DISCUSSION: 100+ Muslim Books & Creators

100+ Muslim books and creators

*this post includes affiliate links I have with Amazon*

Hello everyone! So, earlier in the year, I made a post with 10 books by/with Muslims, and linked to a couple threads I did on Twitter, Goodreads, and Amazon, however, as the year went on and I added more books between them, I realized I was missing a TON in my post. Plus, all my threads were scattered and it was just all a mess. So I decided I’d do an updated post with 100+ (ya I said a hundred!) books, authors, and creators, and the list is only gonna grow! Speaking of growing, if you have any suggestions for books, authors or creators to add, let me know down below or on Twitter and I’ll try to add them ASAP! I hope you all enjoy and support these books and creators by sharing the links, buying, reading and/or reviewing them! Here we go….
