American Muslim Women, Still Relevant Ten Years Later

Alhamdulillah, I was quite pleased and grateful to discover these 2018 amazon reviews of my first book, American Muslim Women: Negotiating Race, Gender and Class Within the Ummah.

Dr. Jamillah Karim speaks truth to power! This brilliant book has become a cornerstone of my library and played an immense role in my return to academia as it sheds light on the lived experiences of Muslim women in America. By focusing on Muslim women within in their religious spheres along with the imbrication of race, gender, class and age--Dr. Karim delivers a richly textured account of and on American Women as they negotiate so many facets of their identity.

By fully, confronting the intra-Muslims racism of American Islam, Dr. Karim has created an opening for a new genera of study and long overdue discussion on this very real issue.

This book is perfectly suited for the non-academic as well as those within. Her brilliant methodologies foster an accessible reading.

Above all, Dr. Karim sheds light on the eloquent and nuanced dance of identity negotiation(s) that all Muslim women must perform in the richly diverse context of America. One of my all time favorite books!

Ground-breaking study on gender and interminority relationships. A bold move away from studies that give a "portrait" of one particular ethnic minority. Also brings an important class analysis. A must read for religious studies, American and ethnic studies and the study of Islam more generally.
