Grateful to be selected as one of The New York Journal’s Top 20 Women Disruptors To Look Out For In 2023

Alhamdulillah, I am grateful to be selected by The New York Journal as one of their “Top 20 Women Making Positive Change in 2023” 🌟

As I contemplate this, a myriad of thoughts emerge… 💭

1 – I see it as such a huge milestone in portraying a positive view of Muslim women – in mainstream Western media. I personally know of hundreds of amazing Muslim women who are striving and excelling in their roles to serve a good purpose for humanity, so I share this positive accomplishment with them! 🧕🌍

2 – By the grace of Allah, overcoming numerous barriers with His help has been our strength, and in that, we hope that our success formula paves the way for other women (of any faith) to enter and thrive in their personal and professional endeavors. 💪🙏

3 – Innovative Thinking: Throughout my journey, I have consistently been determined to challenge conventional notions of what it means to be a Muslim. For me, Islam means striving to excel in self-improvement for Allah (God). Period.

The hadith – ‘seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave’ has always been a great inspiration here. This innate drive has allowed me to carve out my own unique path weaving together – Islamic education, self-improvement, and personal development fields.🌱📚

4 – Leadership and Influence: The seeds of leadership were sown in my life at the age of 12, when I shouldered significant responsibilities within a large single-parent family. As I matured, my passion for understanding the art of influence and its potential for positive change grew exponentially. 🌿👩‍👧‍👦

5 – Empowerment: My efforts are far beyond seeking personal success and encompass empowering others. 💪🌟

Overall, being called a “top woman disrupter”, I am honored, alhamdulillah, for the recognition of my unique mission and role in driving positive, meaningful change within my industry and fields – for people of all faiths. 🌎🙌
