Categories:

I. Islamic Guide:

is where we discuss, answer questions, and add our one cent (we wish we had two cents!) about Islam and the Muslims.

II. Convert Central:

is where we share our individual journeys to Islam; how we have navigated through cultures, communities, and countries; discuss the unique situations converts face in the West; and try to give some “been there” advice.

III. Women In Islam:

is where we remind women of their rights, deconstruct stereotypes about Muslims women, and sometimes just get girly.

IV. Take Back Islam:

is where we get indignant about what is being done in the name of Islam. That’s right, we are taking our religion back from the nut jobs.

V. Humanity:

is where we concern ourselves with dispelling made up nonsense about Muslims and get promote some some good causes.

VI. All Things Halal:

is where we get cookin’ and share recipes that avoid pork, alcohol and other bad-for-you stuff.

VII. All Things Hijab:

is 1 part DIY. 1 part fashion. And 2 parts discussion about modesty and what it means to the Muslim.

VIII. Stuff by Gracie Lawrence:

is where “Lawrence the Younger”, reporting from Canada, puts society and religion under the microscope.

IX. Stuff by Stephanie Siam:

is where “Siam, I am” weaves glorious narratives and gives her vantage point as an American convert living in the Middle East.

X. Stuff by Kaighla Um Dayo:

is where “the mother of Dayo” gets down to some serious storytelling with the unique perspective of a recent divorcee/survivor of polygyny, mother of four, and former evangelical Christian now Muslim American living abroad.

XI. Stuff by Theresa Corbin:

is where “Corbin the Elder” goes off on tangents, cracks wise, and gives her sarcastic perspective from the Dirty South.
