Dealing With Problems

Dealing With Problem

As a practitioner, lecturer and Tutor, I have the pleasure of interacting with adults from a variety of backgrounds and ages. In almost 30 years of work, the one thing I have noticed that we all have in common is, we all have, ‘problems’. To better understand how I could serve the people I was […]

Evidence of carbon based life from Quran

Evidence of carbon based life from Quran

Do you fancy participating in a poll? You are made of ———- Stardust Diamonds I won’t keep you in this dilemma of choosing between diamonds and the stars for long because both when narrowed down to their composition are made of carbon and so are we, the human beings. This all makes sense if you […]

The Concept Of Fasting Is Not Just Unique To Islam

The Concept Of Fasting Is Not Just Unique To Islam

Intermittent fasting is one of the latest fads and is a buzzword these days. To remove any religious connotation from it, some people like to call it “Scheduled meals”  or a “Pattern of eating.” As a matter of fact, trends such as intermittent fasting, Keto, Atkins diet etc make it evident that fasting is not limited to religions,  let alone to just one religion! Fasting is spread across different spectra of trends, cultures and religions albeit in different […]

Eid_ul_Fitr

Eid ul Fitr

As a child growing up in the ‘70s London, Eid was not a well-known festival outside of the Muslim community, which itself was quite small.1  However, I remember being extremely excited and always waited with anticipation for the day to arrive. I had observed my parents and older members of my family fasting during the month of Ramadan. The period […]

The Essence of Eid ul Fitr

The Essence of Eid ul Fitr

Refraining from food and drink for almost 30 days can seem like an illusion at the end of the journey. Looking beyond this purely physical need allows an individual to be intensely grateful in addition to redirecting one’s attention to the spiritual needs and state of self. Through this execution of self-discipline, one is encouraged to progress […]

To Halal or Not

To Halal or Not

That indeed is the question. For a Muslim, this refers to the consumption of clean and pure food, as required by Islamic dietary laws. This is trivial if one resides in a primarily Islamic country. However, such was not the case in many Western countries. Only during the latter part of the 20th century, due to increased immigration […]


Status of Women in Islam

“He created you from a single being, then of the same kind made its mate.” (39:7)[1] This verse from chapter 39 of the Holy Quran simplifies the centuries long debate: that men and women were created equally, and that they would have equal status in the society in which they coexist. This teaching, and the […]

Homelessness

Homelessness

Homelessness has been an issue affecting the poor and vulnerable in society since time immemorial and continues even today. Ironically, homelessness is no less of a problem in the most economically advanced countries than it is in the poorest nations of the world, making it apparent, that the cause is not so much to do […]


The Importance of Education

Wake up, pack our bags and plug our headphones in to block out the hustle and bustle of the commute to work and school. When Lockdown hit, the endless Zoom calls and constant alarms/reminders to complete tasks became overwhelming for everyone as they entered an online world never experienced before. Teachers worked late hours from […]


Theory of Relativity and Quran

E=mc2 is the most fascinating, complex and intriguing theory of the 20th century and has been the most sought-after topic for Science fiction. In this theory, if described in the simplest of terms, Einstein emphasised the unified entity of space and time, outlined the concept of all motion being relative and time being a dimension, not an absolute quantity.   […]
