When asked by Khaleej Times, one of the UAE's leading newspapers, which "book changed her life and shaped her outlook", author Hafsa Lodi said:
Last month's read, Big Little Steps, written by Dubai resident Mathilde Loujayne, was inspiring. It's a lighthearted guidebook to practising Islam, packed with lots of knowledge and research about how certain traditions and rulings apply to women in particular. It also offers advice on balancing religious doctrine revealed in the 7th century, with 21st century lifestyles. It motivated me to return to praying regularly - or at least, trying my best to.
Hafsa is the author of Modesty: A Fashion Paradox, out March 2020.
