I always talk about Islamic-fiction… or try to, anyway, since it’s something verrryyyy important to me – and despite this, I fully understand that the majority of my readers may be completely inexperienced with the type of Islamic-fiction that I love and want more of, instead of the more mainstream books termed as being “Islamic-fiction” when actually there couldn’t be a bigger contradiction. However, I also realise that not everyone can afford to broaden their horizons when it comes to purchasing books, so I thought offering online options would give people more of an opportunity to explore – and I just generally have some amazing Islamic-fiction recommendations that just so happen to be online (since I’d be fully prepared to pay for this stuff too tbh)!!!
This blog has been going on since May 2016, and every post is a part of a big story – currently at Part 276! I discovered this blog last summer and was hooked from Part 1.
I binge-read until the current post as I immediately forged a connection with Faz (the main character), a young Muslimah from South Africa, and the whole experience of watching her grow up, get her education, get married and everything was absolutely beautiful and wonderful to take part in! The author does an absolutely amazing job in integrating Islamic principles and Faz is portrayed in such a realistic way that makes someone like me very happy.
I believe we’re currently on the last “season” and I am both terrified and excited to see what the author has in store!!
I have also been following this sister for an equally long time, and can I just say – I am completely obsessed with her work!! Mashallah, she’s done such a brilliant job in – well, everything – I genuinely don’t even know where to start.
First of all, everything is brilliantly written, from every word to every sentence to every paragraph to every post. It is obvious that the writer puts a lot of effort into her writing and this is something I think all readers can appreciate. Also, it’s SCIENCE Islamic-fiction! How cool is that!!! The stories and the world-building are so meticulously and skilfully crafted that it’s impossible not to be filled with admiration but also simultaneously have a really good time reading them.
I would especially highly recommend this to readers who aren’t Muslim!
So these are my top 2 recommendations! I hope you all enjoy checking these out because I love reading the stories from both of these sites so much. Also, if anyone has some recommendations for other sites, please let me know because I’m always eager to expand my Islamic-fiction reading and read more amazing work from my fellow Muslim sisters and brothers!
