Submit a Poem


Love to write poetry? Want to submit a poem? If so, then please fill out the form below. You can submit as many as you like. It must be your work. Oh, and don’t forget to add your Twitter username!

What happens after I submit my post?

1. Approval. I read each and every submission. If I choose to publish your post, I will place your Twitter username at the bottom of the post linking to your Twitter page. A tweet will also be published from the @MuslimWordsBlog Twitter account announcing the new post.

2. Right to edit. As the administrator, I reserve the right to make edits where necessary. I will not focus on the content, but rather, the grammar and sentence structure of the post. I may also choose to edit your title for effectiveness. I will provide the feature image that goes along with your post submission. My intent is not to give your submission a facelift. I want you to express yourself through your own words.

3. Right to decline. In short, not every post will be published. I receive a lot of emails and submissions, but if yours stands out, then there’s a pretty good chance it will be. Don’t let that discourage you. Share your poem!

  1. In regards to the article – “Uncovered” it is rather disappointing that such an article was published and that admin found it appropriate to share with the world. Yes, wearing/ not wearing the hijab is between a woman and ALLAH (swt) end of story.
    Why is this the be all and end all of a woman’s struggle with spirituality? There is so much more … I am one of these women she is talking about yet none of the reasons she provided apply to me.
    I did not/do not have a ‘suffocating need to fit in’ or a desire for attention and affection. That’s awfully presumptuous of her to assume that’s why women have removed the hijab. Honestly this article is annoying on so many levels. It’s so reductive as if all women, hijabi or not, are simply obsessed with looks and attention.
    This article is based on the authors opinion and is definitely not a representation of many women nor me. I am a convert and it is just sad and disappointing to read such public articles and to think that basically a women’s adherence to Islam begins with a hijab and ends with a hijab.

    1. Thank you for the comment, but it really should be in the comment section of the article in question. This page is for poem submissions.

      Nevertheless, I understand your concerns, but it was never the intent of the article. The author interviewed multiple women who took off the hijab prior to writing this post, and like any post that I choose to publish, some people will agree and others won’t. At least we’re able to talk about the topic in a civilized manner. Many have misinterpreted the article and many have also praised it. Each individual will interpret through their own experiences. May Allah always guide us towards the truth.

      Here’s the part 2 of this article located on the author’s personal blog https://lillymohsen.wordpress.com/2015/03/15/uncovered-too-women-who-took-off-the-hijab-speak-out/

      Take care, and thanks again for participating.
