Robin is Ana

Robin is Ana As some of you may know by now, Robin is Ana of Polygamy 411. Robin is her real name. When envious, hateful people first put her real name out there in cyberspace, it disturbed her. Little did she know that it would benefit her in a huge way. We never know what Allah has decreed for us. Sometimes we think something is bad when it is actually good.

When others revealed her name, she removed from the blog the story of a few characters whom she had depicted. Furthermore, she closed the blog for renovations. When she reopened it, she did so  as an all new Polygamy 411 blog and support group, She said that she would probably write a novel about the characters that she had portrayed on the older version of the blog. Well, she has done it. All praise is due to Allah.

Yes, Robin is Ana of Polygamy 411, and she has written a contemporary fiction novel about the same characters

The title of her novel is, “The Silent Tears of Polygamy” Based on a True Story of an American Female Living in the US. She had said that she had a surprise for the visitors of the blog. The book is the surprise. Insha Allah, “Kindle” will release “The Silent Tears of Polygamy” on or about June 27, 2016, as an e-book. The paperback will be ready at Amazon around that time, as well. You could buy it many places on the internet soon. Robin still has her work cut out for her in promoting the novel.

To show appreciation for all the wonderful people who have contributed by commenting on this blog and have supported and helped her make this blog the success that it is, she will give the book to them as a gift. It will be an e-book. She knows some of you have already read the story when it was on the blog. She needs you to make sure that you are using a valid email address when you write here, if you would like to receive a free copy of the book.

So, there you have it. Robin is Ana of polygamy 411

She thanks her husband; her Islamic family; and her biological family for their tremendous support during the last six months that she tirelessly slaved away most days and nights, writing and rewriting, “The Silent Tears of Polygamy.” Writing a book is no joke. It was hard work for someone like her who had never written a book before. Now, she is an author.

She thanks her loved ones for hanging in there with her. She thanks them for listening to her talk about the novel endlessly. If she was driving herself crazy with writing it, she is sure it was a test of her loved ones’ patience and tolerance, as well. Once more, she thanks all the writers here, and she thanks the silent readers as well for all their support.

More than anything, she is grateful to Allah for bringing us all together and for bringing it all to fruition.

God Bless!

    Cindy, hey you!

    Of course I remember you. It’s soooo good to hear from you again https://www.polygamy411.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gif  It’s so weird; I was just thinking about you recently. I’m so happy you stopped in and gave a shout out. Wow, you bring back memories of the old days with some of the commentators such as: Judith; Donald; CM; Del Mrs.2, KhadijahZ and a bunch more.

    Thanks for the congrats. Alhumdulliah.  I’m still trying to tighten things up with the book and getting ready to work on the Marketing. So, it’s all coming along. It’s a lot of work, but it rewarding.  I hope you’re well and all is good with you. I get a good sense that it is and I’m happy for you https://www.polygamy411.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_heart.gif

    Dear Zarifa,

    Of course, I can send you the book. I set the number at 20, which I sent out emails to. Two were returned as undeliverable that I mentioned earlier and Amazon gave me gift certificates for. So, yes. Insha Allah, check your email in about 10 minutes. I’ll send the gift to you.

    Thank you much for being an avid reader. You sound like an adorable person. Try to hold onto the enthusiasm. {{{hugs}}}

    Dear Ana,

    Can I have the book too? I’ve commented thrice, if I am not mistaken.

    I’ve read your blog since 2012 (since the old version). However, since I am not in a polygamous marriage, I think I am not in a position to comment as others, because I would never can imagine the pain or struggles that the ladies here endured. 

    I am a Muslim. And monogamy and polygamy is a part of Islam.

    Thank you.

    As Salaamu Alaikum & Hello Everyone,

    I’m glad many of you have acknowledge receipt of your gift by claiming it. I know many of you are very busy and will need to find time to read the book. It’s all good whether now, later or never LOL

    Nonetheless, I kindly ask that you all claim the gift immediately whether you’re going to read it now or later, so I could deal with the accounting. It’s sort of like when you receive a check and the company gives you a certain amount of time to cash it.

