Empowering women through Islam, not from Islam
Welcome to Mosaic, a colorful artwork of Muslim women from all over the world who have extraordinary acheivements. It is a platform in which to recognize the unrecognized, celebrate the accomplished, and bring together a wide diversity of women who exemplify the image of a Muslimah.
Our Mosaic would not be complete without the Muslim women of the past, starting from the time of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) and working through over 1400 years of Islam in order to show the empowerment and freedom Islam has brought to women. For 1400 years, Islam has enabled women to vote, inherit, keep their own last names, have careers and be equal to men. The situation of women in certain countries are the result of culture and government and not at all consequences of Islam, although some people might wrongly use the name of the religion to justify their actions.
Every week, we will feature a woman from the past and a woman from the present in order to paint a true picture in your mind about Muslim women.
I hope with this blog, I can provide young Muslim girls with role models and show them that anything is possible. Hijab and Islam only encourage you towards your success. I want young Muslim girls to see other Muslim women, both past and present, who are successful in all genres, from all races, in all places of the world.
