Original essays, short stories or poetry, rooted in lived experiences of Muslim Women; stories about people’s lives and relationships affected by the pandemic, and its resultant lockdown and travel ban.
The COVID-19 pandemic is undoubtedly one of the most significant historical events of our lifetime and, if mankind survives long enough, the events of our times will be studied and mined for history. The lived experiences of those of us living today would form the bases of those explorations.
Every human being living through this event has a story to tell, of their experiences and how this event has shaped their individual lives. As Muslims, the impact on our faith, and vice versa, of living through these times cannot be trivialized. As Muslim women, we consider it important that our stories—experiences, struggles and triumphs—centering this pandemic be documented for prosperity.