    Thank you very much for your anticipated cooperation. I appreciate it much! https://www.polygamy411.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_rose.gif

    As Salaamu Alaikum & Hello to All 🙂

    Good news. The ebook is live now on Amazon. I’ve sent the book as a gift to a number of you, as I had said I would. Please check your email. I would love to have sent it to everyone who commented here. Please know that I do appreciate everyone.

    There is no need for anyone to say thank you. Please know that you all are very welcome. I thank you all again for your continued support. I love you all. You are the best! {{{hugs}}}

    I’ll copy this post to a couple of the other themes to make sure the commentators know to check their email. I don’t have a Kindle, so don’t ask me how it works to get it from the email to the device LOL I know you don’t need a Kindle. You can download a Kindle app.

    As-salaamu Alaikum and hello to all,

    baseema,

    Talking about “staying power” LOL I can say I think I’ve got that. I’ve been through the ringer and back. I’ve said it many time that my favorite motto is: “Whatever doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger.” I’m a living example of that. But, not so when I see the suffering of all the Muslims who are migrating and what’s happening in Iraq in Falluja with the Muslims being used as human shield by ISL. Now there’s allegations that the shia militia are torturing the Sunni civillian who were trapped in Falluja SMH and people can’t understand why Allah says don’t divide yourself into Sects. Anyhow, enough said by me about that.

    baseema, I don’t know how well the book will do. Even if it flopped, I’ll be happy. It was just another thing I set out to do and have done. I thank Allah much for allowing me to do it. Thank you for your kind words, sister. https://www.polygamy411.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_rose.gif

    Totally understandable Ana! I’m sure your book will be a great success. Who knows, they might start running to you! lol You sure have staying power and I’m sure there are a lot more readers here who never  talk. https://www.polygamy411.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_rose.gif

    “Wiccan Woman” was another regular writer here. She linked up by writing and putting her website in the comment box when she posted. By writing here, she gained exposure for her blog.

    I believe in teamwork, not things being one sided, nor others marketing for someone else here.  Blogs linking up with one another is team work.

    I’m hesitant to go to some blogs because they have a feature that lets one know where someone is writing from. It give almost the exact location. I can’t for the life of me figure out why someone with many anonymous writers would have that feature on their blog https://www.polygamy411.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_scratch.gif. If it deter me from going there, I’m sure it does the same for others.

    baseema,

    Thank you for your support. I appreciate it much.

    I think what ummof4 suggested about talk radio is good. She gave me food for thought about doing interviews for news channels. The last thing I’d want to do is put myself out there and be taken out of context.

    I think when she said she’d like to read the novel first, she meant she wants to have read the book before she hears dialogue about it in the media. I don’t think she meant she wants to read it to make sure it’s written properly so I don’t humiliate myself. At least I hope it’s what she meant LOL

    baseema, I get what you’re saying about the other author and her books. I’m just not ready to go that route yet. I’m just barely out the gate. I need time to get my own book out there and off the ground before I can think about hooking up with other authors to advance them and me.  That other author that ummof4 referred to has never written on this blog and has never, herself reached out to me.

    Besides, people come here to this blog trying to advertise for other blogs, yet no blog owner has come here trying to connect with me DIRECTLY.

    Years ago polygamy blog owners and I used to hook up. We’d link up with each other. There was “3rd”,  Journey in plural marriage”, “CM” and many others that I can’t remember now. It was so long ago.

    “CoWives Club is a legitimate blog and person who has been here and has been supportive. If she leaves a comment and places her blog info in the comment box, she and I would link up.

    I’m just saying, it can’t be a one way street.  I can’t have people just piggy backing off of me when it took several years for me to establish this blog. Some people simply want to take a free ride without connecting here.

    I already lost ground in having to start the blog fresh all over again from square one in 2014 when it actually launched in 2009. Five years of connections and data was lost.

    I believe in team effort, but I have not come across anyone other than “CoWives Club” and the old timers who wanted to team up  and make a go of it.  Those are just my thoughts about it. Blogging isn’t as it used to be. It was once a friendly platform out there and there was team work.

