Muslim Women Book Club

Welcome into our virtual House of Wisdom created by and for WISE women and all lovers of knowledge!

Inspired by the Darul Hikmah, the largest collection of books in Baghad’s physical House of Wisdom in 1004. Step inside and relax on your virtual cushion sitting on a virtual rug, and feast your heart and mind. We have curated books by Muslim women authors in all genres and sub-genres, and invite you to enjoy and contribute to this living web of wisdom. We sincerely hope that our humble efforts will continue to grow and enrich each and everyone of us.
