How many kids go to school with a smile returning home with frowns, tears, or marks from being hit at school? No kid deserves this! Parents need to be […]

Before I get to the post, I want to apologise for not posting regularly lately. I have been quite busy, with a little bundle of joy on the way and having a gazillion things to do, okay that one is exaggerated a bit 🙂 So without further ramblings, lets get to todays post on what makes a great […]

Knowing How to Speak

Posted in Social Etiquette, Social Issues, Uncategorized | No Comments

Okay we all have those occasional moments when we blurt things out without thinking, but sometimes the consequences of that action can have dire results. It is certainly easier said than done, but we need to know how to speak, whether at work, at home or in any type of social environment. I’ve encountered many […]

Suicide & Depression

  Are you feeling down or suffering from depression? Have you ever thought about suicide? Experts say 1 in 6 people think of suicide.

Poverty knows no race, no language and is not isolated to one country alone. It is in the most remote of villages and even in the most developed of cities worldwide. Poverty can be barely meeting ends meet, being up to your ear’s in debt and not being able to pay the bills, and it […]

London and surrounding cities are in utter chaos. There is mass looting, setting fires, muggings, and violence ravaging the city. Approximately 1500 people have been arrested so far.

Somalia: Lost Faces

Posted in Canada, Muslims, Saudi Arabia, Social Issues, Uncategorized, USA | No Comments

  I cannot express in words how horrifying and difficult it must be for the people of Somalia while they endure this famine. Today I am fasting, and I am really thirsty right now. Imagine how they feel. People are walking to neighbouring countries in search of food and water, sometimes never meeting their destination. […]

We all have to deal with change. Change is inevitable and is a natural part of life. It can be growing older, moving to a new home (city or country), being diagnosed with cancer, staying up-to-date with technological advancements, death in the family, birth of a child, marriage, divorce, starting a new job, being laid-off […]

Under the Veil

Posted in Canada, Muslims, Social Issues, Uncategorized, USA | No Comments

People often do not see the person under the veil, all they can see is the cloth that covers you. Ever since veiling since my conversion to Islam I have noticed the difference in the way people deal with me.
