Fatimah with Asma
About the Book
An Allegory- A Child’s (Fatimah’s) Tale
The Kuffar present the struggle between violence and reason, the war between the souls of men, of good and evil, of heroes and gods of the Millennium age, predicted that it would fall on holy lands and all the race of men. The struggle at first seems real, but belonging to the most primitive age of the history of man. The war between two civilized worlds, of the Arabs and the Red Indian Americans of the new age, and a third the primitive world, of the life of the nomadic tribes, between large expanses of land. There is a sudden change, then an invasion, a surge of a different kind followed by a massacre, then a mass exodus, an event, a migration of the multitudes. A new stage is set in the development of the Arabian social order, and during this time the Gods once again begin to reign in earthly powers. They are of gigantic size and strength, but also of great meekness, intelligence and kindness. They possess rational and moral qualities and are far removed from cunning and ingenuity for they have no need of it as possessors of truth, freedom and justice.
Fatima is united with Asma and her Parents- This is her tale
For the first time we were on the platform. We were waiting for the arrival of more Syrian refugee friends. We watched the trains come and leave. We watched the people come and go. I was so bored, so I took Asma and went into a shop and bought some crisps and biscuits. Then we ate our kit kat, but they had not arrived as yet. We sat and stared, we walked and hopped, we read the adverts, we waited for the train.
