Huda is a Muslim woman who wears the hijab and is sick of being asked whether she’s hot (spoiler: she is!). She was born and raised in the good ol’ U. S. of A and loves Harry Potter and all things pop culture. These stories follow her sweaty misadventures.
Gehad (pronounced Jihad)
Husband to Huda and loves Pokémon, video games, and all things technology. He is often getting lost and forcing Huda to yell out his name (much to everyone’s horror). He is Huda’s support system and best friend.
Huda and her Mom are very close. Huda’s Mom immigrated to the United States when she was young and is very suspicious of people. She has high standards for Huda and played a huge part in raising Huda to be strong and proud of her Muslim self.
Agent Darius of the FBI is assigned to watch Huda and Gehad for no other reason except that they’re Muslim. Though he knows they’re just nerds, he continues to watch them, often misunderstanding their colloquialisms for potential threats. He has a complicated friendship with Gehad.
The frenemy without a clue. Susan’s default setting is to spout microaggressions wherever she goes. She runs a clothing store in the mall and is constantly “bumping” into Huda and Gehad. She is totally oblivious to Huda and Gehad’s annoyance.
The Doc is Huda’s best friend and confidant. She is a family doctor who Huda often goes to for advice. She is usually seen in the presence of Huda’s inflatable couch as Huda treats her like her own personal psychiatrist—much to Dr. Nabaa’s chagrin.
