The Good Muslim..

Sometimes, Amexa writes.

Hi everybody,

The biweekly posts don’t seem to be working. My last post was a month ago. I’m sorry, I really am…  Uni is taking over my life BUT I’m going to try a little harder to be more consistent.

Today’s post is going to be quite short. A couple of weeks ago,  while having a conversation with my housemate in the kitchen, my prayer alarm rang on my phone. I excused myself and left to go observe my prayer. When I was done with my prayer, I went back down to the kitchen. When she saw me come down, she called me a ‘good Muslim’. She compared me to her friend who was not a ‘good Muslim’. Her friend, who is a Muslim, doesn’t wear the hijab like I do and she does not excuse herself to go pray as soon as the prayer is called.

My first instinct was…

11 Dreams Killers and How to Overcome Them

Leila Khalil

We all have dreams.

Achieving ones dreams is somewhat equivalent to fulfilling ones purpose in life which would in turn lead to overall happiness; a sense of fulfilment. The opposite may potentially lead to depression and sadness.

The thing is we all have ideas which eventually lead to goals we must achieve to fulfil our dreams. Some of us succeed while others don’t, why? One’s ability to identify dream killers and overcome them will determine if they will succeed or not.

Dream killers may be internal or external.

Internal in the sense that it’s just between you and your dreams anything apart from this is regarded as external.


  1. Fear

Fear of failure, rejection, change and loss. Thinking too much about what if it doesn’t work out, what if this and what if that, is detrimental to attaining your goal. Fear is unavoidable, so acknowledging the fact that…

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.

I am…

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…
