.بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Kind.


حَلَلْتَ أَهْلاً، وَوَطِئْتَ سَهْلاً*.

Welcome to ‘Journey to the Heart of Islam’.

I’m your host, Sadia, i.e. Mohamed Salah’s sister.

In Islam.

I am a Muslim woman who loves learning about Islam, and about people, and about this fascinating world/universe all around us.

I’m also, AlhamduliLlah, a student at the Cambridge Muslim College, and a teacher at the Cambridge Central Masjid. I love writing, and hope to use this blog as a sort of journal.

I like to write random articles here and there, ‘people pieces’ about individuals, and poems sometimes…

*”You have descended upon your own people/family, and you have stepped on your own dwelled land”;

“May you arrive as part of the family, and tread an easy path as you enter.”

A welcome: for a Musim, Islam –

wherever one may be spatially

– in our hearts, is home.

[Note: I’ve been using individual Arabic letters (i.e. their initials) to represent different people, at times.]

I hope you enjoy your stay here;

Happy travels, In Shaa Allah…
