Asalam alaykum sis..
My name is Zuliat Lawal and your host for the Journey to Motherhood Workshop Session In shaa Allah.
I am the founder of Liamanah, an Islamic Parenting Hub which advocates parenting following Islamic and Positive Discipline principles. I am also a Chartered Accountant with over 7 years of experience in consulting and was a Manager at one of the Big Four Consulting firms in Nigeria.
I compiled the Mommy’s Dua Book (a prayer book which uses the most beautiful 99 names of Allah to word Duas for our children) which went viral in the global muslim community at the beginning of Ramadan 2019.
At Liamanah, we also run a Positive Parenting Online Course for Muslim Women and the Parenting for Jannah Academy which are programs focused specifically on implementing Islamic and Positive Discipline principles to raise the next generation of Muslims.
I believe nurturing empowering adult-child relationship is at the core of a strong community and raising the next Ummah.
The Journey to Motherhood Series is one i am deeply passionate about because I believe as muslim women in the African community, we do not have enough access to a safe haven, a place where we can connect, discuss and learn from each other’s experiences without bias or fear of stigmatisation.
We don’t get a lot of pre-marital counselling due to our culture and discussions about intimacy are like a taboo. Sadly, the flipside is lack of preparation for intimacy and marital life affects our psyche and mindset such that some women never enjoy their sexual lives and their marriage.
Also, we tend to navigate pregnancy and motherhood without harnessing the rewards from a muslim’s perspective with clarity in preparing for their parenting journey seamlessly with guidance from the Quran and Sunnah amidst the pressures of coping with today’s society.
I wish someone had told me a lot of what we would be discussing at the workshop when i was younger, I believe we can learn from other’s experiences and we should get guidance concerning the phases of our journey as muslim women.
Would love to host you and some other amazing muslim sisters at the event In shaa Allah.
