Her articles outlined a pristine view of Islam and sought to establish the truth of the religion through debates with its critics.

She sharpened the focus of the Muslim polemic against the West and laid out the revivalist critique of Christianity, Judaism, and secular Western thought in methodic fashion.

Her writings in recent years embody this change in orientation and reveal the influence of traditional Islam. Today she lives in Lahore and continues to write on Islamic thought and life.

MARYAM JAMEELAH

Maryam Jameelah "My professor, Rabbi Abraham Isaac Katsh, the head of the department of Hebrew Studies there, spared no efforts to convince his students-- all Jews, many of whom aspired to become rabbis - that Islam was derived from Judaism. Our textbook, written by him, took each verse from the Quran, painstakingly tracing it to its allegedly Jewish source. Although his real aim was to prove to his students the superiority of Judaism over Islam, he convinced me diametrically of the opposite. This book, comprising various essays by her, some of which were written even before she formally, embraced Islam.
