when a woman knows her worth there is nothing that can stop her from achieving. She knows success is already hers. She knows that God fashioned her in the best of forms. She is persistent and devoted to being the best she can be in this short-term life. She knows the hereafter is her eternal abode and she wants nothing but the approval of her lord and a place in paradise.
Three years ago, I self-published “she knows her worth” as a gift of positivity to women of all nations, races and religions. As an African American Muslim woman, I Know greatly what is feels like to be left out of the “cool crowd” or what society deems as cool. I know what it’s like to be treated like an outcast. But faith and trust in my lord has brought me this far and will continue to bring me to the top. My message is for woman to value themselves, to realize that they are more than just their bodies. A woman is God’s gift to this earth. Know your worth!
above all I am grateful. Thankful that I have made it this far in my life without giving up. The strength it takes to carry on is unexplainable. But above all I am grateful, it all could have been worse. When life throws you continuous blows, but you have a mustard seed of faith within your soul everything is possible. Never will I allow myself to give up, seeing that this life is temporary. The glory is with God. The power is with God. The final success is with God. All praise to the almighty.
Ramadan day 15. It felt like it just came yesterday. I am so not ready for it to be over. I love the fast, the ambition, focus and dedication it has given me to myself, my lord and Religion. 15 days ago I was not in the mental state I am in now, I feel so at peace and clear of all negative energy. I am eager for the next 15 days and want to indulge in every second and minute of it without any distractions. The mercy of this month is so beautiful, I can physically feel it in every aspect. Ramadan always comes at the right time. I am truly thankful to be experiencing this Ramadan of 2022. God is truly great and merciful.
those who believe and whose hearts find comfort in the remembrance of Allah. Surely in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find comfort. Sura 13 Ayat 28 of the Holy Quran
It is one of the best days of the week. Not to mention in the beautiful and sacred month of Ramadan. Talk about triple blessings!. SO thankful to the almighty for allowing me to see this beautiful month. I enjoyed the company of the believers while we fast and listened to the beautiful khutbah (Lecture). So much many wonderful things were discussed during the lecture. One being the importance of the Quran, abstaining from worldly affairs, music, bad speech even after a day of fasting. This month is the 9month in the Islamic calendar, and can be compared to rebirth of self.
Ramadan always come at the right time. Just when God knows the soul needs it. I thank the almighty for allowing me the honor to see the first Friday in the blessed month of Ramadan. Stay loved and focused God willing 25 more days to Go, and I am ready for every second of it!
Three of my latest art pieces. I’ve been in my own world lately, I am thankful for my ability to paint and create. Being an artist is one of the best things anyone can be. Art brings about a mood of serenity art brightens up dark days, just looking at a beautiful image/piece of art can really make a difference in your world. you don’t have to be a professional to paint. That is the beauty of art. Art can be as great as just a dot and as great as a full detailed portrait. Art is art the beauty is in the eye of the beholder when it comes to art. I can greatly appreciate that. What i consider a masterpiece can be viewed as a monstrosity to another. so, I love art it brings me joy, hope and serinity.
There is nothing more special to me than Eid. To fast and seek forgiveness, make dua and than to follow by an incredible day spent with family and friends. Nothing could possibly be better. This is the second eid this year. The first Eid was after the 30 days of Ramadan and this eid is after the 10 powerful days of Dhul- Hijr when pilgrims make hajj in Makka. One of the others things i love about eid is being a henna artist and doing henna for customers. Henna is like an Eid necessity. Beautify your body with designs is such an amazing thing to do for the Eid celebration. Despite all the craziness going on in the world of 2020 I thank Allah i got the chance to see a blessed eid.
This is a pic of me in which i did my own henna(on both hand). I guess i’m pretty ambidextrous when it comes to doing henna.
Henna is something i love and enjoy, I have been this art for over 10 years and thank God for blessing me to be an amazing artist.

Someone needs to hear these powerful words today. You are loved! There is so much going on in the world right now as of 2020, but you must keep in mind that there will be dark days before there are days of joy. Stop putting yourself down, doubting and succumbing to those negative thoughts. Life is hard and all of us will experience hardship, those who make it are the ones who are hopeful and trust in God. Don’t ever for a second think that you are not important or you are not good enough. If that was the case you would have never been created. God loves you, and there are people in the world who love you. The answers are within your soul. Find who you are and fall in love with the person God created you to be, because God did not make any mistakes when he made you.
I am still learning to love myself . The journey will be long, but I have faith that one day i feel i will love myself unconditionally. I practice everyday b y waking up praying and thanking god for giving me another day. I look in the mirror and smile and say things to uplift myself and set my mind up for success. Part of the process of loving yourself is instilling those positive thoughts. In all, take your time and find your peace. Talk to God and pray for guidance. Pray for your heart to be opened to love yourself unconditionally.
Poem: “Just a little love”
just a little love is all it takes.
just a little love to ease the pain and mend the heart.
all you need is a little love to know your worth.
so learn to love.
learn to smile.
learn to hope even when it seems impossible.
all you need is a little love. Just a little love to get by.
