Mabrook! A World of Muslim Weddings This joyful celebration of Muslim weddings compares customs in different parts of the world. Whilst the sacred religious rites are the same, it describes how the parties, presents, and type of celebration can differ widely from country to country. In Pakistan, the women hold henna parties dress the bride in silks and as much gold as possible; in Morocco, all the neighbours come together to prepare a magnificent communal wedding feast; Somali women sing and perform a special dance to honour the mother of the bride. Celebrations in modern Britain might reflect more of an eclectic mixture and meeting of traditions: wedding cake and biryani, hijabs and kilts, both an iman and a best man's speech. The colourful, collage-style illustrations by Shirin Adl are a perfect match to the light-hearted text. A glossary, and author's note on Muslim weddings are included.
