“ Before the Brotherhood came, you could see everyone's arms and legs. We never used to notice. But now that woman are covering so much, all I can think about is those round calves and silky arms and the hair, smelling of coconut. I never used to think about a neck before, but ooh, a neck is so sexy now. ...more ”
“ Who would care if I became pregnant, who would be scandalized? Aunty Eva, Anwar's flatmates. Omar would never know unless I wrote to him. Uncle Saleh was across the world. A few years back, getting pregnant would have shocked Khartoum society, given my father a heart attack, dealt a blow ti my mother's marriage, and mild, modern Omar, instead of beating me, would called me a slut.

[close] Dear Readers Asalamualaikum, As part of our research for our Thinking Muslim Courses and our ongoing podcasts, The Thinking Muslim and A Muslim Mom we find ourselves reading as many books and essays about current trends of thinking and Islam. There is so much thought-provoking material out there! Alhumdulilah we've been discovering so much! We decided to start The Thinking Muslim Book Club, as we want to share what we're learning, encourage wide and challenging reading, and hear the thoughts of others. This book club is dedicated to exploring issues in some more depth and untangling the complexities of the world around us. The club was created after we began delivering our first pilot course in the UK (see our website for new courses). As part of the sessions, we regularly posted accompanying reading material and was prompted by many of our participants to formalise a book club. The plan is to periodically read a title and then to organise avenues for discussion. We aim to have at least two books ongoing. One for general books with an end of month discussion for brothers and sisters and one specifically for sisters, which may focus on a book of specific interest. Of course, sisters are free to join either. Join our telegram channel to receive updates https://t.me/thinkingmuslim Wasalam Farhat Amin & The Thinking Muslim Team!
