brasscrescent_backHello everyone. I’m honoured to announce that my Unmosqued Roundtable series has been nominated for a Brass Crescent Award!!

So if you’re feeling particularly inspired by my piece in the “Best Post or Series” category, then please head on over and vote.

The Brass Crescent awards honour the best writers and thinkers in the Muslim blogosphere — and I’m absolutely thrilled and humbled to be among a brilliant group of writers who received nominations. Thank you everyone for your continued support. My series would be nothing without the thought-provoking conversations we have together.

Thank you again!

There are many excellent writers deserving of your vote — don’t forget to take a moment to show them some love as well.

Masha’Allah, I’ve been nominated for a Brass Crescent Award for Best Female Blogger.

Also, my most popular post, Only Women Bleed: menstruation and prayer in Islam was nominated under the Best Post or Series category.

I’m so very excited and if you agree with these humbling and mind-blowing nominations, then please go out and vote for me!

The Brass Crescent Awards is an annual awards ceremony to honour the best writers and thinkers of the emerging Muslim blogosphere. Nominations are taken from blog readers, who then vote for the winners.

Thank you to everyone who sent in a nomination. I can’t thank you and all of my wonderful readers enough for your support over the past 18 months. Half of what makes wood turtle a brilliant place is all of the thought-provoking conversations we have — and I’ve learned so much and am amazed at how much I’ve grown as a Muslim, mom and person from engaging with all of you.

There are some truly awesome nominees this year. You must absolutely check out (and if you’re inspired, vote for):

Thank you again everyone!
