My name is Asmaa Mursi, I'm a British Muslim of Egyptian origin and teaching Tajweed, Arabic language, Quranic Arabic and the director of Muslimah.
Living in Luton for the last ten years I have seen an emerging and growing confidence within the muslim women of this town. Luton's Muslim women are not only socially active in all spectrums and areas of work, education but also Political and community engagement. However this empowered confidence has not been fully showcased or introduced to other women in the town and it has been ignored by the media.
In the past I struggled to find a local resource for articles, and issues that effect muslim women written by muslim women or a platform to bring muslim women of all walks of life in Luton to be united.
Therefore I felt it to be necessary to provide a website that will not only discuss issues but also collect all the stories of our sisters locally , and promote forthcoming activities being held in and around the community and events nationally.
I hope the Muslimah website will be our voice.Most importantly I hope the website will be a shining example for our youth to take further pride in their Muslim identity and engage in the celebration of our Islamic history. We descend from an honourable rich history of dynamic Muslim women I wish to celebrate the achievement of our sisters past, present and future.
I hope as a muslim women of this town you can help me celebrate our achievements by contributing to this website. So as I have already mentioned in this blog I would like to highlight the women in our Islamic history and their roles, women who play an important role in today's modern world and particularly in Luton. I do encourage Muslim women to take part with me in this, to help collect as many articles as possible about Muslim women contributing positively to our communities. Please if you have or would like to produce an interesting article then please email firstname.lastname@example.org and I would like women and girls to start a discussion on how we could follow this example in our modern world.
