Who are we
As part of our podcasts, The Thinking Muslim and A Muslim Mom we have started reading as many books and essays about Liberalism, Feminism, and Islam as an alternative to Liberalism, as we can get our hands-on. There is so much thought-provoking material out there! Alhumdulilah we’ve been discovering so much! We decided to start The Thinking Muslim Book Club, as we want to share what we’re learning and hear your thoughts too.
What we do
This book club is dedicated to exploring issues in some more depth and untangling the complexities of the world around us. The club was created after we began delivering our first course, The Thinking Muslim’s guide to Liberalism, in the UK. As part of the course, we regularly posted accompanying reading material on google classroom. Attendees loved it! So we wanted to extend the book suggestions to a wider audience.
The plan is to select and read a book every month, then discuss the work during the month’s last week (to give everyone time to read it!). The journey to becoming a thinker is exciting! We will post some questions/quotes to get things started, but we would love for this to collectively grow into something amazing. If you’re ready to broaden your thinking, please join up and participate. Everyone is welcome. we would be honoured!
How to join the book club
To join the book club go to Goodreads, make an account, and then put the name, The Thinking Muslim Book Club in the search box, and join, easy.
We will have our first online discussion via zoom on the 29th of March, the book we have been reading is A Return to Modesty by Wendy Shalit.
