Overview

Ruby Moore, better known as Umm Zakiyyah, internationally acclaimed author of the If I Should Speak trilogy, introduces readers to a new genre in her debut juvenile fiction story A Friendship Promise.

Maryam, the main character of this short novel, is the daughter of strict Pakistani-American parents who decide to bend their rules to help a divorced American convert to Islam, whose free-spirited daughter Samira is in need of Muslim friends.

Though written for young adults, the story is sure to captivate readers of all ages; and, like the inspirational novels for which the author is worldly renowned, the story promises to stay with readers long after the book is closed.

Meet the Author

Ruby Moore is better known as Umm Zakiyyah, author of the If I Should Speak trilogy, Realities of Submission, and Hearts We Lost. A Friendship Promise is her first juvenile fiction story. She chose the pen name Ruby Moore to introduce her young adult writing and to revive her original family name. Her parents, Clark and Delores Moore, chose the family name “Siddeeq” after they accepted Islam in 1975, the year the author was born. They subsequently changed their names to Muhammad and Fareedah and added Baiyinah to the author’s name.

“I realize how important it is to leave a legacy,” the author says. “When you leave a legacy, your family history is part of that legacy, and it all begins with a name.”
