feeling Muslim research featured in Project Lina: Bringing Our Whole Selves to Islam


In writing this book, Project Lina, Dr. Tamara Gray and Najiyah Maxfield have drawn an intricate map to lovingly guide Muslim women converts, whether new or veteran, as we traverse this unfamiliar territory, while simultaneously rooting us in the foundations of our religion and strengthening our roots by providing us with the tools we need to take ownership of our Islam, ultimately leading to feeling Muslim.
