Tamam Kahn was born outside Chicago, and lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. She is a tenth generation American. Her travels to sacred sites in Morocco, Syria, Andalusia, and India, and her careful research of early Islamic history have informed her attunement to and knowledge of the wives of Prophet Muhammad. In 2009 she was invited by the Royal Ministry of Morocco to read about these first women of Islam at a large conference in Marrakesh.
Her book, Untold, A History of the Wives of Prophet Muhammad won an International Book Award for 2011 and is published in Indonesia that year by Kaysa Media.
She has studied Classical Arabic, and has an MA in Eastern Art History from San Francisco State University, has attended Stanford University, and has a BA from Sarah Lawrence College. She is also a poet and spoken word performer as well as author, and is married to Shabda Kahn, the spiritual director (Pir) of the Sufi Ruhaniat International, with outreach in 50 countries.
