About

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Sadaf Farooqi is a 38-year-old married, homeschooling unschooling mother of three children aged 11, 9 and 5.

She is a freelance writer who currently writes for AboutIslam (formerly OnIslam.net) and is self-publishing her past articles as books on Amazon.

Since she started writing, her articles have been published in several mainstream publications, such as Hiba Magazine, SISTERS Magazine, Saudi Gazette, and MuslimMatters.org.

Since 2006, Sadaf has authored over three hundred original published articles, including the posts on this blog, most of which can be found online, linked via lists on the right side of this blog (please excuse any dead links, as content on the Internet moves around a lot as the years pass).

Because Sadaf does not want her writings to just disappear from the online world, she has started self-publishing them in the form of books (in paperback and Kindle formats), which can be purchased on her author page at Amazon.com.

Sadaf is a self-confessed foodie who likes eating out. She has blogged about her gastronomical adventures in Karachi on her restaurant review blog, Karachi Eating Out, and nowadays shares clicks of the food that she enjoys on Instagram.

She has taught short Islamic subject courses, such as Fiqh of Zakah, Science of Hadith, Aqeedah, and Arabic Grammar, to young girls and women at the Al-Huda Institute in Pakistan.

She graduated in Computer Science from NUCES, National University of Computer and Engineering Sciences, in January 2000, after which she immediately enrolled in Al-Huda as a student, in its first Diploma Course in Karachi. The same year, she did her Masters in Computer Science from SZABIST Karachi, in its one-year evening program.

In late 2011/early 2012, Sadaf’s first non-fiction, self-help/advice book on Muslim marriage was published by International Islamic Publishing House (IIPH), called “Traversing the Highs and Lows of Muslim Marriage“.

All praises are for Allah, the One Who grants us opportunities to work for His cause.

May Allah accept all our efforts in His path. Ameen.

    Masha Allah you are an inspiration. Please make dua for me to use my time like you do and to be able to benefit mankind like ppl like you.

  2. Assalamualaikum warahmatullah

    Hope you are doing well. I am a sister living in the U.A.E. and am here in karachi for spending vacations. I have been following your blogs for quite a while. I was wondering if there was some possibility of contacting you.

    Thanking you in anticipation.

  4. Assalmaualaikum Sister,
    This is Ahmed, I just read some of your blog and wow your really good at writing and expressing your thoughts. I would appreciate it if you give me a few tips on how to chose topics that more appealing and less sensitive.

    1. Wa alaikumus salam,
      Whenever any blogger or writer asks me this, I always urge them to follow these tips (which I also apply):
      1. Write about what inspires you.
      2. Write in simple language.
      3. Write about what stirs your emotions e.g. an incident in which you saw someone being mistreated, or a calamity that affected many. When I get emotionally affected by something – anything – I more often than not end up writing about it.
      4. Become indifferent to what people think of your writing and/or what they want you to write. This is extremely important for you to stay in touch with your own unique writing style.
      5. Become thick-skinned enough to ignore negative comments and unnecessary criticism. This rule applies to anyone who wants to be successful in any field.
      6. Finally, seek the pleasure of Allah and regularly repent for your (writing) mistakes and slips.
      Hope this is of help to you.
      Allah knows best.

  5. Salam Alaikum Wa Rahmatu Allah!

    SubhanAllah! I just found your website and MAshaAllah I LOVE the articles that you’ve written. InshaAllah I pray that I too can write something of such relevance. (I’m in the process of writing a 2000 word assignment -__-, so technically I shouldn’t be here :P)

    Jazakum Allah Alf Khayr and May Allah bless you,

  6. I’ve recently finished up a short film with a friend of mine that’s meant to be a reminder and inspiration for Muslims all around.

    It’d be an honor if you’d review it on your blog with your comments and feedback.

    I figured your blog has a theme of Muslim identity I felt the following would be appropriate for your blog with your style of commentary for your readers:

    Looking forward to your reply!

