    10 stars!!! I love love love this novel so much!Interesting and captivating story...Starting from "Hamara Saadi" with somewhere between " Mai Haneen hun", this novel made me fall in love with it.Be it Faras Ghazi's strategies and cold humor; (churail) Zumar's attitude and intelligence; Haneen's nerdiness and oh yes my favourite Saadi's righteousness and his stern belief in justice and equality, I love everything about this novel.The Kardars are equally good. I must say they are the best villains in urdu novel history.Adorned with chunks of urdu duplets and translations of english poems, this novel is amazing and worth reading.

    The plot of Nimra Ahmed’s novel Namal (From Surah Namal meaning Ants) revolves around a murder! No wait, it revolves around the relationship between a boy and his family! Umm…wait, it revolves around money and its evil. Ok I give up, Namal’s plot has all this and much more substance beautifully weaved and exceptionally narrated into a single story.Umera Ahmed set the trend of integrating religion into stories in the modern history of Urdu popular fiction. I don’t know anything about Nimra Ahmed, but if she is inspired by Umera, she is definitely going to surpass her mentor in near future. The way she seamlessly puts Islamic teachings in her stories makes me fall in love with her writing every time. Umera Ahmed’s stories are more on a spiritual side, divine love and most of all how people repent for their sins. Nimra brings this all to everyday life and common settings.

    We need more books like these. We need change. Not the usual digest crap.

    So we have got something much more than happily ever after and tragically ever after ^_^ I am glad that we didn't have to see Yousufs winning or the Kardars losing in the typical way.NAMAL DESERVES 7 OUTTA 5 STARS

    Nimra Ahmed's new novel Namal is an intricate tale of murder and revenge revolving around Surah Namal of the Holy Quran. Namal is a novel full of suspense and surprises. Namal is a carefully spun mesh work of interwoven threads that are unraveled to the reader slowly and gradually. With the right amount of humor, suspense that keeps you glued and a story that you'll remember for a long long time, Namal really touched my heart. The lessons, the quotes and most importantly the elaboration of Quranic verses won me over. From Saadi's intellect to Haneen's evil genius. From Faris' subtle humor to Zumar's stubborn attitude. From Baray Aba's subtle taunts to Nudrat Behan's never-ending complains. From Hashim's I'll-handle-it-all attitude to Jawaharat's cunning nature. From Abdar's precise scheming to Nosherwan's wounded little ego. Somewhere along these lines I fell in love with the characters. However, Saadi and Fairs Taheer Ghazi stood out as my favourite characters. I highly highly recommend this to each and everyone. Such great pieces are rarely penned down. The book comprises of somewhere around 1600 pages and comes as a hardback. This makes it really hard to handle. It gave me a sprained wrist but needless to say in the end it was all worth it. Concluding it with one of my favourite lines (among many others) from the book. یہ آیاتِ نحل ہمیں سکھاتی ہیں کہ جیسے گوبر اور خون کے درمیان سے پاکیزہ چیز نکل سکتی ہے ‘ اور جیسے انگور اور کھجور سے ناپاک شے بن سکتی ہے ‘ ویسے ہی شہد کی مکھی کے راستوں کو مشکل بنانے والی چیزوں کا صحیح یا غلط استعمال آپ کے ہاتھ میں ہے. مگر اتنا یاد رکھئے گا ‘ کہ جو آپ کے نصیب میں ہے ‘وہ آپ کو ضرور ملے گا۔ چاہے حرام سے ‘ چاہے حلال سے۔ لیکن اگر آپ اس کو حرام سے لینے کی کوشش کریں گے ‘ تو الله آپ کے حلال کی لذت لے لے گا.کچھ میاں بیوی پسند کی شادی کے باوجود بڑی ناخوش زندگی گزار رہے ہوتے ہیں‘ کبھی سوچا ہے کیوں؟ کیونکہ وہ شادی سے پہلے سب حرام سے لے چکے ہوتے ہیں‘ جو بعد میں ان کو مل ہی جانا تھا‘ اس لئے ان کے حلال کی مٹھاس ختم ہو جاتی ہے۔ آپ کسی کے ساتھ ‘ بھلے اپنے منگیتر کے ساتھ ہی سیل فون پہ انوالوڈ ہیں‘ تو اتنا یاد رکھیں کہ محرم اور نا محرم کے قوانین آپ کی دلیلوں اور حیلوں بہانوں سے بدل نہیں جائیں گے۔ جو غلط ہے ‘ وہ غلط ہے۔ آپ جتنا حرام لیں گے ‘ اتنا اپنے حلال کو کھوتے جائیں گے۔‘‘

