Since her conversion to Islam at the age of eighteen, Mathilde Loujayne has crossed paths with women from all walks of life on a common spiritual journey: to discover Islam from a feminine perspective. Fueled by the desire to find the right words to explain to her mother why she chose to embrace Islam, this guide was born.
Through Mathilde’s personal experiences – grief, high school, moving abroad, work, marriage and motherhood – she addresses women’s common concerns as they take the big, little steps towards finding a balanced lifestyle and a glowing heart in Islam.
Mathilde has worked in PR for twelve years and grew up in the Sultanate of Oman, a long way from home – the south of France. Since embracing Islam in 2002, her hope is to highlight the beauty of Islam to the world and break pre-conceived notions of Muslim women in a positive and constructive manner.