    Thank you again https://www.polygamy411.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_rose.gif

    Ana, you will do fine, I am sure! Radio sounds good too! I listen to a lot of talk radio on Sirius. I’m kind of confused why ummof4 has to read it first though! I’m sure you have had people read it and check it for you. But you might want to rethink the suggestion about another book/movie from someone else. You can each share and that will benefit you both. You would stand to gain a lot more than the other person because if they already have a big following that is going to be made into a movie, anyone interested in that would be interested in yours! If their book is already out and everything, that is a big audience just waiting for you. And it would draw more people to your blog too. Just something to think about. https://www.polygamy411.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_rose.gif

    ummof4, Wa Alaikum As Salaam, 🙂

    Ummo, it’s so good to hear from you. I was beginning to worry about you. My intention was to email you today to check on you. I’m glad you’re well and it was only being busy that kept you away. I know how it is when one is overwhelmed with so much to do. I’m glad to hear you don’t get into your “funk moods” often. Mine are far and few in between, too, which is way good.

    Thank you for the tips on promoting the book. I appreciate it. I look forward to reading yours when you’re finish. A self-help book is definitely needed.

    I’m happy to hear about the other Muslim sister who has written a couple of novel, and to hear about the movie. It’s best we don’t mention her name or books here, as it would amount to me promoting her book. The way I see it, I have my own work cut out for me in promoting my own book let alone helping a competitor and advertising for someone else. I like being helpful, but I’m trying to be business savvy and publishing is a business. No offense. Anyhow, there is no harm in asking.

    Jummah Mubarak to you too, my dear sister. Love to you!

    As-salaamu Alaikum and hello to all,

    Ana, Shukran for thinking of me.  May was an extremely busy month for me.  I even had one of my “funk moods” last week.  They only come on when I’m overwhelmed with work.  Anyhow, I’m a little more freed up now.

    So I see you beat me to the punch with writing a book, Alhamdulillah!  My book is completely different than yours anyway; it’s a self-help book.  Another Muslim sister writer has written 2 novels about polygyny that’s a novel.  Let me know if I can write the name and author, Ana.  One of the  books is also being made into a movie.

    Interviews and book signings sound fine, but don’t do any until I have read your book, https://www.polygamy411.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_smile.gifAs far as going on talk shows, I would try radio first.  The problem with TV is they often edit to their advantage.  Statements are often taken out of context.

    Shukran for the pleasant surprise, my dear sister.  May Allah reward you for your efforts for the deen of Islam.

    Jum’uah Mubarak to everyone, and get ready for Ramadan, because it’s coming soon!

    baseema,

    Yeah, he’s a keeper 🙂

    Insha Allah, I’m going to keep in mind all that you said. I think you and Gail are right that I need to actively promote the book.  I could probably pull off an interview off better than I give myself credit for LOL But then too, I dunno know LOLWhen I first got my professional job, I was interviewed by a newspaper. They wrote an article about me being one of the few females in the profession. He had to start the recorder over because I drew a blank and couldn’t speak. I was in the news a few times. Now that I’m older, I could probably do better, Insha Allah.

    Thanks for the encouragement though. It’s very kind of you https://www.polygamy411.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_rose.gif

    Oh Ana! what a supportive husband you have!! Go for it!! A tv show sounds awesome! you won’t blank out, I’m sure you’d be great! maybe they could agree to record it so it’s not live and then put it together if ur really worried about that, but i bet you would be stellar! i think it’s a great idea! very timely too, with Ramadan coming up, it would make an interesting story. You could also encourage them to donate something to your favorite charity as a condition of you doing it for them. And of course promote your book!  https://www.polygamy411.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_heart.gifhttps://www.polygamy411.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_rose.gifhttps://www.polygamy411.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gifhttps://www.polygamy411.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_good.gif

    I’m so happy you let me know that you like the cover for the book. The cover is super important. I had a number of them made before I decided on this one. There are many costly hit and misses in trying to get the book right for publishing. It’s challenging, but so rewarding. I’m glad you like the cover. I think it’s representative of the title. 🙂

    Scorpio83,

    Having the blog has been a Godsend for me too 🙂 I’m so grateful to Allah for bringing us all together. We all are meeting so many fantastic people from all over the globe. I never dreamed I’d know people in South Africa. There were people from Australia, Sweden, Egypt and I can’t begin to name all the counties. I had never heard of a few of the countries before being on this blog. We all have so much in common. I used to think there was a world of difference between people from country to country, but we’re all a lot alike. Here we learn we are not alone. We’ve all have got similar problems or know of someone who does.

