When retired cardiologist Naiyer Habib and his wife, Mahlaqa, joined forces to write their new book, they knew how important the work would prove to be. “We did not want our generation to be lost in the wilderness of confusion,” writes Naiyer.

Earning the Gold Seal of Literary Excellence by Trafford Publishing, “History of the Muslims of Regina, Saskatchewan, and Their Organizations: Islamic Association, Canadian Council of Muslim Women, Muslim for Peace and Justice ‘A Cultural Integration’” (published by Trafford Publishing), chronicles the Habib’s struggle of preserving their Muslim culture and religion after immigrating to Canada in 1973.

It is a story that has earned the authors praise and recommendation from The U.S. Review of Books, which calls the new work, “exhaustively researched.” An excerpt from the review:

“The book reads best as a reference volume, primarily consisting of photos and photocopied letters, newspaper articles and documents. …The book admirably highlights the intention of this immigrant group to integrate into local society, while sustaining critical aspects of culture and religion.”
