Hajj is the fifth pillar of Islam and it is obligatory on every adult who can afford it. I had the blessing of Allah to perform hajj couple of years back. Before going there, I was as nervous as anyone can be regarding preparation. It is a journey in itself. I got benefited from various sources (internet+friends+family) and want to share my experience so it may help someone like me. There are two things to prepare, spiritual preparation and physical preparation. Everyone knows the best what is inside their hearts other than Allah. So I cannot recommend anything about spiritual preparation. It is definitely unto each person’s capacity and you know how to come out of your comfort zone (your normal spiritual capacity) without over doing it.

So why we consider ourselves in their current position while working on just the idea? Your competitors can be your inspiration and helps you in organising and learning in your field. Now I m researching in the specific area of my field of interest and more passionate about new findings, that means more competitor analysis spreadsheets!
Coming back to blogging after a long time There is something very important going on in my professional and personal life. I will be mum third time insha Allah this year and my new business will be born too insha Allah. After spending so much time reading and discussing my passion of UX design and research with experts and colleagues, I couldn’t stop myself to start my own business in the area . I also know that the previous knowledge is definitely not going to waste and my development experience will be so helpful in my next venture. I have started to work with Saiyiddah Zaidi in her coaching program Liberated life live. She is the person I wanted to work with from long time but now, I think is the best time so couldn’t resist to enrol in her program. I have choosen her because she is highly qualified business coach and identifies your issues/struggles at very human level. I will insha Allah write about my journey in starting new business. All the progress I have been making and any important step and challenges I am facing in getting my goals.
