Umm Zakiyyah

Tags : Author

Umm Zakiyyah is the bestselling author of If I Should Speak, His Other Wife, and Muslim Girl and of the internationally acclaimed blogs and short stories at uzauthor.com. She writes about the interfaith struggles of Muslims and Christians and the intercultural, spiritual, and moral struggles of Muslims in America. Her work has earned praise from writers, professors, and filmmakers and has been translated into multiple languages.

Dr. Robert D. Crane, advisor to former US President Nixon, said of Umm Zakiyyah, “…no amount of training can bring a person without superb, natural talent to captivate the reader as she does and exert a permanent intellectual and emotional impact.”

Professor K. Bryant of Howard University said of If I Should Speak, “The novel belongs to…a genre worthy of scholarly study.”

Currently, her novel His Other Wife is being made into a short film.
