I recently met up with Malaysian Author, Noorshin NG Abdullah in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia while on vacation for a signed copy of her book ‘The Beauty of Covering Up.’

In the Prologue of the book she says, “this book is a humble means of sharing my thoughts and ideas on the beauty of Muslimah covering ourselves not only with garments that conceal our aurah but also with beautiful manners and character that become our cloak if humility as Muslims [and] I hope this book can generate more awareness on the importance, virtue and spiritual obligation of behaving, thinking and acting modestly as a way of life of a Muslim…

Muslimah covering ourselves not only with garments that conceal our aurah but also with beautiful manners and character that become our cloak if humility as Muslims [and] I hope this book can generate more awareness on the importance, virtue and spiritual obligation of behaving, thinking and acting modestly as a way of life of a Muslim…”

The book was also written with Muslimah reverts/converts in mind. Hence, its simplicity.

 

First Impressions

I was impressed with the quality of the book and how it was presented. The book comes with a sturdy and cute pink bag. Hard- cover with glossy pages, very colourful illustrations and each chapter is represented by a different colour, giving it a very feminine, girlie and young feel. Very simple, short and easy to read chapters. And with a quick browse, one notices quotes from the Holy Qur’an, hadith and personal stories shared by Muslim women.

I love the title of some of the Chapters like ‘You Are Beautiful! ‘ and ‘Beauty from Within.’ Then the final chapter shows several design illustrations with instructions and ideas as to how hijab can be worn.

Thank you so much for signing my copy sister Noorshin and it was a pleasure to finally meet you.
