Light For The Lost Soul by Mizz Nina

7 islamic books to read during ramadhan light for the lost soul by mizz nina

Light for the lost soul is a book that would benefit people who like the title says is a lost soul; a soul looking for something but not even knowing what it is they’re looking for. The book speaks to me on so many levels because after years of living a hedonistic lifestyle, I start to realize something was missing. Don’t get me wrong, the hedonistic lifestyle is a lot of fun but once you’re almost 30, the lifestyle does start to feel empty.

Hence, reading on Mizz Nina’s spiritual and religious journey of self-discovery and self-development, makes me feel like I am not alone in searching for something more.

A History of Islam in 21 Women by Hossein Kamaly

a history of islam in 21 women 7 islamic books to read during ramadhan

This book is so good! It sheds light onto the women who helped shape Islam to be what it is today. Not only that, it shows that historical Islamic women were no pushovers, they are strong independent and intelligent women. This book in my opinion should be read by all Muslim women to instill hope in us that if they can be bad ass women, we too can be bad ass!

Plus, reading about the love between Khadijah (ra) and Prophet Muhammad is so romantic.

blessed names and attributes of Allah 7 islamic books to read during ramadhan

In Ramadhan, the most holy of months, we should strive to understand and contemplate the names of Allah and this book helps us with that what with having the original Arabic as well as its translation into English. Because I will be honest with you, I don’t remember all 99 names of Allah so I need to work on that.

Believing Women in Islam: Unreading Patriarchal Interpretations of the Qu’ran by Asma Barlas

believing women in islam 7 islamic books to read during ramadhan

I am a feminist and maybe leaning a tad bit too much to misandry, this is caused by the cultural understanding that Malaysian society has of Islam. This cultural understanding is very patriarchal and when misused causes abuse with religion as its cover. Being part of the abused, I refuse to accept blindly that the religion I love would condone this thus I believe this book will show insight on how Islam is a an egalitarian religion.

Befriending the Qu’ran: A Beginner’s Guide for Nurturing Closeness to the Qu’ran by Ayesha Syahira

befriending the quran 7 islamic books to read during ramadhan

This book is a great start to slowly build your relationship with the Qu’ran. The way I see the Qu’ran is how Shrek describes what an Ogre is to Donkey; like an onion with multiple layers that you need to slowly decipher. Thus, like cutting an onion, there are many ways to avoid burning your eyes and this book is one of many ways to help you on your Qu’ran journey.
