Assalamualaykum Warahmatalahi Wabarakatu !

Our dear Sisters all over the globe, WELCOME!

We would like to welcome you to a wonderful community for sisters from all over the world! One of the beauties of Islam is the uniting of the Ummah (community). Some times we are so busy with the dunya (temporary life) we fail to realise what keeps us strong with our deen (faith) is always remembering Allah! Allah is MOST merciful, MOST kind, and MOST beneficent! Praise Allah for He gave you that beautiful smile, praise Allah for He gave you your voice to say ” I am a woman Alhamdulillah!”, praise Allah for he gave you the ability to start a family and raise your children to be beautiful slaves to Allah!

Please join this Ummah and give thanks to Allah by spreading the beauty of Islam to one another. This blog is for us to connect one another to each other. This blog is for you to speak out about your questions and concerns about Islam. This blog is for the new Muslims Alhamdulillah! This blog is your home.

All praises and thanks due to Allah and Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is Allah’s last messenger.

July 15th

A Day in the life of a New Muslim….

Today Alhamdulillah (Thanks be to God) was a great day! Since I have been married, I started a new routine with my husband Alhamdulillah which took a bit of time getting used to. I stay up well through the night until Fajr prayer (morning prayer). This is no struggle for me as I am currently relaxing and enjoying the summer with my husband Alhamdulillah, and besides, after Fajr we sleep until Duhr (mid-afternoon prayer) ! For Allah, NOTHING is hard. Think of our Dear Prophet Muhammad (Peace be onto him) and what he went through!!!!!

So after Fajr prayer I made breakfast for my sweet husband and he was getting ready to go to Jummat (Friday congregation) prayer. I prayed Duhr and made du’aa (supplications) and after that I decided to do some yoga and clean up the home. My days feel so long sometimes I don’t even remember what I did!!! But Alhamdulillah at least I remember the most important things.

I am starting to find that exercising is getting soooo boring! I do the p90 yoga and the male on the dvd talks way too much Mashallah! But I am so used to this dvd I can do pretty much the poses by myself Mashallah and I don’t wait for him to finish talking. Alas! I finished the yoga!

After this I got ready and waited for my friend Liz (my non-Muslim friend) to visit me 🙂 During the waiting period I decided to check out some dawah websites and came across which is a website catered towards new reverts to Islam!!! Alhadulillah, Allah guides me each and every day to discover more websites to help make my transition into Islam easier. Subhanallah! I always like to search websites about other new Muslims and see how they are experiencing their new found glory of Islam! How blessed we all are Alhamdulillah.

So Liz arrived on time today Alhamdulillah and we were talking about my move to North Kentucky, Ohio! Inshallah may Allah guide my husband and I safely and uneventfully.

I will be relocating there Inshallah as my husband will be studying at the university of North Kentucky, and I will be taking Dr. Bilal Philips online Islamic University ! Mashallah. Alahamdulillah. Subhanallah!

Allah loves those who seek knowledge.

“It is only those who have knowledge amongst His slaves that fear Allah.” [Soorah Al-Fatir (35): 28]

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “If
anyone travels on a road in search of knowledge, God
will cause him to travel on one of the roads of
Paradise. The angels will lower their wings in their
great pleasure with one who seeks knowledge. The
inhabitants of the heavens and the Earth and
(even) the fish in the deep waters will ask
forgiveness for the learned man. The superiority of
the learned over the devout is like that of the moon,
on the night when it is full, over the rest of the
stars. The learned are the heirs of the Prophets, and the Prophets leave
(no monetary inheritance), they leave only knowledge,
and he who takes it takes an abundant portion.
{Sunan of Abu-Dawood, Hadith 1631}

HOW BEAUTIFUL!?!?!??!?!!? Wallahi’, I LOVE ISLAM.

We must take the days that Allah has given us and use them to our advantage. He created us with a brain and the ability to learn and take the things we’ve learned and put them through into actions! What kind of knowledge have you been seeking lately?

Anyway! back to my day (sorry I get so excited sometimes talking about Islam I get sidetracked, please forgive me sisters!)

Liz and I talked for a bit and then my dear sister in Islam came to visit me! I met her at the Journey of Faith Conference this year Alhamdulillah!!!

