The Truth About Today’s So-Called “Islamic-Fiction”

Hey everyone! Today’s post is extremely long-awaited (for me, anyways). I’ve always talked about Islamic-fiction on my blog and how much it means to me, but I have also talked about how much the so-called “Islamic-fiction” books these days have left me so disappointed. So in this post, I’m going to be going into detail as to why that is so.

RAMADAN TBR!!! | Books To Read This Ramadan

Asalamualaikum/hello everyone – Ramadan Mubarak!!! I hope you have all been having a blessed Ramadan under lockdown, and are making the most of this very different Ramadan, where we have more time to devote ourselves to more personal and individual forms of worship than praying in the mosque with everyone else and the communal iftaars that everyone loves.

Today I’m doing a post I haven’t done in months which is a TBR post!! I really wanted to do this before Ramadan started but here we are. For Muslims, a lot of the time when people think about Ramadan they think fasting, praying and even duaa. But reading Islamic books is also a really important factor because that is gaining Islamic knowledge which is also a form of ibaadah (worship).

Islamic Perspective on Dealing with COVID-19 | For Muslims

Asalamualaikum (meaning in Arabic: peace be onto you) my fellow Muslim readers. I’m sure we’re all now fully aware of the international crisis that is going on at the moment. Things like global pandemics don’t happen often, and as Muslims, since we observe Islam as the centre of our lives, I think it’s important that we should look at things like this and see what we can learn from them – as well as observing the necessary Islamic protection (in the form of duaas).

Reflection, the news

What Has COVID19 Taught Us? | Reflection

Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog. I know it’s been dead for a while – I have been working on some posts and it’s taking some time. I’m focusing more on prioritising quality over quantity with my posts, which is why you might not hear from me as often as before.

It would be impossible not to address the current situation on my (previously mostly bookish… but that’s changing!) blog, and I really want to take this opportunity to just reflect on the many things that COVID19 has shown us and taught us, and what we can then learn from that and change in our everyday lives.

Hi there!

It has been such a long time since I last posted on here… I’m kind of ashamed. Although, in my defence, A Levels have really taken the life away from me and I have barely had time to breathe. I used to homeschool, so now that I’m in school I actually have no more free time and all I do when I get home is eat, do homework, sleep and then repeat (weekends are no better).

But now the UK along with the rest of the world have all experienced an unprecedented break from everyday life which has freed some time for me to come on here again. I kept meaning to update my blog, and evolve the content from books to life (since my priorities have shifted from less books and more towards pursuing life goals).

Favourite Online Islamic-Fiction! | Amazing Islamic-Fiction that you can read for FREE

I always talk about Islamic-fiction… or try to, anyway, since it’s something verrryyyy important to me – and despite this, I fully understand that the majority of my readers may be completely inexperienced with the type of Islamic-fiction that I love and want more of, instead of the more mainstream books termed as being “Islamic-fiction” when actually there couldn’t be a bigger contradiction. However, I also realise that not everyone can afford to broaden their horizons when it comes to purchasing books, so I thought offering online options would give people more of an opportunity to explore – and I just generally have some amazing Islamic-fiction recommendations that just so happen to be online (since I’d be fully prepared to pay for this stuff too tbh)!!!

Updating My ‘About’ Page

Asalamualaikum or hello, it’s been a very long time since I posted on this blog and I am very sorry. School hit me like a train of bricks (is that the expression???) and now that it’s the winter holidays I finally have time to regain myself and sort this blog out. I know if you wanted to see my ‘About’ page you could just click onto it and I didn’t need to make a whole post about it, but I wanted to put a spotlight on it because I think it will give my readers more of an idea of what’s happening next.

Attitude Towards Books + Reading in the Book Blogging Community | Right or Wrong?

Hello everyone, I know it’s been a long time since I properly posted, and my only answer to you is that A Levels have hit me like a bag of bricks and I am reeling. The fact that I am currently writing does not mean that I should be because I have 3 different tests to revise for but let’s not get into that. This subject is something that has been playing on my mind for quite some time, and is also part of the reason as to why I have been so absent.
