In Arabic, the word "Amilah" translates into the act of being hopeful. In dark times, we find ease in giving up, and giving into our own gloom and despair. Even through these dark times, we find glimmers of hope. These glimmers are what inspired Halima to write Amilah."Amilah" is a book of fictional short stories that explores difficult situations in the lives of various Somali Americans. From a young woman combating the negative stigma of having depression in her family, to a young man faced with the echoes of an ugly past. In Amilah, characters are faced with either succumbing to defeat or seeking hope. "Amilah" is a look into how hope can play an important role in the lives of the dejected and ever despairing.

We wait for the moon. We watch for the moon. We watch for the Ramadan moon. We give to the poor, and read Qur’an, under the moon. We live our faith, until next year under the moon, under the moon, under the Ramadan moon. Ramadan is one of the most special months of the Islamic year, when Muslims pray, fast, and help those in need. Sylvia Whitman’s lyrical story, with luminous illustrations by Sue Williams, serves as an introduction to Ramadan—a time for reflection and ritual with family and friends. A detailed note about Ramadan is included. The author lives in Virginia and wrote this story so her son’s classmates could learn how he and his family celebrate this important time. The illustrator lives in England.

A Mosque In Munich

In the wake of the news that the 9/11 hijackers had lived in Europe, journalist Ian Johnson wondered how such a radical group could sink roots into Western soil. Most accounts reached back twenty years, to U.S. support of Islamist fighters in Afghanistan. But Johnson dug deeper, to the start of the Cold War, uncovering the untold story of a group of ex-Soviet Muslims who had defected to Germany during World War II. There, they had been fashioned into a well-oiled anti-Soviet propaganda machine. As that war ended and the Cold War began, West German and U.S. intelligence agents vied for control of this influential group, and at the center of the covert tug of war was a quiet mosque in Munich—radical Islam’s first beachhead in the West. Culled from an array of sources, including newly declassified documents, A Mosque in Munich interweaves the stories of several key players: a Nazi scholar turned postwar spymaster; key Muslim leaders across the globe, including members of the Muslim Brotherhood; and naïve CIA men eager to fight communism with a new weapon, Islam. A rare ground-level look at Cold War spying and a revelatory account of the West’s first, disastrous encounter with radical Islam, A Mosque in Munich is as captivating as it is crucial to our understanding the mistakes we are still making in our relationship with Islamists today
