  1. As-salamu Alaykum,

    Dear Mrs. Hassan,

    Thank you for your question. Anyone can write a book and submit it to a publisher for consideration…but in most places, you would have to be an adult in order to sign a contract, and I don’t really know how that might work with the publishers listed above. I think you would have to consult each one individually to see if they are open to working with young writers, whether it is possible for a parent to sign the contract, etc.

    One thing I do know for sure is that teen authors do exist and have their work published. Some young people spend time building up a following on sites like Wattpad and then seek publication when they become adults. Others self-publish their work or create e-books.

    An easier path to publication may be magazines and websites. Many publications, including Islamic ones like those listed on this page of the Muslim Writers Club website, welcome contributions from young writers.

    If interested, you may wish to take a look at Muslim Matters and Islamic Voice, both of which are known to publish the work of young people.

    Other (non-Islamic) publications that accept the work of children include Stone Soup.

    One of these days, Insha’Allah, I will gather more information on this topic and create a special page or section for young Muslim writers. It is very important to me that young writers in the Muslim community have a place to turn to for information and advice.

    If you provide more details about your situation, I will also try to find you resources tailored to your specific circumstances.

    And if anyone has anything to add, please do!

  2. Dear Brother, Assalamoelaikum

    I have published three books on Islam, which I think are very useful to young adults. two of them has been published by amana Publications and the third by CreateSpace, an Amazon co. My fourth book entitled, ‘ Divine Way to Perfect Humanity: an Islamic Perspective, is near completion. I am looking for a publisher and marketer of Islamic books who might be interested in my book. I will very much appreciate your help and guidance in this effort.

    Thanks,

    Dr. M A Hafeez

  3. As-salamu Alaykum, Dr. Hafeez,

    Thank you for your comment, which I have edited to remove your phone number and the excerpt of your book you provided. If you would like to share an excerpt of your book with readers, please do so on this page of the website.

    For those who are interested, I was able to find your books on-line as follows:

    Since you have already been through the process of publication, you know that there is some work involved. Finding a suitable publisher definitely takes time and effort, and one of the things we are trying to do on this website is provide writers with the resources needed to start their search. Have you approached any of the publishers on the above list? The fact that you have been published with Amana Publications should be a plus for you.

    Marketing is a different story as many Islamic publishers don’t do much, if any, marketing for their writers. I would suggest that you start a website if you don’t already have one. Then blog about topics of interest to your target audience and share your posts on social media. Taking these steps now may actually help you find a publisher, because publishers generally prefer authors who have a platform for their work and are actively promoting their books.

    I know that this does not fully answer your question – but I hope it helps a bit as you develop a publication strategy for your fourth book.
