☁ A Wee Bit about Me (*^_^*)


PLEASE Humble Our Hearts and Grace Us with the Flow of Humility in Our Veins Incessantly and Perpetually to Better Serve YOU So We ONLY See, Hear, Say and Do what Brings Us Nearer to YOU

As-Salāmu ‘Alaykum

You’ve stumbled on my website . . .crazy monkey 108!

Here goes . . .

To get an inkling of who I am, I start with these words:

A Veiled Chick's Outbursts Chibi by Rabab MaherI
DESPISE racists and racism with every fibre of my being, defenders of oppression and oppressors, those who are selective in terms of their beliefs and principles (more still, when they justify them) and excuses.

I ABHOR Arrogance, Hypocrisy, Ignorance, INJUSTICES of any kind and Intolerance. I also detest labels and labelling. (If you “suffer” from any of the aforementioned debilitating traits, you have no place on this website!)

I Believe in Truth, Respect, Justice, Human Rights and Equality.

ON A LIGHTER NOTEI’m an optimistic introvert and prefer to wander in my own little world big enough for me and 💞 my hubby 💞 – and this website is a teeny-weeny glimpse into that world. I’m a lifelong student and learner, autodidact, an extreme maven – I LOVE sharing what I’ve learnt, know and applied as well as learning from others – and an insatiable bibliophile whose life revolves around Creative Living and Solutions, Visual Creativity, Wellbeing and Words.

In the words of Michelangelo,

The promises of this world are, for the most part, vain phantoms; and to confide in one’s self, and become something of worth and value is the best and safest course.

Final Words

Take this beautiful reminder by Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah (Allah Yirĥamu) with you BEFORE you act or speak so you are mindful of your intentions and deeds,

Every gulp of air that goes out in a cause other than the cause of Allah (SWT) will turn to sorrow and regret on the Day of Judgement.

Challenge Yourself, Take Thoughtful and Heartfelt Actions, Get Inspired and Inspire.

As my late Father Maher Abdullah (Allah Yirĥamu) taught me,

Let Your Deeds BE Your Words.

  1. As-Salâmu ‘Alaykum My Better Half,

    Being your beloved husband, your other half and your worst critic, I feel obliged to drop these words for you as you are beginning your journey in the world of words.

    There is an Arabic saying that goes like this “أوّلُ الغيثِ قطرة” which translates to this ‘The beginning of a downpour is a drop‘. Having known you for the challenging seven years of our marriage, and in-shâ’-Allâh many more, I can comfortably say that this website, and rightfully so, should be the first raindrop of your downpour of words.

    This is not because you have a lot to say but rather someone who has something positive to say. I have experienced this not only during our ongoing conversations about almost everything but also with the kind of input you have had on my own writings: Articles, screenplays and poetry.

    My hope is that you have it in you to share with the world some of the rather more personal material you’ve got (specifically your poetry). I am positive that our world needs some more people like you to express some of your thoughts for it to be better.

    However, if you fail to do so, and consequently the world remains the way you hate it to be, you have only yourself, and those like you, to blame; those who refrain from doing whatever that must be done.

    May I remind you of your own words my dear, ‘Those who turn a blind eye, a deaf ear and remain silent about any form of injustice, DO SO BY CHOICE. . .’

    I pray you don’t!

    Truly Yours,

  2. I admire your philosophy, the strength and love in your attitude and I’m proud to be invited into your world of words and beliefs.

  3. Dear Rabab,

    Great to read your beautifully expressed thoughts. You are fortunate to have a loving and supportive life partner. May you both continue to spread compassion and intellect through your words. May 2012 bring you peace, joy and sense of achievement.

  4. Dear Rabab,

    Thank you for being you (^_^)!

    I’m happy to be one of your friends.

    Keep up your good work!

    I wish you all the best.

  5. Greetings,

    I am from America. I appreciate you visiting my site. But I am also very appreciative of being able to read and share in your heart. You are insightful. And your husband seems very supportive. That is a good thing and you are blessed. I love much the same things as you. And enjoy your quotes. I shall visit you more often and try to leave a small piece of my heart here with you as you do for me.

  8. I’m very happy that I know the beautiful writer :). I know it is a late comment but I love your page and your introduction; very elegant and honest as usual :). I love Mr Khalid’s comment to you . . . Mâshâ’Allâh.

  9. Assalaamu Alaikum!

    Last 6 years I’m living in Qatar. As a blogger, I never knew about any blogger in Qatar. Thanks to Valibhai Musa who shared one of your poem’s A Publicity Whore exposition. It’s really impressive with different messages.

    I read about you and your journey and views. My blog is in one of the Indian languages. If you visit please don’t be disappointed. You may read one or two posts in the English language.

    Thank you Rabab
