Let's Talk Lifestyle Mental Health

My Interview With Muslimah Lifestyle Hub – We Talk Mental Health, My Blogging Journey and What It Means To Be Successful

Recently I had an interview with Muslimah Lifestyle Hub  where I talked about my passion for mental health, my blogging journey so far and what it means to be successful.

Muslimah Lifestyle Hub is a platform for Muslim sisters to connect through their stories. Their vision is to build a community of Muslims sisters connected through the power of story telling, self care and giving. Their aim is to build a platform that inspires Muslim sisters to embrace themselves, put their trust in Allah SWT and be better version of themselves.

Below is an extract from the interview.

MLH: How will you advise a young woman dealing with mental illness?

I would say don’t view your illness as a punishment from Allah. Dealing with mental illness is challenging enough without the added self-denigration of feeling like it Is a punishment. Don’t be afraid to seek help, it Is what Allah wants for you.

See it as an opportunity as well- to heal, to know yourself better, and to develop a more intimate relationship with Allah (S).

MLH: What will you say to a young Muslimah who wants to delve into the world of blogging?

I am a big advocate for the importance of storytelling. I strongly believe that we all have things to learn from each other. I would say to a young Muslimah who wants to delve into blogging that their story matters and it gives them an incredible opportunity to be of service not only to Muslims but to the world.

There is never a right time to start, so I would encourage people to go for it. Blogging tends to be a learn as you go occupation.
