My name is Khadijah, and I am a Muslim. I am a mother. A daughter. A wife.
But, I am also a woman.
And so begins the constant internal struggle of all these roles I am meant to fill. Can I be everything I aspire to be, whilst staying within the grounds of my faith? Can I have my own dreams and ambitions whilst I cook the dinner and fold the laundry? Can I nurture my children, care for my husband, serve my parents, please my Lord AND still feel complete and satisfied as ‘Khadijah’?
Who is ‘Khadijah’, anyway?
‘Finding oneself’ is a term that used to make me cringe. But, marrying young, having children young, I never actually took the time to find out what makes me ME. Do I regret marriage and motherhood? Absolutely not! But now it’s time for Khadijah to shine through, and this blog is my journey of self-discovery.
When we write, we are able to explore a wide range of emotions, issues, and ideas. Therein lies my motivation and vision as an editor and as a writer. In a world of ignorance, writing is our saving grace. I am on a mission to nurture and sculpt the written word into a phenomenon we can all be proud of. Whether we like it or not, writing is a driving force that influences humanity and inspires society.
