Mindworks Publishing released its first anthology entitled The Muslimah Speaks: Her Voice, Her Spirit, April 12, 2014; a collection of poetry that highlights the voices of Muslim women from around the globe and sheds light upon some of the experiences, beliefs, aspirations and relationships of modern Muslimahs.
The Muslimah Speaks was compiled because too often than not it is instilled in women, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, from a very young age through the interactions that they have with others, and by the images that they are bombarded with daily that their voices are not as important as men’s. Women’s’ stories are seldom re-told in a manner that is easy to understand and to relate to for application in our own lives. The Muslimah Speaks: Her Voice, Her Spirit displays the varied perspectives of modern Muslim women concerning their faith while dispelling myths concerning the lack of a strong and knowledgeable female voice in Islam. This anthology features original poetry written by Muslim women writers of today from around the globe and is accentuated by excerpts of the Holy Qur’an, the Holy Bible and the Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad, may peace be upon him.
