Effulgent Muslimah is a project designed to support, motivate and encourage Muslim women to step forward in their lives with confidence. Some info about me:
There are many women who want to do more with their lives; they want to be better Muslimahs, wives, daughters, mothers, friends; they want to have an occupation that suits their character and abilities; they want to cope better with the changes that happen in their lives, but there is something stopping them.
“Give the world The Best you have,
and The Best will come to you.”

The saying 'one good turn deserves another' - which means 'one act of kindness should be paid back by another act of kindness' - has truth in it.
But what we begin to realise is that the Kindness may not come from the person we were kind to, but will come from other people.
All part of the Grand Plan of our Creator.
As a Muslim, the trauma of our time weighs heavily on my heart. How to respond? What to say? I don't know. All I know is what I feel. So I made this film.

[06/29/15] “Be mindful of Allah, and He will protect you. Be mindful of Allah, and you will find Him facing you. If you ask, then ask of Allah. If you seek aid, then seek aid in Allah. Know that if the entire Ummah were to gather in order to benefit you with something, they could not benefit you with anything except with that which Allah has written for you. And if the entire Ummah were to gather in order to harm you with something, they could not harm you with anything except with what Allah has written against you. The pen has been lifted and the pages have dried.” -at-Tirmidhi Hadith Hasan Sahih

Blessed Sha'ban greetings to fellow Muslims :)
Here's some advice from the Habib Umar bin Hafiz (may Allah preserve him and benefit us by him) on one of the greatest nights of the year:
muwasala.org The Fifteenth Night of Sha`ban, known in Arabic as Laylat al-Nisf min Sha`ban, literally “the eve of the middle day of Sha`ban,” is one of the greatest nights of the year. (In Islam the night precedes the day so really it is the night before the fifteenth day of Sha`ban.) `Ata’ bin Yasar said that a…

“The Most Beautiful People we have known are those who have known Defeat, known Suffering, known Struggle, known Loss, and have found their way Out of the depths.
These persons have an Appreciation, a Sensitivity, and an Understanding of Life that fills them with Compassion, Gentleness, and a Deep Loving concern.
Beautiful people do not just happen.” ~ Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

"Success depends on getting good at saying No without feeling guilty.
You cannot get ahead with your own goals if you are always saying yes to someone else’s projects. You can only get ahead with your desired lifestyle if you are focused on the things that will produce that lifestyle.
You will have to structure your work and life so that you are focusing your Time, Effort, Energies, and Resources only on projects, opportunities, and people that give you a huge return on your efforts.
You are going to have to create stronger boundaries about what you will and won't do." ~ Jack Canfield
