She has a voice of her own...
She has a place of equality within the fellowship of the believers...
She is ready to tell her story in her own words...
The legacy of the women of the Abrahamic Prophetic tradition lives on.

The Muslimah Speaks: Her Voice, Her Spirit Volume I is an anthology collection featuring original poetry by Muslim women writers,  accentuated by excerpts of hadith of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), and scriptures of the Holy Quran and Holy Bible.

More often than not, it is instilled in women from a very young age, through the interactions that they have with others and media images that they are bombarded with daily, that their voices are not as important as men's. It is our intention to highlight the voices of Muslim women while showcasing the connection between them and the faithful women of the Abrahamic scriptures and among the female companions of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
