“As a woman in this world, it is important to take up space and make yourself heard even if it intimidates and offends powerful men.”
Samra Habib, We Have Always Been Here: A Queer Muslim Memoir

“Grown-ups, who are supposed to protect their children, are limited by what "best" has felt like to them, based on the circumstances they grew in and the privilege they did or did not have. The lines between grown-up and child were often blurred between me and my mom. Her "best" did not look like mine; in fact, it looked like danger. It felt like surrender.”
Samra Habib, We Have Always Been Here: A Queer Muslim Memoir

“It's no wonder I was so fascinated. The kind of home I imagine--one that offers stability and encouragement and the space to learn and grow as an individual--is a luxury I never had growing up.”
Samra Habib, We Have Always Been Here: A Queer Muslim Memoir
