I liked the book but I cannot say I loved the book because I did not. I am going to write what I felt, my truth, the good and the bad. Aab-e-Hayat was well-researched and the references were well placed, I thoroughly enjoyed them where expression was good except at points when bad grammar was used, it sounded like name-dropping or the use of English seemed pretentious.
But Aab-e-Hayat transcends that, it's a neatly and deftly woven tapestry of umera ahmed novel aab e hayat stories, people, and timelines. Imama and Salar have had their love story told, they are finally together and now they have to decide what kind of a life they are going to lead together.
They begin their journey together not without a few bumps along the road but love triumphs and religion conquers all, sounds very deus ex machina, doesn't it. Aab E Hayat Complete Novel By Umera Ahmed Download It's all very nice and gooey and romantic but for someone like me, it seems a little pretentious and a little too easy. But, again, the question we all have to ask ourselves is that is it not what we all want in a novel.
It felt a bit like milking it. I just cannot bring myself to understand how, even once, can Salar act indifferent like that, so soon umera ahmed novel aab e hayat he finally has got the love of his life in his life.
The courtship is sweet but the jealousy is just not cutting it, it was just a bit over the line. Having said all that, the novel is not without its merits. I just want to point out the demerits with the merits.
It has its issues but the novel is well-rounded and resourceful. I loved that the love of Salar and Imama was beyond everything, growing stronger every minute, though I would have liked to watch them getting there, talking more about the old days, reminiscing the circumstances that lead them together. I wanted to hear the lovers talk, their whispers but, apparently that's not the Pakistani Urdu novelist's style. This is not Salar and Imama's story, this is the story of posterity.
The story of Saad's Salar's friend from Yale's days family was a cautionary tale for me. It presented a frightening side of our society, I was scared for myself. I loved how Umera was willing to talk about the horrors and the dark side of our society, it was a bold step using almost the exact harsh and curse words, to tell the truth.
It was very cool that Saad finally had his redemption after and through another generation. But what baffles me, is that, all these people knowing more about religion than apparently anyone else, as the author herself has said, could be so misguided. Seems a little judgemental and needs more thinking and exploration into the heart of the matter.
The answer cannot be that simple. And her disapproval of veiled women doesn't escape the notice either. She should've set her bias aside before sitting to write his book.
The redemption of characters was exemplary, the mention of old home, Alzheimer's and the family reunion was very apt, it really hit the mark. All the time I thought Salar was going to die but to my hidden relief he didn't. But, what I think would have been poetic justice and more realistic, even if I agree with Umera's vision for her character as well was for Salar to have succumbed to disease and for Imama specially and his children, the boys and the girls, to carry on his legacy.
The best part is Dr. I loved it so much just like I loved Imama's perpetual counsel to Salar on the topic. I asked myself, after going through all those hardships, how could she be so greedy, it was just so incomprehensible to me. But it was compensated very well by the end of the book.
Even if Umera is essentially portraying the characters as enjoying the fruits of their hard work but it is an undeniable fact that they are coming from privileged backgrounds.
I felt that the rich are entitled to even their IQ's. Maybe my looking lens is clouded with judgement but I just couldn't bring myself to reconcile with this image. It was refreshingly unconventional.
Raeesa going back to find her roots, clearing Salar's name was definitely a very bold and a good choice. Her social work was a nice touch, the icing on the cake. I really enjoyed her storyline. Umera portrayed the Western society quite accurately and I was really impressed with the CIA breaking the engaged couple apart, it really was amusing as much as it was clever and accurate. Umera's knowledge and research about secret agencies is impressive. Overall it was an absorbing, engaging and somewhat eye-opening read.
I am better for having read it. Maybe I am biased, maybe it's hard for me to be objective but these are the things I felt and I have to be true to myself. I am sorry if I inadvertently hurt someone by my opinions. I would love to know your opinions and please tell me if you find any loopholes in my review.
I tried my best to be sincere in my efforts. Allah knows best. View all 11 comments. Dec 01, Sidra Irfan Malik rated it liked it Shelves: Long review ahead. No spoilers. When I first heard of it's publication I was overcome by a sense of ambivalence; a part of me was excited to know what she had in store for the readers as a sequel Disclaimer: When I first heard of it's publication I was overcome by a sense of ambivalence; a part of me was excited to know what she had in store for the readers as a sequel for almost everyone's favourite novel but at the same time a part of me was scared that it might not live up to the standards set by its prequel.
Despite all this, I decided to give it a read and after twenty-five months of reading the sequel I'll say I'm still as ambivalent as I was before I started reading it. The first episode served more as a teaser and was very promising bythe look of it. The cards comprised as follows and the characters' lives were divided in the sequence followed by the cards Alif: Adam aur Havva Adam and Eve Bay: Bait-ul-Ankaboot House of spider Hay: Hasil-o-Mehsool The acquired and the toll Yay: Abdan abada The Eternal Tay: It gave an in-depth analysis in the life of Salar and Imama post marriage.
