This blog is published for the sake of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala and the thousands of Muslims raised or reverts, or even non-Muslis, who might be living in areas where they are not able to experience Ramadan in a Muslim community; so we, at MWA, invite you to be a part of our community in Ramadan.

The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion (between right and wrong) Al-Baqarah 2:185

Established in 2006, Muslimah Writers Alliance (MWA) is an internationally-based collaboration of Muslim women writers and advocates working together to counter negative and inaccurate perceptions regarding members of the Muslim community and the Islamic faith.

A Ramadan iftar journal entry from MWA's Saba N. Taylor: July 15, 2013

For the past few years, the some of the sisters in  my community have gotten together and hosted all-sister iftars. These iftars encourage sisters in the community to make new friends while strengthening their bonds with old friends. It is also a great way for converts and new sisters to the area to make new Muslimah friends. (See 'read more' link under photo.)

July 15th was our first sisters iftar and, Masha'Allah, we had such a great turn-out.

The hostess made a delicious Afghani rice dish. as well as a couple other dishes, and the rest of us brought a dish to add and share with the group.

It was a beautiful night, Masha'Allah. I met three new sisters and got to see a few sisters that I had not seen in a while :)

The meal was fabulous, Masha'Allah! Ramadan brings us closer to Allah (swt), but it also brings us closer to our community as well.

Insha'Allah, I pray you all have a wonderful and blessed Ramadan.