    After finishing the 20th part, I feel like it is starting to drag. The writer is trying to expand the plot with new twists and turns, but it seems to be slipping out of her hands. And the apparently complex and multidimensional relationships between the characters seem rather forced and give a claustrophobic impression.Like, are there no other people out there in the world?The characters just seem to bump in to each other, all the time.Saadi's Quran commentary and introspection fails to impress. It is quite forced and philosophical at best. A person with a true understanding of the book, would not lie, cheat, extort in this manner.Zumar albeit strong, comes across as a cold, self-centered narcissist, her main concern being for herself or her golden child, Saadi. Faris, on the other hand, seems human enough with his bravado and controlled anger.The one redeeming quality of the novel just might be the villain, Hashim. Cunning and charming in the same breath, wreaking havoc in the lives of others, only to be manipulated and used by his mother in the end.

    One word for all the main characters (except Saadi Yousuf) in this book... "Badass".

    The first book ever that made me question Goodreads' five star policy. I need ten stars for this. Maybe endless.

    I seriously had no idea it would be such a long novel, I finished reading this online but bought it though bcz I want to read it again and again and again!!!!So here it starts when I heard someone calling Faris and Zumar the best couple ever and I thought what fictional characters are they? By searching it I found out what it is and reading the first Chapter made me cry when I saw what Zumar was suffering from and after a while who the actual villain is and that's our very own "Hasim Kardaar" and what he did with other main characters. I am so mad at him even when it's been months ago since I read the novel_ however Hashim's fate at the end was WELL DESERVING but it was a kind of book where villains were HEROES and heroes were basically VILLAINS! I also wanted to know more if Hanain and Saadi got married and also who they married and if Zumar ever had kids or may be she adopted some, so the end had very much irritated me_ it's like she had sort of left the book incomplete or may be she should also not add the few lines about Sonia taking revenge of her father Hashim?! But out of that it is a masterpiece to the Urdu literature. The characters are so powerful and Hanain is so great and when she gets to the court and deals with Hashim and made him ashamed instead of being the one was obsessive. In love with one of the most healthiest books of the world ;-)

    Beautiful read. I loved the characters i.e. Haneen & the way writer has explained the issues faced by a girl with solutions :)Although, i didn't like the end that much & there were some loop holes in story. But overall, it's a good read.

    One of the BEST books of urdu fiction. Naml is just a masterpiece, the whole plot was just AMAZING!I liked the "Shehad ki makhi wala part"most of all. The whole novel is very informative especially Saadi's interest in Quran. Naml really deserves 10 out of 5 stars!

    Another great and epic novel of the same writer. She has set a trend of these type of novels. Its about everything a person needs to read. Its about love,hate,family ties,murder,revenge, friendship, loyalty,power hunger and etc. May it be Haneen's hacking ability or Hamara Saadi's heroism, this novel will make you fall in love with it. I guess Haneen and Faris were more close to each other and the phuppo, Zumar and Saadi were more closer. Each of them had important part and without them, the story wouldn't succeed. And yes, who can forget the Great Hashim Kardar, the ultimate crush of everyone despite of his evils!Poor Nowsherwan. It was obvious that the Yousufs couldnot defeat Hashim in the court.This story had pain and sorrow, love and hate and such a decent humour along with few lovely scenes of the abnormal couple, 'Churail'. This name really suits Zumar because no doubt she was a churail. And the siblings provoking there mother, Nudrat Behn! Poor Aabdar, but she deserved it. Everything was so wonerfully written. The tafseer of Surah Namal, along with the relation of honeybees with young girls was really a truth. There was a great deal to learn from Haneen's life; how she cured her 'Marz e mustamir' and how she managed to reacall her Quran again. I wish I could read more of it but the story ends, but not the life nor the cycle of revenge! Sonya grew up and so plegded to take a revenge from Faris. And so thats it.

    Its the only book I liked from this writer. Due to the originality of its plot, real-life relatable characters & their circumstances. And the writer served justice to each & every aspect of fiction in it. No drama, no cheesiness, no predictability, no English novel plot influences; nothing of the regular current Urdu fiction sorts. Its a must-have, gift-worthy & a must read!
