The Misadventures of a Muslim Woman, by the creator of the television series, Little Mosque on the Prairie.

 

Being a practicing Muslim in the West is sometimes challenging, sometimes rewarding and sometimes downright absurd. How do you explain why Eid never falls on the same date each year; why it is that Halal butchers also sell teapots and alarm clocks; how do you make clear to the plumber that it's essential the toilet is installed within sitting-arm's reach of the tap? 

 

Zarqa Nawaz has seen and done it all, and has lived to tell the tale in this humorous and insightful book.
