The annual pilgrimage to Mekkah performed by Muslims from all corners of the globe. Unlike other pillars of Islam, Hajj is only prescribed once to those with the means and ability to perform it. It is both physically and spiritually demanding.

What makes Hajj special? What motivates the old and young to go through such an arduous journey? Why do Muslims from all walks of life congregate, turning the empty plains of Mina and Arafah into a sea...

Following the CNA interview where my family and I shared about my journey to Islam, I've had several people get in touch with me on Facebook. A group of them were Muslims whose other halves were learning more about Islam. They asked for tips and advice on how they can be a greater support to their partners, which was really heartening.

Having spoken to them, I realized that most of the issues that they were facing were similar, and they often re...

For as long as I can remember, I've always been fascinated with light and radiance. I hated the darkness. I hated dark rooms. I didn't like to be in places where there was no natural light.

There was once I had a mini panic attack when I was showed the place I had to work in for the job I was applying for. I withdrew my application on the spot and left the room. 

In 2011, I enrolled into a life coaching program. We spent weeks working and discoverin...

Wouldn't it be great if we had an all-in-one solution for every single problem we face in life?

How fortunate is the Muslim, for Allah has already prescribed a solution for every problem His servant will face. And the solution is incredibly simple:

It's La illaha ilallah.

With La illaha ilallah, you accept that everything happens according to His will and decree.

With La illaha ilallah, you accept that whatever befell you was decreed by Alla...

This is a continuation of the first post I did on performing Umrah as a convert.

Umrah can be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for some of us, so make the most of it. There were times when I lost my temper, when I was grouchy because I didn't have enough sleep and when I judged others.  No one is perfect. And no one is going to be. So don't fret! When you find yourselves in these moments, seek His forgiveness and resolve to be better after that.

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim. All praises be to Allah.

I reverted to Islam in May 2015. Alhamdulillah, Allah had eased the journey for me. I was able to recite the Shahadah, in the presence and under the full support of my family and friends.

My husband and I had our nikah in September 2015. I was fulling expecting to be going on a romantic honeymoon, but Aizat had other plans. He told me that before anything else, he wanted us to perform our Umrah toge...
