What is your favourite word in the English dictionary?

So one of my questions was 'What one question would you ask me?' and I got a few so here are those along with their answers

Fatima Yusuf: It would be How are you today sister?

-I'm well Alhamdulillah!

Holly Winters: Who are you? I don`t know your name so I call you the ihijabi chick.

-Lol, erm how do I answer that? =S you can call me the iHijabi chick I dont mind =P

Kaddie Zaman: Wat do u do on the dayz everything is goin wrong and ur still tryin ur best 2 keep up ur eeman?

Surround myself with positive people with good iman, call my friends/cousins, spend time with good company...being alone in those times give shaytaan the opportunity to get inside your head. Obviously make lots of du'a too (=

Safiya Erin Güclü: how do u wake up for fajr? I sumhow manage to slp thru my alarm and the azan :(

-It happens to me sometimes too but best advice I can give which works for me is get someone to wake you up, sleep early, make sincere intention before going to sleep

Haile Tofy: what inspires n motivates your art?
-Architecture, Mosques, the Arabic language and calligraphy, Islamic history, nature.

Anzal Adhan Omar: What are some of the greatest challenges you've faced in life and how did u overcome them?

-My father having cancer. I just had to remind myself of Allah and destiny, put my complete faith in Allah and make lot's of du'a. Had to be strong for him and the rest of my family.

-People being two faced and stabbing you in the back when you're already at a low. I had to again put my trust in Allah and do more ibaadah, I learnt to grow a thick skin and not let people get to me so quickly.

Umm Aishah: How did you become ihijabi?  

-I've always had to have a way to express myself whether that be through art, poetry or writing. One Summer after writing an article about something that was bugging me 'feminism' I decided to start up a blog to express my writing in a way I can keep a record of it and so inshaAllah someone might benefit from it. 

My friend at uni came up with the name iHijabi and so when I was thinking of a name for the blog I kept that. I didn't want people to know who I was or what I looked like because I don't want to be recognised for this.

 I felt by keeping myself anonymous people would be forced to focus on what I have to say and judge me for the way I think rather than who I am or the way I look. I also didn't want people I know in my personal and work life to be able to google me and use things I have said against me if they don't agree with it.

And that's it (= hope you enjoyed that, jzk for all the girlies that joined in, was nice getting to know you all a bit better. Make sure you join my facebook page for more iHijabi updates, competitions, giveaways, pictures etc https://www.facebook.com/IHijabi
