Sister Na’ima of SISTERS asked me to inform you about the magazine’s latest blogging initiative, open to both brothers and sisters. The deadline for submission is close, so get writing quick!
Asalaamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu!
Greetings from me, Na’ima B. Robert, and the rest of the team at SISTERS, the magazine for Muslim women.
I am writing to tell you about a very exciting development over at the new SISTERS website.
Every fortnight, we will be featuring an article from a blogger from out there in the blogosphere on a set of topics set by the SISTERS team. The chosen blog entries will be featured on the website, linked from our homepage, in our forum and receive a complimentary pdf of the latest issue.
But now we need your submissions!
So, to kick-start this new feature, we are asking you to ruminate and reflect on the following statements, each inspired by an article in the latest issue of SISTERS:
“Are we taught to be ashamed of our womanhood?”
“Cross-cultural marriages are more trouble than they are worth”
“Marriage in Islam is about duty, not love and romance”
Agree? Disagree? Get writing!
Submissions should be original, up to 600 words and in keeping with ISlamic guidelines. Other than that, feel free to air your views and, hopefully, get some healthy, enlightening debate going on our website.
I look forward to reading your entries. Deadline for submissions is 4th of July.
Na’ima B. Robert
PS. Please forward this to other bloggers you know or publicise it on your blogging community websites! Submissions are open to brothers and sisters.
