"Proud to be born and raised as a Muslim. My faith is very important to me but not just as a set of rituals and “do’s and don’ts”. It defines me as a person and shapes my worldview; it helps me develop deeper and more meaningful relationships with my surrounding and most importantly enables me to balance between material life and spirituality.

At the core of my faith is the acceptance of God’s existence and His presence in my daily life."
