Love InshAllah: The Secret Love Lives of American Muslim Women  

 

In this groundbreaking collection, American Muslim women writers sweep aside stereotypes to share their real-life tales of flirting, dating, longing, and sex. Their stories show just how varied the search for love can be--from singles' events and college flirtations to arranged marriages, all with a uniquely Muslim twist.

Praise for Love, InshAllah

"24 portraits of private lives that expose a group in some cases kept literally veiled, yet that also illustrate that American Muslim women grapple with universal issues." —The New York Times

“With a sonic boom, Love, InshAllah breaks through the tired sound bytes and stereotypes that can drown out authentic voices of Muslim women. This refreshingly diverse collection of stories about heartbreak, happily-ever-afters, and everything in between, affirms that no one—orthodox or progressive, gay or straight—is immune from the universal hunger to love and be loved.”—Nafisa Haji, award-winning author of The Writing on My Forehead and The Sweetness of Tears
