We speak with Aliyah Umm Raiyaan, author of Ramadan Reflections: A Guided Journal, on her book and on journaling as a practice to become more akhirah-focussed.
Aliyah Umm Raiyaan converted to Islam more than two decades ago and has been involved in UK dawah for over 20 years. In 2010, she founded Solace UK, a charity that helps women who have converted to Islam and find themselves in difficulty. In 2019 she launched a YouTube show called Honest Tea Talk which brought unscripted conversations to the table about raw unspoken topics related to the Muslim community. She continues to devote her time to helping women achieve their full potential whilst emphasising the importance of developing a personal and close relationship with Allah. She lives in East London where she home educates her children.
