Thank you for visiting! I'm an author and speaker, and I appreciate your interest in my work. My books, articles, blogs, and speaking events are my way of promoting intercultural understanding in the world. Since I'm a Muslim American and my expertise is in Islamic law, that's largely -- but not solely -- what I write and speak about.
I write on the kinds of topics I've been asked about all my life. And I place my answers in contexts that are relatable and -- I hope -- fun to read. My goal is to write as though my reader is sitting across the table from me, sharing a pot of tea.
"Ali-Karamali’s genius is her ability to tackle a controversial subject and explain it in a clear and engaging style." -- John L. Esposito, Professor of Islamic Studies and the Director of Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University
