On Saturdey, December 17, 2016

In the name of God Most Merciful, Most Beneficent. May He grant peace and blessings upon Prophet Muhammad, and all prophets and messengers, including Abraham, Moses, and Jesus.

To every English speaking Muslim woman and man who are interested in getting closer to their Lord and are so concerned about true justice, real freedom, and permanent peace in the land whether it is the US, UK, or any other country, Muslim or non-Muslim; to every English speaking non-Muslim woman and man who are interested in learning about Islam: I am so excited to announce the publishing of the first volume of the English translated book, The Muslim Woman: Journey into the Light, by Imam Abdessalam Yassine, may God have mercy on his soul.

This book, The Muslim Woman: Journey into the Light, addresses, primarily, what should be your #1 key question and concern in life; How do I strengthen my relationship with my Lord?

The book outlines a proven, practical method that has inspired and empowered hundreds of thousands of women worldwide to embark on a journey to achieving nearness to God and making a great impact on society. It is a comprehensive method for change that addresses the key issues related to your personal, social, familial, professional, and spiritual life, and directs all of them in serving your primary purpose in life; nearness to God. It is also a practical guide on how to face and overcome the major challenges of a Muslim woman in the modern world. In fact, this first published volume addresses two top main challenges:

  1. Muslim Women and Comprehensive Change and
  2. The Believing Woman in a Turbulent World.

Why did we translate the book into English? It is mainly to guide the American Muslim woman, the British Muslim woman, and the English-speaking Muslim woman in general, in overcoming the major obstacles hindering her from successfully journeying to her Lord and reviving her noble role as originally outlined by Prophet Muhammed, may God bless him and grant him peace. One of these major obstacles is the prevalence of some narrow interpretations of Islam among Muslim communities especially in the US and UK. The other obstacle is the objectification of women in a global culture dominated by materialism and consumerism.

This book enlightens you to understand what these major obstacles truly are and the history behind them so that you can overcome them and plan for a better and brighter future with a fresh new journey to God, guided by an interpretation of Islam that is current, relevant, and directly drawn from the source, the pure source, the best of creation, Prophet Muhammed, may God bless him and grant him peace.

This book enlightens you to redefine and revive your God given noble role as a woman as it was masterfully performed by the best role models of women that mankind has ever witnessed, such as the honorable mothers of the believers Khadija and ‘A’icha, may God be pleased with them. It is the role of a strong woman with full trust in her Lord, a powerful woman with outstanding competencies, and a very well respected woman with an essential role in reviving Islam and making it relevant to her own society whether it is the US, UK, or any other country, Muslim or non-Muslim. It is a role that is equally important and necessary as that of man, in a beautifully complementary and collaborative way.

This new book, as well stated by its author, “… seeks to direct the readers’ minds and focus their sights on the mother of all issues that has otherwise been neglected: the fact that the servant is inevitably heading back to their Lord.” Therefore, are you well prepared to head back to your Lord in the highest possible state of nearness to Him? How do you achieve this nearness to your Lord in the midst of all the current challenges and obstacles? The answer is exactly in this new book The Muslim Woman: Journey into the Light.

The ultimate Light is your Lord. All Praise is due to Him Most High, Mighty and Majestic.
