By taking on these projects to explore elements of my faith and strengthen my understanding of Islam, I am allowing myself to understand the ways in which my faith has always complemented my life despite my resistance, and the ways in which it can guide me.
In my heart of hearts I knew that in this moment, the greatest guidance can only come from Allah, and the best way to access this guidance is through His words in the Qur’an.
When I feel myself straying, even the tiniest amount, this verse catches me out and it's a gentle, but pressing, reminder that simply asks me: where are you going?

In keeping with my theme of gratitude and reflection during this month, I have accumulated 24 lessons to share before I turn 24. I hope that they will be as insightful to you as they have been for me (in hindsight anyway).
I promise you, even the smallest kind gesture makes the world of a difference. You often spend so long brushing your own self under the carpet that even a single kind word makes you glow and radiate in a way you never thought you could.

Ayesha Khanom

Sometimes a teacher, sometimes a student, but mostly caffeinated. This blog is a terrible attempt at writing out my thoughts - think of it as the 'comments, complaints, and suggestions' section of my brain. Nevertheless, I hope that some of these words will find a place in your heart and will stay with you even when I do not. If you'd like to get in touch, send me a message on Instagram or leave a comment on one of these posts and I'll get back to you at the best possible time.

Leaving a Legacy

I’ll admit, it’s a bit of a slippery slope sometimes, and I don’t always know what I’m doing, but that’s the art of living I guess. You never know for sure what is a good or bad thing, you just do the best you can, roll with the punches, and hope that it is enough.

Sadness is not Linear

But, here's the thing about sadness that nobody ever tells you: it is not linear, but neither are you. Like all things in life, it will come and go, and more often not, you will have literally no control over it. 

Be, and it is.

it is around this time every year that I start to get really angsty about everything because I never really anticipate making it through the year. Now, don't get me wrong. I don't mean that in the 'grab a switch blade, we're about to throw ourselves a morbid pity party' kinda way, so y'all better put those thoughts to rest. What I mean is, I am a grossly organised person with a meticulous eye for the little details in life, and despite that, I don't plan very far ahead.
