Show Up: A Motivational Message for Muslim Women is based on the lessons Na’ima learnt on her journey, inviting the reader to show up, authentically and sincerely, in their lives, casting aside the role of victim and instead, living as the hero of their own life story. The book is replete with personal stories, quotes from Qur’an, hadith and contemporary thinkers like Seth Godin, Brené Brown and others, as well as action points and space for the reader to reflect and apply the principles.
