Everything has changed!! #newnormal #theworldsgonemad Only Allah knows when things will get back to normal (if ever), and if #Santa (in the face of #BorisJohnson) will deliver the vaccine in time for Christmas?

Happy birthday to my first born

Happy birthday to my first born So Little Muslim Books was inspired by this #littleman. Sulaiman, my first born, with your first born it’s a whirl wind. The first tar nappy change, first latch/feed, first burp, first sneeze, first stretch and yawn, the first sleepless night, the first nappy leak, projectile vomit, colic cry.....and that long awaited first smile. Those early first moments are something that you document (pictures or write them down. By your third baby you don’t have any memory left on your phone) and never forget!! I never thought (ever) that becoming a mum would be such...

Mom to Irish triplets

Mom to Irish triplets Irish triplets are when three children are born to the same mother within three years. A term I learnt while in hospital with Dawud my third baby.... “Irish triplets” it’s so surreal to know and see that I’m a mom of three children 3 years and under!! Alhamdulillah I feel blessed, overwhelmed and very tired. I have received messages from my followers asking if Little Muslim Books is still trading.... yes, yes and of course yes. Alhamdulillah! Yes we are! Although, I have been on unofficial maternity leave. Baby Dawud Javaid Alam graced us with his...

Rushing my meal and having visions of him screaming- called my mum in law when we got to the restaurant, before our food arrived and once we had eaten! I couldn’t wait to get...

We have lift off……..

Its been nearly a month since the launch and we have had a phenomenal response Alhamdulillah, feel very proud that Little Muslim Books is on its way of becoming a household name.
