Top Writing Tips by Muslim Authors #04


This week’s author feature is by sister Latifah Bint Mohammed. Latifah is the author of several children’s books and describes her journey to writing as follows:

‘Becoming an author definitely wasn’t on the cards for me. As I grew up I aspired to be different things; first a sweet shop keeper (I never really understood why people laughed when I told them this), then it evolved to becoming an accountant, a business woman and then a Maths teacher, which alhamdulillah I did become.

Sunnah RecipeI was always a writer, I just didn’t know. I’ve always been writing poems since I was a teen, back then it was a coping mechanism for all the whirlwind emotions that I would feel day to day. It was only after I became a mother did I start taking a keen interest into what was out there for young mini Muslims. Every night I would read to my baby of a couple months and ideas would just come surging into my mind, rhythmic, fun, colourful ones! The stuff that children’s books are made of!

My husband inspired me to write…. But it was actually two years later when baby number two came along did I finally take the plunge into this wonderful world. Even then I needed some coaxing by my wonderful sister who was my cheerleader, alhamdulillah! (and her husband. I just picture him sulking if I don’t mention him here).’

When we asked what tips she had for budding writers and her top 3 tips, this was her response:

When I Grow Up‘How can I become a writer? ‘ I hear you say?

Well anyone and everyone is a writer in their own right. Everyone should have a vision for themselves, a goal that they can work towards and push themselves towards and that too with tons and tons of dua for Allah to pave a way for you, in sha Allah.

If I had to simplify and pinpoint three ways to become a writer, they would be:

1) Read lots and see what is already out there.

2) Find your inspiration and your own style

3) Keep sharing your work with people who can give you honest feedback and then keep refining.

I’ve only just started my journey as an author and I am loving every moment of it. Alhamdulillah. :)’
