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.

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!

Whatever your contribution we would like to invite you as a contributor to Amaliah to share your voice through words or pictures. Whether you would like to submit a one-off opinion piece on a trending topic – Amaliah is here to amplify voices of Muslim women.

We have a range of formats that we accept:

Word Limit: 1000-2000 words*

(*Depending on the piece. If you’d like to produce a series over a longer period of time, Amaliah can also accommodate this.)

Here are some ideas for each category:

  • Identity – What makes you, you? Share a story of your journey to becoming the woman that you are today, or striving to become! Or is there a specific conversation that needs to be had in relation to your identity that you would like to explore?
  • Relationships – From romantic relationships to relationships with our parents, the relationship we have with ourselves, Allah, and even our past or future – got a story to tell?
  • Soul – A focus on the spiritual side of things – tips, advice, experiences, and pieces to nourish and boost our eman. Has anything boosted your eman or comforted your heart? Got an experience to share? We’d love to hear from you!
  • Lifestyle – Content inspired by your interests and daily activities. Inspire, guide and motivate others! Think travel, recipes, hobbies, crafting and reading.
  • World – From current affairs to stories across the globe and trending topics – if you have a take on something happening in the world, this vertical is for you.

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.
