On April 20, 2002, The Seattle Times featured an article on Azizah, a magazine "created for the 'contemporary Muslim woman.'" The magazine is produced by and for American Muslim women and "is a conversational mix of religion and profiles, family issues and home decor, fashion and health... With articles on the Sept. 11 backlash against Muslims, birth control and feminism, the quarterly doesn't shy from controversy... Azizah doesn't play it safe, but it's deliberately nonconfrontational, said editor and publisher Tayyibah Taylor, former principal of the Islamic School of Seattle... Azizah is, after all, all about the minds of American Muslim women, in their owns words, on their own terms. The Arabic word means nobility, dearness and strength."
