Season 2 | Episode 6
Helping families to understand and celebrate Muslim culture and Islamic faith
Amal Abou-Eid - Author
I’m delighted to introduce you to Amal Abou-Eid. Author of My Muslim Mate - a children’s book that helps kids see that through talking and learning about each other's cultures, friendships can flourish and lives can work together harmoniously.
Amal is a community leader that decided to take her love for teaching and learning and step up to help Muslim kids feel safe, understood and celebrated. This is the first of what I can imagine will be many more resources that allow Muslim children to feel proud of their culture and see it represented in literature in a positive way.
Amal is on a mission to educate families about Islamic faith and to embrace and celebrate Muslim culture.
In this episode, Amal shares:
What inspired her to write a purpose-driven children's book.
Misconceptions about Islam faith and Muslim culture.
Conversation starters for families to speak about Muslim culture and people in a positive way.
Post-natal anxiety and motherhood.
