    Dear Shelina Zahra Janmohamed,

    I have recently read your book ‘Love in a headscarf’ and found it very interesting. It highlights Muslim women’s perspective of life in a western society. I think religion is important but living in a western world can sometimes have an influence on religion.

    I am an undergraduate Muslim student studying journalism at Sheffield Hallam University. As part of my dissertation I am looking at why Muslim women wear the hijab. I am also hoping to look at how beliefs change in different generations.

    I understand you recently did an interview with Angela Robson from the BBC. Angela is my dissertation supervisor and she suggested it would be a good idea to do an interview with you. Would you have time to do this? Your help and support would be hugely appreciated.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Many Thanks

    Rahema Begum

    Salaam! Thank you for passing on some of your wisdom to me, your words have been resonating with me for a couple of days now. I’m in that strange part of life now myself where I’m searching for too many things at once. Of course, I’m nervous and terrified, I have my days when I want to throw responsibility out the window and be five again. I am not sure how things will possibly turn out almost right for me, but I’ve found some comfort in LIAH. Thanks :)

    Good work.

    We also need to re-establish our connection with Quran, and the way we can change out lives, just because Allah asks us to do certain things & forbids some. As it has been instructed to :enter in the Islam, completely”.

    Unfortunately we’ve left Quran, inside the upper shelves of our studies, out of sheer respect, whereas it was their to be acted upon.
