about

"These are twenty-two personal stories, told by women from practically all backgrounds and persuasions--devout and not-so devout, professionals and housewives, westernized and traditional, wearing jeans, hijab, or niqab, and originally from Africa to North America to Pakistan to the Middle East--revealing in their own ways what it means to them to be a Muslim woman (a "Muslimah"). What we get is a complex of stories, all united by two simple ideas--faith and nationality (Canadian). Included here is an account by Zunera Ishaq, who challenged the Harper government in court on the issue of niqab."--

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tugs my Emotions - Inspiring The Muslimah Who Fell to Earth: Personal Stories by Canadian Muslim Women Edited by Saima S. Hussain My definition of a good book whether fiction or non-fiction, is something that brings me new knowledge, new perspective, and most importantly can tug on my emotions. This book did all that and more. These strong and courageous Muslim Women shared personal stories to help break down myths and stereotypes that are systemically engrossed in our Canadian Culture. They indirectly provided insight into how each individual and each community (whether Muslim or not) influence the way we treat difference. Most importantly they help us see the sameness in all of us, no matter what race, religion, sexual orientation, etc/… For me sameness was on page 83, I’m sure that most first and even second/third generation immigrants, like me, will understand, “and besides they had no money for toys. But we were rich in other ways; and poverty was a great teacher.” I believe that everyone should read this book. I truly believe there will be a different learning for each person, and this is the beauty that is within this book.
