Traditional Muslimah Herbalist

Alhamdulilah I have been enjoying our travels lately. On the road I had the honor to meet and talk to, two Master Herbalist mashaAllah, which really increased my joy in learning about herbal remedies, essential oils and the use of healthier alternatives.

So I'm reaching out to my TMH friends to make duaa and donate towards the courses for my herbalist training. InshaAllah I intend to share the information I am learning with you all and prayerfully help those who are looking to use healthier means to take care of themselves and their families.

MashaAllah, my family and friends are very excited about this, as they have seen over the years my strive in increasing in learning about holistic health.  I really would like to take steps into taking courses online, it gives me a chance to be at home with my family, while also pursuing something that I feel will benefit my family and the community

In the courses, I would be learning about botany, plant naming and classification from a herbal medicine perspective inshaAllah!! How exciting?!! To learn about the health benefits from what Allah has provided us, will be so great to learn and share inshaAllah

I'm really looking forward to this journey on a deeper level and pray that you all can donate, make duaa and I'm looking forward to giving back to our community by helping others who are interested inshaAllah.

There you have it! Homemaking mama, working to become an herbalist and help others inshaAllah!

I have traveled around this summer and seen illness-- mental and physical, harming others and it saddens me, I also know that there are ways we can naturally work on what is ailing us.

Please do not take this post to mean that I'm swaying others from their regular health care provider (practitioner), alhamdulilah what I am saying is that Allah has also blessed us with remedies that are natural :)

My course is 200.00 and I am not doing a gofundme, kickstarter etc .. I am asking that if you are able to make any amount donation to please send via paypal at and please say an extra duaa for me today! I truly believe that this will happen, by His permission alhamdulilah, Allah is so great and He blesses us all every single day.

Looking forward to sharing more on this journey and updatig the blog with additional facts on herbs and herbal remedies inshaAllah!

Ok can you feel the excitement in my post!!!!!

Bismillah ..... let's see what's next for this homemaker <3

Natural Hair, Natural Care

Alhamdulilah I have been enjoying my natural hair for about 8 years now. It's definitely important for me to know, whats in my beauty products that I use, and how to best take care of my natural hair.

 When Sis Taliah approached me about her hair products, I was excited.  Her Facebook page  Sister Taliah's Naturals is full of resources and awareness of the importance of natural products. She sent me three awesome products to try for 4 weeks.

3 and 1 African Black Soap
Hair Love
And T Mix

T Mix- Is my favorite, I was addicted to the smell, and not only does it smell so good, it has healthy ingredients. Taken from the website:  This special blend is designed to add moisture to the hair. 

 Tried and true my trouble areas with my hair started to trouble me no more. Each ingredient in the blend has a special purpose. For instance Jamaican Black Castor Oil helps with thinning hair and promotes hair growth. If you don't believe me, you have to try it out for yourself!

3 and 1 African Soap-  Also smells good and made my hair clean and scalp. I never really used black soap in my hair before, so this was a first and it was a good experience. Why is it three in 1? Its a shampoo, face and body wash mashaAllah and having all those benefits in one bottle is pretty awesome.  Purchase Taliah's Naturals here and please share with your friends!

Hair Love is also a great product mashaAllah, I am so happy that there is a sister making these products for everyone and its natural, it works and Sister Taliah cares about health and what goes on in our bodies. 
Hair Love--  Is a special blend is designed to make thinning hair grow in thick. Made with 100% pure Coconut pulp and oil and Jamaican Black Castor Oil . Massage on scalp weekly for great results.

T Mix "This special blend is designed to add moisture to the hair.  Use on scalp for thick, long growing hair. Ingredients:  Olive Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Jamaican Black Castor Oil, Morrocan Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil, and all natural fragrances. "
Yes!!! It smells amazing and it works! MashaAllah!! These products will become part of my regular hair care regime inshaAllah.

"According to, the body can absorb as much as five pounds of cosmetic chemicals every year. Parabens can mimic hormones in the body and disrupt functions of the endocrine system"


Nowadays there are so many harmful products all in the name of money and "beauty" but the reality is, a lot of them are doing more harm than good, and thats quite ugly!. Products being tested on animals, made from unhealthy ingredients, and with words you and I, most likely cannot identify the source!

For example:

Parabens: found in deodorants and other products, it has been said that parabens mimic estrogen and high lifelong exposure to estrogen can increase the risk in breast cancer. 

Phthalataes- mostly found in plastics and in cosmetics like nail polish, is said to put women in high elevated risk for diabetes. 

Do we really want to add those things to our body? Who knows what we are putting on our skin! thats why it is important to go with products we can trust, and support the honest, hardworking families alhamdulilah

At the end of the day, I feel good with making more health conscious choices and supporting businesses that are working to do that.

InshaAllah visit Sis Taliah's store and let her know that the Traditional Muslimah Homemaker, sent you!!

Please share this post as well, so others can be informed inshaAllah

Reflecting and Nesting

Here I am On  my due date....

We did a lot of cleaning and I have been getting messages about if I had the baby yet and so on.

Guess little baby isn't ready yet and to be honest I'm not..not today. I'm excited to meet this little individual who I have grown close to without seeing him/her.

Are you a boy... or girl? Is the question I have been getting often.

And I think....
Well, It doesn't matter, as long as youre healthy..  ten fingers ten toes a beating heart..a  little nose alhamdulilah you  will be loved that I can guarantee.
Anxiously awaiting your presence to join us..they say my hands are full already... full of blessings is what I say, and I would never turn away from or turn down extra blessings mashaAllah.

The  boys prepared the room for this big moment

Happy to share with my TMH friends, my thoughts as we prepare to turn to the start of the next chapter inshaAllah. New addtion means new schedule. I've found a system that works for us and it will help us organize life for homeschooling, homemaking, and everything else! InshaAllah i will be able to share soon.

My twin sister has arrived just in time and its quite a surprise, the children are happy to see their cousins         and my sister has offered to come help, so thats pretty great! My husband has been such a big help and  blessing, I'm glad for and thankful for all the love and kindness Allah has sent this way.

Well, subhanAllah, Ive done  more reflecting this pregnancy and one of my thoughts is that..our hearts can love so many people and not diminish with the increase of people! The heart is amazing, and this feeling called love. People often ask how did I get to enjoy homemaking, and I say..I enjoy what I do because the people I do it for bring me joy.

As often said.... it's done with love.

Theres more to be done around here so I will  keep it brief...

Guess this is my last update for now :)  I pray all  the previous blog post were beneficial!

Please don't forget to make duaa, share and if you can donate <3 Team Rahim Homebirth Dream
