Pushing a fear of hellfire and punishment in small children can be extremely detrimental to their relationship with Allah. Their Iman is just beginning to gently grow, like a seedling pushing a shoot out of the earth and experiencing the comfort of the rays of sun for the first time.

I live in post EU referendum Britain. You don’t need me to tell you that it’s not pretty. Closet racists have come out of the woodwork and racists that were already crawling nastily all over the woodwork anyway, feel that they have been given a free pass to display their ugly thoughts and behaviour. And let’s not forget the Trump across the pond.

Since Brexit my social media timelines are heavily dominated by story after story of hate crimes. I began to worry about the future of our young children living here in the west. I wondered how they would cope with the rise of Islamophobia. With increasingly m...

shaytan is such a menace! He trips us up, plays tricks on us, whispers to us and what's more - he enjoys it! Now I know his name is an actual noun AND it's at the beginning of a sentence but I am not going to honour him with a capital S.


I am particularly upset with him for doing these terrible things when I was a kid:



He made my sister and me play tug of war with our little sister's most favourite pair of shorts till they ripped and she cried till the sun went down.


He made me fly right over the handlebars of my bike. I don't know how he did this but it hurt.

So your dad has a beard? Mine does too. Sometimes we forget to give them some beard love--but not today! Here are ten ways you can make your dad feel cool about his beard.


1. Tell him he looks like a bearded version of The Incredible Hulk, except less green (we hope)!
