We believe that a media company that centres the voices of Muslim women is a powerful tool for cultural change. Our work has been featured in Forbes, The Telegraph, CNN and The Guardian to name a few.

We can only do this with your support. We have 7 categories, Identity, Relationships, Soul, Fashion, World, Beauty & Makeup and Lifestyle, you can write about everything from commentary on world events and telling us about fave beauty products to relationship advice and what to do on a Friday night. We all have different opinions, fashion taste and stories to share, and so, we’d like to invite you as a contributor to Amaliah to share your story and perspectives.

Whether you would like to submit a one-off opinion piece on a trending topic – Amaliah is here to amplify your voice as a Muslim woman.
