Sukun: A project for Islamic reform.
“Sukun” means “peace” in my native language of Urdu. For updates on our efforts, please join me on social media @AsraNomani

“An engrossing overview of Islam’s internal debates...” – The Washington Post

“Through memorable personal narrative, Nomani gently instructs readers about Islam and her role as a woman in it.” – Publishers Weekly

“...the ideal introduction to contemporary Islam....A stirring account of her journey to Mecca on the hajj...Her tale is made doubly illuminating by her courage in making the journey as a single mother alongside her infant son, and by the fact that in the course of her journey she rediscovers the formidable roots of Islamic feminism.” – Chicago Tribune

“Nomani’s riveting, cogent, and inspiring account urges the moderate majority in all faiths to rescue their traditions from those who twist religion into a weapon of mass oppression and terror.” – Booklist

“Her Rosa Parks-style activism has won change...” – The New York Times

“Without being insulting, Nomani confronts her faith with issues of sex, sin and female sexuality. In the process, she emerges as a powerful voice for change in the Muslim world.” – Outlook Magazine (New Delhi, India)
