Syeda Atika Yahya
A phrase which I heard when I was a third grader and it remained stuck in my mind ever since. A comparison between two contrasting entities. As I grew older, I understood it in its complete form.
You might topple mighty empires with your sword, but you need a pen to rule them. No doubt the first verse of the Quran is ‘Iqra‘ and what an irony, the literacy rate among the Muslims of the sub-continent is pitiful and more so that of women.
I believe and I hope that I can use my pen as a way to remove various social issues that we as Muslim women deal in our day to day life. This blog, is meant to educate, the women of my community, inform them of their true status Islam provides them and inspire them to be the best, whatever they are good at.
