I shall take you back to pre-war Germany, to prison camps in England; recall my migration to Australia and later as an Australian Accountant to South Africa, with a final return to Germany.

Under Siege: Black Muslim Down Under By Sulaiman Abdur-Rahman
eBook (ePub): $0.99
Under Siege: Black Muslim Down Under is a memoir that chronicles the life of professional journalist Sulaiman Abdur-Rahman as it gives the gripping account on why he walked away from his high-profile... More > journalism career in the United States to migrate to Sydney, Australia. Wrapped in a riveting love story, Abdur-Rahman's memoir also serves as a must-read social commentary about race and religion. Drawing upon his life experience and writing from his perspective as an African-American Muslim, Abdur-Rahman uses his bulldog journalism style, backed with compelling evidence, to explain why the Commonwealth of Australia is a culturally challenged nation that offers a lower quality of life and lesser opportunities for advancement than the United States of America. The narrative inevitably touches upon the religion of Islam and the global fight against the Islamic State international terrorist group. In the end, this memoir conveys an unprecedented story about faith, love, adversity, and romance.< Less

It’s November 1985 in Sydney, Australia. Two parents were at Doctor Orange’s chamber with their child. Doctor Orange recommended liver test to the child next morning. The child was... More > diagnosed to have stage IV liver cancer, a rare type of childhood disease. Doctor Orange informed the parent, “Your baby’s liver is severely damaged and there is only 4% chance that he would live!” The parents bursted into tears. Doctor Orange patted the parents in back and said, “I would try my best to cure your son”. The American doctor could indeed cure the child. That child was me and it was my parents.
