"Unicorns" is actually the greyed suggestion Patreon uses for creating tiers, but I enjoy the subtle reference to my disciple, Misha. You'll have an early view of notes and direction.

About Nahida

Salaam!

I'm a feminist Qur’anic exegete who adopts a Qur’an-first interpretative approach: all exegeses I write are founded on Qur’anic verses, and hadith contribute a secondary, supportive role for perspectives that are already established by the Qur’an. I produce unique, analytical, and detailed arguments founded on the Qur’anic principles of justice, equality, virtue, and mercy. Religious issues addressed in my exegeses are supported most substantially with discussions of word usage, style, and grammar.

I'm also a novelist. My primary genres are magical realism, science fiction, and fantasy. I write fiction that features recognizably non-European worlds and characters, whose identities, stories, and worlds are sculpted after and influenced by diaspora. I'm particularly interested in writing stories that feature characters of underrepresented sexes, races, sexualities, and abilities.

Sincerest thanks to all my patrons! I'm looking forward to continuing to create engaging and challenging content.

"And by the soul and Who perfected it,
And inspired it with discernment
of its self-rebellion and its consciousness."