It was a beautiful afternoon with two very dear friends. We had a great discussion about Islam and Christianity. Liz is a practising Christian who seems to really find the teachings of Islam beautiful and befitting to her. May Allah guide her to Islam!

The Afternoon came and went and I prayed Asr with my dear sister 🙂

The day came and went……SO FAST Subhanallah! (The SIGNS of the Qiyamah(Day of Judgement) are fast approaching!)

My dear sister Iliyasa and I are currently working on a great Dawah project Inshallah, may Allah help us and guide us all in this Ummah to be closer together.

I will write more tomorrow Inshallah!


Your Sister in Islam, Khadijah


Assalamualaykum wahrahmatalahi wabarakatu!!!

What a long day !
I hope all my dear sisters are doing well and had a great Saturday! It was really hot today ! But I am getting used to the hijab and decided that wearing white on hot days like today keeps me quite cool 🙂

So my eventful day started out with my fajr prayer and then I went back to sleep for a few hours and woke up before my hubby so I ate some really good Chinese bakery from the T n T supermarket !! I actually spent some time with my mother and attempted to watch her Chinese shows but I really don’t find any entertainment at all in old women with an overdone face sitting around a table and eating food critiquing it! StefurAllah( forgive me Allah) what is the dunya coming to these days?
Being a new Muslimah I have really changed my lifestyle for the better. This includes the way I treat my parents. For as long as I could remember I was always spoiled and treated my parents the way the western culture treats everyone. Need I say more we all know how the western culture is like even if you weren’t born in a western country. Anyway, Islam has taught me so much and I am still seeking knowledge!!
Here I get sidetracked again, forgive me sisters!!

So back to my day… I prayed duhr and got ready to head out with my husband and my parents to head to my uncles BBQ.
We arrive and by this time it was time for asr and I told him we were going to use a room upstairs to pray. Luckily alhamdulilah my family has no issues with me and my reversion of Islam. They occasionally do make the ignorant remarks but I just bite my tongue and only Allah can judge them.
After we pray all my cousins and aunt and uncle arrive and we begin to talk and I was making my signature pizzas yum!!!
I won’t go into play by play detail of what we did next because it was nothing exciting however I will tell you how it feels to be around my family with my new found identity as a Muslim.

It feels different. I feel like I can see clearly now how so many people including my family is so immersed in this Dunya. Nobody really asks me about my religion as I think they think they may offend me but I’m sure it would offend me more if they were talking behind my back. I know it’s my duty to talk to hem about Islam but I’m still not too sure how. I have been sending them email links and articles in Chinese but nobody has dared to ask me anything. It’s sort of like a topic that is ignored. Which makes me feel like they don’t really care. But sadly my family has become westernized as well. I know it will just take time before I become a pro in dawah inshallah and Allah will help guide me and I will find a way!!!!!!!

The night finally ended and we headed home and prayed isha. I must tell you, today I discovered another reason out of the many as to why we Muslims pray 5 times a day! To keep ourselves SANE from the dunya. After spending the day with my family I was anticipating the maghrib adhan during the BBQ. A Muslim can ONLY sit through so much of the dunya until they go crazy without praying. Praying refreshes your physical and mental state and reminds you that Allah is so merciful and so kind and so amazing!!!!! Subhanallah! I believe until I can start giving my family the they need, I centre myself and keep my deen strong by taking the time out of my day to worship Allah subhannah watalah.

My dear sisters how are you all doing? Inshallah well.
Here I am making an entry while I wait for fajr prayer at 4:09am today! I am so sleepy!!!! But inshallah today I will be fasting so I have to stay up to have my sahur( the meal you have before you fast)…. Ramadan is fast approaching!!!! Are you ready? It will be my first Ramadan so inshallah it will be exciting!!
Nothing too much out of the ordinary happened today except I am starting to pack for my relocation to the US with my hubby. We are moving to north Kentucky inshallah where I believe the Muslim community is close to none! But may Allah the almighty guide us and help us through our journey inshallah.

