Realising she knew very little about her religion made her wonder whether she can call herself a ‘Muslim’. She sets out to find answers to her questions and this book shares the experience of her quests. This book asks and also answers many questions Muslims nowadays often have but afraid or reluctant to voice out.

“Islam is simple, but being a Muslim in a modern world is not. Every day is a battle that each of us have to face. It is easy to get swept away and lose one’s identity. The constant struggle is to find out who we are and how to remain steadfast.”
