The book, ‘Trying to be Muslim – Back to Basics’ is a continuation of a real account of the journey of a Muslim woman who realised that she was not a Muslim in the true sense of the world. She set out to re-learn about her chosen religion. She examined the fundamental tenets of Islam and tried to make sense of it, in her own unique way. This book highlights issues that are considered ‘taboo’ by many Muslims. This book also offers a different and refreshing explanation of the religion through the eyes of a common person.
