Based out of Austin, TX, Iqra Asad is not sure whether she is a dentist who writes or a writer who dentists, but she gained enough XP (experience points) during random encounters in the dungeon of despair to max out her "sarcasm" ability. She dedicated book two of her (unwritten) memoirs to exploring "the belly of the whale" and trying to tickle that hefty mammal from the inside with her "scorn" limit break. She connects her writing ability to the Divine through her personal motto, "I have given you my spindle, it is up to you to choose the wool for it." Whether or not she ends up weaving anything useful, only time will tell. Muslim Youth Musings is one of the first online publications she fell in love with as a reader of Muslim fiction and seeker of non-preachy Islamic advice, and having the honor to write for it is the stuff of her dreams.
