Description


Our laws, our society, our emotions, our hearts, our expressions – these are all governed by our almighty God. Muslims put their faiths in the Quran, whereas Christians preach the beatitudes as well as the New Testament. Both claim to praise God, except through vastly different teachings and ways. God is universally acknowledged as the greatest legislator of all time. However, the question to ask here is, have His laws caused oppression rather than salvation? Intuition tells one that the sorrow and suffering in our mortal life will be rewarded with eternal pleasure in the afterlife. But what about this life in the present? The question remains unanswered; does God indeed forbid forbidden love? This work of fiction presents the story of Natalia, a young Muslim girl pressured by the strict laws of Islam. Her search for salvation finds consummation in Raphael, her childhood love. Raphael, a young Christian boy, fights the struggles put forth by religion, culture, and history. His theology is simple – love must prevail. Natalia and Raphael’s friendship, passion, and love is forbidden by the laws of God. The duo fight for a change in the way the world works and their rights to forbidden love. Little does Natalia know that Raphael, with strikingly similar features to that of Jesus Christ’s, the saviour, will eventually, through ways out of the ordinary, assist Natalia in her quest for salvation as well, in the process attaining his own salvation. So in the end, does love really prevail? Read on to find out…

About the author


The alpha author was born into a community filled with oppression, a poor suburb with even poorer conditions. He resides in what is known as the heart of the western suburbs. John Jacob is a man less than average with financial stability far from him. This outlier uses his knowledge of the law to progress himself in the direction which most fail to take. When he is not studying, nor working he tries to use his mind to create ideas that will revolutionise his community, his latest project will follow this story in a second novel.

The beta, known as Jessica is nothing short of a tactician, her life is simple but without her our community shatters to nothingness. Born into the same favela, her struggles are combated with affection and love. Her pains are paint brushed with her love for makeup, each stroke of mascara hides an entailing story. I say again, our community is nothing without her. She teaches the young minds in our community. Educating them to correct the mistakes that our parents’ parents failed to fix.
