    1. "Allah Ki Mohabbat Ke Siwa, Har Mohabbat Ko Zawal Hai.Rab Ki Mohabbat Ke Illawa Duniya Ki Koi Mohabbat Sachi Nahi,Aur Rab Asliyat Dekha Deta Hai. Har Rishte, Har Mohabbat Ki.Phir Wo Sab Kuch Dekha Ker Adami Se Kehta Hai,"Ab Bata Tera Mere Siwa Kon Hai?"— Umera Ahmed (Shehr E Zaat)

    2. This is the second time that Umera Ahmed's story made me cry. Her style is simple yet beautiful, her stories ordinary yet with a message so powerful that a Muslim cannot help but evaluate himself. Kudos to her for making us understand زات کی چاہ!

    3. This novel is about the pure love of Allah. How any worldly matter is irrelevant when one has full awareness & love of Allah in his heart. It is full of quotes & conversations that are brilliant & inspiringi would've put 5 stars for this, yet i believe it could have been written better than thisif only Umera gave more in depth details on the characters & their emotional journeys. The sudden shift in Falak's behavior didn't satisfy me & left me with the belief that it could ha [...]

    4. One novel which is bound to make you weep simply because of the rush of emotions that you would feel once you realize the meaning of your relation with Allah. This is a POWERFUL, deeply saddening and heart wrenching novel. I pay 100% credit to it for making me realize the religious and spiritual values of life. There is no contentment greater than that of being in love with the ALL MIGHTY & GREAT ALLAH.

    5. Allah Ki Mohabbat Ke Siwa, Har Mohabbat Ko Zawal Hai.Rab Ki Mohabbat Ke Illawa Duniya Ki Koi Mohabbat Sachi Nahi,Aur Rab Asliyat Dekha Deta Hai. Har Rishte, Har Mohabbat Ki.Phir Wo Sab Kuch Dekha Ker Adami Se Kehta Hai,"Ab Bata Tera Mere Siwa Kon Hai

    6. .ایمان سب کچھ ہے. کوئی ایک اللہ کے مقابلے میں تم سے زیادہ محبت کرے گا! بہت اچھا کہانی

    7. With a new-found fondness for Pakistani television shows, which tend to come without the unaesthetic simplification and over-dramatization of all experiences human that's the trademark baggage of everything currently produced this side of the border - I decided to finally commit myself to a full-length novel by the author who seems to have supplied the inspiration for half of all series produced in that country.This was my first novel in Urdu, having confined myself to short story collections an [...]

    8. I read this book after watching the drama which was aired on Hum TV, and the drama is surprisingly better than the book because of her grandmother's (Nani) character, valuable insights and wisdom.

    9. This novel is wowI remember i read it when i was 12 years old. :P As always Umera described the good and bad, right and wrong, in the most beautiful way, I remember that 'faqeer' (فقیر) who was sitting near the 'Johar' (جوہڑ) and was throwing little stones in it. That part is my favorite. and the part where Falak was sitting on the stairs of Mosque and a woman talked to her and told her abut Allah. And after Falak go out of the mosque and return back again and found that woman nowhere. T [...]

    10. I watched the drama first n then get curios to know the end so i read the novel I love the script of the story n specially the conversation between Falak n her grandma Its very deep n philosophical Its a reality story of pakistan n most of muslim societies nowadays which r totally involved in their lives n forgot the most important thing of our being which is " Allah " n his Worship

    11. the story aptly shared the message it wanted to within a short span of around 100 pagesever since have already watched the tv series, really missed inclusion of some of the characters present out there.overall, a different outlook to our daily lives and occasions in it when we are not as thankful as we should be for each blessing and favor bestowed on us.

    12. The finest piece by Umera Ahmed. Indeed, Allah's love isnt in the fate of everyone :) It made me cry and the credit goes to Umera Ahmed who always try to shorten the distance between man and Allah. It could be extreme for many liberals but I always find myself more religious after every piece of Umera Ahmed.

    13. Beautifully written by Umaira Ahmed !She is phenomenal at writing spiritual themed novels.A girl fell for a narcissist guy and would do anything to be with him. Never realising her love for him, he kept hurting her feelings.The main theme is her journey from "wordly love" to "divine love".A must-read for those who are compassionate and love emotional yet moral stories.

    14. Though regarded as a great novel by many but I don't admire it much. Protagonists were not influential. But the plot was touching the bitter realities of life. Comparing to other masterpieces of Umera Ahmed, it was not as great as others.

    15. Amazing book about spirtual awakening. Main character's transition from haughty n self obsessed woman to a God seeking one is hauntingly beautiful. I didnt like the ending though -she should have continued with her life happily rather than accepting her husband back.

    16. Har cheez ko zawaal hai, siwaye Khuda ki muhabbat kay.This book makes you think, and if it hits you hard enough, it might just change your life. Umera Ahmed never disappoints, truly another masterpiece by her!

    17. Shehr E Zaat is the most social Urdu novel by most popular Urdu novelist Umera Ahmed. You can free download and read online this Urdu novel from kutubistan/2013/0

    18. A very good read about spirtual awareness , It looks like a typical romantic novel at start but it is not and has many eye opening soul awakening statements. Must read.

    19. i.e. if I had to give a star each to the stories that I liked. (the first & the last one, the rest not so much)

    20. عمیرہ احمد کی خوبصورت ناولز میں سے ایک شہرِ ذات ہے۔ کہانی کی بنت خوب ہے اورعمیرہ نے موضوع سے بھی انصاف کیا ہے۔

    21. Main sirf itna kahana hai ki is pustak ki begham bahut accha hai. Sach hai ki Allah ki mohabbat ke siwa, har mohabbat ko zawal hai. Rab ki mohabbat ke illawa duniya ki koi mohabbat sachi nahi.
