Hello Folks! Salaam!
It has been a long time since I showed myself in this beloved space of mine, but here I am…
I am thrilled to announce my theme for this year’s A-Z Blogging Challenge: “Muslim Women’s Bookshelf: An A-Z Guide to Inspirational Reads”. As a Muslim woman and a voracious reader, I have always been passionate about discovering new and meaningful books that speak to my faith and identity.
When Ramadan approached, I began searching for a reading list that would help me reflect and connect with my spirituality, but I found very few resources that were suitable for adults. I realized that I needed to create a list of my own, one that would not only inspire me but also help other Muslim women find books that would nourish their minds and souls.
Thus, the idea for “Muslim Women’s Bookshelf: An A-Z Guide to Inspirational Reads” was born. Throughout the month of April, I will be sharing a comprehensive list of books that cover a wide range of topics, from spirituality to history, self-help to Seerah. Each book has been carefully selected to ensure that it speaks to the unique experiences and challenges of Muslim women. I have carefully selected books that are either recently published or frequently mentioned on social media to provide a diverse range of reading options for beginner readers. I have opted not to include academic books, as I do not feel qualified to provide guidance on such specialized texts. While there may be differing views and opinions on certain topics or theological matters, my advice is to approach these books with an open mind and take from them what is most beneficial to you. As with any subject, there can be room for discussion and debate, but ultimately, the goal is to gain knowledge and insights that can enhance our lives and understanding of the world around us.
Through this blog series, I hope to encourage Muslim women to take the time to read and reflect on the knowledge and wisdom that our faith has to offer. I believe that reading can be a powerful tool for personal growth and development and that it can help us deepen our connection with Allah (SWT) and our community.
So join me on this journey as we explore the world of contemporary Islamic literature together. Let’s create a space where Muslim women can find inspiration, guidance, and a sense of belonging.
