Welcome to Islam
Written by a Muslim convert and mother of three, Welcome to Islam captures the occasionally poignant but often humorous reality of being a Muslim in the current climate: as a convert, a working woman, a mother, and as an active member of the local community. Discover what its really like living life as a Muslim: praying the ritual prayers at work in an office when your boss walks in; going on Hajj with hundreds of Saudi women dressed from head to toe in black; or explaining to your six-year-old daughter, who is looking at the pictures in the newspaper, that the bearded Asian Muslim who is being arrested for terrorism isnt in fact the family friend we all know and love just someone who looks extremely similar. It is rare to pick up a newspaper or watch the television without encountering a Muslim issue at least once. Lucy Bushill-Matthews story brings the faith behind the headlines refreshingly to life.
