Happy New You Issue
Happy New You! It may only be November, but for us Muslims, the dawn of another Islamic year emerged in the middle of this month, marking our 1434th birthday.
In this issue, we are excited about China. Asmaa Shariff, for one, is blown away by the Contrasts of China that allow her to witness the spirituality of Eid ul-Adha at the oldest mosque in Beijing and indulge in the modernity of megacity Shanghai. Moving to central China, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to see a certain progressiveness that exists in only a small handful of places in the world: Women-Only Mosques.
Fabulous Muslimah: Mariah Mah has set her heart on China, too – for almost two decades now. Maryam Yusof shares with us what the award-winning humanitarian from Singapore continues to do to improve the lives of poor Muslims there, especially in helping them to get an education.
