What Speaking At The Discovery Talk Show Taught Me About The Importance Of Creating Our Own Platforms

"Start where you are."

2019 – Moments, Reflections and Milestones

January 2019

Thanks to Hafsah Dabiri, I kicked off the year with speaking on a panel at The Discovery Talk Show. It was a day to remember, filled with soulful conversations that left me feeling motivated! It was also the first time I got to meet quite a few people I interact with online (like this powerhouse right here- @themunaranger), offline.

Quite often the contribution and presence of Black Muslims are missing in events of this nature in the UK. And I’m really happy and proud that Hafsah created her own platform and organised an event that brought so many of us together Alhamdulilah. You can buy tickets to the 2020 show here and I promise you, missing out isn’t an option!

In January, I also wrote one of my favourite pieces on myrihla titled “My Daughter’s Name” which was about the importance of internalising Allah’s love. If you haven’t read it yet, do check it out.

I want to leave you all with this gem from one of my favourite podcasts, the Heart work series by AbdelRahman Murphy:

“All praise belongs to Allah because He is the one that has blessed us with the resources to do whatever people are praising us for.”

I pray that you benefitted from this post and I would love to hear your thoughts in the comment section. Subscribe via email for exclusive content and new post notifications. Listen to my podcast Bookversations here.
