Salam and hello! Welcome to Simply Muslim Mom. I am Farhana and I’m the writer of this blog. I like to write about simplifying life and in this blog you will find practical tips and ideas that will inspire you to live a simpler, balanced and fulfilling life insha Allah.
Why simplifying life? Because I’m a muslim mom of two children who wants to follow Islam with mindfulness. Allah(swt) grants each of us with amazing blessings through challenges and opportunities. And I want a simple life so I can hold onto the hot coal with a little more love and focus.
I know how it feels like to be disorganized and frustrated- when it seems you’re always falling behind your chores and budgets. I know how it feels to raise kids with hardly any support and what it feels like to pick yourself up from the challenges that life throws at you. I got tired of how all of this affect your relationship with your Lord. But I also learned how to rise above all of that, to take back control and move forward in calm, happiness and contentment.
You are welcome to join me in my journey. We will learn and grow together in our endeavor to getting closer to Allah(swt).
A little more about me-
I like to learn new skills, read, make arts & crafts, follow 21 day habits, find inspirational quotes and challenge myself to live by them. I practice interest and debt free living, doing random acts of kindsness (that I plan sometimes ;), mindful and frugal spending, green living and minimizing carbon footprints. I enjoy writing, doing yoga and meditation. I love to spend time with my family and friends. I love to be connected to Allah(swt) and look forward to all His gifts that He sends my way everyday.
I enjoy making Islamic crafts and have an ETSY shop called figsandolives-
