We are working on a new documentary.

About a Muslim woman (Me!) who travels to different cities to interact with people who might have never met a Muslim before.

When our first documentary "On A Wing And A Prayer" was released I quickly realized the west needed to see more positive images of Muslims. Especially Muslim women!
While filming "On A Wing And A Prayer", I didn’t think anyone would care about our Muslim family. We’re American, we watch football, eat pizza, we argue about money and worry about our children, just like everyone else. I think we are pretty boring. But apparently no one else did. The overwhelming reaction of the community was so profound. That it got me thinking of doing something that portrayed Muslim women in a positive light. I loved the reaction people got after realizing our family was just like theirs. And why shouldn’t we be!
I am outgoing, friendly and sarcastic and thought it would be a great idea to go out and show the west that I’m a Muslim and an American. My hope in making this film is to show the world being an American Muslim is not an oxymoron.

Faith Walks The Land is about me going across the country into little towns that might never come across a Muslim unless what they see on tv. And we all know that is the farthest thing from the truth about what it is to be a Muslim.
So for those who have come to visit over from CLOVER LANE (thank you by the way) and think you might be interested in this project, email me!
Our first documentary "On A Wing And A Prayer" was featured on PBS with over 2 million viewers. I am really excited about this new adventure. I believe it will be a great way of building tolerance for all.
Peace :)

  1. I came through Clover Lane and just wanted to say that I think you have a lovely blog! What a delight to look through as I start my morning. I am not Muslim (I am LDS, or Mormon) but I have always had a huge respect and love for the Islamic faith, and I agree... Americans need to see a LOT more people like you!

  7. I too found you through Clover Lane. I'm so glad that you found one of my blogs too!
    I think it's wonderful that you are promoting understanding that Islam is a religion of peace. I am LDS myself, but I have had some Muslim friends and students (I taught elementary school) and it is so sad how misunderstood Islam can be. I am glad that you are being so proactive through your blog and documentaries.
    I'm happy I found your blog.

  10. It's back on?! Yay!! So happy for you! (Yet, I cringe at this trailer. This time I noticed how much I was squinting because I need to wear my glasses, ha ha.) I think you have such a gift for opening people's eyes about what your religion truly is, and I don't believe that it was intended for violence. I am thrilled so find you back to blogging! xo

  13. Asalaam-u-Alaikum,
    I'm really intrigued by this, as a Muslim girl who's looking to make the same impression - ironically though - in the Islamic world. I tried finding out how I could get a copy of your documentary to watch here in Dubai (United Arab Emirates), but I'm unable to find the exact way.. Please inform about what's possible. The trailer is INSPIRING btw, MashaAllah.
