Muslimah Bloggers Summit Review

It all began back on August 8, 2017, when Fozia Shah, the owner of Muslim Mummies  and founder of the Facebook group Muslimah Bloggers, wrote these simple 10 words in a post:

Would any of you be interested

in a blogging summit?

Right away, our humble group of a little over 700 women replied with their enthusiasm:

  • Count me in.
  • I’m interested.
  • Yes!!
  • I’m definitely in.
  • Absolutely.

The Muslimah Bloggers Summit was born. And soon the wheels were set in motion to help each other with tips, know-how and solutions to stumbling blocks we may have in building our brand.

We were going to have online informative talks relating to blogging and social media. Many sisters who had never met in person, stepped up and were willing to talk to a camera, connecting with total strangers, in one mission: see each other succeed by sharing our journeys.

After months of planning, both in the group and in hundreds of emails that traveled back and forth missed deadlines and apologies, tags and scheduling last minute additions and subtractions, it happened. January 2018 had finally arrived and we were almost live.

Behind the scenes, nerves were setting in but there was no turning back.  10 speakers were announced and the videos were posted for one week for free.  Since then, they may still be downloaded for a fee, which benefits the running of the Muslimah Bloggers website.

There were 17 videos.  There were a  total of 3 hours of visual presentions. Here is some feedback from members of the group after the event:

After hearing Dr Gemma Elizabeth’s talk, I sat down and planned and prioritized my week ahead, I already feel confident I am going to be more productive than ever.


I took up blogging recently and this summit made me understand the concepts in detail and how to plan and go with the flow. How to promote etc. This will make me to be more productive than before in shaa Allah


Sis Papatia ‘s words of ‘Keep your day job. They will help in financing your dreams’ So true. Especially when you are a newbie blogger. Blogging brings in money only after a little while.. after you have put in lot of hard work, creativity and effort. Meanwhile your day job will help you in establishing your brand, paid products, physical products, publishing of ebooks or books etc.


With such a successful event that benefited so many women invested in giving each other a boost, I really hope this past January Muslimah Bloggers Summit turns into an annual event.
