As soon as I first heard about this anthology being published I knew I had to buy it as soon as it released A book that is written by Muslim women about their experiences Yup I need it Just reading the introduction had me hookedIt’s not about the bura brings together Muslim women’s voices It does not represent the experiences of every Muslim woman or claim to cover every single issue faced by Muslim women It’s not possible to create that book But this book is a start a movement we Muslim women are reclaiming and rewriting our identityEach essay is so powerful that even though some were relatable than others I still loved them all because they all dealt with issues that I can relate to They discuss so many relevant issues that Muslim women deal with especially living in the west from misogyny racism to islamophobia and taboo subjects in the community and how each of them has been affected by it and how they dealt with itWhile reading the essays I would often stop and need to go talk to my husband about the topics that were being discussed It reignited my passion about speaking out about so many issues that are so common with our communities I felt heard and that I wasn’t alone in feeling like thisSome of my favourite essays were by Sufiya Ahmed Nafisa Bakkar Afia Ahmed Jamilla Hekmoun and Mariam Khan I resonated with these essays SO MUCH Sufiya was talking about Khadijah ra and how much Khadijah ra inspired her I felt the same Khadijah ra has been one of my role models since I was a teenager so it was wonderful to see someone else speak about her and how much she loved her Khadijah’s ra life and all that she achieved made a huge impact in my lifeAbove all Khadijah ra taught me that I had every right to exist as I chose Just like she did as the wealthiest merchant in MeccaNafisa’s essay was so thought provoking and written so elouently in a way that I would never be able to express myself She made me rethink the way I see diversity in the media how Muslim women are shown in the media when it comes to brands wanting to show diversity I loved reading her essay so much and it sparked many discussions with people I spoke toWhat is the point of being represented if it is only our image that is invited to the tableAfia’s essay brought me to tears She wrote about something that I had been feeling for a while yet I had no one to speak to about it She wrote about how I feel when it comes to how I feel about the hijab and how “Muslim friendly” attire is shown to us and how all of this can affect my relationship with God I felt so seenNo I don’t take kindly to my religion and ideology being co opted and appropriated as a money making scheme I do not take kindly to aspects of my religion suddenly being acceptable and not only tolerated but celebrating only when a tall white model is dressed in my ethno religious attireJamilla spoke about a subject filled with misconceptions and ignorance in the Muslim community She spoke about mental health and what it means to be Muslim and have depression and anxiety How people will tell you to just pray and you will be fine and how you can’t possibly be Muslim and depressed A notion that doesn’t actually exist in Islam As someone who has anxiety it’s a topic close to my heart and one that I still have difficulty discussing with pe
