“9 to 5: Muslims in the Western Workplace” provides an insider’s view into what it means to be a Muslim at work. The volume is comprised of several actual and dramatized first-person accounts by Muslims in many different professions. Through the narratives and commentary, the author sets out to dispel myths, break down stereotypes, and generally show that “different” at work isn’t always “wrong”. By sharing their honest stories, the Muslim contributors clearly articulate some of the internal and external struggles they’ve faced in different occupations and how they’ve dealt with each situation. These candid tales help vocalize the chronicles of integration and identity retention at work and provide us all with a platform for understanding how Islam and work in the West really can go hand-in-hand.