  7. Asalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wabrakatuhu,
    Firstly JazakhAllahkhair for your beneficial reminders, may Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’Alaa grant you Taufeeq wal Ikhlass Ameen..
    If you dont mind ukhtee filaah I would like to give some advice based on the Prophetic saying ‘The deen is Naseeha ….’ I would prefer to give this advice privately as is the adab of giving advice however I was unable to locate an e-mail whilst searching your artcles etc, so pls forgive me for writing in this manner.
    Your articles are excellent and very motivational for the average Muslim who has been decieved to differing degrees by the modern/media saturated times in which we live ( Allah must’aan) so they really are very effective mashaAllah TabrakAllah… however ( sorry!) I feel I must urge you to please refrain from using certain language or phrases when speaking about the Best of Creation the Prophet Salalalahu alaihiwasalam, I know you had no intention of being disrespectful it is obvious, but shatan sometimes makes us say things that we believe are pleasing to Allah but they are not.
    Language when giving dawah is an important matter, and according to the scholars and my learning it is not appropriate to use the phrase “CHILL out like the Prophet” the term is street language and not worthy in a phrase whilst speaking about the Prophet salalahu alihui wasalam, I understand why you used it, its catching and appelas to the youth more.
    However there are certain principles that we must adhere to whilst giving dawah, and using noble language is one of those principles, you will not find any scholar past or present using such language whilst giving dawah, language is SO important that Umar Ibn Khattab (radhiallahu anhu) had a man punished for saying a sentence that was grammatical wrong! This great Noble companion would never had done that had the language not been relevant in the Deen.
    As Duaat we need to bring the youth up to the Noble standards of this perfect religion not bring the Noble religion down to the level of the youth of this society.
    Another phrase that I felt was inappropriate was referring to Mariam alaha salam as miss universe… again this is not honourable. To speak of one of the greatest women in the world using a phrase that was coined by the kuffar and conjures up images of naked women is surely not pleasing to Allah. As I said before I am not criticising you genereally I think your articles are excellent, it is just these two phrases that are not appropriate in accordance with the Qurana and the Sunnah and the way of the Righteous Companions.
    As you know ukhtee fillaah, actions must be possess 2 attributes before they are accepted, they must posses sincerity and they must be according to the sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (salalaahu alaihi wasalam), only noble language is used in both sources when refering to the Prophets and the Righteous.
    Please forgive me if you mind my advice, Allah is the witness that it is not meant with any malice at all. I am not as formally educated as you are mashaAllah but I have attended dars of Ulema whenever possible in Saudio Arabia where I reside, and have been studying for the last 19 years to the best of my abilty, I also know Na’ima Robert. Based on my learnings one must always adhere to using the very best of speech and use terms of honour when making reference to Prophets and Righteous slaves of Allah. Keep up the excellent work and feel free to write to me personally.
    Muslims are like a building one part supports the other…
    JazakhAllah khair ukhtee, waslam alaikum wa rahmatullah p.s. I’m a foodie too!

    1. Wa alaikumus Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,
      Jazakillahu khair for your sincere feedback and advice. 🙂
      Yes, insha’Allah, I will be more careful when using terms with the names of the Prophets and other pious predecessors in the future. One should always practice caution in such matters.
      As I continue to write, alhamdulillah, I learn from my mistakes, mostly because of sincere supporters such as yourself. 🙂 I have made mistakes in the past, and I hope and pray that Allah forgives and covers them.
      May Allah reward you!
      May I keep your comment published so that people learn from it? Or should I delete it?

  8. Amazing Blog sister you are doing a great thing here !!
    are u on twitter ?? or any wat we can contact you
    Thanks alot for your blog on food in karachi , great work ,
    Thanks Alot
    Again !!!

  9. Asalamu Alaikum Sadaf!

    I just found your Karachi Eating Out blog and LOVED it! I will be visiting Karachi soon so this totally helped me pick and choose where I should go, and where I shouldn’t. Your writing is also very clear, expressive, and to the point MashAllah.

    Looking forward to reading more from you InshAllah.

    1. Wa Alaikumus Salam,
      So glad the blog was of help to you both. That was the reason I started it.
      I myself wanted a website detailing all the eateries in Karachi (including menu details as well), which a potential customer could peruse to decide where to eat. When I realized that no such website existed, I decided to make one myself. All it needed was a bit of photography when eating out anywhere with my family, and thanks to the ease provided nowadays by modern blogging tools, the rest, as they say, is history.

  10. i just graduated this summer from fast-nu,and have started an understanding the Quran course at al-ilm, when i meet my batchmates they all try to convince me that i’m wasting my “skills” , even though they know not that they’re the ones missing out 🙂 even so finding out about ppl like you, who have tread the same path,is inspiring! jazakAllah khairun you’ve re-motivated me:)

    1. You’re right, I went through a lot of what you are hearing from people right now, Mariyam. It went on for a few years. May Allah grant you patience and steadfastness.
      You know, as you get older, you’ll realize that most of what people say is not important any way. Most of them get proved wrong over time. It is important for a believer treading the path of knowledge of Deen to see who is the one saying something, to really comprehend its truth, authenticity and relevance.
      Allah knows best.

  11. salamunalaikum!

    Mashallah-Tabarkallah!

    Blessed be you and your efforts, in spreading the truth and inspiring the youth.

