WHO IS SHE?
Zohayma Montañer, of Hispanic Oriental descent, is a 13 time international award winning artist and has become one of the most eminent names in the scope of Islamic art and calligraphy.
Montañer was homeschooled and taught by Shaykha Nuriyya Yusuf where she gained Islamic knowledge and memorized the Qur’an within 8 months. She therefore occasionally delivers halaqah sessions in regards to the essential lessons for Muslim women and Arabic classes for children.
In 2012, she founded Al Ihsaan Islamic School of Arts an institution that aims to teach children the basic fundamentals of Islamic art and geometric designs. Two years later, she also founded Banat ul Mu’mineen, a muslim organization composed of sisters from all ages that aim to better themselves through attending weekly halaqah sessions.
Montañer is now actively working to spread the message of Islam through her works, lectures and art exhibitions worldwide.
