Just reading about the way that women were treated under Islamic rule makes me very grateful to have what I do. And sadly this is not exclusive to Afghan society only it is happening in many other countries The unhappy, abusive marriages, oppressive governments and repressive Cultural mores. It is exceptionally well plotted and opens the window on a part of the world that very few of us are familiar with. This is not an easy book to read. فمن خلال حكايتها وحكاية ليلى التي تقاطعت معها فيما بعد ألقى الكاتب الضوء على العديد من الأحداث التي مرت بأفغانستان وشكلت التاريخ الأفغاني بدءا بانتهاء الحكم الملكي وبالاحتلال الروسي ومن ثم بحكم طالبان والحرب الأمريكية على أفغانستان. Racial prejudice, subhanallah, just from the different ways a person looks, can really be fodder for Shaytaan.
It is the story of poor, uneducated women who have to endure the hardships of life. Read this book to find out what it's all about; maybe it will inspire you, too. And if khaled hosseini is a farsiwan Shia the everything is self explanatory. The parliamentarian Malalai Joya, who has spoken out against Mujahideen and warlord influence, has faced death threats, and the journalist Zakia Zaki was shot dead. When Rasheed returns home from work, Zalmai tells him about the visitor. Lastly this may sound like I am trying to write an anti hosseini thing really I am not.
Upon discovering that she is pregnant with Tariq's child, Laila agrees to marry Rasheed to protect herself and the baby, giving birth to a daughter, Aziza, whom Rasheed rejects and neglects for being a girl. It was good and I enjoyed reading it. It also makes the reader consider their own privilege compared to the stories of both Laila and Mariam. She becomes pregnant with her third child, and if it is a girl, vows to name her Mariam. And that's just the beginning. Even when Hosseini is depicting a child who has every right to behave badly given his circumstances Zalmai , he can't help but depict the child as almost evil.
Hosseini returned to Afghanistan for the first time in almost thirty years just before writing this novel and was moved by the stories of the women he met there. Okay, okay—so our copy might be so waterlogged that we can't read it anymore, but what are you gonna do? ورغم رأيي بأن الكاتب كان متحاملا. First, when Mariam moves in with Jalil, he blames her for combating her marriage arrangement, acting as if Mariam was a burden to him. The elder, Mariam, was born to a servant woman out of wedlock and is raised in banishment, ignorance and eventual rejection during the years the Afghani government was controlled by the communists. While the real issue was about one of the three Cobalt mines on Earth, the one which is in Yugoslavia by chance. The story begins in 1974, as Mariam, an illegitimate child of a wealthy businessman from Herat, is growing up.
He becomes unusually kind and gentle, and he is seen to be courting Laila. I think the reason this book had such a profound effect on me was due to living in Saudi Arabia for sixteen years and I could relate to a certain extent to what the women had to endure. I'm certain that this is to be the last book I'd read this year. As you might expect, the 3 wives were less than enthused and Nana and Mariam were forced to live on the outskirts of town, making Nana a bitter often cruel person to Mariam. He depicted female emotion in a way that is so clear and touching. Mariam is a harami, born on the other side of the blanket to the wealthy Jalil Khan and his housekeeper Nana. وإن كانت الشخصيات ضرب من خيال فهم بالنهاية جزء من واقع فرض نفسه.
Rasheed searches for work elsewhere but has trouble. In reality Tariq, the childhood friend of Laila, is the catalyst in the book. A Thousand Splendid Suns is an incredible chronicle of thirty years of Afghan history an Beutifully Written, Poignant and moving. He sneers at her for her apparent ignorance, and then makes a confused attempt to explain. That guy is a bag of potato! And yet she was leaving the world as a woman who had loved and been loved back. Women like Nana, Mariam, Laila are forced into things they never wanted Mariam is forced into marriage, nana is thrown away by his boss because of being pregnant which led to her being disowned by her own father, the women decision is not considered.
Laila's troubled past revolves around her loss of Tariq, which influences her hope in Aziza and her negativity towards Rasheed even before she really gets to know him. Many women were just cast out from the family home and led a miserable existence begging on the streets. He has quotes from Sufi poems all throughout the book, from Rumi and his likes.

The novel spans over three decades and is set against the backdrop of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, the ensuing internal conflict for control, and the eventual rule of the Taliban.
Regardless of whether it was necessary or not, it was seen as right in her eyes. لأنها مثلت المرأة التي تعيش تحت ظلم لا تملك تغييره بداية.

We are all human, and everyone deserves to be treated as such - no matter which cultural background you belong to. As a woman, I feel blessed to have been given confidence and opportunities. Marginalised, a vagina in her youth, a womb in her womanhood, and a pair of hands for sweeping and cleaning in her old age. When the taliban came to power people were very happy because they gave us the security we really wanted.
So the bias was to be expected. Laila's family eventually also decides to leave the city, but a rocket destroys their house as they are preparing to leave, killing her parents and severely injuring Laila. Muslims have their faults and we must be honest and admit our sins and shortcomings. But above all, it lays bare the truly horrendous existence of women and girls. هذا الرد البسيط أثر في نفسي كثيرًا وأصابني برجفة قوية، لا أعرف لماذا، لكني أحسست بصدقه، فعندما وصلت لهذا الحد من الرواية وقرأت هذه الجملة شعرت بصدق هذه الياااااااه وأنها تعبر عني عندما استعدت أحداث الرواية الأولى.

She, who didn't have an easy day in her life, allows herself to be touched by the love of Laila and her children. But this personality of hers fits right in with the usual representation of elderly women in literature.
