Dear Prophet - A Woman's Story is larina's story and her reflections on
imponderable existential questions, "the meaning of a woman's life and the
meaning of meaning". Through the letters she writes to the founder of her
religion, the Prophet Mohammed, the panorama of this Muslim woman's life
and that of her young son, Hamid, is revealed. While she searches for her
missing son, larina's letters and narration describe a convoluted chain of
events that move from India to Germany, Lebanon and the United States,
ending up in Colorado, where Hamid undergoes the transformation, which
changes everything in their lives. The intrigue and terror that grip larina's
and Hamid's comfortable lives intensify with each turn of a screw wielded by
an invisible hand, ending in a remarkable set of events.

Ali's narration of the story touches on his own attempt to make sense of human relationships, love attachment and detachment and the human mind a need for ultimate release in a final silence.
