Naima Saif’ullah’s biography depicts the religious conversion of a modern woman. Naima’s biography describes how she was able to break bad habits of smoking crack or marijuana, how her health conditions have improved, how she was able to realize and better fulfill her roles as a daughter, mother, and sister, and how she was able to attain psychic stability through her Islamic faith. The inclusion of an account of how Islam provides women with empowerment and courage to face problems as strong-willed adults is vital to this study because not only does this address general questions regarding African-American women who have adopted Islam, but it also embodies a historical account of the independent Sunni movements that occurred during the 1980s.

Keywords:   Naima Saif’ullah, religious conversion, modern women, psychic stability, Islamic faith, African American Women, Sunni movements