    I too, pray Allah continues to make this blog flourish.

    As you said, all the sisters are truly an inspiration. You are, too 🙂

    Gina,

    Thank you much for your kind words. I appreciate it.

    I’m with you that a person better think twice before messing over children because they will incur the wrath of Allah. Allah speaks often about the orphans. I don’t think “orphan” has the limited meaning that it’s a child with no parents.

    It’s really nice that you’re making it your mission to educate women in South Africa about how some Pakistani men are when it comes to them being involved with foreign women. I think it’s a good crusade to be involve in. I imagine what I’d do if I got bamboozled by one of those men. Words can’t begin to describe how wrong it is.

    I was never under the impression that a Pakistani woman or any Muslim woman from a Muslim populated country is more pious that any other woman. Women all have nafs (low desires) that they want fulfilled. A woman is a woman. There are some who are subservient to their husband probably because they fear getting the beat down. Fearing a beating probably keeps many of them in line.

    I don’t sense that you are hateful. You’ve been through a lot. You’re just talking about it. Talking about it seems to help. It’s terrible that he didn’t tell you before he married you that he was married already. By the time you found out, you were in too deep. I understand that.

    On the other hand, I agree with your husband that his family won’t accept you. Based on what I learned from Gail, Pakistanis’ aren’t receptive to polygamy. Polygamy is part of Islam and, as we know, they don’t deal much with Islam. They are all about culture. I don’t think you would be vengeful by letting them know about you. You have a right to be known as a wife and not be a secret. Just don’t expect acceptance from them. You can’t get blood from a rock. Don’t expect anything good from them about it. If anything they’ll probably try to make him get rid of you. For your own peace of mind, you could tell them about your marriage, but it’s probably as far as it’s going to go with them – just getting a piece of your mind. Don’t look for any empathy, sympathy or compassion.

    I’m not going to think about book signings or anything like that. A person contacted me from a news station in Chicago and wanted to interview me about polygamy. I told him about the book, which made him even more so interested. I see myself drawing a blank and being unable to answer or think straight. I think I’ll sound stupid or something. I don’t know if I could handle all of that. Sigh. I turned the guy down. My husband says I should do it. The guy said he could blank out my feature and stuff – however I’d want to do it.

So, your son will be driving. That should give you some gray hairs LOL

    I’m glad you’re going to try to check in more regularly. I think you’ve been here on the blog longer than anyone. I think of you often and look for you to comment.

    I couldn’t believe that someone would do such a devious, malicious thing either. It takes an evil person to publish the true identity of a person who doesn’t want their true identity known. They wouldn’t want it done to them. A person who sit around seeking out the info. and putting the pieces together to harm another has to have a sickness and a lackluster life. The only way they can bring meaning to their lives is by being all up in someone else’ and creating mischief. It’s sad.

    As Salaamu Alaikum & hello to you all,

    I thank you all for the wonderful feedback and encouragement. I must say, I’m a bit excited about it and glad the writing part is over. I thought I’d blow a fuse when writing and editing it. We’ll see how things go.My work is just beginning.

    It will be available in all the formats. I just have to figure out how to get a PDF copy or kindle ebook to the writers her for free. Insha Allah I’ll let you all know when to expect it.

    @umm of2,

    No need to order it. Insha Allah, I’ll get it to you. I’ll just email the regulars here on how to get it for free or supply a link. I’m still learning, so please bear with me.

    CONGRATS ANA

    you truly an inspiration to me.I will definitely read your book. I can imagine how many women u going to help as u already have done. With the book u going open most fathers, brother and uncles eyes to what women go thru as well. I will continue to share this blog with south African women who are going through the same thing to share and be educated.

