I frequently browse the Publishing category on LaunchGood to see what exciting bookish projects people are working on. I happened upon Pious & Professional about a month ago, and I was intrigued.
It’s a book full of advice for Muslim women on how to maintain their Islam in a professional environment. Organized into eleven chapters that cover topics like “The Ultimate Goal: To Please Allah” and “Prayer Breaks and Holidays,” the text reads like a list of bullet points about each topic with lots of Quran and hadeeth included.

The Muslims is a graphic novel by Ahmad Philips. Printed in full color, this 8.5 x 11 book has five chapters, each of which focuses on one of the two children in the family: Hani and Huda.
The first chapter was pretty funny: I laughed out loud. In it, Hani does badly on a quiz that he forgot about. He learns his lesson and studies really hard next time, only to discover that he studied the wrong subject. View Post
Theresa Corbin and Kaighla Um Dayo have written the book they wish they had when they converted to Islam. Drawing on decades of experience and focusing on practical advice rather than information-dumping, The New Muslim’s Field Guide discusses the major issues a new convert to Islam will have to contend with in a fun and friendly way.
