• AN AWARD-WINNING, NONRELIGIOUS
    CURRENT AFFAIRS PLATFORM

Welcome to The Islamic Monthly's website!

The magazine was co-founded and run by three American Muslim women in 2010 inspired by the publication's former magazine, Islamica. The magazine successfully printed bi-annullly from 2011-2018 with daily digital content and exclusive interviews in the form of print, audio and visual stories. The magazine's core principle was to allow for a space for stories of all kinds related to American Muslims, while striving for abiding by ethical journalism. Despite it's many successes, including a number of exclusive interviews and having articles referenced in mainstream press in America often, and challenges the magazine could not sustain itself or find the proper funding to continue publishing. It never officially shuttered but stopped active publishing in 2018.
