As Ramadan begins in 2023, our publishing house team is celebrating with Muslim author Najah Bazzy, who has been named one of USA Today’s Women of the Year.
This was especially timely because the news came as Ramadan is beginning for the world’s 2-billion Muslims—and one of Najah Bazzy’s many global humanitarian efforts is her book, The Beauty of Ramadan.
During the fasting month of Ramadan, Muslims revitalize their faith, celebrating the holy Quran and renewing their commitment to helping needy people around the world. As an internationally known transcultural nurse, Najah wrote this book as a simple guide to these sacred traditions, written for Muslims and non-Muslims as well.
The book is useful for those working to promote diversity, for community leaders who want to understand this month-long season among their Muslim neighbors and also for health-care professionals like Najah who want to understand both the traditions and the compassionate flexibility of this worldwide practice.
