Pilgrim’s Verses, by S. A. Fortes and C. A. Téllez

Pilgrim’s Verses by Sabrina A. Fortes and Caio Álvar Fañez presents a unique narrative in poetic prose that unfolds through multiple characters and timelines. This captivating work reveres significant episodes in the life of the prophet Muhammad, from the revelation of the Holy Word of Allah by the angel Gabriel to the triumphant recapture of Mecca.

The journey introduces Haidar, a devout individual in the era of Saladin. Embarking on a pilgrimage to Mecca, Haidar reflects on pivotal moments of his youth, offering readers profound insight into his spiritual evolution.

Nabrisa adds another layer to the narrative tapestry; a spirited Englishwoman defying societal norms by enlisting as a combatant during the Third Crusade, she leaves home to embark on a quest to reunite with her father, who serves under the banner of King Richard the Lionheart.

A malevolent djinn named Salman, cursed and driven by diabolical motives, seeks to eradicate the foundations of the Islamic religion, starting from its inception with the prophet Muhammad up to the present day.

The Pilgrim’s Verses stands as a compelling antithesis to Salman Rushdie’s Satanic Verses. Through its pages, the work elevates the Islamic faith by highlighting its core values of love, humanism, and brotherhood. In contrast to the discord sown by its antagonist, this narrative strives to amplify the essence of the Islamic religion, fostering a deeper understanding of its teachings and principles.
