Muslim Girl in America

I'm an American girl, born and raised, and a Muslim.

About Me

This blog is about me: a perpetually 29-year-old girl in America who is also a Muslim. I hope I don’t offend anyone with this blog. I just want to detail my experiences as I seek a happy life. I’m not your typical Muslim girl (whatever that means) – I don’t wear a hijab or head covering on a daily basis, but I believe in God (Allah), pray 5 times a day, fast during Ramadan, work hard, and pray for a better life for myself and my loved ones.


I hope you’ll follow me as I describe my experiences as a Muslim girl in America; my experiences trying to sustain my traditional upbringing and beliefs in a modern world.

    Assalmu aliakum M,

    I stumbled on your blog a couple of hours ago and thought it was quite interesting. I would like to say that I’ve enjoyed reading all of them. After finish reading one, I couldn’t hold myself back from reading another. I actually didn’t sleep last night because of them. I guess the bright side is at least I didn’t have to wake up for salat al fajir since I was up already. The downside is it’s pass 6 A.M. in NY I got work in a few hours and I’m still wide awake😳. Well I will like to end this letter by saying that I look foward to your next blog and inshallah one day you’ll publish your short stories and find the right man for you. Until then, stay safe, lets hope you don’t waste your time meeting up with any more men who party and drink occasionally or what I like to call fuslim(fake muslim), and I hope you enjoy the first day of summer.