    May Allah guide our hearts and give our steps steadfastness.

  12. Assalamu Alaikum Sister Sadaf

    I desperately need some advice. Is it okay if I email you at the address you have provided above? I know you must be super busy, but I really really need to talk about something.

    JazaakiAllahu Khaira

  13. asalamo alikum..
    this is now one of my favorite blog..and can u please give me refernece of “When the going gets tough, it means you are on the right path…” is that your saying..??..its actually beautiful..!!

      1. Based on my experiences … Choosing to do the right thing is not really difficult … Sticking to that choice is the hardest part. That is when you’re “bombarded” with the tricks of Shaytaan … The “aazmaish” started the moment you made the choice.

  14. Assalam o alaikum…

    Just saw your blog and read your post on love and marriage … To be honest I was pleasantly surprised to read that post and loved how you structured that post.

    Keep up the good work …. May Allah guide us all … Aameen! 🙂

    Btw, another pleasant surprise was you graduated from FAST … Nice! 🙂

  15. u have a great blog! i have been reading it for the past two hours and although I did not leave a single message, I must say, all ur posts are very informative and very very interesting at the same time. May Allah give u the strength to continue this great job that u are doing.

  16. aoa. Sadaf baji i visited your blog first time. I have done my course from Taleem ul Quran 7th batch Islamabad. =)
    Barakillahu lak fi ilmika wa’amalik.

  17. Assalamualaikum!! Ive been looking for a way to contact you ! ive been doing some research on homeschooling, and came upon your article on muslimmatters.org , which is also here on your blog, I see now.

    you wrote about getting in touch with other such families, which got me thinking; where can get a HS-ing mommies circle myself? i dont know anybody around, and im facing problems convincing my in-laws…so much so that ive started doubting my capabilties to do so… which leads me back to do a little soul-searching. The reason i want to HS is, to build a lasting bond with my children, and to get closer to Allah and learn more about Islam. both the kids and me. I am making baby steps to cutting down on TV and youtube videos (nursery rhymes that i put on for my 18month old) to the minimum.

    but i feel it’d be a great help if i find other mothers too who HS. That support is invaluable… as I mentioned earlier I have an 18 month old, and by tradition she’ll be starting school soon. Im currently gathering Waldorf and Montessori syllabi and visiting talibiddeenjr.blogspot.com , but there are some very interesting readers’ comments on that too, which I’ll explore further.

    so much to do, so little time.
    Remember us in your prayers too please.

    jazakallah

  18. Your blog is really helpful. You have mentioned that you did ‘Taleem-al-Quran’ course with your Masters in the same year. I will be starting my ACCA studies this year and am also looking into the Taleem-al-Quran course. I would like to know how much time comittment is required for the course.

    1. السلام عليكم
      I did the Taleem Al-Quran course over ten years ago. At that time, it was a rigorous 6-days-a-week, 1.5-year-long Diploma course with classes from 8:30 a.m to 1:30 p.m. I did my MCS side-by-side by attending 3-hour classes 4 days a week, from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m in the evenings. Since I was single, I was able to dedicate myself this way to studying full-time, alhamdulillah.
      Now the different branches of Al-Huda offer a variety of courses. Perhaps you can email Al-Huda at info@alhudapk.com and ask them for details about the latest Taleem Al-Quran courses available in different areas.

  19. As-Sal mu `Alaykum

    My name is Aïshah, I’m a french convert, mother of 4 living in Algeria, and I’m actually correcting your book (Highs & Lows in Muslim Marriage) which has been translated into french by another sister of the IIPH french team. I’m very impressed by the huge amount of work you do, Masha’Allah. You really are an example for all the sisters who want to put plenty of Hassanat in their “luggage” for the “Big Day”… when Allah Ta’ala will juge us on what we’ve done on this earth.
    I pray that your work will help all of us (me first…) Insha’Allah to deal with the family issues which are so important for the strengthening of the Ummah.
    I will look further into your blog Insha’Allah, it is full of ressources Masha’Allah,

    Barak’Allahoufiki for the sharing of your knowledge with us,
    May Allah Ta’ala reward you, Amin
    May He guide us all on His right path, Amin
    May He help us always having the good intention in all things we undertake, Amin

    Fi Amani’Llah, Aïshah

    1. وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته
      Ameen to all your gracious dua’s, A’ishah. 🙂 May Allah bless you.
      After reading your comment, I am so humbled before Allah! Subhan Allah! I never could have imagined seeing this day: having my written words translated into other languages across the world, and read in other countries.
      May Allah accept and bless our endeavors.

