  • Who Am I?
    1May 2015

    Who Am I?

    A question many of us may have asked from time to time, especially whilst growing up. I remember actually writing a poem called ‘Brit ”ish”’ many years ago to describe how I felt then. Despite being born and brought up in England I was conscious of being “different” in terms of my religion and skin […]

  • I want I want!
    27Mar 2015

    I want I want!

    Sounds familiar? Many kids often plead with their parents about what they want; in the past it was toys and now it’s usually more expensive gadgets such as the latest phone etc. As adults, we also sometimes give in to impulses and buy things well beyond our means, perhaps a very expensive car or items […]

  • Child Pressure
    20Mar 2015

    Child Pressure

    One of the common expectations, if not the most common, of newly married couples is that they will have a child early on in their marriage.  Of course for some couples this does happen, I know of a couple who were married for only a few months before announcing they were expecting a child. But […]

  • Will you be a hero today?

    Will you be a hero today?

    “..And whoever saves one life, it is as if he has saved the whole of mankind..” – The Holy Quran 5:32 Walking towards the NHS Blood donation center under the heavy ‘typically London’ rain, a mixture of excitement, nerves and butterflies flutter in the pit of my stomach. Adrenaline is rushing through my veins, my spirits […]

  • We need to thank Allah for the amazing gift of the Human body

    We need to thank Allah for the amazing gift of the Human body

    “Then We made the sperm into a clot of congealed blood; then of that clot We made a (foetus) lump; then we made out of that lump bones and clothed the bones with flesh; then we developed out of it another creature. So blessed be Allah, the best to create!” – The Holy Qur’an 23:14 The above […]

    IHBDC annual committee day 2015

    On a cold Saturday morning, 22 people travelled from far and wide to meet at Idara-e-Jaaferiya mosque in Tooting, South London, for the Annual Committee Meeting of the IUS IHBDC. Amongst the crowd was Aimen Al-Diwani, the head of this campaign and Ali Jaffri, who was another prolific member of the committee. As it was […]

  • Screens, screens everywhere!
    26Jan 2015

    Screens, screens everywhere!

    When I was 15 years old, I got my first mobile phone. At the time it couldn’t do much.  Since then, mobile phones have come a long way and so has our relationship with them. These devices can save us a lot of time, such as searching for information or shopping . However, they can […]

  • Emotional satisfaction in long-term marriage
    15Oct 2012

    Emotional satisfaction in long-term marriage

    The concept of emotional satisfaction in a generation of advanced technology and the internet has resulted in complex understandings and definitions of satisfaction. This article will focus on satisfaction in long-term marriage, based on my thesis for MSc Psychology. To define and understand the concept of satisfaction in marriage, I searched and interviewed women who […]

  • Keep a cool head when your child is lying
    27Jul 2012

    Keep a cool head when your child is lying

    Children are supposed to be innocent. You appreciate their gentle nature, sweet smiles and generosity but then comes their first lie. It stuns you since you know your child is so young and you can see how obvious the lie is. If your child is young, you should not be worried. Your young one isn’t […]

  • An open reading on Islamic women
    18May 2012

    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 […]