It showed how their family grew, how their kids' lives unwound and the turn their own lives took, it showed the sacrifices both Imama and Salar made, their struggles, the obstacles they overcame and most all how both of them together recognized the hazards of interest based economic system and their struggles to eradicate it from the society. The sequel also answered all unanswered questions from the prequel such as the fate of Hashim family, Ahsan Saad's life and the course it takes and so on.
I particularly fell in love with each and everyone of their kids and how each character complimented the other so well. Humain was my favourite character among all the characters introduced in the sequel. The reason why this book failed to live up to my expectations was primarily that after Peer-e-Kamil as a reader I had raised my bar of expectations too high. Apart from that, Umera Ahmed incorporated a bit too many supernatural details in the story which didn't seem very practical.
However, the most disappointing part of the story was the climax, 'Turp ka Patta' Life which is continued with new challenges. I'm still not sure about the end because it was very ambiguous and left a lot of questions unanswered.
All in all, even if Aab-e-Hayat wasn't the best book penned down by Umera Ahmed then it certainly wasn't the worst either. The characters in the story are just as much humans as we are and so is the author so a little margin should be given to everyone. Jun 05, Seher Alvi rated it did not like it.
Won't recommend this book to anyone as the story doesn't have any plot just a few characters of previous book around which a long book has been made still wonder what was the point in making a part 2, Well I hope there is no any part 3 coming up plz no or sequel of anyother Umera Ahmed's masterpieces in the pipeline. View 2 comments. Jan 12, Sheikh Madiha rated it it was ok. Unrealistic characters. Two extremes. Either too good or too bad. The entire novel revolves around "wo hil nahi saki thi" and crying episodes.
We didn't get some answers. They both appeared to know it but readers don't. I think it only created hype but couldn't unfold in that manner. I didn't really find any relevance in that. It was like digging a mountain to find a rat. She says "Raeesa" achi larki hai, Humain didn't apparently get it but the her intention was not addressed.
Overall, it was very typical stuff with Salar's brain tumor, Humain's narrow escape, Chunni's adoption and everything that could go right for one family! The only thing I liked about this story is that it highlighted the other side of "practicing" Muslims. Not every practicing Muslim is a good human being. We fall for the stereotypes and they exploit our respect for them.
People who try to judge who's going to hell and who's entitled to heaven, those who hurt others in the name of Islam and don't get the essence of Islam beyond the idea of being allowed to have 4 wives.
This needed to be highlighted. Dec 13, Inshal Abidi rated it really liked it. Probably the best sequel of the best book. However, the book is very different to Peere kamil. Its something unique. The idea , main theme of this book is about how a life can be laid down in view of Islam. Its a story about the man, who falls, but rise up again, encountering every hardship in his career and with family; but never give up. He is the one who has to go with everything, because he has become Kamil.
On the other hand, there is a woman with that man, torn and devastated for nine years Probably the best sequel of the best book. On the other hand, there is a woman with that man, torn and devastated for nine years, but eventually finds peace with him. How beautifully they are together. Salar and Imama. The best couple. And their children are also the best one. Both of them face challenges in their own way, but are always with eachother: Definite this story is about, Salar's family: The words stop here.
The best story finishes. But not life. One challenge finishes, the other starts.
Who are ready to fight the oppressive world and keen to establish a pure islamic society and financial system. The end. View all 7 comments. Jul 03, Daisy Dane rated it it was ok. I'm going to give my honest opinion here. I must admit that I had really high hopes for Aab e hayat. I thought it will be as good as peer e kamil but was very disappointed.
First of all two protagonists i,e Salaar and Umama were not as same as portrayed in peer e kamil. Umama was acting like a child and was being extra sensitive. At first author said that she spent her life in extreme conditions,but suddenly she demanded a mansion with a river and all facilities of the world.
And thier "zaheen tareen " children ugh So intelligent I mean who becomes THAT successful by reading just one book which was not even related to his profession. Q and they actually prepared for contest but for Humain they were no challenge at all It was shown as if he had some kind of super powers and unlike any human he predicted every situtaion very accurately as if he has already seen it It was very difficult to digest the story of these "zaheen tareen dimag".
To be honest i really started to hate them all. What does that meant? Though i didn't enjoyed it as much i thought i would Like In this novel It was clearly pointed out that why interest system is forbidden in islam and how much difficult it can be to get rid of it It also sheds light on a very important aspect, that was,non muslims ,specially westren people can never be sincere to us they will only use us and will help us untill we are of some use to them and they will never let our true religion spread or develope.
