In ALIGNMENT with ISLÂM

welcome to

My Colourful Way of Life

A citizen of the earth welcoming you valued reader to an eclectic, contrarian, colourful and candid wee world, my little nook online.

In all our deeds,

the proper value and respect for time

determines success or failure.

MY LIFE PURPOSE:

To unwaveringly obey ALLÂH ﷻ through breathing ISLÂM as the way of life by being, doing, living, loving and dying in complete submission to HIM ﷻ.

{قُلْ إِنَّ صَلَاتِى وَنُسُكِى وَمَحْيَاىَ وَمَمَاتِى لِلَّهِ رَبِّ ٱلْعَـٰلَمِينَ}

{Say, [O Muhammad], ‘Surely my prayer, my sacrifice [offering], my life, and my death are all for Allâh – Lord of all the worlds.’}

(006:162)

MY HIGH CORE VALUES:

For RECONNEXION, REALIGNMENT and REBALANCE

  1. ALLÂH ﷻ 
  2. Salâh, Ruqyah and Du’â
  3. Qur’ânic and Prophetic Healing Heart and Energy Lifestyle

{قُلْ إِن كُنتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ ٱللَّهَ فَٱتَّبِعُونِى يُحْبِبْكُمُ ٱللَّهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ ۗ وَٱللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ}

{Say, [O Muhammad], ‘If you should love Allâh, then follow me, and Allâh will love you and forgive your sins for Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.’}

(03:31)

MY ETHOS ~ ESSE:

The Panacea to ALL that ails our ESSENTIAL NATURE is within us by simply Embodying the ESSENCE of Tawheed, TO BE Muslims, AND Breathe Islâm as a Way of Life, for a Healing Heart until we return to ALLÂH ﷻ.

Fear of God is courage,

worshipping Him is freedom,

humility before Him is dignity,

and knowing Him is certainty.’

The Esteemed Dr Mustafa Mahmoud رحمه الله

MY IKIGAI:

Choosing a conscientious, conscious and creative lifestyle for a resonating heart, energy and character inshâ’Allâh.

In the Timeless Words of Beloved Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, ‘Indeed, there is in the body a bite-size[organ], if mended, the whole body will be healed, and if corrupt then the whole body will be ruined; indeed, it is the heart.

MINI ME ~ AN EMPOWERED EMPATH:

My energy revolves around heart healing and my personal values: graceful self-growth, creative expression and functional learning. I’m all about transparency, congruency, truth, fairness and kindness. 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). I’m also an insatiable bibliophile and otaku.

Every gulp of air that goes out in a cause other than the cause of ALLÂH ﷻ will turn to sorrow and regret on the Day of Judgement.

Imām Ibnul Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah رحمه الله

MY HEART RESONANCE:

Values and core feelings that rebalance and keep me in check to ensure what I invest in (time, energy, health, money, and gained knowledge and skills) allows me to reconnect, realign and refocus with ALL the following to remain true to myself for inner and outer harmony inshâ’Allâh:

PERSONAL VALUES:

  1. Graceful self-growth
  2. Creative expression
  3. Functional learning

MORAL VALUES:

  • Transparency 
  • Congruency
  • Kindness
  • Fairness
  • Truth

ALIGNING FEELINGS:

  • Alignment
  • Clarity
  • Resilient Resonance
  • Sakeena
  • Versatility

MY WHY:

Enlightening mindful hearts (who have a prevention mindset) to gain clarity so they commit to consistent healing choices for themselves, others and all of creation inshâ’Allâh.

In the Timeless Words of Beloved Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, The most beloved of deeds to ALLÂH ﷻ are those that are most consistent, even if small.’

MY TOP 5 HOWs:

HOW I REALISE MY WHY: Functional Framework for an open, receptive and embracing ear, mind and heart.

HEART HEALING:Grasp and embody Ash-Shahâdah for TRUE LOVE to appreciate the ultimate truth, mercy, kindness, gratitude, forgiveness and patience, with unwavering devotion for surrendering freedom and flexibility (heart resiliency).
HONE INTUITION:Assimilate and Implement Istikhâra Prayer for ALL decision-making, before EVERY deed, in ALL areas of life.
ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS:Clarify the fundamentals for a firm (and fuss free) foundation (for flexible flow).
SIMPLIFYING THE COMPLEX:See, assess and breakdown the big picture into small sustainable systems™.
REGENERATE CLARITY:Explore possibilities by discerning the facts, identifying discrepancies and preconceptions, and reframing perspectives and perceptions, for a critical, constructive, neutral and objective mindset shift.
{ثُمَّ جَعَلْنَـٰكُمْ خَلَـٰٓئِفَ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ مِنۢ بَعْدِهِمْ لِنَنظُرَ كَيْفَ تَعْمَلُونَ}

{Then We made you successors in the land after them so that We may observe how you will do.}

(10:14)

MY SPECIALISATION:

Curious Creative: Written and visual expression as a writer, poet and visual artist.

Clarity Coach: Practical purposeful planning with deliberate dedication and creating, enhancing or embedding growth goals, healing boundaries, healing habits™, mindful momentum™, sustainable skills and a commitment canvas™ (a visual representation of the written), with consistent discipline.

Mindful Heart Mentor: Shifting personal narratives and reframing life stories whilst emphasising reflective listening, talking and implementation, graceful self-growth and ageing, energy balance and flow, and heart healing and resiliency guidance. ALCHEMISING EMOTIONS by loving the inner child, confronting the ego, integrating the shadow self, learning from unpleasant feelings, and embracing the inner faithful light, with attuned empathy.

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

MY FOCAL FIVE:

Five areas I focus on 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 – avocation, connexions, deeds, earnings, surroundings, vocation) level.

Always asking the following when focussing on the above five spendings to gain further clarity:

Does it bring me closer or further away from ALLÂH ﷻ?

Does it contribute to a healing or unhealing way of life?

Does it enhance or hinder the quality of any life?

Does it create ease or burden for the self or others?

Does it support or disrupt the self, humanity, creations and/or the earth?

Honouring present deeds, experiences and habits through self-witness, -reflection and -inquiry to then encourage deep meaningful change, nourishment, healing, rewiring and transformation for Heart Resiliency, Graceful Self-Growth and Ageing, Creative Expression and Functional Learning.

MY WHAT:

The ways I execute my why and how, illustrating all the above, is expressed so far via the posts shared on this website predominately in writings (articles, poetry, reviews), with more to come inshâ’Allâh, and future works portrayed visually (a wee online nook where my artistic endeavours colourfully make their way into their new abode) using art as a visual means of expression when words do not suffice.

I also conduct private and selective coaching and mentoring for a more preventative care lifestyle, and heart, mind and body resiliency and rewiring.

I am currently in transition delving deeper into my personal values by honing and enhancing my skills be it in self-growth, creative expression and functional learning. Due to my ongoing eclectic experience, I amalgamate all that I have learned – and continue to learn – into the works I do and will do inshâ’Allâh.

Only those who have already experienced a revolution within themselves can reach out effectively to help others.
