Mom, I'm a Muslim.

Ever wondered what it feels like to be a guy that converts to Islam? I always do. I always assume they have it made. They can blend in without anyone knowing they've converted. At the mosque every guy loves the token white guy and men are so much less judgmental than women anyways. But what about what their families and friends think? I never really knew. This book will give you the perspective that you may have known or not. I was surprised myself. I found this book a little boring at the beginning but if you can get through that you will find a very important, touching, powerful story. I think men could relate to it even better but every convert will be able to relate. Overall its a book of hope in these times of despair.


  1. This was the January book club pick. Hopefully some of you have read it by now. Let me know or even if you plan to.

  2. It sounds really great. I would love to read it, but I may have to wait until I have the extra $ inshaAllah.

  3. Insha Allah you can find it at your library or through inter-library loan. Otherwise I hope Allah provides you with rizq.

    Karima let us know if you read it.
