Native-born American Muslims

Creating an Islamic-American Culture

NbA Muslims Writers

Screenshot_2016-01-23-04-53-41_1_burnedSince the launch of the NbA Muslims website, there have been some dramatic changes.  NbA Muslims has evolved from a component to my master’s thesis into a space to highlight the experiences of native-born American Muslims of African, European, and Latino descent and the works of fiction produced by the authors of the vibrant and diverse NbA Muslim culture.

I am thrilled that NbA Muslims is budding into a socio-cultural platform for some unique aspects of the American Muslim experience. While the primary focus of NbA Muslims will remain native-born American Muslims according to the project’s original definition of such (African-American, Euro-American, Latino-American, and Native-American), there are opportunities for the exceptional works of non-NbA Muslims to be featured on occasion.  For example, author Papatia Feauxzar’s work is a unique and dynamic contribution to the American Muslim fiction literary canon, and it is a pleasure to feature her as an NbA Muslims author.

I pray to Allah that NbA Muslims can continue to be a platform for members of  distinctive American heritages as well as the American Muslim experience.

    As-salamu Alaykum,
    I am enjoying your site! I’d suggest adding Sr. Jamilah Koloctronis (who sadly passed away in 2013, may Allah SWT bless her) and Sr. Linda (Widad) Delgado, who has also written under the pen name L.D. Alan. Both have made significant contributions to American Muslim literature.

      Jazakallah! Unfortunately, I was unable to find books by or contact information for Linda (Widad) Delgado.