  26. As salaam o Alaikum!! I am glad i found your blog Alhumdulillah through various links. I am currently enrolled in Tafheem e Deen course in Al Huda International in Dubai studying under Sister Sabeen. I had started my blog a few months ago: http://www.healingursoul.wordpress.com and was looking around as to where i could post my articles for maximum dawah. It was lovely coming across your website!!!

    1. وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته
      Masha’Allah, good to be acquainted with you and your blog. 🙂
      Sabeen was my classmate in the first batch of Al-Huda Karachi, if I am not mistaken.
      Jazakillahu khair for your comment.

  27. Assalalamaleikum , I came across your blog while searching for some articles on hijabs and abayas to get inspiration for my upcoming abaya venture. Its been more than hour and I’m still stuck on your blog 🙂 I can relate to most of your articles and your style of writing is amazing mashallah. With two little girls, I feel like I hardly have enough time to do even my household chores but women like you are an inspiration. Inshallah, I’m also planning to take up the Taleem ul Quran course soon. Your food pics and restaurant reviews told me that we seem to share a love for food too which made me start a food blog recently. BTW, if you could suggest a name for my abaya venture I would be really obliged. Inshallah, I shall be returning here frequently.

    1. وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته
      Thank you and jazakillah khair. 🙂
      Hmm, name for an abaya venture…how about: “Covered Charisma”, “Charming and Chaste”, “Fabrics and Falls”, or simply, “Haya”?

  28. Assalam u Alaikum warahmatullah,
    I wanted to have a look at the table of contents of your book, the IIPH site is not showing it up, can you tell if they can be viewed elsewhere?

    JazakAllah Khayr,

    1. Really, you are the funny girl (meaning, with a good sense of humor) behind malonama? I have visited it twice already. Interesting posts, may Allah grant you even more barakah and guidance. Ameen.
      I can see your blog becoming successful with time, by Allah’s will. 🙂
      بارك الله فيك

  29. AssalamoAlaykum Sister,
    MashaaAllah I read your blogs often but I recently bought your book abt Marriage. Alhumdollillah just wonderful. May Allah(SWT) reward you for all your efforts. Just an incident to let you know its effects,
    I am Alhumdollillah a hijab wearing Muslimah for the last 11 yes and never was effected but the constant opposition from the family. But over the years gained some weight and was one day getting low self esteem issues. And Lo and Behold I am on chapter 9 ( the incessantly attractive wife) of your book and my spirits were back where they should be for a Muslimah:)
    just let you how your work effects your sisters in deen. Alhumdollillah.
    Can I meet you some day, if possible.
    Regards

    1. وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته Ash,
      I am so happy that my book lifted your spirits. Alhamdulillah! It is normal for women to experience issues about appearance and weight. I have been in the same boat, hence the article.
      Nevertheless, Allah is the sole source of any and all benefit that comes to others through my writing.
      Thank you SO much for leaving your feedback here – it in turn lifted my spirits! 🙂
      Yes insha’Allah we can meet, if you are based in Karachi or if you visit it.

  30. Asalam mu alaikum wr wb. Hope all is well inshAllah.

    I came across your blog after purchasing your book on marriage. When you have some time inshAllah sister, please do check out my blogs:

    My only advise would be, sister the pictures on the side of the blog make it difficult to read the context of the actual blog. Allah knows best.

    1. وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته
      I had no idea the food pictures were that distracting! Maybe I should do something about that, if they really are undermining readers’ attention to the content of the posts, insha’Allah. I put them up to add a “human element” to this blog i.e. to show that I am just a regular Muslim sister who cooks food at home for her family and lives a normal life, just like everyone else.
      Jazak Allah khair for pointing this out.

  31. Assalamo’alaykum,

    I am considering homeschooling my children and need some advice. Is there a possibility of contacting you?

  32. Salaam sis, may Allah bless your efforts in writing amazing thought-provoking articles and may He allow it to benefit the ummah:)
    Nothing could describe it better than: MashaAllah, laa hawla wa laa quwwata illaa billah:)
    Most blogs post very very long articles on social psychology and their language is also very sophisticated. Also, those blogs will usually have non-Islamic ideologies. So, Alhamdulillah, Allah made me come across this blog,His great blessing to the Ummah:)
    May Allah grant you strength and sincerity and also may He keep those ideas flowing so the Ummah could be benefitted.
    See you in Jannah inshaAllah:)

  33. Assalamu Alaikum!

    You’re my inspiration and role model Alhumdulillah. Is there any way to contact you privately for same naseehah? Email perhaps?

