Writer. Artist. Educator. Mother. Wife. Student. Muslim.
Welcome to my blog, and thank you for your patronage! This is my attempt to document my journey throughout life and the lessons I learn along the way. I have high aspirations to write…both stories for children as well as teens/adults. I have always been in love with the written word, and it is my role as a stay-at-home mother that has recently spurred this burning desire within me to write again. I envision a world rich with moral literature that gives something to readers besides mere entertainment. I envision leaving sadaqa jariya in the form of inspirational Islamic literature for my daughter and the children of Islam to come that enriches their minds, bodies, and souls.
The above words–labels–roles are all very important to me. I try to fulfill each of them in the best way possible. Sometimes I’m more of one than another. At times it seems that I’m starting out fast and slow at the same time–I have so many ideas. Muslim fiction is a “new” idea–it hasn’t quite taken on in the Muslim markets yet. Therefore, it is hard to find someone to follow. We are all still paving our way. But who better to follow than rasulAllah (saws)? He (saws) was a prophet both like those before him, and unlike those before him. He paved his own way, and we are still following his way 1400-something years after him. Join me as I stumble around to find my place, my niche, my mihrab in the literary world.
