"Wealth and children are an adornment of this, world's life: but good deeds, the fruit whereof endures forever, are of far greater merit in thy Sustainer's sight, and a far better source of hope." Quran 18: 46
As if the virus of 2020 wasn’t wreaking enough havoc, we humans come face to face with the ugly virus that lives inside many.
A cure or vaccine for Corona virus may be found but can humans create a vaccine for racism while they’re at it?
As parents we may not be able to change the minds of others but we are capable of vaccinating our children from being white-washed. To do that we must fill our shelves with diverse content written by POC’s.
Join us in breaking the silence and vaccinating future generations by following the hashtag #muslimbloggersagainstracism

I was on maternity leave when one day I decided to turn on the TV and watch what kind of shows were on while I was at work. This is how I came upon The Real and this episode. Otherwise, I don’t watch much TV. I go through periods though where I only read or where I’m hooked on certain series. Other than that, it gets challenging to watch TV daily and alhamdullilah for that.
Anyways, the issue of race spoke loudly to me so I decided to author a book for the sake of my own child in America. Prior to that, I had met people in college who had issues with mixed couples like ours. They said that the offsprings of such unions are scarred for life; they longed for a sense of belonging. I thought, “That’s interesting. We don’t have that issue in Africa.” I did my research and BAM! There was some truth in it.
Anyways, the project was in the back-burner for a while and is now being designed alhamdullilah.
Below is a sneak peak page. A bit hard to see but you can have an idea…
Description: When Nouredine goes to his first day of school at Fitra Pre-School, his joy is crushed when one of his schoolmates asked, ‘What are you?’ and mockeries ensued. He turns to his parents for an answer which satisfies him. This book uses a theist approach to discuss race issues with biracial children from Black and White parents. We can all agree that the ‘What Race Are You?’ is an inevitable question biracial and mixed race children will face at least once in their lives if not permanently. Nouredine’s father is an American citizen originally from the Balkans. His mother is also a US citizen originally from West Africa. Nouredine is American and was born in Texas. Depending on how the reader looks at it, Nouredine can be considered African-American, biracial or multi-racial.
Goal of this post: If you know anybody who is in a multi-racial or bi-racial family who might be interested in reviewing my children book when it comes out, please tell them to contact me here so I can tell them when the Amazon free kindle promotion starts insha’Allah.
Please keep us in your duas so that this project goes through insha’Allah. May Allah protect us from the evil eye, amiin.
