About Me


My name is Tasneem

I am:

A nutritionist

A photographer

A writer

A daughter

A blogger

A chef

An entrepreneur

A sister

A dreamer

A student



But most importantly I am a PROUD Muslim woman and my religion has enabled me to be the woman I am today. I started this blog after realizing there was no platform to recognize Muslim women who have amazing accomplishments. Our mainstream media is saturated with images and stories of Muslim women who are “oppressed” which does not represent the large majority of Muslim women. With Mosaic you can join me in meeting all these women around the world and learning about the amazing women of our past.

    Hello Tasneem,

    Your mom just sent me the link to your new ‘Mosaic” webiste. I think it’s not only a great website but it’s also a great idea. And I think it’s needed…. it will support and improve the Muslim woman image in this crazy, false and media-saturated world we are living in today.
    I especially liked what you wrote in your profile – “About Me” – above.

    I admire you for your initiatives and I’m really proud to be your friend….

    I wish you success in everything you do!

    All my love,

    Lorie B.

    MashAllah what a lovely and important site. May God bless your efforts!

  4. Salam Tasneem! 🙂

    I stumbled across your blog as I curiously googled Khawla bint al-Azwar. I was intrigued as she was described to me as one of the greatest warriors in Islam but her name was unbeknownst to me. What lovely treasures I found in not only her story but the lives of so many pious women! MashAllah. Over the past hour, I have devoured each of your posts. THANK YOU SOO MUCH for lighting up my day and for your noble efforts to portray the believing woman in magnificent light.

    I, like many others, eagerly await your future posts! 🙂
    Also, if there are any books that you have come across in your research that you would highly recommend, especially regarding the believing women, please do share.

    Take care,
    Your sister in faith 🙂

  5. Assalamualaikum Tasneem

    I have come across your blog two days ago, and I am so thrilled, and grateful for your effort in recognizing Muslim women and the Islamic content on your site. I am currently in the midst of planning my wedding but I am making time in between all these tasks to sit back, relax, and enjoy your articles. 🙂

    Thanks again. Take care

    • Wa alaikum asalam Uzma,

      I apologize for the long gap that has happened with the posts. Between graduate school and many other changes things have been a bit hectic and unfortunately I needed to take a small break from posting. Inshallah posting will start back up soon at the start of November. Keep an eye out 😉 I am so honored and humbled that you enjoy this blog.

    Ustadh Meki teaches the following subjects:

    Classical Arabic Language – Beginners to advanced

    This course is a well structured, progressive course that has been carefully designed to teach Arabic in a non-Arabic-speaking environment to learners from a broad age range. This course also aims to provide learners with a basic knowledge of Arabic grammar, enabling the learner to take their first steps in understanding and using non-verbal sentences. The teacher will use a variety of exercises which will help the learner to understand and master each of the patterns occurring in the lesson. The vocabulary will range from classical and Quranic Arabic to words and expressions current in modern Arabic.

    First Step to Quran Reading

    This course is for those students who wish to take their first steps into learning to read and write the Arabic script of the Qur’an starting from the Alphabet with its (Makhraj) correct pronunciations. It will cover learning the letters, vowel and the basic rules needed for Quranic reading. At the end of the course the student will be able to read the Quran and identify the letters, vowels and different symbols of tajweed. The reader will also learn a very easy simplified way of linking the letters and vowels together to read the Quran correctly

    As-salamu alaykum wa rahamtullah,

    I’ve been teaching from the book, Muhaddathat: Women Scholars in Islam by Nadwi because I also feel we also need to learn and recognize the contributions made by our women scholars. It’s wonderful that your blog also includes inspiring women that are in our daily lives. I’m very pleased to learn of your blog and hope that it helps others learn and recognize the contributions of the women of Islam.

    um Ahmad
