ABSTRACT

Veil has become a predominant issue of controversy and is counted as a locus of cultural debate between Islamic and secular-Western cultures. Just as Muslim women’s appearance, mode of their practice and agency has also received much critical attention from the part of secular-Western thinkers. In the backdrop of these debates, this paper elucidates the agency of Covered Sisters in The Size of a Mustard Seed. In this novel, Umm Juwariyyah, a Muslim-American writer, unravels the struggles Muslim-American women face from within and outside of the community. Covered Pearls is a female hair-salon in the novel where a powerful hijabi-sisterhood is formed which empowers them and resolves their manifold problems.

Keywords: Islam, America, Muslim Women, Sisterhood, Agency, Veil, Covered Pearls
