    Dear Sister Fawzia, Assalaamu Alaikum,
    I saw your bio and was wondering if you’d be willing to work with me on creating and Eid song.
    The goal is to write something that can be sung in public schools in the US.
    We dont’ have to come up with a tune, only the words. I noticed you’ve writen a lot of book for children on Eid. No matter your decision, would you mind referring me to your favorite that you think may be helpful in writing a song?
    JazakiAllah Khayr and may Allah reward you for your work.
