Frequently Asked Questions

What are your qualifications?

Working with the Muslim community for over 30 years, I have been blessed with many experiences. I have taught all ages of Muslim-American students. I have counseled many parents. I have home-schooled my own sons through the 8th grade. I now write articles and speak publicly in the hopes of sharing whatever I have found to be of benefit in my own parenting and spiritual development journeys.

Are you a therapist or an a’alima (female scholar of the Islamic sciences)?

No. I am a data collector, a storyteller, a teacher, and a practicing Muslim. I have often been told that I am a good listener, advisor, and public speaker. I love working with young people and feel an easy connection with them. It is important to me to help bridge the communication and cultural gaps between parents and the next generation.

Can you speak at my event?
