‘Big Little Steps’ – A woman’s guide to finding a balanced lifestyle and a glowing heart in Islam
“Big Little Steps” is the perfect read during the Holy Month. French-born convert to Islam, Mathilde Loujayne, offers readers the chance to examine the beauty of the religion while breaking pre-conceived notions of Muslim women in a positive, constructive style.
“Big Little Steps” was born after Mathilde looked for the right words to explain to her mother why she chose to embrace Islam. Through Mathilde’s personal experiences – grief, high school, moving abroad (from France to Oman and the UAE) 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.
Aimed at born Muslim and Muslim converts, Big Little Steps breaks down Islamic principles in a simple, inviting way, with the aim of making Islam more approachable to non-Muslims and those interested in learning more about Islam from a religious and cultural perspective.
Featuring well-known Muslim women such as Halima Aden and Ghizlan Guenez the title, published by Dubai-based The Dreamwork Collective, offers a fresh, feminist perspective suitable for anyone with a desire to learn more about modern machinations of Islam.
