Bismillah a Rachman a Rachim and Salamou alaikoum out there,
Sorry to all visitors who have tried to see my blog over the last days and thank you so much for the nice mails you wrote me, saying you missed this place – I had to close it for a while; I had to re-centre myself, to think about its purpose and to ask Allah for guidance.
During the 27th night of Ramadan, which maybe was “The night of Power” (Allahu aalem), I realized that I have to change things, I felt that this blog needs to take a new direction, cause I felt as if I have lost a true meaning over the last few months.
I made Istikhara (prayer for divine guidance) because I wasn’t sure whether to continue blogging or not, so I questioned all of it.
I realized that I do not want to play the main part on that little place here; I do not want to put myself nor my family in front; I do not want to show off; I do not want to provoke envy, jealousy, the evil eye or negative feelings in others. And I do not want to worship the readers, nor myself. Astafirghullah.
I want to worship God Almighty alone and I want to blog for His sake only. I want to make my whole writing and living a witness of my faith in Allah’s great religion – And to gain His pleasure is my biggest aim, inchaallah.
So things changed and will change around here and I call this place now “my living faith”, because that’s what it is: the journal of a life in faith, with all its beauty and struggles.
Maybe I will not post as often as before because time became very precious with three kids and I do not want to let the blog come over my life, it is so easy to get distracted by it.
And maybe the posts will become less personal, but I hope by being more focused on the beauty of Islam, I will be able to pay gratitude to the mercy and the blessings of God’s creation and to inspire others.
I will still enjoy your visits and comments here, although they will not be my intention to write. It is a great honour for me to count you as my readers and I hope the changes here will be beneficial for you as well, inchaallah.
’Id moubarak to all my Muslims brothers and sisters and may Allah accept your good deeds. Ameen.
Peace to you all,
