Eunoia

Each one of us carry our own sense of beauty and intelligence; no one is of lacking. We are all beautiful and we are all intelligent however, just on different levels unique to ourselves. Our experiences can differ, our emotions can differ, and our mindsets can differ but we are no less than anyone else.

The Lingering

My Attitude as a Muslim

Earlier this week, I stumbled upon an incident that made me step back and remind myself how I wish to be treated in this world and how I would like to be known before my passing.

Ramadhan Diary ~ Day Five: Children

Loving one child is like loving an entire generation. —– As I sat beside a little girl’s bed, I looked around. Right there and then at the hospital, I realized how a mother worries, I realized how a child struggles, I realized how long an hour was, and I realized how truly grateful I should be for my body, mind, and heart. I also realized how significant … Continue reading Ramadhan Diary ~ Day Five: Children
