    1. Twenty-one women contributed to The Muslimah Who Fell to Earth: Personal Stories by Canadian Muslim Women, edited by Saima S. Hussain.

    3. My friend sent me this book which was edited by her friend. It is a book of twenty- one personal stories written by Muslim women in Canada. I found the diversity of the writers to be eye-opening. They were from different countries, different backgrounds, and subscribed to different beliefs about Islam.

Some have faced personal tragedy, others have overcome ethnic challenges, yet others have had an easy ride but they [...]

My only critiques is that I would have liked more stories from black and/or queer Muslim women. As far as I could tel [...]

    7. I am one of the 21 people who wrote about their experiences in this book. It was a great opportunity for me to write about my own experience being born and raised in Canada while having to deal with trying to fit between both cultures and still not fitting into either one as a result.e other ladies also poured their soul into their pieces.It is a must read just to show you that even Muslims come from all walks of life and with various levels of cultural and religious identities.
