ZAINAB AL-GHAZALI AL-JUBAILI was born in Egypt in 1917. At the age of twenty she formed a major women's charitable organization which rendered valuable service to the poor, orphans and the underprivileged. Although she had acquaintance with Shaikh Hasan al-Banna, the founder of the Ikhwan, since the late 30s, and actively participated in many Islamic programmes, she formally joined the Muslim Brotherhood (al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun) in 1948. After the assassination of Hasan al-Banna in 1949, she played a major role in the re-organization of the Muslim Brotherhood. She was arrested in 1965 for an alleged conspiracy to kill Jamal 'Abd al-Nasir and overthrow his government. She was released from prison in 1971 during Anwar Sadat's presidency. In addition to being very active in Da'wah work, Zainab al-Ghazali has been a prolific writer, contributing regularly to major Islamic journals and periodicals. Her latest book is a two-volume study on the Tafsir of the Qur'an.
RETURN OF THE PHARAOH relates how, falsely accused of conspiring to kill Jamal 'Abd al-Nasir the President of Egypt in 1965, the author was arrested and imprisoned. While awaiting trial, she was subjected to the most terrible and inhuman torture. This book describes in a captivating manner the ordeal which this Muslim activist went through in the notorious Egyptian prisons. Instead of dampening her enthusiasm for Islam and the Islamic movement, the afflictions and savageries in Nasir's prisons increased her commitment and dedication to the cause of Islam. This autobiographical work can be considered a historic document in that its author was an active witness to one of the most volatile periods of Egypt's contemporary history.

Salam, 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 :) Read more review on the book at my blog

This is a very emmm sad gave me an insight into what happened in eygpt and how the members on ikwan were subject to torture and 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.
