Meet A Mom Series One

This week I began a new feature called “Meet a Mom”. I wanted to hear from moms like you who have valuable tips to share with other moms from around the world. Let’s welcome our first three amazing moms who have generously taken the time to share their very best words of advice with us!

1. Sr. Faaiza Daya of www.muslimhousewifesa.wordpress.com

I am Faaiza Daya, stay at home mother. I live in Gauteng, South Africa. I am a mother of two toddlers. My son is 5 years and my little girl will be 3 in November.

Best Self Care Tip

Take 15 minutes every morning before everyone is awake and put makeup on. Even just to put mascara and some gloss. That few minutes of mommy time and just seeing to yourself makes a huge difference 💞

Best Parenting Tip

Pick your battles…not all of them have to be fought😉

Best Organizing Tip

Make homes for everything that way at the end of the day you can put the minions away😂

Best Spiritual Tip

Take 5 mins every day and read a hadith or story of the sahaabahs to your kids…I love the fazail a’maal💞

2. Meet Sr. Mariam Arafat

My name is Mariam Arafat. Residing in the United Arab Emirates with my family. I am homeschooling mom of two amazing kids mashAllah. Girl 10 and Boy 6.

Best Self-Care Tip

At the end of the day, take a relaxing bath with Epsom salt and a candle lit in the bathroom. Get dressed in comfortable pajamas, have your camomile tea, and read a book, even if it’s just a page, enjoy this time.

Best Parenting Tip

Make dua for your kids, hug and kiss them more, they will grow up soon.

Best Organising Tip

Do Little every day, so it doesn’t become an enormous task at the end of the week.

Best Spiritual Tip

Make dua in sujood, pour your heart out in front of the Almighty, the nearness that you feel to Allah SWT cannot be explained in words

Meet Sr. Jameela Ho of www.ilmaeducation.com

Jameela Ho pre-k teacher and mother to two teenagers from Australia.

Best Self-Care Tip

Eat plenty of fresh organic fruits and vegetables throughout the day. You’ll feel better, your mind will be clearer and your body will have the energy it needs to thrive and heal itself.

Best Parenting Tip

Hug, kiss and cuddle your children when they’re young and even when they’re older. Do it all the time. This is the best way to stay connected.

Best Organizing Tip

De-clutter constantly so you don’t have a build-up of things that need to be stored.

Best Spiritual Tip

When you get up in the morning take a moment to find something to be grateful to Allah for.

Zakkiya
Founder, author, designer, wife and mom of 6. My quest is to remind mothers of the blessings of motherhood and provide simple tips to attain relief. My Love for Allah SWT and his beloved Prophet SAW inspire me to spread a peaceful message through the woes of parenthood. Forgive me for any error for only God is Perfect. My writing is a reminder to others, but mostly myself, about the temporary and difficult challenges of this world for an everlasting and beautiful hereafter. Insha'Allah may we meet there someday.
