Thank you for the article by Asra Q. Nomani titled "A Faith of Their Own" (March 2007).

Thank you for the article by Asra Q. Nomani titled "A Faith of Their Own" (March 2007). I live in Tamil Nadu, India, and was pleased to see how these Muslim women are working for a more inclusive and just Islam. I will be passing this article out to the Muslim young women I have in my religious education classes at Kodaikanal International School as well as including the information in the content of my classes.
