A Wee World of Words

In ALIGNMENT with ISLÂM

Skilful White Clouds

Behind the Name & This Website

My Arabic name Rabab Maher means Skilful (Maher) White Clouds (Rabab), hence the domain and website name.

This website is an eclectic, contrarian, colourful and candid wee world revolved around ♡ Islâm ♡, character, choice, clarity, conscientiousness, consciousness and creativity.

Skilful White Clouds stemmed from a dare between me and my hubby, which I “lost”, giving birth to this site, launched on 11.11.11 with a completely different intention but it is evolving in a different direction الْحَمْدُ لله.

What you will find dear valued reader on this little nook online for now are as follows:

Poetry, articles, reviews, quotations and artwork by yours truly;

Words by and about my saving grace, my late dad Maher Abdullah رحمه الله;

Salvaged photography by my inspiration, my late brother Osama Maher رحمه الله.

Snippets of what you will glimpse in my writings إِنْ شَاءَ ٱللَٰه:

01


Poetry

Conscientious, conscious and creative poetic bleedings and glimpses flowing from the heart.

02


Articles

Captured persistent (and sometimes relentless) ideas, learnings, ponderings, reflections and thoughts incessantly floating in my mind.

03


Reviews

~ satisfying the critic in me: The occasional book review, an amalgamation of two of my loves, reading and writing, into one. Objective assessments of books that left an impression or touched on a crucial subject for readers to experience my journey when I read the book. Product reviews are also included.

04


quotations

Concise and succinct snippets of thoughts, reflections, ponderings, learnings and ideas.

Due to my ongoing eclectic experience, I amalgamate all that I have learned – and continue to learn – into my writings إِنْ شَاءَ ٱللَٰه as a:

01


curious Creative

Expressing myself predominantly as a writer and poet on this website.

FUNCTIONAL FRAMEWORK:

A functional-aholic, “obsessed” with all things simple and functional in an intentional, mindful, purposeful and creative way be it learning, fuss free food, form, focus, flow, flexibility and fitness (I love alliterations).

02


clarity coach

Sharing about practical planning with deliberate dedication and creating healing habits with consistent commitment.

Five areas of focus are the spending of time, health, energy, gained money, and gained knowledge and skills, at a physiological (bodily functions), psycho-emotional (heart, brain and mind) and physical (environment) level.

03


mindful hearT mentor

Shifting personal narratives and reframing life stories whilst emphasising reflective listening, talking and implementation, graceful self-growth and ageing, and energy and heart healing guidance.

I believe in prevention over treatment, – ‘A dirham of prevention is better than a wealth of cure.’ – possibility over hope, dancing with discomfort, embracing fear and gracious gratitude over complaints (a luxury in and of itself).

04


eco-conscious AromArtisan™️

Qur’ânic and Prophetic healing, nourishment and medicine, simple and natural hormone-balancing (regenerative) whole earth aromatics, and ethically raised and sourced creations, as well as ecotherapy, – blessings and bounties from ALLÂH – in harmony with one’s own individual and unique constitution, whilst taking self-responsibility.

Aromatherapy, botanicals, essential oils, perfumery, skincare, smoothies, nutrition, juicing, herbal medicine (aroma) formulation (artisan).


In a Nutshell

To enlighten minds to gain clarity so they commit to consistent healing choices for themselves, others and all of creation inshâ’Allâh.
