We believe that a media company that amplifies 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 have covered a range of topics, issues and celebrated so much from the community. We have voices representing the global sisterhood, from the UK predominantly although over the years we have seen a growth in contributors and the community from the USA, Malaysia, Nigeria, France to Turkey and Kuwait.
Whichever way you express yourself, there are a range of ways to be heard across our Amaliah platforms. You can…
We look forward to seeing your name pop up in our community InshaAllah.

YOU WILL HAVE TO RE-SUBMIT FOLLOWING THESE GUIDELINES.
Subject line: [First name & Article category*]
We accept anonymous contributions, or contributions under a pen name for a number of reasons. We may, in some instances, ask for the contribution to be anonymised due to the duty of care we have towards our writers, particularly for topics or personal essays of a more sensitive nature. In those cases, anonymising a contribution means safeguarding a writer against any direct abuse, threats or negative reactions they may be subjected to.
We may not publish your piece and often it’s because it doesn’t quite fit our editorial tone or it’s really short, it is not a reflection of your work. We would also encourage you to check out and submit your work to a few platforms we love like: Muslim Vibe, gal-dem, Black Ballad, Mvslim, Burnt Roti.
Now the exciting part…What to write?
One thing we love about the Muslim Women who have contributed to Amaliah.com is the variety in stories, topics and experiences . We’ve covered everything from self care from a spiritual perspective and recipes, to guides on how to start investing and travel guides!
We know that your contributions make our community feel loved, seen and heard or introduce them to new ideas and conversations. There may be topics that haven’t been covered and we welcome you to fill the gaps!

(*Depending on the piece. If you’d like to produce a series over a longer period of time, Amaliah can also accommodate this.)
Who are you speaking to?
First, always those who identify as Muslim women.
When writing your contribution remember that the community is global so if you use terms that are relevant to you, you may need to explain them or if your experiences are a reflection of a movement or experience influenced by your geography then include that in the piece.
Remember that the community is mainly from the UK, however, we also have visitors from Australia, Nigeria, Turkey, Malaysia, Canada, USA, France, and other countries – so please keep in mind that our audience is a diverse one with a global outlook.
