Wellness Muslimah was founded out of a deep desire to not only inspire but to connect Muslim women through faith and health.
It was born out of a passion to spread awareness about the importance of health in Islam.
It was started out of a yearning to bring back the Sunnah of Rasulullah (pbuh).
I was started out of a responsibility to share my knowledge and help women to become their healthiest selves.
My motto is: when you eat good, you feel good.
I believe wholeheartedly that with the right knowledge and information, everyone can benefit from a healthy lifestyle physically, mentally and spiritually.
My goal with Wellness Muslimah is to provide informative and scientific-based yet easy-to-understand content that can get you on the way to your healthiest, happiest self!
I also believe it necessary that we learn and understand the basic Islamic principles of health according the Qur’an and Sunnah. From an Islamic standpoint, health is seen as one of the greatest blessings from Allah (swt) after that of being a believer. This can be seen in the following hadith:
The final messenger of God, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) mounted the pulpit, then wept and said, “Ask Allah (swt) for forgiveness and health, for after being granted certainty, one is given nothing better than health.” [Al-Tirmidhi]
Good health is much more than the absence of illness. Good health is an act of gratitude and worship to the One who gave us our health. Good health allows us to worship the Almighty as best we possibly can.
Wellness Muslimah is a place where we can learn, together, about proper health and how to be the best version of ourselves.
It is a sisterhood. It is where we support, encourage, and inspire one another.
It is dedicated to striving in the way of the Almighty Allah (swt) and caring for our bodies for His sake.
The Prophet (pbuh) advised us to:
“Take benefit of five before five: Your youth before old age, your health before sickness, your wealth before your poverty, your free time before you are preoccupied, and your life before your death.” [Al Hakim]
There is no denying how important health is in Islam. Taking care of your health is an act of worship, it is filling an obligation to Allah (swt).
I don’t believe in a “one-diet-fits-all” approach. I believe that whether you are a meat-lover, a vegetarian, a vegan, gluten-free, or what have you, you can find what works for you with a basic understanding of whole foods and nutrition.
Healthy living should not be about cutting out the foods you love, but rather, it should be about learning how to balance what you love with what is good for you.
Muslim women are unique. We are unique in our worship, our dress, our roles within both our homes and society, and in our lifestyle. It’s important that we have a place where we can all come together to support one another in achieving ultimate success both in this life and in the next.
That is what Muslimah Healthy is all about. We strive to incorporate health and wellness into our lives in the best way possible; a way that will make us better daughters, sisters, wives, mothers, friends, and servants of Allah (swt).
I’m so excited to share this journey of wellness and spirituality with you. It is my hope that you will benefit from this beautiful sisterhood and stick around for the long-term. I truly look forward to connecting with you. Barak Allahu feekum!
