ZM (a Muslim Background Believer): Many Muslim women want you to know that they are a lot like you. They love to laugh, have fun, spend time with their family, shop for new clothes, put on make-up, talk about friendships and relationships, be accepted and appreciated for who they are.

ZM: Smile and be friendly. Treat her like she exists and matters. Don’t look down on her for being (or dressing) different. Care about her. Don’t be afraid to share your faith with her. Be open to her questions. Ask her questions about her faith.
