Rahma is an award winning Self-published author and a mother of three young kids. Noticing a lack of diversity in the market for Muslim Children books and recollecting her own struggles of growing up as an immigrant, she became determined to offer books featuring characters that are Muslim and with African roots. She released her first picture book title, Muhiima’s Quest, in 2017 and her second book, Little Brother for Sale was released in the summer of 2018.
Rahma believes that children need to be able to identify themselves in the books they read to enhance their self-confidence as well as bolster their sense of pride. She promotes her message by visiting schools in her hometown and internationally via Skype.
She hosts workshops to encourage children to write and share their stories. She is currently working on publishing more books as well as translating her current works to have them available to more children around the world.
"The heart is tarnished by two matters: unmindfulness and sin. And it is polished by two matters: seeking forgiveness and the remembrance of Allah."
Since Islam is a complete way of life with clear recommendations for each facet of our life, being a good Muslim also implies being a productive Muslim. “If we look into the early Muslims, they didn’t set out to be productive, but they practiced Islam and followed its traditions so well which made them productive pioneers of their time. Islam gives us focus, purpose, and goals; all 3 important ingredients for anybody to be productive.”
Last year's Ramadan Guide helped me get organized. As a new mom, I felt really overwhelmed. The guide allowed me to gather my goals and plan a better Ramadan; it eased my worry about what to cook with delicious recipes and simple grocery lists. It also helped me track my spiritual goals. Truly the guide assisted me in having a more rounded Ramadan!
Thank you Idil and Rahma.
Dear Idil and Rahma, I wanted to share with you my family's compliment to your guide as we have enjoyed so many of your recipes. Our favorite was the citrus salmon!! We started eating this on a regular basis in our house now. Also the Ramadan planner was very helpful as an organization tool. Thank you so much for your time and dedication in offereing this great resource.
"The Productive Ramadan Guide, created by Idil and Rahma, came at the perfect time for me. As a newlywed, I had no idea how to prepare the best meals and still focus on my daily fasting. The grocery list, along with recipes, made it easy to follow. The worksheets and the checklist allowed me to stay organized in a way I never thought I needed. Looking forward to the Mindful Guide for this year.
We want to offer you a free seven days Iftar Recipe Book!! We know some of us are having to make up some fasting days, and we wanted to make that process easier for you. These recipes are nutritious, delicious, and will fuel your body with all the nutrients you need. You will also get an idea of the kind of recipes you can expect in our two other guides.
We hope you enjoy this completely FREE gift from us.
