Who Am I?!?!

Asalamualaikum !! =) 

Nasmeera Firdous here!! (Although I prefer it to be spelled as Nasmira). A proud hijabi, a passionate writer, artist and a nutritionist, I tend to write about anything and everything under the sun, ranging from Nutrition to Islam, fiction to real life events. Writing gives me a one way ticket into my fictional world, helping me escape from realities.

Currently pursuing Bachelors of Arts in Islamic Studies from Islamic Online University (an amazing initiative, for which I pray Allah (swt) showers His blessings upon each and every SINGLE member behind this university).

So, in this blog: [:D]

You will stumble upon articles written by me for Productive Muslim and Habibi Halaqas! =)

Don’t be surprised to see some creative posts related to canvas painting, crocheting and fabric painting (my other hobbies) OR just my musings!!

Happy reading!!

    As-Salaam Alaikum Nasmira!

    Can I say I’m super-excited to find your blog? I’ve read some of your articles on Productive Muslim (yes, I’m head over heels in love with that website :)) and masha Allah they’re amazing. I especially loved the article “What Are You Striving for: Dunya or Akhirah?” :)

    One of my bloggie pals, Umm Khaleel recommended your blog to me (actually she said it about a week back, but I got sidetracked and only now just managed to get here: )) and now that I’m here, I can’t wait to browse through all the stuff you have! Especially the artistic stuff you’ve mentioned :)

    Me off to poke around now, and I feel it’s only fair to let you know that you might be seeing a whole lot of me in future! :P

    • Nasmira says:

      Wa alaikum salaam sis! :)
      Welcome welcome..I’m glad you stopped by..
      I’m excited that your excited!
      and OMG!! we have the same crush :P Productive Muslim..(well, sharing is caring they say)..haha :)
      I’m really glad you liked my articles sis..its all a blessing from Allah swt, end of the day..
      that’s so sweet of Umm Khaleel to have recommended!
      I would be more than happy to have you around! :)
      You have a super blog yourself..expect me to be stalking you quite often now.. ;)

  12. Assalamualikum! Alhamdulillah for the chance to meet such a talented Muslimah like you are..I’ll be visiting often Insha’Allah!

  13. Serenity Pearls says:

    Salam wrwb, just dropped by to tell you that, [and this is really random so just bare with me!] I knew drawing faces is an issue, still I casually allowed myself the display of emoticons [on my blog] as I was not sure whether or not the similar would apply to smilies as well. I felt uncomfortable inside even as I did so but nonetheless went ahead with it. Alhamdulillah, though, after seeing your blog and seeing this habit in PRACTICE [since you have opted out the option of displaying emoticons here] I was motivated to do so as well. Jazakillah khayran katheer for just, you know, being around. Sometimes just having the right company can do wonders. May Allah swt grant you the best rewards for all the good that you do inshaAllah =)

    [p.s. sorry for being so emo here, I’m usually not like this :P]

    • Nasmira says:

      Wa alaikum salaam wr wb sis!! :)
      SubhanAllah..I never thought it could have that effect on anyone..and im completely completely humbled by ur comment here..
      Ameen to your amazing dua..May Allah swt bless you dear sis and grant u the highest level in jannah!! :) :)
      Stay blessed!! <3

  14. Bint Maqsood says:

    Assalamualikum sister. Hope you are doing good.
    I’ve a question actually. As you live in India, do you know any islamic boutiques here? Coz I just shifted here and started hijab but I couldn’t find any. It will be great if you could help me. :)
    Jazak’Allah Khair

  15. Bint Maqsood says:

    Hyderabad. :) What abt you?

    • Nasmira says:

      Oh! then do not look beyond Charminar…you have a gazillion shops which sell all kinds of hijabs for all types of rates..besides you get hijabs just about anywhere..malls, small shops, big shops,,you name it, you get it,,,just about ANYWHERE coz 40% of Hyderabad’s population are Muslims! :)

  16. Bint Maqsood says:

    I don’t have a problem in finding hijabs, Alhamdulilah, it easy to get them here. But I NEED sleeve extensions and those neck covering thingys. :$

    • Nasmira says:

      Oh those!!! I haven’t found those shops yet !! Even I’m hunting for them..especially the sleeve extension ones..I even go around showing the sleeve extensions in shops here..but they don’t have them..I doubt if they have the neck extension ones too..I’m on a lookout almost every time I go for shopping but haven’t found any yet..will surely mail you if I get hold of any shops here..surely, inshaAllah :)
      plz let me know if you get hold of any too :)
      jazakumAllahu khayran!!

  17. Bint Maqsood says:

    LOL! Insha’Allah will let you know. Jazak’Allah Khair Sister :)
    May Allah bless you with the best of both the worlds. Ameen :)
    Remember me in your duas sister, need ’em to pass my exams with flying colors.

    • Nasmira says:

      Barakallahu feek dear sis!!
      May Allah (swt) make it easy for you and make you pass with FLYING COLORS!! :) :D
      Remember me in your duas too..
      Ameen to your beautiful dua..
      may Allah give all that and more! :)

      Asalamualaikum wr wb sis!
      JazakumAllahu khayran for such a lovely comment. Ameen to your beautiful dua, may Allah swt accept it. Do drop in whenever you can! Would be nice to have you around :)

  22. Sureiya says:

    Asalaamu Alaykum – Thanks to your awesome “Khushoo in Salaah” i discovered you :-) Realled elevated my views on certain things. jazakallah :-) I read that you’re also a practising nutritionist! I was hoping to bring up a topic of discussion but not sure if this is the right place? Is there a private messaging forum or email address I can use? It revolves around using food as medicine and combining it with sincere Dua to cure body ailments…
    Look forward to some feedback.

    • Nasmira says:

      Wa alaikum salam wr wb
      A big jazakumallahu khayran for your kind words. All praise belongs to Allah swt alone. :)
      Would be glad to have you here around my blog more frequently inshaAllah.
      I’m not really sure if I’m eligible to talk about dua+medicine ‘coz that’s seeking shifa with a very high level of tawakkul, but you could give it a try, maybe? :)

  23. Ummsalih says:

    Assalam u Alaikum..

    Masha Allah you’ve got a nice blog! :)

  24. White Pearl says:
