“Muslimah Today is one of the rare Durban events that ladies attend alone and they leave, bonded, as sisters. It is a great start for those who have never attended an event of this calibre, and always on the yearly bucket list for those of us who return year after year. Irrespective of where you are in your life, spiritual or emotional aspirations - Muslimah Today will present you with something to take into your life and enrich it. It is an amazing platform for unity and to grow in sisterhood. Gift yourself something special by attending this year, it will undoubtedly be your first of many to come. Insha'Allah. Wishing the organizers, speakers and all those involved a successful event. They outdo themselves on every level. Hope to see you there!” (Hasina Suliman)

“My eyes were full of tears every time a speaker, spoke - while I videoed or photographed them” (Nabihah Desai-Plaatjes)

“The Muslimah Today conference is the highlight of my calendar. It's time for me to be inspired and meet old friends and make new friends, every moment learning beautiful gems. We are always being introduced to new awesome talented sisters. I cannot put into words how much I look forward for our conference. Love you Fatima for tirelessly striving with Azra and everyone to ensure we are blooming.  Muslimah Today is like Zam Zam to my soul.” (Fahmida Jagot)

“I have attended virtually every single Muslimah Today conference since it was launched and was also invited to speak at one of the sessions. It’s a great networking opportunity, the energy and vibe is awesome and it’s also a safe space for us as Muslimahs to discuss difficult and sensitive issues between us. I always have great conversations with my fellow sisters and catch up with those I have not seen in a while. I highly recommend attending it as it’s a wonderful opportunity to learn and socialise at the same time.”  (Lubna Nadvi)

“Have been to other conferences...Muslimah Today is unique. It’s an authentic, sincere, inspiring, moving space. Keeps it real...and so rewarding.” (Mariam Jhaveri)

“As a young student I look forward to this event every year.  Alhamdulillah, it is such a blessing to be amongst women from different ethnic backgrounds that share a common goal with you and that is to learn, be inspired and motivated. Being a part of this conference is like a little get away from the hassle of life. It's some "me time" to be amongst your sisters, just sit back and relax. Usually people think such conferences are just a money making scheme and is usually boring however I can confidently say that Muslimah Today is NOT one of them. Alhamdulillah the speakers are really interesting.  This is a fantastic initiative, I highly encourage sisters from all walks of life to join us in shaa Allah as well as encourage and bring along the youth as well. It is most definitely an uplifting weekend that will not only touch your heart but your soul as well. Looking forward to seeing some new faces this year.” (Homairah Mohamed)

Food for thought..

❝How strange and foolish is man. He loses his health in gaining wealth. Then, to regain his health he wastes his wealth. He ruins his present while worrying about his future, but weeps in the future by recalling his past. He lives as though death shall never come to him, but dies in a way as if he were never born.❞

― Ali ibn Abi Talib

Why worry?

Gender Equality

The most beautiful answer on GENDER EQUALITY.

Something of topic.

Long article but worth it.


Questioner: Sarah

Reply Date: Apr 24, 2017


On March 18, 2005 Amina Wadud led the first female-led Jumu`ah Prayer. On that day, women took a huge step towards being more like men. But, did we come closer to actualizing our God-given liberation?

Consultant: Yasmin Mogahed


Salam Sarah,

Thank you for your inspiring question!

Well, answering your question, I can say that I don’t think so.

What we so often forget is that God has honored women by giving them value in relation to God—not in relation to men. But as Western feminism erases God from the scene, there is no standard left but men.

As a result, the Western feminist is forced to find her value in relation to a man. And in so doing, she has accepted a faulty assumption. She has accepted that man is the standard, and thus a woman can never be a full human being until she becomes just like a man—the standard.

When a man cut his hair short, she wanted to cut her hair short. When a man joined the army, she wanted to join the army, and so on. She wanted these things for no other reason than because the “standard” had it.

What she didn’t recognize was that God dignifies both men and women in their distinctiveness, not their sameness. And on March 18, Muslim women made the very same mistake.

For 1,400 years, there has been a consensus of scholars that men are to lead prayer. As a Muslim woman, why does this matter? The one who leads prayer is not spiritually superior in any way.

Something is not better just because a man does it. And leading Prayer is not better just because it is leading.

Had it been the role of women or had it been more divine, why wouldn’t the Prophet have asked Lady `A’ishah or Lady Khadijah, or Lady Fatimah—the greatest women of all time—to lead?

These women were promised heaven and yet they never led prayer.

But now, for the first time in 1,400 years, we look at a man leading prayer and we think, “that’s not fair.” We think so, although God has given no special privilege to the one who leads. The imam is no higher in the eyes of God than the one who prays behind him.

On the other hand, only a woman can be a mother. And the Creator has given special privilege to a mother. The Prophet taught us that heaven lies at the feet of mothers. But no matter what a man does, he can never be a mother. So why is that not unfair?

When asked who is most deserving of our kind treatment? The Prophet replied “your mother” three times before saying “your father” only once. Isn’t that sexist? No matter what a man does, he will never be able to have the status of a mother.

And yet even when God honors us with something uniquely feminine, we are too busy trying to find our worth in reference to men, to value it or even notice it. We too have accepted men as the standard; so anything uniquely feminine is, by definition, “inferior”.

Being sensitive is an insult, becoming a mother is a degradation. In the battle between stoic rationality (considered masculine) and selfless compassion (considered feminine), rationality reigns supreme.

As soon as we accept that everything a man has and does is better, all that follows is just a knee jerk reaction: if men have it, we want it too. If men pray in the front rows, we assume this is better, so we want to pray in the front rows too.

If men lead prayer, we assume the imam is closer to God, so we want to lead prayer too.

Somewhere along the line, we’ve accepted the notion that having a position of worldly leadership is some indication of one’s position with God.

A Muslim woman does not need to degrade herself in this way. She has God as a standard. She has God to give her value; she doesn’t need a man here.

In fact, in our crusade to follow men, we, as women, never even stopped to examine the possibility that what we have is better for us. In some cases, we even gave up what was higher only to be like men.

Fifty years ago, we saw men leaving the home to work in factories. We were mothers. And yet, we saw men doing it, so we wanted to do it too. Somehow, we considered it women’s liberation to abandon the raising of another human being in order to work on a machine.

We accepted that working in a factory was superior to raising the foundation of society—just because a man did it.

Then after working, we were expected to be superhuman—the perfect mother, the perfect wife, the perfect homemaker, and have the perfect career. And while there is nothing wrong, by definition, with a woman having a career, we soon came to realize what we had sacrificed by blindly mimicking men.

We watched as our children became strangers, and soon recognized the privilege we’d given up.

And so only now—given the choice—women in the West are choosing to stay home to raise their children. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, only 31 percent of mothers with babies, and 18 percent of mothers with two or more children, are working full time.

And of those working mothers, a survey conducted by Parenting Magazine in 2000, found that 93 percent of them say they would rather be home with their kids, but are compelled to work due to “financial obligations.”

These “obligations” are imposed on women by the gender sameness of the modern West and removed from women by the gender distinctiveness of Islam.

It took women in the West almost a century of experimentation to realize a privilege given to Muslim women 1,400 years ago. Given my privilege as a woman, I only degrade myself by trying to be something I’m not, and in all honesty, don’t want to be—a man.

As women, we will never reach true liberation until we stop trying to mimic men and value the beauty in our own God given distinctiveness.

If given a choice between stoic justice and compassion, I choose compassion. And if given a choice between worldly leadership and heaven at my feet, I choose heaven.

I hope my words answer your question. In case you have any comment or you need more about the topic, please don’t hesitate to contact us again.

Thank you and please keep in touch.

Food for thought...


A brother visits his sister and asks, 'How do you live in this house? It's so small'. 

The husband returns and finds his wife angry and they argue up to the point that he divorces her. Where did this all start? She was OK up until her brother asked her.

A man asks his friend, 'How much does your boss pay you? He answers' £1000 a month'. £1000 a month?! You deserve more than that! He asks his boss for a raise but refuses so he leaves his work. Now he has no work. How did this happen?


Enter people's houses like a blind man and leave like a deaf person. 

You don't know what your everyday questions may do to a household and after you leave, The Devil creeps in and causes all sorts of problems.

Win, win!

The advice I received today: Written by Naadira Chhipa 

Today as I was walking out of a 'home' for the elderly I was stopped by a 85 year old beautiful lady. She invited me and M.Armaan (my three year old) into a little garden. As I sat on a bench, she asked me to listen to her carefully, little did I know I was about to receive priceless advice.

Looking straight into my eyes and in a hushed voice she said: 'When I look into your eyes I see that sparkle, the sparkle of love and admiration for your little boy. I know that look very well.I also had the same sparkle in my eyes a few years ago when I was surrounded by my children and grandchildren. Now my eyes are dead as I have not seen them in over three years. My child I do not know you I do not know the story of your life but I know that you are a mother and listen carefully to what I am going to tell you from one mother to another. Don't ever sacrifice your life for your children .Don't put your dreams and happiness on hold while you become busy raising this boy. Don't neglect your relationship with your husband and with yourself while you busy chasing after your children. Enjoy your life, make time for yourself and whatever you like to do, do it. Be happy and make lots of memories'.... Tears well up in her tired and wrinkled eyes.'I sacrificed my life for my children and look at me now.I am alone and all I have are memories which sometimes abandon me also.'

This was the sincere advice of an amazing woman, mother, granny and now my friend.I cried with her and as I hugged her tiny frame I could feel the pain, the disappointment and hurt in her heart.The heart of an abandoned mother.

May Allah give all mothers the comfort of being surrounded by her children and grandchildren.  May no mother ever feel abandoned or alone. May Allah purify and fill the hearts of children with love and mercy for their parents always. May the sparkle in the eyes of every mother remain illuminated until she closes them forever and may children never forget to make dua for their parents even after they leave this world.Ameen.

If you want to know the value of a Mother ask the one who just lost their mother.-Naadira Chhipa

2. Tranquility Descends.

Al Baraa reported that a man was reciting Sooratul-Kahf and there was a horse tied with two ropes at his side, when a cloud overshadowed him. As it began to come nearer and nearer his horse began to take fright from it. He went and mentioned that to the Prophet (sallalahu alaihe wa-sallam) in the morning, who said:

“It was tranquility [as-Sakeenah] which came down at the recitation of the Qur’aan.” 

๐Ÿ“š[7]Saheeh Al-Bukhaaree (Eng Trans. vol. 6, p.492, no. 531)

This shows us that the tranquility and the calmness which results from the recitation of the Qur’aan is not something abstract, but something very real which permeated the whole atmosphere so that even the animals can imbibe it. This ‘Sakeenah‘ (tranquility) which descends upon the reciter is accompanied by Angels who assemble to listen to the Qur’aan.

The Companion Usaid ibn Hudair (Radiya ‘Llahu ‘anhu) mentioned to the Prophet (sallalahu alaihe wa-sallam) that once when he was reciting the Qur’aan at night while his horse was tied beside him. The horse suddenly became uneasy and started jumping. When he stopped reciting, the horse became quiet. When he resumed reciting, the horse became uneasy again. After repeating this a few times, he stopped reciting and looked up. He was amazed to see right above him something that looked like a big cloud of bright lamps rising up in the sky. The next morning, he told the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) about this, and the Prophet (sallalahu alaihe wa-sallam) explained to him that:

“Those were Angels who came to listen to your reading. Had you kept on reciting until morning, they would have remained visible for the people to see them!”

The Price of Modesty Written by Naadira Chhipa

When a Muslimah adorns herself with her abaayah and hijaab she is not just adorning herself with a meaningless garment or lengths of fabric but she is practising a Sunnah and also emulating the Queen of Jannah, Hazrath Faatimah (R.A) as well as the shining stars our beautiful Sahaabiyah (R.A). 

We have now truly lost the essence of Modesty as we purchase the latest 'designer' abaayahs at extraordinary prices. Yes, some muslimahs may say but this is a better alternative than a Channel, D&G or Versace garment but my dear sisters we should not even consider the web of brands of this world as we will soon be covered in our plain white kafan. The prices of these branded and sarovski embellished abayaahas are incredibly high as the abaayah or fabric as well as the crystals are imported from the Middle East which is why the price tag is so heavy but the question remains why is there a market for such extravagance? 

Beauty? As women we love glittery as well as beautiful things and No my darling sisters it is not a sin to want something of this dhuniya that makes your heart smile for as long as it does not create a sense of superiority or even an atom of pride within your heart, mind and soul. A simple, reasonably priced as well modest abayaah can become an elegant one of kind garment as you make it your own by beautifying it with your humility and amazing smile. It is not what you wear, it is how you wear it.

Money? Allah has blessed certain people with increasing wealth, Alhamdullilah and even after giving charity they have extra reserves of money so they would not think twice to purchase an abaayah for about R50000(yes fifty thousand). Now they can afford it so why not, right?WRONG! When Allah gave our beloved Prophet Muhammad(S.A.W) the option of having mountains turn into gold, did he take it? When the Queen of Jannah asked her beloved father for a servant to assist her with the chores did he immediately oblige her? No. The mercy upon mankind our beloved Prophet Muhammad(s.a.w) loved simplicity as well as lived a lifestyle accordingly even though he could have had it all he chose to sacrifice this dhuniyah for the Akhirah thereby giving us a huge lesson in life. If Allah has blessed you with more than you know what to do with it does not give you the right to be extravagant but it is a test from Allah to see if your wealth makes you or breaks you. 

Quality & brands? Some may say the quality of the fabric internationally is much better than local fabrics. My dear sisters we also get the best prices as well as quality in South Africa as all you need is fabric that does tear nor stick to your body. Brands? What brand will you choose for your kafan? Brands have become so important that kafans should now be sold with certain brand names as the person wrapped in that white cloth was never seen in anything either than D&G or Versace whilst walking on this earth.

My beautiful sisters please let us reflect on our shopping this Eid. When you see that amazing abayaah or gorgeous bag just ask yourself for a minute: Will this price tag increase my own value? Will Allah be pleased with me for spending the money that he has gifted to me on this item? Will it cause me an atom of pride or superiority? Now close your eyes and make dua to Allah by saying, Oh Allah I have sacrificed my increasing desire to own this beautiful, yet temporary, worldly item so you give me something more beautiful and amazing in every colour in Jannah. Ameen. Yes this is the dua I make as I pass by the Aldo stores at the mall.

May Allah make it easy for us to understand and realise that we are all just travelling on this temporary journey called life and soon we will all be called back to Allah in the simplest of clothes, a white kafan. Let us not attach our hearts, mind and soul to anything(not even designer abaayahs) as someday soon we will have to leave it all behind as we enter our eternal abode.

Remember: Modesty of the mind.

Modesty of the heart

Modesty of the soul

Modesty of the body

Modesty of a Muslimah is priceless..No price tags attached.

The Sisterhood


๐Ÿ€ุจุณู… ุงู„ู„ู‡ ุงู„ุฑุญู…ู† ุงู„ุฑุญูŠู…๐Ÿ€ 

๏ทบ ♥̸̨͡๐Ÿƒ๏ทบ♥̸̨͡๐Ÿƒ๏ทบ 

Those who will avoid these will enjoy success in this life & in Akhirah, otherwise, problems & 

failure are the lot of those in whom these evil attributes prevail.



In simple terms, it's a don't care attitude. 

A person is unconcerned about how & when he does things or if he even does it! He's unconcious of the outcome of his actions. These pertain, both, to Huqooqullah ( rights of ุงู„ู„َّู‡ُ Subhana wa Ta'ala) & Huqooqul Ibaad ( rights of creation). It's a spiritual coma...unconcerned about one's Islah (reformation) & the purpose of life. 



One moment of anger can be a life altering moment... what about Akhirah? We don't have control over becoming angry, but we do have the power to refrain. Anger, by itself, is not harmful, but if misdirected, it contaminates & 

removes the sweetness of Iman. 



This destructive malady is a sign of the fall of a person. There is no basis for arrogance & claim over any Dunyawi or Deeni achievement! A person never had it at one stage & the reality is that it can be lost in a moment. 



This is such a sick state of Zulmat (darkness) of the heart, that a person is always in negative thoughts & suspicions about others, wishing ill for them, gloating over their misfortunes, disheartened on people's success & happiness. This leads to breaking ties & adopting measures to inflict harm.



This is the result of pride/looking down on others. The definition of Gheebat must be understood. ุงู„ู„َّู‡ُ Subhana wa Ta'ala says regarding Gheebat, 

"Would you like to eat the flesh of your dead brother? So, (in the same way) abhor it!" 



It's dangerous for one's Iman, to become extreme in Dunya or Deen. Obsession of permissible things ends in neglect of rights & duties. There should be a balance. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has warned us against Ghuluw in Deen as it can cause destruction in both worlds. 



There are 2 types of Gham. One is from Allah's side as a form of Tarbiyyah (spiritual training).

