We have been on a seven days hike with our friends who own the Marrakesh-based travel company “Marabout Travel”.
They organized a beautiful trip with everything included: tents, all material needed, nice food, a cook and a very helpful team of mule-keepers that took very well care of us, alhmadulillah.
This was such a new experience for me! I live since more than eleven years in the middle of these mountains and my husband is even a mountain guide. But I never did a trekking tour into the higher parts of the Atlas (when there was possibility, I either was pregnant or the children were too small).
So this year was the first time we went on a big walk as a family. And there, only about twenty kilometers away from home, over the mountains that I see every day, I discovered a whole new world, subhanallah.
I wrote a little travel journal and will share some of it over the next days, inchaallah.

see you in a couple of days, inchaallah…
Since several years I use plants to cure disease and pain.
Over these years I read a lot of different books to learn about the healing power of different herbs and weeds.
And little by little, I really found “my” herbs – the favorites I know and trust in, inchaallah.
These are the four plants I prefer over all the others.
I experienced their healing effects in many cases, alhamdulillah. I can figure them out now without doubt, even in the wilderness. And the best is, they grow near to us, carying in their juices, cells and parts the very essence of the soil we live on, subhanallah. They shine with the healing benefits of mother earth and provide us with wellness whenever we need a little help – often much better and quicker than any artificial medication could do.
favorite books on herbs and natural medicine:
Maria Treben : «Gesundheit aus der Apotheke Gottes » / « Health from God’s garden »
Susanne Fischer-Rizzi: “Medicine of the earth” / “Medizin der Erde”
Susanne Fischer-Rizzi: “Mit der Wildnis verbunden”
Wolf-Dieter Storl: “Ich bin ein Teil des Waldes”
Wolf-Dieter Storl: „Mit Pflanzen verbunden“
two other articles I once wrote on the topic of natural medicine:
latin and pharmaceutical names: achillea, calendula, plantago, salvia

playing around with photoshop and creating a new statement of peace….
you are welcome to copy and use this badge and spread it around!
I have a moment for myself, thinking about politics and the actual situation in the world.
I sense the fear and insecurity in Europe and I pray that people gain hope and the courage to focus on the good and on unity, putting importance on global peace and friendship instead of concentrating on a bad minority and eventual terror.
I see that it might be time to make a clear statement as a peaceful Muslim, because peace begins with myself:
“What I think, I create.
What I feel, I attract.
What I imagine, I become.”
So I decide to think, feel and imagine PEACE,
because like attracts like.
I wish to attract peace, inchaallah.
Salam aleikoum – Peace be with you!
Lord, let me be Your tool of peace!
Help me living Your message as it should be lived, loving and merciful,
just as Your Prophet (sas) lived it.
Let me be a real example of Your wonderful religion,
spreading out light, hope and tolerance towards all!
“Islam” comes from the word “salam” which means “peace”.