And what I really liked about Aab e hayat was how it portrayed ahsan said's family that althought they were leading a very pious life but there good deeds made them arrogant.
I think it is something which each one of us should apply in our life. Overall it was a good novel. But honestly I only liked the last 2 or 3 chapters of the novel in which there was something serious going on other than Umama and salaar's repeatative story.
I don't thing I'm going to read it again anytime soon Jun 04, Mi Mi rated it it was amazing Shelves: Peer-e-kamil is still my favorite. I read it during my exams I was that desperate lol. Did skip story of their adopted daughter a few pages Going to reread the book after Ramadan Happy Ramadan. Aug 14, Sana Munir rated it liked it. While reading Aab e hayat I was like that there is no need to write second part of peer e kamil.
Because peer e kamil has it's own charm and worth. Although she picked a very good point and by giving us mind blowing examples she explain why bank job is not allowed in our religion. Dec 01, Alina Naz rated it really liked it Shelves: For me Peer-e-Kamil ended with Salaar and Imama's reunion.
What I did expect was another heart-wrenching, eye-opening story with some other social evil being tackled with. Yes the main characters were Salaar and Imama, but painted on an entirely different canvas. Not only was Imama being a source of strength for many in Peer-e-kamil annoying but foolish in the first chapters.
The story began from the 7th chapter as far as I remember , when Salaar finally realises the vices of interest. His genious children Humain especially brought a lighter note to the story. Throughout the course of this novel, I was looking for more details regarding Salaar's new company SIF, but never found them and the story ended.
It would have been better with explanations included, regarding his work in SIF. Ayesha's depressing life story, Ahsan Saad's hypocrisy , Jibrails character, Eric's conversion to Abdullah.
It all revolved around the 2nd plot. I found this story complete and satisfactory by the end of the novel. Ayesha and Jibraeel had a perfect conversation in the end, Raeesa's story although not clear was satisfactory. I still have no idea what it was about I read the author's explanation but I am still unclear. Mar 19, Muhammad Abdullah rated it it was amazing. Insan ke nafs ko cheezein pasand hote hain woh pehle kar leta hai aur jo Allah ko pasand hota hai woh baad ke liye chor deta hai A fitting sequel but, obviously, not better than the first one.
Dec 30, Rameez Ahmad rated it it was ok. When we came to know it was an extension of "Peer e Kamil", the way writer carried the novel is questionable.
The novel is full of flaws, Inconsistent, Ir relative. In First quarter of Novel: In second quarter of Novel: Writer seem to be inspired from Hollywood Movie "Blood Diamond" those who have watched it can relate. In the next half of Novel there kids, you don't only envy to them but starting to hate them. In short the novel When we came to know it was an extension of "Peer e Kamil", the way writer carried the novel is questionable.
In short the novel is full waste of time unlike the other novels of Umera Ahmed. Dec 01, H. F Sheikh rated it it was amazing. The only plot up till now is how much Umama is insecure about her new life and how much Salar is in love with his wife and how perfect his is. Problem is I've read and liked such novel where only plot revolve around the love life of two main leads but what's really off putting in this love story is a its boring and b the character of Umama.
You know in the beginning of PK, Umama's friend asked 'What she wants most in life? And her friend said 'What would you do, if you don't become one? That's really what's happened in this novel, that Umama has died. Now in her place is a women who is weak, feels she is useless, is insecure and dependent, always in need of approval from Salar and cries A LOT. That strong, resourceful and independent girl is lost somewhere in between PK and AH. She sulk a lot and cry a lot and for most childish things ever!!
She sulk because Salar didn't say good morning, or had breakfast with her or say she looks pretty in blue while she was wearing purple etc etc She loves to read adult romance and has read up to to romance novels and as per Salar's monologue, 'not good ones but really cheap and dirty ones'.
Now I've read some books and romance is my favorite genre and I've my fair share of some cheap and dirty ones as well but after 'cheap' romance novel, you got to have to read some from E. James, Silvia day or Belle Aurora etc. She not only read these but cherish all of her books as well, and while reading places herself as female lead and Jalal as male lead, no wonder she is messed-up in the upper department.
For me this is all very unexpected from Umama who fell in love with Jalal after hearing his 'Naat'. After reading and re-reading these love stories for past nine year, she has very immature and unrealistic expectation from her marriage. She has a dream house, where all animals live together and gentle streams of water flow nearby her house.
After admitting this dream and asking Salar to make her a dream home, Salar gives her are-you-crazy look and says her demands are impossible to meet, she immediately shuts off and thinks he is making fun of her dreams. But everything aside, this novel lost its magic because it looses the the ishq e Haqiqi aspect. Story and Characters lost their connection with Allah, Umama more so that other.
This made characters very bland with burst of awesomeness here and there. I might pickup this novel some other time.
