Reflect and Refresh – Purify your soul and mind with the teachings of Qur’an

By Suha Mishal The month of forgiveness and mercy is upon us.   This Ramadan, while treating yourself to samosas and chaats, why not also treat your soul. Ramadan is the best time to treat your inner exhausted self to a deep cleanse. Does that seem hard? Worry not, you will find inspiration to do so in this Ayah:   “He has succeeded who purifies the soul, and he has failed who corrupts the soul.” (Quran, 91:9-10)  This success ultimately means success in the...

The Best Version of Me

I recall once while on the road with friends, someone mentioned it was almost Maghreb and she hadn’t completed her evening azkaar yet.

And here this ‘practising Muslimah’ is telling... Continue Reading →
