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.
