Hard Hearts

I watched those awful videos of angry people on buses cursing, swearing and humiliating Muslims. The woman that wanted to kick the pregnant lady. The man who threw the old mans walker out of the bus.

Have you noticed that cranky, negative and angry people are cranky and negative and angry all the time?

How you do one thing is how you do everything.

The Prophet SAAS was kind with everyone — even his enemies.

Sad people are sad in all areas of their lives.
Happy people are happy in all areas of their lives.
Abrasive people are abrasive in all areas of their lives.

Once the bus stopped — those people went home.
The victims were bruised emotionally and mentally. They will feel sore for a short while.
Think about the perpetrators– think about their families. Their co-workers. Their circles. Their children.

Why do I ask such a question?
Because they are cranky, negative and angry all the time.
They live with that hate inside of them.

Stay soft
Stay gentle
Stay loving
Allah loves soft hearts.

When Allah wants something bad for you – HE will harden your heart.


Make Space For Abundance

Today I’m making way for MORE ABUNDANCE.

I’m purging
giving away
letting go

anything in my closet that is BEAUTIFUL, GORGEOUS and OUTRAGEOUSLY EXPENSIVE ……

and I have NOT WORN in TWO years is being folded up gently and driven over to the Muslim Welfare Centre for Abused Women so they can feel BEAUTIFUL, GORGEOUS and RAVISHING.

I called Sister Afia Siddiqi — she is the manager there and she is expecting me inshaAllah
I feel so good right now


What is your life are you HOLDING ONTO that needs to go?
Physical Things?
Emotional Stuff?

You know exactly what you need to do, don’t you?

DO IT with love, compassion and gratitude

Love, Fatima


Allah made oppression haraam for Him

If Allah made oppression haraam for Himself and He is The King of All Kings, where do we as humans give ourselves the right to oppress another and to oppress ourselves?

Oppression takes place in countries by kings and presidents
Oppression takes place in companies by managers and bosses
Oppression takes place in families by mothers and fathers

if you are being oppressed, abused and humiliated — why do you stay?

do not answer quickly…

… sit and think about your response for a day or two


and find out the answer — the true answer for why you stay

in the meantime, you can listen to this powerful call on DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND ABUSE

Are All Men The Same?

A few years ago I was contacted by some big agencies and organizations who wanted me to be their front spokesperson.

I would represent their values
I would speak to the media
I would do the interviews and answer the questions.

Since I had experienced so much violence and abuse — and then left that situation, rebuild my life and helped my children thrive — I seem to have the tenacity, perseverance and look they wanted.

Everything seemed good

Money was good
Exposure was good
Platform was good.

As I asked more questions and did more research and talked to more people —-
An interesting picture was appearing.

Some of these organizations wanted me to “men-bash” putting them down, hurting men and abusing them.
The problem was — I didn’t feel that way at all. I still don’t. I believe that we are a team. Men and women — working together side-by-side.

One man and his family abused me, violated me and hurt me. That does not mean that all men are bad!!! I refuse to put all men in one bucket and label them with a blanket label.

I’m a loving-god-conscious mother raising four incredible boys who are becoming respectful and kind citizens of the world who respect themselves and respect others.

Many women are hurt by men — so they close their hearts because they are afraid to get hurt again.
There’s only one problem with this — if you close your heart — the bad guys cannot get in and neither can the good guys.

Is that the kind of life you want to live?

Love, Fatima
