Is it just awards season or something?

Salaam all!

So, I have been nominated for yet another award, the Sunshine Blogger Award.

Unfortunately, I don’t really have the bandwidth or brain power these days to participate fully, answering all the questions and making up my own, plus my limited circle of blogs that I follow have all either been nominated for this one already, or they have just been nominated by me for my last award.

I did, however, just want to write a quick post to thank both of the amazing sisters who nominated me, and encourage you strongly to go have a look at their sites! So a hearty thank you and jazakum Allahu khairan to Shukrallahblog and the Scottish Muslimah!

Both are amazing, beautifully written, and inspiring blogs, run by equally lovely and kind sisters. Ma shaa Allah!

At any rate, thank you both again for the nomination, and apologies that I haven’t participated in the awards to the fullest. Everyone, please do go have a look at their blogs!


The Blog-aholic Award


So, I was nominated for another award, thanks to the amazing Shukrallahblog! Jazakum Allahu khairan to her for such a kind thought!

So, for those of you, like me, who have never heard of it, the Blog-aholic Award is “an award for bloggers addicted to blogging with creative, ingenious and inspring posts. They mesmerize their followers with their posts, keep them captivated and riveted to their blog. The Blog-aholic Award is also for bloggers who share and inspire others.”

My Best Post:

Ummmmm, I don’t really know! As far as things for converts go, I really loved writing ‘On Being Yourself,’ and it seemed to have a very good reception, but in general I also enjoy writing all of my women’s issues type posts…

Three Facts About Me:

  1. My go-to random fact about myself: I have a serious phobia of fish.
  2. I have a BA in Language Studies and an MA in Translation.
  3. My favourite colour is grey, but I tell people that my favourite colour is lavender because it is my seond favourite, and because they always tell me that grey isn’t a colour.

My Nominations:

This one is much less strict that the Liebster on who you nominate, so I appreciate that (though the blog that nominated me already stole some of my faves!) As always, you totally don’t have to participate if you don’t want to!

  2. Life of a Muslim Revert
  3. Scottish Muslimah

Salaam everyone, and welcome to Muslimah According to Me! This is where I share my experiences and reflections as an American convert to Islam, and I strive to make this a place for converts, born-Muslims, and non-Muslims alike to come for open and honest discussion. And hopefully learning a little something new!

If you are a new Muslim, make sure to check out my resources page,  where I share books, articles, videos and other resources that I myself found very helpful on my journey to Islam. And if you are ever in need of some support, someone who has been there and can lend an ear, or just have some questions for me, feel free to drop comments on any of my articles, or head over to the contact form for a more private discussion!

To get you started, you can go check out some of these popular posts here, here and here. And to learn more about me personally, head over to my about page.
