I started Muslimah Mind Matters to encourage Muslimahs across the world to practise self-care strategies to let go off negative thought and behaviour patterns.
I have had a childhood which was embroiled in sexual abuse, alcohol and domestic violence and terrible acts of immorality by those I trusted. Later, my first marriage was also revolving around these same patterns of abuse and violence.
In 2010 when I was diagnosed with a brain tumour I began to question my purpose and why all these things were happening to me. In 2011 I finally had the courage to leave my violent marriage and start a new life in Brisbane, Australia, with my daughter.
With $2 in my account, a tumour the size of a golf ball in my brain, no support from my own kin, no home of our own in Brisbane for 2 months and a daughter aged 8, the only thing left for me to do was completely surrender and ask my creator to show me the light…give me an answer…
Alhumdolillah…a voice in my head said…It is time to become a Muslim…on 24th Feb 2012 my daughter and I embraced Islam. Immediately, I was disowned by my kin.
Life continued…there were countless struggles as a new Muslimah.
Alhumdolillah… I realised very early on that our minds have unlimited potential and we need only and only to rely on Almighty Allah for ways to become better in all areas of wellbeing.
I came from a terrible environment and I believe Allah blessed me with the attitude of an eternal optimist. I choose only gratitude and positive thoughts.
I also coach Muslimahs on how to become aware of negativity…because with self-awareness comes transformation. There was a time when I was an alcohol abuser, a smoker, used foul language, displayed aggression and violence, and suffered from depression and suicidal tendencies. If I can overcome such tragic behaviours, anyone can.
