MY HAPPY PERSON

Photo Courtesy: www.pixabay.com Now my happy person is not exactly 'happy'. He is very naughty, very stubborn, twice a cry baby as me but also very charming. So my typical day is either filled with his excited screams as he plays, jumps, jogs, matches around or violently, hysterically crying; you could hear him cry two blocks away. But he still...

THE CHARACTERS YOU FIND IN CAMPUS

If you want to be amused, amazed, shocked, perplexed, inspired, totally disgusted on how human beings are and can be, please go to the campus, university or even to a college. By the end of your first semester, your mind lies to you that you've seen it all, yet, you haven't. These characters are increasingly surprising; you just never...

BECOMING A PRODUCTIVE MUSLIMAH

Photo Courtesy: www.pixabay.com Remember the halamee conversation we had? Well okay, it was more of a virtual one between us but you remember it right? (Here: http://lubnah.me.ke/being-a-halamee/ if you haven't seen this). The talk we had on the stereotypes of being an educated Muslimah, the challenges of being so different it bothers people, the yearning to belong somewhere, to fit...

JUST BE.

Photo Courtesy: www.pixabay.com In many motivational speeches or writings, one thing the speaker or author encourages his/her audience to do is answer this question: "What is my purpose in life?" It is as simple and complex as it is. The question automatically brings about more question to mind. Like; why am I doing what I'm doing? Is it what I...

NJIA PANDA

Picha: https://pixabay.com Sikilizeni kwa makini, mwenzenu nipo matatani... Kwa mkubwa mtihani, ulonipata duniani... Na nimekita mawazoni, sijui nifanye nini.. Nimefika njia panda, jamani nifate ipi? Mimi ni mke nyumbani, na pia mimi ni mama... Pili nilikua shuleni, na chuo kikuu kusoma.. Kishida nilisoma jamani, kwa juhudi zake mama.. Nimefika njia panda, jamani nifate ipi? Kwa kupenda Rabana, shahada nikatunikiwa.. Kwa kweli niling'ang'ana, mwishoe nikafanikiwa.. Nikapata wangu bwana, harusi...

WE PLAN…AND ALLAH PLANS

Photo Courtesy: www.pixabay.com Sometimes people wrong us in such despicable ways. Sometimes we are the ones who wrong people. Sometimes we are oppressed, we are discriminated and mistreated. Sometimes we are the ones carrying the baggage of harming others. Sometimes we lose everything at once, sometimes it is so hard, it is difficult to move on. Sometimes is sometimes our...

WHAT TO SEE WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME

Photo Courtesy: https://pixabay.com It is 3 days to Eid...My aunt says it is okay to go out to check out stuff in the shops at night. There's music and loads of people outside. I mean that's an understatement in Amu. We've made our rounds, have sat at the sea front and ate our ice-creams, and now are heading back home....

IT’S ALL A MATTER OF TIME

Photo Courtesy: www.pixabay.com The kind of lives we lead nowadays is quite sickening, disgusting and most of all, heartbreaking. Indeed this world is full of trials. All universal religions believe that we are here to be tested and on a mission to prove our faith. That aside, there are many many disappointing situations that could be avoided entirely if only...

WHEN YOU JUST CAN’T KEEP CALM

Photo Courtesy: https://pixabay.com "You have to give a speech." First of all, I have anxiety. And you know people think anxiety is a joke. This thing is real. I mean how do you explain how I poured myself hot water instead of tea for breakfast, how I almost served my brother with hot chilli instead of stew, how I made my entire...

A FAKE SMILE

Photo Courtesy: www.pixabay.com I faked a smile after I kissed the hand of the man who abused me. “MashaAllah! He's grown into a fine young man,” he responded as my father reintroduced me to him. A lump had already formed in my throat. My mind was abuzz with activity as my heart tried to register the multitude of feelings that exploded inside...
