Umm Zakiyyah is the internationally acclaimed, award-winning author of more than twenty-five books, including novels, short stories, and self-help. Her books are used in high schools and universities in the United States and worldwide, and her work has been translated into multiple languages. Her work has earned praise from writers, professors, and filmmakers. Her novel His Other Wife is now a short film. Umm Zakiyyah has traveled the world training both first-time authors and published writers in story writing. Her clients include journalists, professional athletes, educators, and entertainers. In 2020, Umm Zakiyyah started the UZ Heart & Soul Care community in which she shares lessons of love and heartbreak, as well as nearly losing her faith and then reclaiming it.

“Thank you to Umm Zakiyyah for giving us so many wonderful, inspirational reminders. Please keep doing what you’re doing, because you are saying some of the hard things that we want to talk about but we just don’t know how to verbalize. So when you post things that trigger our emotions and remind us of the good things we should be doing for ourselves and others, it’s a real eye-opener…Please continue to be our voice.”

—Aliza Kim, TV show host and former model and actress
