Background information on Emel Magazine :
Whilst many Muslims have highlighted the need for high-quality contemporary Muslim publications, few have taken this challenge to heart. Well, all is about to change as emel – the new Muslim lifestyle magazine – hits the shelves of Muslim bookstores and perhaps also mainstream media outlets. We took the opportunity to speak with Sarah Joseph, editor of emel to get a behind the scenes insight into this refreshing new publication.
What was the thinking that led to the production of emel?
We wanted to create a high quality magazine that celebrated Muslim life in Britain. We wanted to create a magazine that we could be proud of and that would reflect the positive aspects of Muslim life as well as looking at the difficult issues, which face us. We know that Islam is broad and that Muslims are interested in every aspect of life, but we are often seen in a very two-dimensional way. We hope emel dispels the misconceptions that Muslims are only interested in politics or religious rituals. Also, Islamic civilisation has had so much influence in so many key areas of culture but that is rarely seen – we hope we will manage to reflect our history as well as how Muslims are creating a British Islamic culture.
