Introduction for my brand new book, Love and Happiness. Link below in comments:

Things fall apart. And they break sometimes. Like many of you, my journey hasn’t always been easy. Pain is very real. And so is loss. Sometimes it’s hard not to let the weight of what we carry—or the memory of what we’ve lost—take over. Many of us know the reality of struggle, and so many people suffer in silence. It’s hard. It’s hard not to give up when we face the repeated disappointments of life. Like some of you, I’ve known loneliness. I’ve known defeat. I’ve fallen many times chasing mirages, and broken many bones making castles in life’s fading sands. Sometimes, all it took was one solid wave to destroy what I had spent years building.

So I decided to give it a voice. All of it: the tears, the pain. And the lessons. The things I saw and learned and gained along my life path needed a voice. I wanted to give back, in hopes of helping myself and others survive. But then it wasn’t just about surviving. I didn’t just want people to survive inside their storms. I wanted people to thrive inside their storms.

And so I wrote, as I walked through my own.
The words found in this book became my voice and my letter to the world. They became my deepest attempt to, not just pick myself up, but others along the way. I wrote because, just as we will fall in life, so will we rise. That’s the thing about this world. It never gives us only one kind of path. There is pain. Yes. And loss. And even darkness. But there is also light. There is hope. There is beauty.

And there is also love and happiness.

The A-Z Of Women’s Modern Fiqh

Women’s Fiqh has the reputation of being complicated. It’s been open to misinterpretation and misconception.
And most dangerously, it’s been misused and abused. That’s why it’s imperative for both women and men…

Silver Linings by Ustadha Yasmin Mogahed | Toronto – AlMaghrib Institute

“Be patient” is definitely easier said than done. Everyone knows at a logical level what should be done to pull through a moment of difficulty. Yet, when we’re in the heart of darkness, hollow pieces of advice are the last thing we want to hear. And that’s when we drift into isolation, spira…

“Do not stop mentioning Allah just because your heart is not present. Forgetting Him completely is worse than being inattentive while you are mentioning Him; perhaps He will elevate you from being inattentive to being attentive, and from being attentive to being fully present with Him, and from being fully present with Him to being fully absent from anything but Him. ‘This is not difficult for Allah’”
–Ibn `Ataa’

Recently, many people have asked me how to cope when the people we seek inspiration from turn out to be flawed. The answer is simple.
Remember this: the light you receive from that teacher did not come *from* them. It came *through* them. The source of that light was, is, and will always remain in Allah. A broken mirror can still reflect light. And the break in the mirror does not take away from the Reality or illumination of the light.
My dear global family, I am cracked, as you are. Why? Because I am human, as you are. Please never attach any benefit I or other teachers give you, to our person. We are only tools. And like all machines, we are limited. In life, capacity, and virtue. Remember that all light belongs to Allah. If He wills, He allows us to be a tiny–albeit flawed–carrier of that light. But we are never, ever, the Source.
