This blog is published for the sake of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala and the thousands of Muslims raised or reverts, or even non-Muslis, who might be living in areas where they are not able to experience Ramadan in a Muslim community; so we, at MWA, invite you to be a part of our community in Ramadan.

The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion (between right and wrong) Al-Baqarah 2:185

Established in 2006, Muslimah Writers Alliance (MWA) is an internationally-based collaboration of Muslim women writers and advocates working together to counter negative and inaccurate perceptions regarding members of the Muslim community and the Islamic faith.

MWA Member Queen Sheba Cisse on being grateful in Ramadan; and every day!

By the grace and mercy of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala we are in the last 10 days of Ramadan. Truly I am grateful for that and the many opportunities that come my way by the will of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala.

Recently I returned from a short travel of inspiration that uprooted from the ground up to a business project I founded several years ago called Queen Sheba Village. The soul that inspired the project is my great great-Grandmum, Mariama, who is represented by her daughter who is my GrandMum, Sayyida Iretta. In order to move forward I sometimes have to take a few steps backward. I am grateful for the ongoing project and the fine noble women whom inspired it to manifestation.

Surah 108 Al-Kawthar from The Holy Quran comes to mind when we have an abundance from The Almighty. Thanking Allah subhnahu wa ta'ala is a powerful gesture and I shall be grateful enough to continue to repeat it, insha'Allah. Everyday is a grateful day.

Ramadan Mubarak to all of You, Al Hamdulilah.
