Description :

Offers a glimpse into the lives of a community of women, most of whom are converts to Islam, and invites you to share their joys, sorrows, convictions, and faith. This book looks into the lives of just some of the extraordinary women who, like the author, have chosen to live behind the veil.


Covered from head to toe, with only her eyes visible, the sight of a Muslim woman on a Western city street rarely fails to provoke a strong reaction. Feelings of shock, horror, repulsion, pity - or even fear - are not uncommon. But have you ever wondered about the woman `behind the veil'? Have you ever wondered what her life is really like and how her hopes, dreams and aspirations differ from yours?


Now, in From My Sisters' Lips, Na'ima B. Robert offers a rare glimpse into the lives of a community of women, most of whom are converts to Islam and invites you to share their joys, sorrows, convictions and faith. 


Na'ima recounts the compelling story of her conversion to Islam she also offers first-hand accounts of just some of the extraordinary women she has come to know in recent years - women like herself who have chosen to live as Muslims. What emerges is a vivid and intimate portrait of a sisterhood. As they speak candidly on diverse subjects ranging from marriage to motherhood, stereotypes, submission and self-image, we hear the strong, proud voices of those who are seldom heard.



'An extremely thought-provoking book that challenges Western preconceptions of Islamic Women' ---Daily Telegraph.
