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).
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.
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).
