Quote :
I took the synopsis from Simply Islam

Synopsis * Can a Muslim woman have a role beyond the domestic realm? For a variety of reasons, ranging from the financial to the intellectual, many Muslim women choose to work in fields that take them beyond the domestic realm, in many cases enhancing their roles in the home with their families. Beyond the Kitchen draws upon the real-life experiences of working Muslim women and discusses their challenges, from juggling domestice chores, family commitments and workplace demands to dealing with challenges such as wearing hijab in the workplace and deciding whether or not to attend the office Christmas party. Muslim women and girls who want to explore the world of work will find a wealth of ideas in this book. Praise for Beyond the Kitchen: "An Outstanding book....Huda Khattab brings us together as a community of women, struggling with all these issues...[and] offers us an insight into the lives of many Muslim women, giving voice to their struggles, challenges and achievements." From the forward by Katherine Bullock, author of Rethinking Muslim Women and the Veil. Huda Khattab is a British-born Canadian Muslim writer. She is the author of The Muslim Woman's Handbook, Bent Rib and Stories from the Muslim World. Born into a Christian family of Scottish/English origin, she has been a Muslim since 1983. Huda Khattab lives with her husband and children near Toronto, Canada.

priced at £7.99, you can find/order it in any good muslim bookshop.

''I have travelled the world without leaving home.
I did not study psychology, yet, I know people.
Even on solitary days, I have never felt alone
and I always find a solution to my trouble
Just by opening a book. A book is a friend
and this kind of friendship knows no end.''
