In a world where we are faced with so many conflicting ideas about womanhood, Redefining Womanhood explores what it means to be a Muslim woman in the modern world, and how to strike a balance between often overwhelming roles and responsibilities.
Drawing upon examples of women from Islamic history, Anse Tamara offers a comprehensive and practical definition of womanhood that will not only clarify, but inspire the Muslim woman to achieve her full potential and become successful in both this life and the next.
Ustadha Tamara L. Gray, born 1966 in Minneapolis Minnesota, became a Muslim when she was eighteen. At nineteen she married a Syrian-American student and over the next eight years, she completed her BA in political science and a Masters in Education, had two daughters and visited Damascus where she yearned to seek formal Islamic knowledge.
When the family moved to Syria she studied the Prophet's sira with the professor whose book she would later help translate and studied the Islamic subjects of hadith, tafsir, fiqh, aqidah and others as well as receiving an ijazah (certificate) in Qur'an and tajwid. The seventeen years she has spent in Syria have witnessed the birth of her son, acquisition of fluency in Arabic, several full-time jobs in international and renowned private schools, the co-authoring of English ESL programs, running many teacher training workshops, but most importantly her work in dawah.
Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to meet and learn from a Muslim woman who has influenced the lives of so many young women!
