In 2001 she began working for the Citizens Advice Bureau as a trainee advice worker, before becoming fully qualified in 2005. The goal of this book is to dispel misinterpretations of Islam woven into South Asian culture, so that readers can distinguish between Islamic principles derived from the Quran and hadiths and the cultural practices that violate these principles. The objective is to bring about an awareness of Islamic rights with a special emphasis on the rights of Muslim women, so that much of the oppression they face may be eradicated, and they may feel confident and strong in their Muslim identity.
