Muslim Women

Papatia reblogged this on Between Sisters, SVP! and commented:

I love this interview. As a Muslim author myself, I quickly came to the conclusion that preaching turns people off. But if you share your life experiences with them with hints of faith, they listen. She also said a number of things I like. For instance, short stories are going out of style and idk why. I write them because people's attention span are very small these days. I feel like by writing short stories a lot of my stories get heard! :) Anyways alf mabrook to Saadia Faruqi!