The most eventful part of my day was breaking my fast and reading the Quran but the English version. Inshallah I will learn the Quran in Arabic soon after my islamic online university course- or perhaps during! But I was never great with prioritizing so it’s best I focus on one thing at a time( see how I get so sidetracked?!) anyway so my husband was also reading the Quran but the actual book in Arabic and he told me to look at surah (14:38 Ibrahim) and I wanted to include this ayah in my blog:

” Do not think God is unaware of the wrongdoers’ actions. He only gives them respite till the Day on which all eyes will stare fixedly in horror. They will hurry in fright, their heads lifted up, their gaze directed forward, their minds utterly void.” (14:38)
And also
” On the day when the earth shall be changed into another earth, as shall be the heavens, they will all appear before God, the One, The Most Supreme. On that Day you shall see the guilty bound chains, their garments shall be of pitch and the fire shall envelop their faces.”{14:48}
“God will requite each soul according to it’s deeds.Swift is God’s reckoning” {14:51}

Now tell me , do these words not speak of truth? They are so powerful!!! On the Day of Judgement you will be questioned before God whether or not you tried to spread the love of Islam to your neighbor and to your family and friends.
What would you tell Allah?


July 23,2011
Assalamalykum !
Wow what a long day today!
As I’m writing this I am still in the car on my way to Cincinnati Ohio!
What an adventure it’s been thus far. Alhamdulillah a very uneventful adventure. Is that contradicting? If so forgive me, I am so tired!
We decided to take the bus to buffalo where my husbands friend was to meet us and we would drive to Cincinnati! Let me tell you how the day went so far!
I had trouble sleeping because I was so nervous! Leaving behind my home country to relocate to another place so absorbed by the dunya has got me so anxious! SubahanAllah.
So we everything was running on time until we got to the bus station where our bus was 30 minutes late!!! InshAllah it finally came and we boarded and headed to buffalo.
It was a nice quiet time to reflect and remember Allah. That’s all I can do since I’m out of commission if you know what I mean! I read some of my Qur’an my dear sister Iliyasa gave to me. It has the English version and Arabic right beside it. It is so perfect alhamdulilah !

We arrived at the border and because my husband is from Saudi Arabia you can imagine what we went through!! However, alhamdulilah it was better than expected. They asked a bunch of questions and we were held for quite some time. They asked him a bunch of things and ran some scans on his last name lol and scanned his fingerprints  it was almost like something out of a movie. We finally were good to go and then we heard our bus broke down! SubhanAllah! How Allah tests our patience is such a great thing!
So my husbands friend came to meet us at the border but his phone died! Lol I could do nothing but smile. Here we both are in this new city and we were stranded for a short while. I was not worried at all to be honest because I knew Allah was helping us but He was just testing our patience and I know He was doing nothing bur helping us grow some patience !
We ended up meeting his friend at the original meeting spot and we were finally on our way to kentucky.

The drive was smooth except there was a brief thunderstorm and it was hard for us to see the road so we had to pull over for a bit.
The highlight of my whole trip to Kentucky was seeing my husband pray in the parking lot of our pitstop! SubhanAllah . Of course I would have too but unfortunately I am out of commission 😦 !!!
InshAllah soon.
I miss Allah when I don’t get to pray but it’s best to read Qur’an and always remember Allah and our dear prophet (pbuh) .

So we finally arrive at 2am and we were roaming around cincinnati for a while trying to find a hotel!!! Can you believe that the day we come into the city all the hotels are booked?? It’s not even a long weekend lol!
ALAS! we find a dingy motel and fall asleep. Alhamdulillah.

July 24,2011

The sleep in the dingy motel was actually quite good, maybe because I was so tired.
Let me tell you , being in this state is so different I honesty believe I am the ONLY muslimah here. I guess there is a reason for this, Allahuma alam. We will see what Allah has in store for us!
Today we started our day off checking out the university campus mashAllah it’s huge and then we saw our home and it’s soooo big mashAllah!! Lots of furniture to fill up the place . Alhamdullilah. Then we went to get our furniture , wow it’s a lot cheaper than toronto and the people here SO far are quite polite I’m not used to it! People in Toronto are so rude!!!!
After a brief tour of cincinnati ( which is like 10 minutes away from north Kentucky) we went  to eat at a mediterranean restaurant ! The food was really good alhamdulillah!! Things here are WAY cheaper mashAllah!

Anyway after a short day which felt like a very long one, I am back at the dingy motel appreciating my day and remembering Allah and our dear prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Stay tuned for my next entry!
Hope you are all doing well .
