November 2013 Events

السلام عليكم و رحمةالله و بركاته

Hi everyone!

How are you all doing?

I just got back from a fantastic weekend! It was beyond awesome, extremely insightful and educational, and awe inspiring!
I have never felt so much energy, positivity and excitement in my life!

Curious to know where I was? And what I did?

Hmmm…. I shall share it soon.. Don’t despair.

For now though, I want to let everyone know about some amazing events taking place.

If you want to attend, please contact me ASAP so that I can book your seat, as well as your friends seat if you are taking someone with you, with regards to the one event.

And that would be: The Herbalife MEGA SHAKE PARTY!


Does everyone see the details of the poster?

If you’re waiting to make a positive change in your life, now is the time!
Sitting and waiting around isn’t going to make it happen, but by taking that first step right now, you’ve already won half the battle of wills!
The will to look fantastic by New Years at least, that’s for sure! 😉

Anyway, here’s another cause if you’re not into the Healthy Active Lifestyle by Herbalife….


So come on people!

Let’s make some positive changes in life, if not for ourselves, than atleast for someone else!
Who’s in?

Those who reply, your comments will be showing up! Come on, YOU CAN DO THIS!!!

(If I seem hyped up, it’s probably the Thermo Tea and NRG combination from Herbalife! No Blue Monday for me! Just a beautiful day with a million positive possibilities!)

Have a wonderful energized week!

وعليكم السلام و رحمةالله و بركاته

All the way from Nigeria: Entrant no.6


Anne origin Nigeria. Hijab in Nigeria is worn by all cultures and religious. We have a variety of styles being wrap, pin, bun style. We mix and match stripes with florals , sandals and heels. Most of our traditional scarfs are made with Nigerian fabric. I fully support WHD hijab as a proud Nigerian. Anne O Joseph

Entrant no 7:


I am full time in hijab, I love to experiment and wear it wrapped, turban or simply modern.In Ramadaan I prefer to wear this with my Abaya throughout the entire month.Non-Muslims are always complimenting on the beauty of hijab/scarf and abaya.I hope to inspire not only non-Muslims but the Muslims sisters especially the youth
Sisters lets experiment and make it our own.


Entrant no.8


As you know I don’t wear hijab that often and facial expression confirms it
I guess it depends on the person , how you feel inside. Personally we should wear it with pride and commit ourselves to wearing it not just for special occasions but on a daily basis, once you are comfortable in your skin
The rest, as they say, is history.

Entrant no. 9


My dad is an inspiration to our family, he always encouraged his princesses
to dress appropriately and that is to
Honour Islam and our heritage, I wish he could see us today , he left a
legacy behind I guess it comes with
Maturity and love for this beautiful religion, I wear different styles for
different occasions and it depends how
Comfortable I feel in that style, most of my clothing has a matching wrap
which makes it easier to mix and match

Mariam Juma Daniels

Entrant no.10


I love long and big scarfs with decorations and bling
I play around with what fashion has to offer and make it my own
The more you play around , the more creative you become
I do hijab on Friday’s and special occasions only
My niyaht is to wear it fulltime shukran


Entrant no. 11


Khadija Bosman
In honour of hijab awareness I wear my hijab today hoping that I will not
leave home without it
It is a challenge to wear it daily, I guess practise becomes routine. Once
routine is in place once can’t imagine being without it
To my sisters Jazakallah for sharing ideas, I will play around with the
styles I copied from you.

Hijab is our heritage, we should wear it with pride
Celebrating hijab day means we are honouring our heritage encouraging the
To wear it and our daughters should continue the tradition.
I wear hijab fulltime and hope to see more sister not only wearing it on
this day
But everyday

Entrant no. 13


I love wearing hijaab, my personal preference for years
Its versatile, colourful and simply beautiful
Sisters should not only try this for one day, extend wearing it for a week believe me
You won’t leave home without your hijaab
