      (ما أسوأ أن تملك وطناَ من غير رجالما أسوأ أن تغرس شجراً من غير ظلالما أسوأ أن تحمل جرحاً والبرء محالوطنيلا أملك شيئاً يا وطني غير الكلماتلكن هل تحي الكلمات من ماتواهل تجدي الكلمة في الأموات )رغم كل شئ تبقى ذكرى الأندلس مفجرة لمشاعر الحزن والأسى بداخلنا , تقول بقى : إنه في الأصل [...]

      تدور أحداث هذه الرواية في قرية صغيرة تسمى بالهذيل على مقربة من مدينة غرناطة الأندلسية تعيش فيها عائلة عربية مسلمة هاجرت من شبة الجزيرة العربية الى الأندلس، يحكي طارق علي بسرديته الممتعة كيف تحولت حياة هذه العائلة التي كانت تعيش في رغد العيش تحت الحكم الإسلامي للأندلس من سعا [...]

      Though this is historical fiction, Ali's novel provides a window on the late 15th century world of al Andalus Spain, a world where Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand and the powerful heads of the Church have battled their way back to power in most of the country and have made treaties with the remaining Muslim population. These treaties promise freedom of life and religion and peace but it seems that the Queen and certain of the church leaders have other plans. Soon acts of violence against Musli [...]

      Entertaining, and might be useful to make some people acquainted with the tragedy of the Spanish Moriscos. Nonetheless, the author passed some important historical errors. One of those - the plot is in Granada around 1499-1500. There are Jews at the service of Christians or living among the Moriscos, and they have Jewish names That is simply impossible, since Jews had been unfortunately expelled from Spain in 1492. Those who remained were officially Christians and, as such, couldn't have had Jew [...]

      إن كل سقوط تاريخي/سياسي هو في الأصل سقوط أخلاقي سقطت أخلاق اهل الأندلس فتناحروا و تشاحنوا فسقطت الأندلس و إلى ذاك سنؤول إن لم نستعد رشدنا!بالطبع لا مجال لمقارنة الرواية بثلاثية غرناطة! هذا من باب التحيز للرواية و كاتبتها و أيضا من باب الموضوعية ربما أشاءت الترجمة إلى الصياغة [...]

      This tragically beautiful tale of the aftermath of the Reconquest of Moorish Spain is told through the lives of three generations of a noble Muslim family living near Grenada. The promises of tolerance betrayed by Ferdinand and Isabella, the story revolves around the family's attempt to survive a sadistic Cardinal intent on the destruction of not just their existence, but every memory of them, their faith and their way of life. While the Catholic Church is the ostensible bad actor in this story, [...]

      I write this review after the close defeat of a potential US Senator, who believed among other things, that a Muslim should not serve in the US Senate because he wouldn’t swear on the Bible (said douche bag also believes that women should stay in the home and that sex with 14-year-old girls when you’re in your 30s is okay). This defeat occurred shortly after a sitting US president retweet the unverified “news” tweets of a British hate group. The tweets showed video supposedly showing Mus [...]

      This book is good. The writing style did not grab me, but it confirmed the little I previously knew about the Moors in Spain and their expulsion during the Inquisition. I didn't know previously that it was Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand, the ones who sent Columbus to discover America, that were also behind the terrible Spanish Inquisition! The book brought to life the fall of Granada, the terrible burning of all the Arabic litterature, except for a few hundred medical science books. Furthermo [...]

      Actually it deserves 3.8. I won't deny that I really loved this novel, loved its characters, shared their feelings,dreams.c, even was saddened at their death.The writer succeeded in portraying life at Andalusia, throughout the book you can see the gardens, the streams, smell the food. the characters are vivid and alive. Also he succeeded in showing how the muslims were civilized, how they carried the light to Europe and also their superiority to their European foes in different aspects of life.E [...]

