I am passionate about the world we live in and believe that if each of us made a conscious effort to better ourselves, we could better the world that has been gifted to us. Here, I am sharing my thoughts on issues within our world that affect us within societies, within cultures and together as a global family.

Assalaamualaikum, Syria.

Assalaamualaikum, Syria.

Assalaamualaikum Syria. I don't know what to say. How are you... maybe? It seems so feeble, my attempt to show you I care. I've heard you haven't been well; worse than not well in fact - I heard it's been like hell. You're caught like a pawn in a game of death... in a...

My Sisters in Syria

My Sisters in Syria

I pulled him even closer; my nose buried in his bed of curly hair, my fingers clamped tightly in his small fist. I sat with my back against the hard back of the cold blue chair looking out across my city through the floor to ceiling length window beside me. Lights...

Could the Hajj Stampede Have Been Avoided?

Could the Hajj Stampede Have Been Avoided?

I am sure by now that you have all heard the news. Last month, in the most devastating disaster to have hit Saudi Arabia in a long while, over 2000 people were crushed to death when a stampede took place, making this the most deadly tragedy in the history of the...

Rich, Poor London

Rich, Poor London

A city of dreams. Of wealth, of love, of good fortune. But I see my brother, sitting on the street corner. I smile at him, yet inside my heart knows there is nothing to smile for. I want him to know that I see him. He's not invisible to me. It's getting cold outside....

Why I Stand With Ahmed

Why I Stand With Ahmed

I think back to my school days and I am so, so grateful that all the memories that I have are good. School was a place that filled me with excitement. A place that nurtured my mind, encouraged my creativity and applauded my achievements. A place where my teachers were...

Humanity Washed Ashore: A Conscious Perspective

Humanity Washed Ashore: A Conscious Perspective

Tunisia: Just Another Terror Attack

Tunisia: Just Another Terror Attack

You may call it irony or you may call me a hypocrite: I write for newspapers, but I hate reading the news. I have my reasons of course. When does a day go by, especially in Britain, where there isn’t bad news in the media? Every single day, and I do not even...

Does Your Family Really Know You?

Does Your Family Really Know You?

There is so much noise all around me. The children are playing and a loud giggle bursts through the air every few moments; the teenage boys are sat in their spot talking amongst each other, some of them clearly attempting to make their voices sound deeper than they...

EcoPeace: Fruits of Consciousness

EcoPeace: Fruits of Consciousness

They say that money makes the world go round, and yes, to an extent you could say that is true. You see it everywhere: in music, in media, in advertising - 'consume, consume, consume' they all scream out at us and unfortunately, most of the time we listen, shelling...

Every Month I Bleed – Get Over It.

Every Month I Bleed – Get Over It.

I say this all the time, but we really do live in such strange times. Times where we have become desensitised to having almost naked women, sex and the YOLO lifestyle thrust repeatedly in our faces; yet, simultaneously times where not much has changed since past...
