I LOVED IT!

The first time I tried Latte, I was in awe. The sweet, the bitter and the kick. I loved it. I couldn’t say it out loud of course.

But it imprinted on me. I was out, lunch with my favorite Nans. We chose a cosy little café in the heart…

let it be known that this particular cup is completely empty.

some days I journal with finesse, I refine my thoughts and attempt to sound very Ibn Qayyim [R]. today is one of those days, indulge me.

NOTHING HERE YET 💬

if you are here, it is likely you stumbled upon my announcement on twitter. or instagram maybe? well, there’s nothing here yet.

but since you have taken a chance on me, let me attempt to make it worth your while.

after all,

i’ve been spending A LOT of time on clubhouse, alhamdulillah. time very well spent, alhamdulillah. there, i was fortunate to make acquaintance of sisters who, my friend and sister (and I feel very proud to be able to claim her) — J has tagged the “Jannah Squad”.

NOTE TO SELF: write about the Jannah squad, soon.

goals, no? alhamdulillah.

that is not where the story begins, but this is the inciting incident — the bit that set this endeavor* in motion.

*this is a commitment — to (and for) Allah, to (and for) myself, to (and for) my daughter and to (and for) my community.

this journey

— of self exploration,

— of attempting to live more intentionally,

— of filling this emptied-out jar,

— of pouring (some of it) in this space,

this journey is not a new story, it’s a continuation of the existing story — these chapters are simply written more boldly. they read with more cadence. they tell deeper truths and cut more deeply. because, i dare —

in the name of Allah, in the beginning, before whom there was nothing; in the end, after whom there is nothing; and by…

Fatimah M.
