Ramadhan Prep 2018

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Wait! Can you believe Ramadhan is here already?

May Allah make us witnesses. Amin.

I first came across the monthly one word goal from Layinka Sanni’s Instagram last year. Its when you find a word that encompasses your goals and you take the word and make it your focus. You put it into the goals of your areas of life – career, business, family, spirituality, financial and social.

Letter to my unmarried sister

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

In the name of Allah, the most Gracious, the most Merciful

Assalamu’alaikum Beautiful,

I pray that you are in perfect health and the best of Iman. I write you today because I have some things I want you to know or maybe just remind you in case you have forgotten.

17 lessons I learnt in 2017

Alhamdulillah! We have come to the end of the year. 2017 was a lot of days and a lot of things happened. I had my ups and downs. As well as the way-up-there and the really-down-here. I felt joy, sadness, exhilarating out-of-this-world happiness, and why-me sadness, pain and love. I have grown and changed. I have learnt, lost and failed. I have succeeded, fallen and risen. Alhamdulillah!
