Understanding Trust and How it Works

Today I was reading an article about non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, which for those of you who don’t know, basically means preventing nuclear weapons from falling into the hands of irresponsible and unsavoury men (as if they already aren’t in the hands of such men already), and I learnt a valuable lesson about trust.

Ramadan Reflections: Menstruation Should Not Be A Taboo

My relationship with periods has been complex; as is the case for many Muslim females across the world. We are often made to feel as though menstruation is something we should not only refrain from talking about openly, but something we should be ashamed of.

Why Muslim activism is the biggest threat to the global status quo

There are two things that power structures tend to do: 1) avoid accountability, and 2) try to keep the power they have. This is particularly so if they have something to hide and are up to no good. It’s no secret now that Western government officials from various nations are involved in arms trade contracts […]