    We need to push forward to educate most women as we need to protect the growing daughter’s of tomorrow.i truly believe we are dealing with a group of men that gave there souls to the devil cause no GOD fearing men would do what those in my case Pakistani men do.

    ANA

    I am a secret wife.I want his family to know not because of revenge but clearly that his parents know as well that they have another daughter in law.co -wife to know I exist.im not a mistress. I am a legal wife to my husband in a country where I was born.

    When I married my husband I did not know he was married. When I found out I was to involved  emotionally.I as a non Muslim at the time accepted the situation.My husband forbids me to contact his family as he says they will never accept me as a 2nd wife to him. YET they grew up in an Islamic state but refuse to accept polygamy.

    So I asked my husband your wife in Pakistan would rather have u sleep with women but not get married. His answer was YES.

    HELLOOO I know ANA u said these women grew up in this type of society so they have no say.i have heard my husband Pakistani wife scream at him.i personally think not all the women in Pakistan are as pious as we think. I have seen a lot of the Pakistani women in south Africa with there husbands they take no bullshit(sorry for my language)

    I have learned my lesson I am still married as I explained mission “get out” is in action already.

    My mission educate educate educate and make women of all ages aware of those narcissistic  Pakistanis.yes I am pointing the at finger at them as I am married to one so I know how they are.

    I know plenty of women who are sitting with children from these men and they don’t give a damn abt the kids.

    I hope in the case of those innocent children ALLAH deal with those man harshly.

    I sound hatefully.Forgive me but u mess with the women and Allah will deal with u but when u mess with the kids ALLAH will punish u  hundred times over.

    Congratulations on the book Ana how amazing. I did read your original blog and it was so intriguing so I can’t wait to read the book!

    Wow Ana

    Congratulations!!!

    I wasn’t here with the previous blog.  I cant believe that some people would be so devious to sit and figure out your true identity and then publish it.  Crazy is one of the less rude words that comes to mind.  I suppose if your own life is so boring you will go look for some excitement in other people’s lives.

    Anyway, Allah always knows best.  Best of luck for the exciting times ahead.

    Gail,

    I missed you so very much. I knew you’ve been very busy. As I mentioned before, just get here when you can. It reminds me of a song by somebody or another. “Just Get Here When You Can.” It’s a beautiful song. I’ve been mentioning you on the blog.

    Insha Allah, June 20th will be a wonderful day for you and me to celebrate. My hubz and celebrated our 14th anniversary on May 24th. we didn’t go away this year cuz I’ve been so buzy with the book.We plan to vacation in December, probably go some place tropical.

    I better run for now and finish watching the Alfred Hitchcock movie, “The Birds.”

Baby Olivia is 4 months and she is just the most precious thing so I guess I am getting use to it.lol My middle son is studying for his driving test and hopefully he will be ready to to take the test this week.I can’t believe he is going to be on the roads driving!

    Arzoo,

    Thank you much!!! Although my identity will be known as a writer, I still won’t talk about my personal life much on the blog. I do need to protect my family and myself. The last thing I need is people who know my family and me coming here and learning that I had sex last night with my husband or other such details of our lives. I’m not that brazen  I’m not that bold and stupid to put my business out there like that whilst I’m known. I did when I was blogging anonymously. Being known is a whole different ballgame.  It’s one of the reasons that I took info off the former version of the blog. The book is written as a fiction, although based on a real story.  I didn’t write it as my story or a memoir.

    I’m sorry I had to delete the name of the sister’s blog. Advertising for other blogs isn’t allowed.  I’m sure others will find her easily if they care to look.

    Anyhow, thanks again. Insha Allah, I’ll get you a free copy as soon as the book is out and I figure out the best way to do get it to those who have supported the blog by writing. I still have so much to do. I’m super busy with it day and night. Sigh. Insha Allah, I’m going to take a bit a of a break for a little while.

    wow! congratulations Ana! its so exciting that you decided to make your story public. I follow another blog the blog owner revealed her identity long time ago. I was worried about her but she got great response. I love checking her updates and really appreciate her for her honesty and sharing her life with so many people. It makes a huge difference when people can see and know you are real person with a real experience on the issue. They develop a whole different level of respect for you. Congrats again for your book!
