Pregnancy is an ultimate time to turn to Allah the Almighty. Not only is it a physical process, it is also a spiritual and emotional journey filled with excitement and apprehension. Heaven Under Your Feet accompanies sisters along this beautiful phase in life.

Whilst there is lots of advice-packed literature out there for the expectant mother, this book broaches the subject from the perspective of a Muslimah, addressing the thoughts and concerns of someone looking for an Islamic viewpoint on what is a unique and special moment in her life. The author also tackles relevant contemporary issues from a Muslim perspective.

Written in consultation with Muslim medical professionals and with invaluable input from Islamic scholars, this book deals with some much neglected issues in an accessible and engaging way. It is a useful resource for every Muslim family expecting a baby.
