Welcome to Islam : A Convert's Tale Paperback
Written by a Muslim convert and mother of three, Welcome to Islam captures the occasionally poignant but often humorous reality of beinga Muslim in the current climate: as a convert, a working woman, amother, and as an active member of the local community.
Discoverwhat its really like living life as a Muslim: praying the ritualprayers at work in an office when your boss walks in; going on Hajjwith hundreds of Saudi women dressed from head to toe in black; orexplaining to your six-year-old daughter, who is looking at thepictures in the newspaper, that the bearded Asian Muslim who is beingarrested for terrorism isnt in fact the family friend we all know andlove - just someone who looks extremely similar.
It is rare topick up a newspaper or watch the television without encountering a'Muslim issue at least once.
Lucy Bushill-Matthews story brings thefaith behind the headlines refreshingly to life.
