About Us

MNATION was born out of the idea that Muslims need a space where they can be free to be themselves and celebrate their own unique understanding of identity and perspectives with like-minded high performers across the globe. Your denomination is none of our business. Your relationship with Allah is personal and we are not here to tell you how to love your Maker. We just want to capture and promote all the richness and variety of muslim achievement from around the world, in all sectors of industry. We are keen to preserve and share all the colourful permutations of Islamic interpretation and understanding, whether it be expressed through business, politics, sport, culture, tech or cuisine, your voice matters, and we want to amplify it! If you have a great story to share, we want to hear from you. Email your submission to the Editor-in-Chief Joanne.smith@mnation.uk Let’s stand united. Let’s uplift our ummah. Let’s move forward together, inshallah!
