A smile that swept me away.

Standard

Everyday I waited and waited for that moment when he looked me in my eyes and smiled.  I felt like it would never come, and at times when I thought the moment arrived, it turned out to be a bit of wind.

But today I finally got the smile I’d been waiting for.  It helped me put to rest the year of sleepless nights, injections, backache, heartburn, tears, emotions and sore nipples.  It was a smile fuelled with something I hadn’t felt in a while. Pure, untainted and unconditional love, Mashallah.

I told people very casually, “Yes, I’m going to go to England, have a baby and be back at work in no time”!  And to think I actually made it as far as coming back to Kuwait, Alhamdulilah, Praise be to Allah.  I quickly recognised the blessings sent my way through people and even objects!  How can you learn to be patient if your patience is not tested.

This new chapter of life stretches me to witness a new way of life, focusing not only on my own goals and dreams, but nurturing my children to achieve their own.  May Allah aid me to find the balance of raising righteous children for this world and the hereafter Ameen

She graduated with a BA Hons in Early Childhood Studies eager to do right by my son. Around 2006 she embraced Islam and took on a calmer lifestyle getting married and focusing on being a mother alongside a business woman. Her marriage dissolved due to domestic Violence in 2009 and she retook a different path learning how to rebuild my self esteem and confidence. This journey allowed Shalina to share her growth via blogs and vlogs building a large following around the topic of abuse. Around 2011 her career as a Radio Presenter at Unity FM began. As her confidence grew, she decided to speak out in international media defending the rights of Women and Hijab. This lead her to successfully be present in Media covering newspaper, TV, Radio and Magazines in addition to have been in a successful documentary done about 6 Muslim women from around the world by a TV Production Team (NRL) from the Netherlands. This public platform allowed her to be vocal about various heart felt topics through Social media and other broadcasting opportunities. As a result Shalina now coaches women around the topic of Abuse Resolution. She continues to appear in mainstream media discussing various topics around Islam and women. She also runs her own business providing Inclusive Islamic Education for SEND Children. She is currently recording an album and writing a book, both due to be released in 2017 God Willing.
