About Me

I am a  Muslimah and a  revert to Islam from  Christianity.   Masha’Allah it’s been quite a journey

Becoming a Muslim has changed my perspective on a range of things and I am hoping that this will become a way of expressing  the way I am  looking at life, love, the world and my faith  and I welcome those who are sharing this journey with me.

I wrote the first blog entries over a period of two years  on a forum blog I used to be an administrator on. Some of you may recognize the posts  and know at least a little of the story behind them.    For me,  they are constant reminder of how often we look back and see the khair  (good) in something, that when we are going through it..  we can only see the  sadness, the pain, the heartache..

This blog is for me like a weaving.  When I am going through the experiences of my life, good and bad, its like I am seeing the underside of a weaving.. with it’s loose threads and tangles…    Yet as  I look back and read,  I see what Allah SWT my Lord has always seen..   the threads in their finished and most beautiful tapestry state..  the picture complete.

Or to put it in an Islamic way..

” Abu al-‘Abbas ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas reported: One day
I was behind the Prophet  and he said to me:

“O young man, I shall teach you some words [of advice] : Be mindful of Allah, and Allah will protect you. Be mindful of Allah, and you will find Him in front of you. If you (have need to) ask, ask of Allah; and if you seek help, seek help from Allah. Know that even if the Nation (or the whole community) were to gather together to benefit you with something, they would not benefit you with anything except that which Allah has already recorded for you, and that if they gather together to harm you with something, they would not be able to harm you with anything except that which Allah has already recorded against you. The pens have been lifted and the pages have dried.”

[Al-Tirmidhi)

May Allah SWT bless you all

ameen

    your brother Nurhussen.

    • Wa alaikum salaam brother Nurhussen.

      May Allah reward you for your comments and kind offer of ebooks. Al Hamdulillah. Islam is such a wonderful and peaceful religion. It teaches us to be the best of all people, yet sadly it’s not the picture the world sees today when they look at the religion and it’s people.

      Insha’Allah my reflections can in some small way help to show that this is the perfect way to worship the Creator. He is as we see Him.. and when we bow in submission to Him, we acknowledge the very thing we were created to do.. to worship Him and Him alone without equal.

      I do apologize for taking a few days to reply to you. I have only just found your request. I can’t find my post in that thread, but are you wanting some of the advertised brochures? They are readily available here in Melbourne and if you are able to send me some contact details insha’Allah I can contact the organisation that writes and distributes them here and insha’Allah we can organise some for you.

      Please do let me know at jamilahg@gmail.com

      May Allah bless and reward your dawah efforts with success

      ameen

  2. Asalamu Alaykum sis. I read a post from Ummah forums where you said you are working on starting an online company with your husband. I really want to work with you if possible. I am an English speaker and I am going to school to be a teacher. I have excellent computer skills. I would like to send you a resume inshallah if you could give me an email. Jazakallahu Khayran
