In Emails from Scheherazad, Mohja Kahf writes back to post-9/11 neo-Orientalist epistemologies, informing Western discourses on Muslim, especially veiled, women: “Yes, I speak English/Yes, I carry explosives/They’re called words/And if you don’t get up/Off your assumptions/They’re going to blow you away” (35). Similarly, other writers, such as Leila Aboulela, Ahdaf Soueif, Hanan al-Shaykh and Tahmina Anam, work towards decolonizing Muslim women’s bodies, whilst stressing piety as a lived experience. Still others, among them Randa Abdel-Fattah, Shelina Janmohamed, G. Willow Wilson and Umm Juwayriyah, are turning to and ‘Islamizing’ youth culture genres like young adult fiction, romance, fantasy and urban fiction.
