Carol B Ghattas began her work in the mission field in West Africa before returning to the United States to earn a Masters of Divinity degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. She has served alongside her husband in the mission field for more than seventeen years, living in Muslim countries throughout North Africa and the Middle East. She has also studied the lives of Muslim women and, under an Arabic pseudonym,Um Daoud, has authored Things I Never Told My Mother, one of several books about the difficulties Muslims face in coming to Christ.
Um Daoud means "Mother of David". Carol chose this pseudonym to identify with the many Muslim women who go by the name of their firstborn son when they become mothers. Under that pen name she has authored Lust Under the Veil Carol Ghattas and her husband, Dr. Raouf Ghattas, have lived and served together for over 20 years; among Muslims in the USA, the Middle East, North Africa and around the world.
Together they have written A Christian Guide to the Qur'an: Building Bridges in Muslim Evangelism.
"It is through this book we seek to help Christians better share their faith with Muslims. It is our deepest desire that through our works and our experiences, Christians will come to love, pray for, and reach Muslims for Christ."

Without a Faith Oct 24, 2008
This book is a logical follow-up to the author's first book, LUST UNDER THE VEIL. This book shows the secular Muslim lifestyle and a young woman who lives it, until she comes in contact with people with a living faith. The author has lived among these people and understands their varied lifestyles. She tells a compelling story that is an easy read. This book is for older youth and adults, as there are sexual situations. These situations are important to the understanding of the culture and lifestyle.
I am Confused Jul 27, 2008
There is something that is not adding up with me. It is so confusin the muslim world with the christian verses ... how come? As a muslim I know the terms that muslim people say ... and it does not come from the bible. can somebody explain it for me? please ?
Not what it seems... Jun 5, 2008
This book is a disguised religious propaganda! First, Um Daoud seems to be a group of writers rather than one person. There is nowhere any bio on "her". Then the so-called "fresh description of Muslim life" is laughable. Second, even the "good reviews" with names like Um Caleb, seems to be written by another "colleague". Third, I am from Tunisia, and although the cities and places are accurate enough, it doesn't reflect the life or the living style of Muslim people there. Finally, from the quick read of the first half of the book, the story switches from simple bible quotation to full-blown bible copy. The publisher Xulon is a Christian Publishing Company and was "Founded by Christian author and publisher Tom Freiling..", The book is basically saying that unless you are Christian, you are doomed, violent, and un-civilized. They should put a disclamer such as Religious propaganda, or commercial for the Church.
Beautifully Told Feb 13, 2008
Um Daoud has done it again ( Lust under the Veil ) Things I never told my mother was beautifully written. We have to sit there and wonder that every time that we sit there and complain about something stupid, when here these poor woman have to walk around with something covering them, there told who they have to marry...and they don't dare speak to the man unless they are spoken too...what a sad and scary life...my heart goes out to them...they have there dreams...if you enjoyed this book read Lust under the veil ( Um Daoud ) another beautifully written Novel...ANGELA
Even better! Apr 21, 2007
I have read the first book that Um Daoud wrote and found it intriging. The author writes in such a realistic way that I was instantly drawn into the plight of the women. It was a fasinating exploration into the lives of women in the Muslim culture. The transition from Islam was one I would not soon forget. All women should have such hope!
