Hello readers and a belated Eid Mubarak to you all!
To keep up that #RamadanRecharge even after the holy month, we are announcing the start of our new MG book club.
Every month, we plan on reading a book affiliated with either women’s rights or religion. We plan on discussing content read within the staff and with our readers through Facebook lives and comment sections!
The book selected for July will be….
*Can I get a drumroll, please?*
“Women in the Qur’an: An Emancipatory Reading“ by the wickedly talented Asma Lamrabet.
The book grapples with finding a point of equilibrium between coddled conservative Islam and westernized Islam that is often seen as too liberal.
“At the heart of this debate Muslim women are seeking to reclaim their right to speak in order to re-appropriate their own destinies, calling for the equality and liberation that is at the heart of the Qur’an,” Lamrabet’s own introduction reads.
The book seeks to resurge the often diluted message regarding women’s rights. We chose Lamrabet’s work for our first book because it aligns exactly with Muslim Girl’s ideals and vision.
Get your copies this week, and come next Monday, get crackin’! Post a selfie of you and your book and tag Muslim Girl with the hashtag #MGBookClub!
