Allah should always be the first and the person i call out to....very inspirational book....its a must read! i heard of it on behind the veil on islam channel....May AllAH(SWT) bless the woman...and reward her with kindness n jannah!

A truely shocking and horrific account of what the Muslim Ummah is even experiencing today all over the World. It is an excellent wake up call to all those who what to practice the Sunnah of the Prophet (saw) who said the Ummah is like a body, if one part hurts so does the rest.
Zainab Al-Ghazali's accout of her torture at the hands of those who claim to be Muslims is awful, however her reliance on Allah (swt) is amazing. This wonderful book gives the reader the strength to leave all affairs in the hands of Allah (swt) and whatever befalls one to just Praise Allah (swt) just like Zainab Al-Ghazali.
