who we are
Sisters Awakening Press is a vibrant independent publisher dedicated to delivering works of inspiration, empowerment, and upliftment to the hands and hearts of the discerning Muslimah reader.
At Sisters Awakening Press, we publish books that we love, believe in, and want to share with our sisters. The Press was born of a passion to have Muslim women’s voices heard in an authentic and relatable way.
