Currently Writing


Hello readers, 


I'm Fida Islaih. I love writing poetry. It's an art and my form of expression.

I write for Muslim American Girls magazine and a column for Modest Beautiful Muslima. Currently, I'm working on a novel and three poetry chapbooks. The novel is about a Muslim girl who is about to enter her first year of high school and decides to wear the hijab. She faces many stares and teases that she can't stand people until she meets a girl who is interested in Islam. The poetry chapbooks are poems about faith, nature, and frustrations.

Both stories are from my experiences and I hope people will understand who I am. I like to see what I write through the years so insha'Allah I hope to continue this blog through my adulthood.

Salaam sis,
First of all, I'm loving your new blog layout! It's very serene :)

I'm glad to see you're working on a novel too! Keep up the great work; this is a great opportunity for you to be one of the few Muslim authors out there in the market writing inspirational stories.

It's great to see you're working on poetry too. I was never the one who could write many poems unless given a topic to write about.

Take care and hope to talk soon,
Aminah
