Muslimah = A female Muslim.
Salaams (Peace). I’m Sarah.
I grew up in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia and completed my undergraduate studies in social sciences and literature at LUMS in Lahore, Pakistan. I completed a certificate in book publishing, did a few stints in the Canlit world, and am now studying for a Master of Information degree at the University of Toronto. At the end of 2012, I became an editor at Altmuslimah. Huzzah!
This blog is on faith and books in strange times: a mashup of reading, writing, and being Muslim in the digital age. Given how these things are undergoing radical transformations in today’s world, I want to give a humanistic perspective on the Muslim readerly and writerly experiences. This goal is rooted in the idea that just like one cannot help but believe and have faith, one cannot help but be driven by the urge to create, or to be a reader who is blissfully lost in the world of ideas.
Enjoy, and read and write good things.
