  1. SubhannAllah, This article touched my heart. I am embarrassed to admit I have not heard of Mrs.Jameela until I read this article. She was an amazing Muslimah, May Allah turn us all on the straight path of the Righteous.

  2. This is indeed stunning! Never heard about her until now! May Allah SWT bless her and grant her JAnnat ul Firdous Ameen!

  3. I’m not a Muslim myself but the “lessons about productivity” resonate well with me, regardless of differences in religious beliefs. Women who use their intelligence, beauty, and the power of written word for creating positive impacts in the lives of others are commendable. Well done and congratulations Dr.Rakhmatov!

  4. MashaAllah what a great woman she must have been to make such a change not only in her own life but also spreading the light of her faith to the whole world. To your question at the end of the article about having been influenced by any muslim woman, I think I must share my story as a tribute to one great woman whose dedication to teach the word of Allah has transformed the life of millions of people all over the world… I have posted it on my blog with the hope that it might benefit those who want to seek the truth:

  5. Jazakallah khair for introducing us to this lovely personality and I love how you mentioned the key points that we can learn from her productive and righteous life!

  6. mashaAllah, she must have been a source of inspiration to many who knew her. sad that I’m hearing about her now for the first time. It’s really exciting that we share birthday : ) , I have every reason to follow her footsteps. May Allah have mercy on her. Thanks for sharing,jazakumuLlahu khayr.

  8. may ALLAH grant her with his mercy ameen and hope to read always about conversion people to islam and their achievements :)

    • I am grateful to productivemuslim.com for writing about such a wonderful lady. I didnt know that she passed away couple of months back in Lahore though I live in Pakistan. It would have been better if you had included her important books in this article. I always loved Dr.Asad and Maryam Jameela for their valuable contribution to Islam and believe that reverted muslims are a great future of Islam.
      One thing which is confusing for me: She was against modernism and materialistic society. What does this mean? Why we muslims assume that modernism is something really bad? We mix up liberal cultures with modernism. Actually its basic values which will not change while other changes are part of life and increase our productivity.

  9. SubhanAllah this is soo inspirational especially for a muslim women. JazakaAllah khair this is exactly what I needed at this stage :)

  10. Masha Allah. I loved this article. Inspired me a lot. Alhamdulillah. :D
    May Allah have mercy on her. Ameen.

  11. Maryam Jameelah had great impacts on my life. I read about her some 20 years ago when I was still in secondary school. Her writings had inspired me to be a Da’ee. I pray Allah admit her in Jannatul Fridaus and grant us all ability to live examplary life on the bases of Deen (ameen).
    More sisters to start from where she stopped!

  12. Assalamu alaikum

    Inna LILLAHI wa inna ilaihi rajiun. Only through this post i came to know about her death. A marvelous lady. May Allah Accept her deeds and admit her in jannah.

    I urge the fellow muslims if you really want to know her please read her books. All are available free download.

    Indeed a great loss for community. The knowledge has taken away.

  13. Sister Jameelah’s writings have always been part of my hoousehold growing up. As an adult I clearly see the strength of faith she must have had to transform herself and her fellow sisters. For her to settle as the second wife in a strange country with a different culture is testament to her humility and obedience to Allah(swt). Adieu sister Jameelah,May Allah bless you with Jannatil firdau

  14. inna lillai wa ina ilehi rajiuna sister Maryam Jameelah, may Allah accept your return and reward you with al-janaat Firdaus. l read some of her books way back in my university days,those books really,really shaped me islamically. until now ,l didnt know she has passed on.

  15. You all should read the book “The convert: A tale of Exile and Extremism” It is a book about Maryam’s entire life. It is quite a read! According to the novel it turns out that she had schizophrenia!

    • There are almost 30 books of her own writings… So better to depend on them to understand who is she.. No need to read a book written about her by a third person, especially when the writer has a hidden agenda!
