Salaam Dear Leila
Welcome to our new column, Salaam Dear Leila!

We welcome questions from people of all faiths or none. We encourage you to ask about what matters most to you, including general life problems. Think about issues that could benefit from advice which takes your faith into account as Leila will answer your questions with a faith-centric approach.

We look forward to your questions!
