The Best of Stories Online

4-week course discussing selected Quranic Stories. Starts July 17th

The ‘Best of Stories’ Online course is a 4-week self-paced program covering four stories from the Quran. Sisters will prepare from Tafseer and take part in a group discussion of the lessons and benefits, then come up with gems and personal action points to apply the guidance of the Quran. Audio lessons (like the original ‘Best of Stories’ series) will be provided at the end of each week to review and consolidate our learning.

Come join us in an environment exclusively designed for you to discuss, think, study and learn with a group of like-minded sisters. This course is perfect for individuals, friends, or small groups looking to further develop their relationship with the Book of Allah and get practical experience reflecting on the ayat of the Quran.

When you broke down the Tafseer of the verses in the story, there was so much that we could take from it. When I initially looked at it myself, I couldn’t get it. Alhumdulillah you have given us the tools and Insh’Allah we can start implementing them.



Healthy Muslimah Summit

29th July - 5th August

The Healthy Muslimah Summit is about way more than food and nutrition – it’s about redefining our idea of ‘healthy’ to include all the elements that make us up as a whole: physical, emotional and spiritual! In fact, food and nutrition are just the tip of the iceberg.  Inshallah I’ll be speaking about Developing a healthy relationship with the Quran 😊

From the 29th July – 5th August, you can attend 8 days of life-changing talks from Muslimah experts all over the world, in the first online event of its kind!
The event is FREE and you can sign up by clicking the link in my bio. For more info check out the website bi ithnillah ta’ala.


Where do I begin?

I want to connect with the Quran, but I don't know where to start

Question: “How do I get started on building my connection with the Quran? It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, but I don’t know where to begin…”

Begin with Barakah

Master your mornings, make the most of every day

Begin with Barakah is my system to help you master your mornings and take control of your days, and ultimately your life inshallah. It’s about making time for the things you really want to be a part of your life. From reciting the Quran, to daily exercise, to journaling, blogging or just breathing. This audio gives you a rundown of how it works by Sumayah from Recite & Reflect, and my guest and dear friend, Nilly. Enjoy 🙂 For more on Begin with Barakah, take a look at the latest posts on the blog.

Quran Dreams

2nd - 22nd of Aug 2016

One of my favorite parts of running the Recite & Reflect workshop, [which I’ve taught 6 times, to 100+ sisters, by Allah (swt)’s favor alone], is the part where sisters answer the following question: ‘Describe your ideal relationship with the Quran’. It should come as no surprise, but their answers blow me away; every single time…

Begin with Barakah: All About Affirmations

What exactly are Affirmations? How do they work?

Affirmations are a tool to help you articulate and define the experiences and outcomes you want to achieve. You’re essentially programming and influencing your subconscious mind to focus on the thoughts, values and beliefs that help you live a life that’s inline with your ideals.


[Interview] Using the Qur’an to Mentor You Through Life

Ramadan is the month in which the Qur’an was revealed as stated in the verse: “The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion…” (Al Baqarah 2, 185). This great and noble Book is the best guidance for mankind.

Classical Interpretation vs. Personal Reflection

I wholeheartedly acknowledge the role Tafseer plays in building your understanding and delicately enforcing the boundaries that keep us from falling into outright blasphemy. It goes without saying (although the Recite & Reflect method says just that) that referring to the Tafasir of our scholars is a critical step in reaching the correct understanding.
