I imagine a future conversation. It goes a little something like this:

Children: Ammu, why are you a Muslim?

Me: Because when I do things to please Allah, I feel happier in my heart & calmer in my mind. Scary things don’t seem THAT scary. And sad things don’t seem THAT sad; I know things will get better.

[There are other reasons why I believe. Thought I’d share this particular reason after reading this comforting ayah.]

About the Author:

Currently a mumpreneur writing and publishing in between trying to nurture two Precious Bees: Rayyan & Ridhwan. I had a career in psychiatry & psychology for many years before heading to Saudi Arabia where I wrote a novel (yet to edit and publish), ran a small food business alongside a fashion business, and had the opportunity to work in a school and teach at a university. Five years later my husband and I headed back to the UK and started our precious family. Creative writing has been a passion since childhood, but it wasn't until having a child of my own that writing Islamic children's books became a mission!