The other is self-inflicted... perpetually thinking negatively, which is extremely detrimental to one's Deen & Dunya & Akhirah.

If Gham is from Allah, He will arrange the means to remove it. 

If it's self-inflicted, we must make the effort to remove the cause of it, if possible.

May ุงู„ู„َّู‡ُ Subhana wa Ta'ala cure & protect us from these 7 destructive maladies. 

(Mufti Zubair Bhayat)

Don't fall prey to the status quo, where everything you do stems from one's own selfish ego, you keep away from those whom you deem as below, you consider in every choice what would lead one's status to grow, to maintain this you would also take the weak as a foe, everything you purchase and the way you behave is all part of the show, do you not know that our prophet Sallallahualaihiwasallam, to an invitation of trotters would go.

Amidst the thought of status where in the world is sincerety? Ones motives become a conglomeration of dishonesty, one is blinded from what really matters till one cannot see,Islam has reminded us that this life is temporary, leave all this baseless status live a life of simplicity, ponder over all this over a steamy cup of tea.

You become an obstacle for those that try to do good and practice choices of righteousness, when you disregard them you make them feel as if something is amiss, it is only in Aakhirah will one know who achieved eternal bliss.

Impressing peoples minds is a disease, to achieve this end some will even take occasional holidays overseas, by making such the goal they lose sight of the door of true contentment and its keys.

To achieve true contentment make your goal one, put Allah and his Deen before entertainment and fun, if you do so behind people you wouldn't have to run, keep him in mind in every action before whilst and after it is done.

Be kind to all regardless of who they are, that will distance you from pride keep you afar.

Remember true honor is in the life to come, their the bank balance would not matter nor the sum, neither will it matter where you are from.

After years of falling into the same pattern of disappointments and heartbreak,๐Ÿ’” I finally began to realize something profound. I had always thought that love❤ of dunya meant being attached to material things.

And I was not attached to material things. I was attached to people. I was attached to moments. I was attached to emotions. So I thought that the love of dunya just did not apply to me. What I didn’t realize was that people, moments, emotions are all a part of dunya. What I didn’t realize is that all the pain I had experienced in life was due to one thing, and one thing only: love of dunya.

And I realized as much as you can, keep dunya (worldly life) in your hand--not in your heart. That means when someone insults you, keep it out of your heart so it doesn't make you bitter or defensive. When someone praises you, also keep it out of your heart, so it doesn't make you arrogant and self-deluded. When you face hardship and stress, don't absorb it in your heart, so you don't become hopeless and overwhelmed.

Instead keep it in your hands and realize that everything passes. When you're given a gift ๐ŸŽby God, don't hold it in your heart. Hold it in your hand so that you don't begin to love the gift more than the giver. And so that when it is taken away you can truly respond with 'inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajioon': 'indeed we belong to God, and to God we return'.

Oh Allah please do not attach our hearts to this deceptive world, help us work for the hereafter and make us among those you love ๐Ÿ’ž

Beautiful explanation of Taqwa

True Definition of Taqwa?

Taqwa is not appearance


Taqwa is when you miss a single prayer, you feel uneasy the whole day...

Taqwa is when you speak a lie , your instinct feels bad..

Taqwa is the guilt that follows when u hurt someone knowingly or unknowingly, 

Taqwa is the shame and regret that follows a sin you did knowing fully well about it's stand in the sight of Allah,

Taqwa is when you cannot sleep the whole night after disobeying or disrespecting your parents..

Taqwa is to cry in the depths of night fearing none but the one above the Arsh. 

Taqwa is the fear that refrains us from sinning even when we are alone and nobody is looking...

Taqwa is the guts the will to please Allah, even when the whole world is bent on displeasing Him...

Taqwa is to wear that bearandd and Hijab for the sole reason of pleasing Our Rabb and to keep it as per sunnah....

Taqwa is to stay happy and smiling even after knowing this world is a prison for believers...

Taqwa is the good manners and character that loving and fearing Allah brings in us...

Taqwa is the struggle to better yourself according to Islam with each passing day...

Taqwa is not only about rising in deen, it is more about falling but rising up again and never letting go...


๐Ÿ’ŸAnd if YOUR heart is filled with proper Taqwa, then actions automatically follow... And the sweetness of these actions are so much better.. Subhan'Allah
