    1. Anything can inspire me from the material I want to use to what I feel like making with it.

      I’m still trying to find myself and figure out a lot of things as well, I think with the right people around you and God’s guidance, things should be fine. Lol. So, Just Dua it.

  1. Salam Alaykum
    What makes you so UNIQUE?
    What are your inspirations?
    and will U be able to tutor my “Insha Allah”, cos I’ll want to be a lil better than U.
    Thanks and Jazaakhumu Llahu Khayran

  2. Salam alaykum,
    I’d like to know how you work around your medical profession, art, fashion, food and all that you do without getting them meddled up. Cos you seem to me like “All in one”. =)

    1. I currently do not work with my medical profession. I continue to think of ways I can actually still incorporate it into all I do and I don’t believe no knowledge is wasted.
      For the rest, I just make sure I do something on each subject everytime. It’s tiring but fun. Lol. It takes a conscious effort.

  3. I’m curious about your background. You seem like a very enlightened person. Where did you grow up, what primary and secondary school did you go? I know you studied abroad too but did you ever attend a Nigerian University?

    I am a Christian…and I love your blog and style.

    1. Thank you very much for the love! I really appreciate it.
      I was only born in Lagos but I grew up and had my formative years in Ilorin, Kwara State where i attended University of Ilorin.
      Primary: Ajoke Model Nursery and Primary School
      Secondary: FGC Ilorin and Unilorin Secondary School

  4. Asalam Alaikum sis, I hope you are well. It’s interesting as I was planning to send you an email to ask about how your work of art, what inspires you and then I saw this blog post!

    Did you take any particular courses to help hone your visual art skills? How did you get clarity to work in the space that you’re in now as it’s clearly different from your medical professional training?

    May Allah SWT put barakah in your efforts and reward you. Ameen.

    1. Wa alaikum salam warahmatullah! I am doing very well, Al hamdulilah. Ameen and Jazakallah khair. I didn’t take any particular creative course but I am on the internet for over 12 hours in a day to take a lot of information in and learn. There were also lots of trial and errors.

      Working with what I have now was probably some sort of guidance. Since I’ve always had the flair for arts and making art, It took getting attention with it (without any conscious effort) to get me to face it head on now. I really believe in a divine intervention as well. Lol. Because, frankly, it just happened. Now there is a conscious effort to make it work.

  5. I dont have anything to ask but to commend you. I must really say that you have avery unique talent… May Allh SWT continue to bless you and all you lay your hands on. I must confess that am so attached to all ur pages… I actually do stalk them. Thank you for always making every pieceof art count.

  6. what is your say about the islamic dressing of the hausa and the foreign modest dressing around the world? please reply to my email account. also what inspired you into blogging?

  7. can you tutor me on how to blog cause i will love to blog on modest fashion. please can you have a lecture on “”the act of mixing culture with religion”” cause it is ram-pad in the northern part of Nigeria

  8. Hi Haneefah,
    Great blog. I found you via an ad for your Hijarbie and while I simply LOVE the idea that young muslim girls will have a doll that is supposed to reflect their image, I am confused as to why there are no black ones. I would have thought as a young black Nigerian muslim woman, that would be the FIRST type that you would create as that would be a true reflection of yourself and the millions of muslim girls growing up in Nigeria and around the world.

    Please keep up the good work and think about adding the black dolls to your collection.

  9. Maa Shaa Allaah. Great work there sis. Funny enough, just going through these comments make me feel better. Ever since i chanced upon your Instagram page, even before the ‘Hijarbie’ page, I’ve really felt connected with you in God’s name. i actually felt you were living my life for me. Lol. I blog(although not as well as you d), I’m into art and fashion as well, i write and bead(N.AYSHA ACCESSORIES-although i was wasn’t taught and did not learn anything from any video), i do a little imperfect sewing and I’m now working as an internal auditor. Honestly, I’m also still trying to find myself despite the fact that people think I’ve got things all figured out and I’m focused. Sometimes, it can be so overwhelming especially when you have little human support. But Alhamdulillah, Allah (swt) has seen me through everything. However, my question to you is, how do you manage to do things at a time without them getting in the way of other things. Timing is really a major worry. Trust me, you’re doing a great job that inspires me. Ma Allah(swt)continue to guide you. Aameen.

      1. I don’t even think I do a great job at ‘managing’ but Al hamdulilah. Sometimes, just because I do so much, I feel one suffers over the other, Support is really important and I’m working towards that and I think with God, everything is and will be cool to be honest. It’s not fun, but the things I do make me happy, so it is worthwhile.

        Thank you. Ameen to your prayers and I wish you all the best too..
