"In Islam, my quest for absolute values was satisfied. In Islam I found all that was true, good and beautiful and that which gives meaning and direction to human life (and death); while in other religions, the Truth is deformed, distorted, restricted and fragmentary. If any one chooses to ask me how I came to know this, I can only reply my personal life experience was sufficient to convince me. My adherence to the Islamic faith is thus a calm, cool but very intense conviction. I have, I believe, always been a Muslim at heart by temperament, even before I knew there was such a thing as Islam. My conversion was mainly a formality, involving no radical change in my heart at all but rather only making official what I had been thinking and yearning for many years."

Besides the 3 books already posted, is there anyweher online we can get the rest of these articles/books?

These writings need to be more publicised, becasue what she was writing and warning against back then has only become more proliferated now due to our own weaknesses.

The rest you will just have to google the Titles on the list of writings I posted on the previous page. individually.


Unfortunately her name is not as well known as it was a few decades ago. Had she lived she would have been 83 years old, so with passage of time people tend to forget.

Just before she passed away,some American woman wrote a best selling Book about Maryam Jameelah labelling her an extremist.

The English language Pakistani Journalists out of their usual inferiority complex , joined in labelling her an Extremist her subsequent death barley got a mention in the Media.

I went to Islamic Shop some of her books were available, but looked like they had been on display so long that the colour on the covers was wearing away.

In other countries an equivalent writer would have been lauded and received a state funeral.

May Allah accept and grant her the highest of Maqams in Al firdaus ameen.

Bismillah.

For a number of years in my 20's and early 30's it was a practice of mine to read the small book. Called correspondence between Maulana Maudoodi and Maryam Jameelah.

Every Ramadhan it would give me a boost just knowing how Allah guides the hearts and specifically guided the heart of Maryam Jameelah.

Allah instilled in her heart a zeal whilst she was still a teenager and was known as Margaret Marcus to wage a writing campaign to defend the religion with her pen.

I humbly request people to make Dua for her maghfirah in this blessed month.
