The Mighty Small

Bismillah It was a children’s book. And what can you expect from it apart from a shamble of words with wacky characters and even wackier storyline? I was reading it because my curiousity got the better of me upon reading the title – and I was in for a good surprise when I read just […]

Survival instinct

Bismillah   What does it take for you to save yourself from an ocean full of sharks? What does it take for you to save yourself from being chased by a starving tiger? And… what does it take for you to save this ummah?   It all comes down to one, shockingly, but undoubtedly similar […]

It has been a while…

Bismillah It has been a while. A really long while.  What happened? I wish I have a solid answer for that – but I don’t. There is simply isn’t any simplistic answer. Sigh. I have missed writing. Truly do.  I guess this is me… trying to pick up the pieces again. Hey, I’m back! It might take me […]

Love finally

Bismillah Do you know what’s the most touching part of every love story is? When the main characters finally fell in love with each other. And that’s why the most amazing thing in this short and temporary life is when a slave finally falls in love with the one who has always loved them in […]

Lost 

Bismillah Imagine ourselves being dropped, plop! in the middle of a forest – thick, dark forest. Imagine waking up, and finding ourselves in the middle of an unknown, mysterious, alien place.   What am I doing here? How on earth did I end up here?   These are among the first few questions that would […]

The Monster

Bismillah There’s a known Monster. A terrible, terrible thing. Insatiable; a horrendous, monstrous thing. It is breathing, it is Alive. And it grows. It lurks where no one can see it, but it can see us as clear as day. It is like a baby, it cries for attention. Always. Loud, and banging. Screeching and […]

Which one would you rather…?

Bismillah ‘Which one would you rather: to live or to die?’ she asked. And in a heartbeat, I already know what my answer is. There, in the tiny corner of my heart, it beats: I’d choose death anytime. However, it left me thinking all the same. Am I ready for it, though? To some, the idea of seeking death may […]

A Love Letter to Self

​Bismillah Salam, How have you been? You have been quiet lately… I know A LOT of things are happening right now, but you know what? You’ll get it through. You are a lot stronger than whatever it is that is weighing you down. Know why? Because you have HIM: the One who Creates you and […]

A short break

Bismillah Dear beautiful hearts out there, It has been a while since I last posted, I realised. Things are happening around here. I will be taking a short break, bi idznillah, to sort things out. Whoever you are reading this, do remember me in your prayers. Everyone is a soldier, for everyone is undergoing a […]

Do you know why?

Bismillah I remember the first Islamic Awareness Week which I attended years ago (my Rabb, I feel so old saying that), one of the seniors handling the booth had said something which touched me and moved me in such a way that it left me utterly stunned; breathless. Those words stayed with me even until […]
