About this deal

Big Little Steps is all about love for Islam from Muslimahs in all walks of life, and the feeling of belonging to the ummah, regardless of the level of faith one has. There are a few things I do slightly disagree with (I am not the biggest fan of PETA but see why she used them as a source).

I had concerns with certain concepts and issues related to the religious aspect in the book, which I have written about in my blog https://ummafrazblog. Loujayne was brought up in the South of France and Oman, before moving to Dubai, where she has lived for the past 12 years. This rendezvous strengthens our relationship with God, deepens our spirituality and holds many rewards. She also shares “10 groundbreaking sharia laws that improved women’s status after the rise of Islam”, and another section features excerpts written by modern-day Muslim women, including a motivational speaker, Miss Universe contestant, artist and fashion designer. This chapter also has stories of modern-day Muslim women from across the globe – all having Islam as the binding factor.Beautiful light pink cover, hand paint pictures and every page has margin to take your notes while reading😍, all these unconventional way make this book more interesting. The author has sectioned the book into five parts – Faith, A Way of Life, Womankind, Prayer, and Togetherness. In this portion author mentioned reason of writing this book is to communicate with like minded women.

Through Mathilde Loujayne's personal experiences - grief, high school, moving abroad, work, marriage, and motherhood - she addresses women's common concerns as they take the big, little steps towards finding a balanced lifestyle and a glowing heart in Islam.

I remember going into the sister hall and sitting with the other teenage girls as they recited the Quran. We will not accept any product(s) not purchased directly from Tajoora, and such product(s) will be discarded.

This would, insha Allah, bring up their spirituality, and with Allah’s Guidance they would be guided aright.

A Way of Life depicts how simple acts such as eating, fasting, praying, self-care, and animal welfare is not only mundane living, but also a way of life according to Islam which can be turned into acts of worship. Since her conversion to Islam in 2002 Mathilde Loujayne has crossed paths with women from all walks of life on a common spiritual journey to discover Islam from a feminine perspective. The wide margin on all the pages gives the reader enough space to note down her thoughts, insights, and any other points that needs to be written. To hear her personal experience really made me feel less alone in my journey and that I am not the only one who is facing hardships. When you are absolutely clueless about Islam, or you only know about what the media wants you to know (which isn't good.

Reading this book gives me the insights into the reverts’ life and their experiences which I will never experience as a born Muslim. Readers are kept engaged with quirky watercolour illustrations, such as of constellations when describing the history of the Quran, and of a woman praying.you learn something new every single day and it can feel very lonely or like you are not doing enough. I personally think, this book is suitable for non Muslims, to learn and Muslims to relearn about Islam. My entire journey has been filled with hardships but one thing that did not change was my devotion and faith in Allah.
