A collection of short memoirs reflecting lives which are different, unique, Muslim. Do you want to know what it is to hear the voices of a people who haven't been heard, to hear their stories as they want it to to be told? This book has many voices that speak of many lives, each life shares a common enthusiasm to tell their real stories, of pain, of joy, of being different. Some are narrative, some are tongue in cheek, some are painful to read, some are just plain experiences, some even rants. Of being a Muslim. One at a time. Without being defensive, without fear, with hope, with belief.
