One of the greatest stories rarely told is that of the long, rich history of Muslim immigration to the United States…until now. Stretching back hundreds of years, amongst the most notable narrators is Amir Muhammad, founder and chief curator of America’s Islamic Heritage Museum, a petite institution with a do-it-yourself collector’s feel in southeast Washington, D.C.

Then, there’s photographer, Ismail Sayeed. Creatively known as “Calligrafist”, Ismail Sayeed presents his latest piece of work, a photo series titled Muslimah Photo Series. A virtual ode to Muslimaat and their value to the Islamic culture, Ismail Sayeed celebrates Muslimaat with the collection.

Sayeed shares “Throughout my entire life Muslim women have always been a foundation, inspiration, and supporter of me and all that I do. It’s important for me to support women and in this instance, Muslim women. Muslim women are the foundation of community, family, life, and all things Islamic when you truly take a step back and look…”

He adds, “‘Women who cover’ were the focus of this particular series, as they represent Islam without even having to say a word; simply by their hair coverings it speaks to their faith, self-awareness, and consciousness.”

Ismail “Calligrafist” Sayeed partners with BLEU Magazine to celebrate Muslimah Photo Series and their “cover” girls for the culture.
