Sumbul Ali-Karamali

Award-Winning Author and Speaker

Public Speaking, Lectures, and Interviews


"In her presentations, Sumbul Ali-Karamali seamlessly moves from a line from the Quran and discussion of its multiple meanings to a personal story or current news item; the audience retains her explanations long after her last word."  -- Bonnie Zare, Professor of Sociology, Virginia Tech University

Demystifying Shariah

I've been speaking at all kinds of venues and to all ages for years, and I love connecting to my readers and audience who wish to understand more about Islam and Muslims from a Muslim-American perspective.  Although I synthesize settled academic scholarship for general audiences, I keep the tone of my lectures light, humorous, and relatable. I can customize a presentation for any group. If you'd like me to speak to your group or event, please email me the details through the contact form on this site.