    Jazak Allahu Khaira

  34. Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,
    sister is there any way to mail you. …talk to you
    I stay in saudi Arabia & in need of knowledge that shoild inspire me to do good deed…
    plz mail me

  35. Assalamalaikum. May Allah reward you. I need some guidance about homeschooling and keeping close to the Quran and Sunnah. If you could advise me, it would be awsome.
    JazakAllah.
    Aisha

  36. Assalam-o-Alaikum!

    We would really like to arrange your live sessions at least once a month for our online students around the world.
    Do let me know if u would like to cooperate to work together!
    Jazaka Allah Kahir

  37. Assalaam walaykum! I am tremendously grateful to have come across your blog. I have read a few articles and have been very empowered! ‘m interested in talking to you/asking some questions. Is there a way we can communicate via email? Jazakillahu khayran!

      1. Assalaam walaykum, Jazakillahu khayran – your response alone has provided me with such relief. I am so excited to email you soon Insha’Allah! xoxo

  38. Where is the archive of all the blog posts for this site? The sidebar only lists “recent posts” up to a certain article. I can’t keep scrolling indefinitely to reach the first post 😦

  39. Greetings! I happened to find your blog while browsing. I love your writing style. I also love your passion. It’s my wish that the world can become more connected and understand that we’re all humans and come from the same Source. I think sometimes our different religions separate us from the common humanity that it is crucial for us to understand that we all share. We’ll never all be the same religion, but we’ll always all be humans while we walk the earth. If we could all love and appreciate how much we have in common, we could eliminate so much fear. Anyway — I just love your blog. It’s wonderful. I’m a writer myself. I live in Colorado, USA, near the mountains. I wonder if you’ll see this post? I hope so. Best wishes!

    1. Greetings of peace to you too, Kathy! See? I’ve seen your gracious comment and am responding to tell you that I appreciate it. Truly, we are all one as humankind (creation of Allah) and share much.

      Thank you for leaving your comment. I also think it’s awesome that you live close to nature. 🙂

      1. Hi Sadaf!! May I please ask if I can send you an email and ask you a few questions? I’ll send to sadaff@hotmail.com. I’m writing a story for my Colorado newspaper about how people around the world need to come together, and I would like to mention you in my story. Even though I just found you! That’s ok. Based on your blog, I feel like I know you a little bit. Many of your words could apply to so many women in the US also. The Internet changes everything now. It can be used for such positive purposes. Anyway I’ll email you if that’s ok, and if whenever you have time you could email me back, that would be great. Thank you so much! It’s a great pleasure speaking with you. Honestly, I think that if the world is going to change for the better, women will play a central role.

  40. Assalaamu alaikum. Needed your urgent reply. I want to use a part of your Article: “Eye Opening Words in the Quran Describing the Life of this World” along with your name in a Book that I am writing to inspire the Muslim Youth. My email Id is smr.vta@gmail.com

      It would greatly help for you to consult a child psychologist and seek their counsel about the best approach with your son. Get him professionally evaluated, and then take it from there, once you find out the level/degree of his dyslexia. There are now special fonts available to help dyslexic children to read.
      My advice would be to read up about dyslexia but never use this term in front of your son, when talking to/about him. Do not let him know that he is any way less than other kids. Observe him closely and then help him pursue his interests.
      Contrary to what the world says and thinks, reading and writing is not everything. Boys can pursue many careers that do not involve much reading, such as sports (Hashim Amla :)), flying (pilots), engineering (building/inventing things, even without a college degree), architecture, business – to name but a few.
      Your unconditional love and nurturing will be the best gift your son will receive from you in this early part of this life.
      May Allah be your guide. 🙂

  43. Assalam o Alaekum wa rehmatullahi wa brakatuhu dear Sadaf!!!

    I just came across your blog and it is one of the most inspiring and edifying blog on practically living Islam in this day and age Ma Sha Allah. May Allah SWT accept all your effort, reward you immensely in dunya and Akhirah and make your spouse and children the coolness of your eyes!
    Amin!

    I am really interested in looking forward to reading your books. However I have a little query. I live in Wah Cantt, Pakistan. Are your books available at Darussalam or Al Balagh Store in Islamabad? Or else how can I have them delivered conveniently in Pakistan?

    Jazzakum Allahu Kherun Kaseran,

    May Allah SWT guide you to multiple pathways of His,
    Amin,

    Best Regards,
    Munira

    1. عليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته
      Jazakillah khair for your supportive and appreciative feedback, sister Munira. 🙂

      Right now, my books are not available for purchase in Pakistan. However, if you have any relatives residing in the West, you could request them to bring these books for you whenever they visit next.
      I pray that Allah makes it easy for my writings to reach whoever is desirous of reading them. Ameen.
