Do you ever arrive at a blog and think to yourself…well, I am confused… where should I click?
Don’t fear, I am here to help. I am Samira and here at The Muslimah Guide, you get me as your advisor.
Yes ↑ that’s me. A jilbaab wearing, cloud watching, mother of 2 who is obsessed with simplicity, habits and navigating a life with the Quran and Sunnah as a map.
Now that we have that out of the way, Shall I start from the beginning?
I will keep it short, promise.
I started blogging in 2015 and let’s just say I’ve come a long way in the last couple of years, not just as a blogger…but as a mother, wife, and a Muslimah.
I’ve learned that being a stay at home mom is not always fun.
I’m that tired mom trying to keep her composure while listening to her kids argue about who gets the square plate or round big cup for the umpteenth time.
I’ve learned that being a wife is hard and requires work.
Most days I am that wife biting her tongue and pulling her hair.
I’ve learned that balancing it all while trying to keep my duties as a Muslimah requires sacrifices and faith is the only thing keeping me sane.
I am not perfect, far from it.
I have just found ways to make everyday normalcy full of joy and beauty. One way we do this as a family is through living a simple life, one where being content isn’t settling for less than, but being completely and wholly fulfilled.
What Simple Living means to us
- We live a slower more intentional life
- We focus on what’s important
- We take back control of our time and manage it better
- We try to feel balanced
So What’s in it for me
The Muslimah Guide is a virtual space for you to be inspired and to define your own version of living a good and abundant life. Because at the end of the day a more joyful, patient mom means a more peaceful and happy family.
With that said THANK you for allowing me to share my story and grow and for supporting me to continue to use this space as a creative outlet.
I’m truly thankful for everything, alhamdulilaah.
