Love in a Headscarf

As Muslim women we have a hard time finding romance novels that are appropriate and enjoyable. There aren't many authors out there that write about their love life and how they found the 'One'. Shelina Zahra Janmohamed is not afraid to do so, as she reveals everything starting from the beginning. This memoir guides us through her experiences in finding a suitable partner, the Islamic way.This is an enjoyable novel, and we would definitely recommend this book.  

‘At the age of thirteen, I knew that I was destined to marry John Travolta. One day he would arrive on my North London doorstep, fall madly in love with me and ask me to marry him. Then he would convert to Islam and become a devoted Muslim.’
Shelina is keeping a very surprising secret under her headscarf – she wants to fall in love and find her faith. Torn between the Buxom Aunties, romantic comedies and mosque Imams, she decides to follow the arranged-marriage route to finding Mr Right, Muslim-style. Shelina’s captivating journey begins as a search for the one, but along the way she also discovers herself and her faith. A memoir with a hilarious twist from one of Britain’s leading female Muslim writers. Love in a Headscarf is an entertaining, fresh and unmissable insight into what it means to be a young British Muslim woman.