      This novel by Tariq Ali is the first book in the “Islam Quintet, a series of stand alone novels based on different periods of Islamic history. Shadows of the Pomegranate Tree takes place in Granada, Al Andalous, Spain 1499, a time when when the Castilian Christians had just taken over Granada, the last of the Arab-Muslim cities. Anyone familiar with this time in history will know that these stories will always be sad. Under "Moorish" rule Christians and Jews were allowed to freely practice the [...]

      3.5 stars. Good but it didn't blow me away. I enjoyed it sufficiently to want to read the second in the quintet, however. Some of the writing, particularly the descriptions of the Andalusian landscape, is beautiful. Towards the end, despite its inevitability and the author's forewarning, the horror and heartbreak of the outcome still took me by surprise.I found this an honest account of a terrible period in Spanish history. The Moors had ruled for centuries, tolerating any and all religions. The [...]

      I've finished re-reading Shadows of the Pomegranate Tree, and it seems to me that it's a celebration and testimony to all the cherished parts of Andalusian culture. Many aspects continued in Arabic and Mediterranean cultures, and many have of course changed since the sixteenth century. Those that have changed are recounted with nostalgia (for example, early cooking, medicine, and arts). Those that have not changed are presented with joy (for example, varying shades of religiosity among Muslims, [...]

      Lo tuve que dejar cuando llevaba como un tercio o así. Demasiado para mí. Narra las vicisitudes que atraviesan los habitantes de una aldea granadina, Al-Hudayl, tras la conquista del reino de Granada por los Reyes Católicos. Al autor se le ve venir: los musulmanes son cultos, tolerantes, guapos, limpios y progres. Los cristianos son analfabetos, intolerantes, asesinos y guarros. Llegué hasta que los moros, hartos de humillaciones, planean levantarse contra el poder cristiano. Lo que sigue lo [...]

      في الحقيقة الرواية بحد ذاتها لا تعاني من الاسلوب، او ترابط الاحداث لكن لدي شكوكي في دقة الوصف الاخلاقي لتاريخ الاندلس، ليس كنوع من التعصب للاسلام ولكن عقلي لم يقتنع ان المسلمين الذين لاقوا أشد أنواع التعذيب وبقوا على دينهم هم زناة و لوطين ومخمورين حيث أظهرت الرواية إلمامهم [...]

      سمعت إن الكتب خان ترجمت خماسية الإسلام لطارق علي، الحقيقة مكنتش أعرف حاجة عن خماسية الإسلام في الأساس. عرفت إن الترجمة لطيفة للكاتب الباكستاني البريطاني، فقررت ابدأ بالجزء الأول "ظلال شجرة الرمان". الكاتب حكّاء ماهر. ينسج تاريخ أسرة كوّنت قرية الهذيل في غرناطة. يمكن حبيّت ال [...]

      This is a book that narrates a fatal clash of cultures while shining a realistic and never pandering light on its subjects. The author shows that neither side is neither is totally without blame at the time of the Reconquista, the way they referred to the reclaiming of Andalusia by the Christians from the Moors, but history does show that the Muslims of that time were at least willing to allow members of other faiths to live in their midst without having to convert to Islam. You see Christian ch [...]

      جاءت الرواية في شطري سردٍ متداخلين؛ الأول: جاء في وصف لأسلوب حياة بني هديل العائلية وعاداتهم، تحديداً عائلة ابن الفارض، حيث كانوا يعيشون في رفاهية باذخة، وهي صورة لنمط معيشة نبلاء المسلمين في الأندلس بشكل عام، ولكنهم كانوا مسلمين بعيدين جداً عن مرتكزات الدين الإسلامي، فقد [...]

    28. Travelin

      Tariq Ali's history begins as a tedious fable, gains speed and some emotional complexity with exceptionally twisted romantic intrigues, and ends as a knight's quest, in an oddly Christian tradition. If we are to believe Ali's version of history, the Moors spent the final 200 years of their power bedding other men and family members. His Moors do offer any number of reasons for why they face impending doom from Christians. They are usually complaints regarding Moorish political leaders, but sheer [...]
