Dear Readers: Sumaiya Tufail’s newly-published visual poetry book has something important to say about God, heartbreak, and activism. Find out why she wrote it below.

As always, please show your support to Muslim writers by reading their books and telling others about the ones you like.

NAME OF BOOK:

Sumi Speaks

AUTHOR NAME:

Sumaiya Tufail

WHAT THE BOOK IS ABOUT:

Sumi Speaks is a visual poetry book written by a young Canadian Muslim woman in which she expresses her journey through poetry and photography in an era of stigma, self-hate, islamophobia, consumerism, 3rd wave feminism, and naturalism. The book is split into three parts. Each part touches on a phase of life every young adult goes through: existential crisis, heartbreak, and self-discovery.

WHY I WROTE IT:

I wrote this book for multiple reasons. The first in hopes that it will be a means to guide people to reflect on God and the meanings of life. The second to connect with others through poetry about God, heartbreak and activism. And lastly to publicize the normal Muslim women’s narrative in this age.

WHERE TO BUY IT:

It’s available through Amazon as an e-book or paperback!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

I am a Canadian poet, writer and Islamic theology student. I started writing and performing spoken word poetry when I was 16 and stopped for a couple of years. I began again while I was doing Islamic studies in the US inspired by our faith. Art has always been a way to cope with life for me and a way to  connect, impact and inspire others at the same time . I recently accomplished one of my life goals and self-published my first book! I always say I believe this is the age where the Muslim woman writes her own narrative and the age where the masses support and love on that narrative.
