Updates… December 6, 2007

Posted by Sis Shaykha in Announcements.

Asalaamu Alaaikum,

Haven’t been updating this blog lately. But good news, my *new* ilm-centered blog is Alhamdulilah up, not complete as of yet, I’m still updating. I won’t “link” or post it yet.. But when the design, sections and categories are all up, then I will def [insha’Allah] give you all the heads up…


Thanks for dropping by 🙂

Wa’alaykum Asalaam

P.S. Check out this really beautiful recitation by an Albanian Hafidh brother named Mehdi Goga (his cousin was actually a student of Imam Albani, you can find his recitation at youtube as well):

Fatihah (x2) & Baqara 2: 132 – 137

2. MR - December 17, 2007

Are you really a Shaykha?

3. Sis Shaykha - December 17, 2007

Wa’alaykum Asalaam Huda, MR

Huda- Yep, it’s a pretty neat recitation from the brother…
Thanks sister, yeah it’s almost done. I can’t wait to “reveal” it. :p

MR- Yes….but only in my dreams. :p It’s weird actually i was just going to put up a section on my new blog explaining that. Since it’s a blog focused on ilm, I wouldn’t want to cause any confusion….
But glad you asked…

To my knowledge “Shaykha” means two things 1) old/elderly woman 2) knowledgeable/learned woman.

I am neither lol. Actually it is my youtube username. Chose it because it’s my mother’s nickname for me around the house: “Shaykha or Shaykhat”. Also because that is what I want to be insha’Allah someday: a Shaykha.
But I can see how it can be misleading (one person asked me are you going to pass a ruling, you are a shaykha aren’t you?? lol),
….and it can seem a bit arrogant. But that was not my intention.

Anyway, sorry for the long explanation and confusion. Anisa is my real name, shaykha is nothing more than an online username just like hmm…”Mujaahid”. 😀

Thanks for dropping by, both of you.

Wa’alaykum Asalaam…..
