Peace and blessing be upon whom ever you claim to be.
Allow me to introduce my self, my name is Amira and I am the newest writer for MuslimInAmerica. I was invited to write for this blog because Br.Subhan felt he needed a bit of a feminine touch to his blog. Well-no, that’s not why, but that is what I shall provide insha’Allah.
I am no ordinary American-Muslimah writer, no. I own a number of blogs hosted on different websites that are mainly geared towards what I think women do best, nurturing, consoling, and comforting the soul. Because Allah knows that is exactly what we need living in this world, especially in America. I’m just here to compliment the wonderful posts that are already on this site with my perspective.
“Those who believe, and whose hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allah, Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.“-Qur’an 13:28
“What actions are most excellent? To gladden the heart of human beings, to feed the hungry, to help the afflicted, to lighten the sorrow of the sorrowful, and to remove the sufferings of the injured.” – The Prophet Muhammad (saw)[Bukhari]
The ayaat and hadith above are the reasons I started my blogs in the first place to to gladden the hearts of human beings and remove the sufferings of the injured by keeping them in the remembrance of Allah. When their hearts have found rest, mine does as well. Right now, I am more than thankful that Allah has given me another outlet to do “actions that are most excellent” with MuslimInAmerica.
In Japanese culture, when working with someone new, people usually say (roughly translated), “Please take care of me”. As in, “Bare with me. I’m new and trying my best” insha’Allah!
