In the name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As salaamu alaykum warahmatullaahi wabarakaatuhu!
Welcome to my website - Maryam's Musings, a collection of articles, stories, and poems.
I wrote my first short story at the age of 10. I am a mother of 4 kids, and I write in between potty training my toddler and helping my older kids with their school work.
I am a freelance editor and writer who explores topics as diverse as the medicinal black seed and self-defense classes for women. I am also a nutrition educator with a keen interest on nutrition research, ranging from the healing benefits of food, to the impact of genetically engineered food on our fragile bodies. I enjoy attending the Muslims in Dietetics and Nutrition's webinars, Minority Health webinars, Writers' Conferences, Al Maghrib Institute's seminars, as well as Sisters' and Women's conventions. I enjoy traveling too, and I hope someday, to join the cadre of health professionals working at Islamic Relief, Muslims Without Borders, and the Peace Corps, by volunteering my time as a community public health educator, bi idhnillaah.
I am a member of the following organizations:
Islamic Writers Alliance
Muslimah Writers Alliance
North Carolina Breastfeeding Coalition
Triangle Global Health Consortium
