Love, InshAllah edited by Nura Maznavi & Ayesha Mattu

Edited by Nura Maznavi and Ayesha Mattu, Love InshAllah: The Secret Love Lives of American Muslim Women (2012) is about so much more than love and faith.

Really, more than anything, this collection of personal narratives drives home the diversity and individuality found in the American Muslim community. This is exactly my kind of book because I enjoy learning about other people, especially on an individual level, and other cultures.

My favorite entries include Asiila Imani's Three, about polygyny, and Safiyyah Levine's From Shalom to Saalam, about being born to a Jewish father and Catholic mother before exploring other options and eventually choosing Islam.

You can learn more about the contributors, including some fantastic "teasers" at the book's site here.

My overall personal rating of Love, InshAllah is an A.
