Welcome to Living The Muslim Life!
We’re glad to have you with us 🙂
The blog is currently taking its first few tentative steps as we begin adding content, but we hope that over time it will inshaAllah become a great resource for those of you out there interested in learning about what it is really like to live life as a Muslim.
While media and other stereotypes about Islam and Muslims abound, we hope to offer you our humble insights and experiences of what life as a Muslim is like from the other side: the perspective of ordinary individuals professing to live by Islam. For a more detailed introduction to the blog head over to our ‘About’ page.
As more content is added and the blog develops inshaAllah, we hope you will find our experiences interesting, helpful and beneficial to read about. If you have a family member who has recently converted to Islam for example, we hope that reading about our experiences will help you to better understand their new faith. If we can overcome any misconceptions or prejudices about Islam through our efforts, alhamdulillah. If we can be of any help to anyone in their journey towards Islam, nothing could make us happier inshaAllah!
Whatever your reasons for finding yourself on our blog, we welcome you. We ask Allah, the Lord of the Heavens, Earth and all that is in between them, to grant you khayr (good). Keep reading and please do post your comments, thoughts and questions as we go along- we would love to hear what you have to say :).
Finally a quick tip:
Many of the italicised, Arabic terms used on this blog can be found on the Key Terms and Expressions page. Perusing that page should make navigating such terms easier inshaAllah.
