Umm Zakiyyah, the well author of American-Muslim novels like “If I Should Speak”, held a book signing on Wednesday, September 19, 2012, at the Islamic Heritage Museum, 2315 Martin Luther King Jr Ave, Washington DC.

Umm Zakiyyah's novels fill a void in the fiction market for authentic voices of the American Muslim experience. Her novels have touched the lives of readers across the world, inspiring non-Muslims to accept Islam, Muslims to renew their faith, and avid readers to enjoy compelling, heart-moving tales.

The book signing precedes the Muslim Fiction Conference which will take place in Atlanta, Georgia on Oct 6, 2012 10:00 am - 2:00 pm (Saturday) at the Emory Conference Center Hotel. An exclusive Author's Reception for women and students with Emory alumna and internationally acclaimed author Umm Zakiyyah will follow.

The Muslim Link will publish an interview with Umm Zakiyyah in our October issue, inshaAllah.

The Islamic Society of Baltimore is very fortunate mashallah to welcome Hafiz Hammad Hai to our teaching staff this year. Hammad will be teaching Senior Boys, and we hope that he will be able to pass his love and passion of the Qu'ran to our oldest students. Hammad completed his hifz education at ISB and thereafter completed the Al Bayyinah Arabic language program in Irving, Texas. This past Ramadan, Hammad held a class at ISB in which he offered a flowing translation and discussion of some themes in the Qur'an.

Also this year, Al Rahmah Sunday School is very blessed to announce a class specially designed for young Muslims who are hearing impaired. Pairing up with teachers trained in disability education, Al Rahmah Sunday school administrators recognized that we have many hearing impaired youth in our community. As a result, this year, Al Rahmah Sunday School is launching this new program, and we invite any hearing impaired students and their families to contact the administration about taking advantage of this special and unique opportunity.

mohammed-musabbir-with-mytravelbuddy Traveling last year, Maryland realtor Mohammad Musabbir experienced what many travelers go through – he forgot his tooth brush. As the saying goes, necessity is the mother of invention. So, Musabbir invented.

“I told myself there is a better way to organize [these travel hygiene needs] and I went to every big store to find something that will make anyone’s travel easy and convenient but I couldn’t find anything,” he told the Muslim Link. What he came up with is a container that looks like a thermos, but holds four liquid dispensers in its main compartment for things like shampoo, lotion, and liquid soap; two tooth brushes in a middle space, and items like floss and nail clippers go in a bottom, screw off compartment.

His invention is called “My Travel Buddy”.

“My Travel Buddy is a perfect kit for a traveler for long trips, camping, cruising, Hajj trip or just even taking it on the road trip. It is a ready to go wherever and whenever you go without any hassle. Having all your toiletries in one place makes it easy to get up and go, and helps prevent loss,” explained Musabbir.

After six months of development, “My Travel Buddy” has a patent pending as well as a final prototype. Musabbir is making sure the product meets Transportation and Security Authority requirements and designed it with see through windows so the liquid levels are visible. The product is elegantly designed with high quality plastic, is light weight, and waterproof.

Musabbir expects the product to retail at $10-$12. He is currently seeking investors to bring the product to market. Contact him at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
