    An open reading on Islamic women

    The time of the Prophet (saw) was one where the “might is right” philosophy was the mentality amongst the paternalist and tribal Jahiliyya (pre-Islamic) culture. Such was the backwardness of the people that girls were buried alive[1] and “…when news is brought to one of them, of (the birth of) a female (child), his face […]

    Journey into the Light

    Too often people get caught up in the trivialities of life. William Shakespeare famously wrote “all the worlds’ a stage” and indeed, we go about our daily lives playing our roles and reading our lines as we should. Many times we lose sight of the bigger picture and become swamped with the chores of day […]

Until about two years ago I would have thought little about marking the day or taking time out to reflect on how gender impacts every facet of life.

    Amongst the Holy Five, the only name that existed prior to the advent of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was Fatima (as). Indeed so popular was this name amongst Bani Hashim – one of the wives of Abdul Muttalib was called Fatima as was the wife of Abu Talib – it was only a matter […]

    Get up to speed on fasting

    The Holy Prophet (pbuh) is reported to have said: “Fasting is a protection from the calamities of this world, and a veil from punishment of the next.” When you fast, aim to purify your soul from every sin, darkness, arrogance, pride, greed and heedlessness so that you may know yourself and discover the treasure that […]
