That’s the October 2011 issue of Sisters, UK’s first magazine for fabulous Muslim women! It’s my second hard copy of the magazine and I can assure you it’s a great lifestyle magazine with topics that cover all walks of life. It says in their website: The magazine’s ethos is rooted in the Qur’an and Sunnah, according to the understanding of the Pious Predecessors, and our inspiration is Islam as a beautiful and richly rewarding way of life.
The October issue is packed with a collection of interesting articles. Sisters share personal accounts on the journey of Hajj and the spirit behind the rituals of this pilgrimage. There’s an article on women’s health. A great story is shared by another sister on how Qur’an came alive in her heart during a difficult pregnancy that involved physical affliction. You can also find tips on how to improve your child’s schooling experience, and how to handle learning disabilities in toddlers and preschoolers. Then there’s Ask Megan, where your marriage-related questions are answered.
There’s more! I recommend reading The Hijrah Dialogues, chronicles of the adventures and trials of brave Muslim women as they seek out their own spot on earth, in search of that elusive greener grass. There’s also an collection of fashion ideas, clothes with the hues of autumn.
For food lovers there’s recipes for strawberry pavlova, pies, soup, and the special crumbly egg square dessert from one of my favorite food bloggers, Mona. Oh, and there’s a couple of competitions too where you get the chance to win cool prizes!
Here’s another important reason why you should get a copy of this magazine:
I love writing. So when I received my complimentary copy yesterday I was totally over the moon and jumping about on cloud nine! Grab your copy as soon as it hits your local bookstores, or if Sisters is not available in your area you can go to their website and subscribe to receive Sisters regularly.
