☁ A Wee Bit about Me (*^_^*)

Here goes . . .


Background ☁ I get asked a lot about my “background” for some reason so here it is. I’m a British-Palestinian Chick with a North Londoner’s accent + a hint of Mancunian and funny eclectic Arabic when I speak Arabic, with an obsession with etymology, epistemology and spider webs, residing in Little Qatar with my hubby. That was a mouthful (*^_^*).

What You’ll Glimpse in My Writings ☁ I’m an incessant clarity questioner and seeker, an introverted rebellion, and petite in size but big in character. I’ve a deep fascination with holistic health and healing in Islâm, character growth, word choices, mindset and behaviour – to name just a few (*^_^*).

2018-ChibiBoyforPalestine+Jerusalem-by-RababMaherEarly Bird & Night Owl ☁ By day I’m a homemaker, (learning) photographer, Certified Essential Oil Coach™, wellbeing guide™, and writer. By night, a student, avid reader and artist. One of my favourite leisure’s is to sit in a coffee shop sipping quality coffee or herbal tea, and drawing away on my Samsung tablet or reading a quality book.

My Free Flow ☁ I wander in my own wee world with my life and work partner (he’s the nicer one) as a no-nonsense and fuss free minimalist. I LOVE Clarifying, Simplifying and keeping it as Natural as possible whilst living creatively in alignment with my Inner Truth™, which include (1) Perpetual Learning and Applicable Knowledge + (2) Visual Creativity and Creative Expression + (3) Aligned Wellbeing and Wellbeing Guidance.

PurpleEyesCuteVeiledChibiArt-byRababMaherMy WHOLE Life Wrapped Up ☁ I’m an optimist, perpetual learner, autodidact and an extreme maven – I LOVE sharing what I’ve learnt, know and applied as well as learning from others. I’m an INSATIABLE Bibliophile living a life revolving around Creative Living and Solutions, Visual Creativity, Words and Wellbeing.

Note ☁ My Arabic name Rabab means White Clouds.

  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 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.

  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 am 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.


  6. As-Salâmu ‘Alaykum Rabab,

    It’s a pleasure to connect with you.

    Wow! You have one great website here! So well-arranged, such a peaceful design too.

    And, thank you for being at my humble little corner 🙂

    Good day,

  7. You are so pretty! Really pretty from the inside too. Just read about you and the comment your husband made. I melted reading it. You already are doing so Good Mâshâ’Allâh and I can just wish and Pray for you! May you get all the success and happiness in your life 🙂

    Love xx

  8. I’m very happy that I know the beautiful writer 🙂. I know it’s 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,

    For the last 6 years I’ve been in 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 Whoreexposition. 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
