Assalamu alaikum,

You all know I keep my eyes peeled for anything dealing with beauty as fodder for my (someday insha’Allah!) book. I have a few treats for you:

Imam Zaid Shakir posts about our Beautiful Religion (part one and two); make sure to read them both. Also, Umm Yusuf reminds us what makes a beautiful character as a Muslim woman.

Wassalam,

Assalamu ‘alaikum,
I LOVE anything to do with nutrition, natural healing, holistic health and preventitive medicine. I have the book Healing with the Medicine of the Prophet [At-Tibb An-Nabi] (sallallahu ‘alayhi wassalam) by Imam Ibn Qayyim Al-Jauziyah (written over 650 years ago), and love books like SuperfoodsRx. I’ll do anything to avoid taking medicine. (Although I really don’t believe in homeopathy. Hey, I’m a scientist!) So imagine my delight when I heard MeccaOne‘s podcast interview with Dr. Karim Abdullah. Then I remembered a link from SunniSister about Hakim Archuletta, and from there I went to his website, and I found out there’s a Yahoo! Group devoted to Islamic Natural Healing! This is right up my alley! I’m tickled pink! The messages are available to the public. Check it out!

Assalamu alaikum,

Say I wanna write a novel featuring a (fictional) strong female lead character. Say she also happens to be an Allah-fearing practicing Muslimah, who wears hijab. What is prudent to reveal, and what must one conceal?

Read the inspirational blog entry and my comment query here.

Any ideas?

What I’m Reading

Assalamu alaikum,

I love to read. If I didn’t have to work or study, I don’t think I’d do anything but read all day. It’s kind of an addiction. (more…)
