In ‘Love InshAllah we’re introduced to the raw reality of the American Muslim experience…the levels of religiosity, the many perspectives, the different journeys of love, passion, and faith.

But what drew me to the anthology were not just the stories, but the women behind them. The realization that I could relate to each and every single one of them and that just as my story is multi-dimensional and justified… so is everyone else’s story. After reading Love InshAllah I learned to accept more, love more, care more… and, most importantly, pray more.’
