What I’m Learning (Courage & Love) – August 2017


“In Life, We Get What What We Have The Courage To Ask For.” – Oprah

August has been a beautiful and memorable month Alhamdulillah. One of new experiences, connections and discovery.

I am learning that letting go is hard but there is good to be gained from it.

That every experience I go through, good or bad is there to direct me back to God If I let it.

That inspiration hits in the most unexpected places, to always have a notebook at hand and be thankful for moments of clarity.

I am learning that travelling back in time through my memory and journals can be both painful and exhilarating. To, however, continue to record moments through journaling – probably the most invaluable thing I own at this point. To say yes to new experiences and cherish moments of joy and happiness like watching Saro at the Theatre.

Revert Sisters Speak; Leila Khalil



Salam alykum warahmahtullah wabarakatu

Walaykumu salama wa rahmatulahi wa barakatu (and upon you be peace and mercy and blessings)


My name is Leila Khalil an Igbo Muslim revert based in Lagos.

The Beginning

I’ve been a Muslim for 1 year and 8 months, and Insha Allah I  intend to die in the state of Islam.
My journey started in my first year at the university, though I was still a Christian at the time. My interest in Islam was influenced by the fact that I was in an inter-religious relationship with a Muslim (which ended in my second year). After much research I found out that Islam was the true religion in the sight of God (Quran 3 :19).
Despite knowing this truth, I was still indecisive about reverting to Islam because I was scared of how my family and the society would react (they still don’t know)…

New Bloggers, Blogging and Life

Find Your Middle Ground

blogging and life

I have noticed an interesting phenomenon recently with new bloggers. Perhaps, if you are reading this, then you may have noticed as well. There are flurries of Likes one after an other and then a Follow.

I doubt this new generation has superhuman ability to read so quickly… and it makes me wonder if they are actually reading what is posted, or are simply wanting reciprocation, with multiple likes and a follow. Is the goal to accumulate lots of Likes and Followers, regardless of connection with other bloggers?

It makes me think of my adolescence where there was much self doubt and a craving for validation. If I do this for you, you’ll do this for me. If I like you, you must like me. This, of course, is encouraged in all Social Media.

Perhaps this keeps many people in a state of wondering what others think, and being seen…

Jolted back to reality


The joy that comes forth,
With the babble of an infant,
Can be for a moment cut short,
In a long run or an instant.

To see a child grow,
Prosper and bloom like a rose,
Like the blood in the veins flow,
You hold each memory dear and close.

The hopes and dreams of tomorrow,
You catch a glimpse today,
But it can be shattered in pain and sorrow,
With wisdom scant, words absent to say.

The time can never be foretold,
And it comes at a time only right,
Ransome nor bribe can ease the hold,
When the hand snatches in one might.

So it comes only to the appointed,
Though the visit is but brief,
It does not even excuse the anointed,
As it leaves in its wake, just grief.

Through the wailing and tears,
A big lesson is given to ponder,
Upon which might heighten our fears,

1] Abundance of sincerity in their knowledge and actions.

◾From the morals and manners of the Salaf was their abundant sincerity in their knowledge and actions fearing the presence of vanity (ar-riyaa).

◾Allaah the Most High Said”Is it not to Allaah that sincere religion is due?” (Az-Zumar:3)📘.

◾The Messenger of Allaah ﷺ said: Allaah does not accept any action without it being sincerely devoted to Him and seeking His Face. (An-Nasai) 📘.

🎓Ibraheem At-Taymiy(رحمه الله)

would say: The sincerely devoted one is one who conceals his good deeds like he conceals his bad deeds”

🎓Ash-Sha’bi (رحمه الله) said: “(It is) from the manners of the Scholars that if they know some knowledge, they would practise it. Once they’ve practised that knowledge, they would preoccupy themselves with practice rather than the people. With their preoccupation, their presence among the…
