Ayyam Min Hayati: The Prison Memoirs of a Muslim Sister (1995)

Zaynab al-Ghazali was arrested in the 1960’s on charges that she was allegedly plotting to overthrow the president. In 1977, al-Ghazali published her autobiography of those years of incarceration, feeling that she owed it to the Islam and the Islamic world. The memoir, Days from My Life, is a model for pious Muslim women seeking independence and fullfilment of jihad.
