5.0 out of 5 stars Journey of a Muslimah homemaker 30 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really wasn't sure what to expect with this book. I have never been the type of person to enjoy housework and the thought of someone telling me how perfect they are at it would always make me feel less inclined to want to do it. In the past i had the attitude of "Well others live here too why should i always be the one to do the cleaning" or "Surely my life is worth more than just tidying up after other people"

However i had heard lots of great things about this book and decided to give it a go. I was not one bit disappointed!

How can i describe this book? As i read through it i felt like i had a friend in the room with me giving me a gentle push to look around me at the house i have been given and to embrace being the one to turn it from a simple house in to a beautiful home in which my family feel safe and secure. A place where my children and husband love to spend their time. A place to escape to when the outside world brings all its troubles. If my house is a mess how can it offer those things.

This book gives a sweet reminder of just how wonderful the Muslim woman (well women in general) are and how she has been given such an important role in life. I never once felt like i had failed by previously not wanting to accept this role of homemaker, in fact quite the opposite.

The following morning after i woke for the first prayer of the day i found myself staying up instead of heading straight back to bed. I cleaned the kitchen and put away all the plates and cups, i mopped the floor and then sat down and had a cup of tea before sorting the laundry into piles for each person. I was amazed at the feeling that came with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed this, inspiring. 7 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I didn't give it a 5 star purely because it was a very short read not a very big book.
But I really enjoyed it, and have benefited from it , I look forward to reading the Thoughts of a domestic darling by the same author :) which is a bigger book and seems more detailed than this one. I loved how much research she put in to this though, and the little recipes and inspiring quotes. Glad I bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reviewed by Umm Faheem Rasool A Freelance Writer For Noon Publications 16 Mar 2013
By Noon Publications - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I can only speak for myself, but The Journey of Muslimah Homemaker: Spirituality in Homemaking by Sister Ameer Rahim was a perfect reminder for my heart and soul.

Growing up influenced by all the `modern woman' rhetoric that often implies staying home and caring for one's family--especially one's husband--is akin to slavery and oppression, this concise, 34-page booklet was a breath of fresh air. While reading it, I was able to release the tension from the schizophrenic mindset of trying to be a housewife yet worrying about keeping up with secular society expectations. It reminded me that I don't have to feel rushed, unfulfilled and angry because concentrating on one's family is NOT to give up on self. How easily it is to forget the lofty value Allah swt placed on motherhood and wifedom!

Ameera allows us a glimpse at the process she underwent to get to the point of cherishing her roles. Quranic and hadithic advice peppered throughout the booklet reminds traditional, stay-at-home moms that they are on the right track in following the "ways of old."
There is an ample amount of positive advice, religious wisdom and straightforward "girl talk" in The Journey of a Muslimah Homemaker.
The booklet begins with the chapter "Happy Muslimah Homemaker," her personal tale of how the author came to realize her role as wife vis a vis Islamic mandate. She admits the journey was not easy after being divorced and on her own for some time. But, with prayer and study and simply submitting to the beauty of being the `soul' of the home, she learned to cherish Allah's gifts of allowing her the freedom to stay home, and to serve Him by serving her family. She is free enough to also take care of herself as well as increase her spirituality by, for instance, dhikring while cleaning.

Included in this booklet are motivational quotes Ameera says she reads everyday. She explains that she actively decides to embrace her blessings and the struggles that life brings. The booklet also comprises comfort food/love recipes (bread, danish, cheesecakes and muffins), resources to traditional housewife blogs and Islamic lectures, motivational quotes for homemaking, chapters entitled, "the Righteous or Rebellious Wife (the wives of Lut or Noah vs. Hajar, Khadijah)," "Service with a Smile," "Virtuous Homemaking Qualities," various duas for good, bad and impatient times, and more.

With a forward by her husband Ameer, and a dedication to family and close sister friends, it is apparent that Ameera's journey to becoming a Traditional Muslimah homemaker was, and is, full of love for The Creator and the people He has blessed her with.

In essence, The Journey of a Muslim Homemaker is a motivational introduction to the philosophy of fully welcoming being a wife and mother, and above all, thanking God for the blessing. It's an easy read just short enough to influence and inspire, but not too long to overwhelm.
Ameera's friend, Zarinah's quote in the dedication clarifies the bottom line:

"Always try to make pleasing Allah first a priority. Accept the challenges as a normal part of being on the righteous path. Learn your deen and always apply what you know to the best of your abilities. There's always room for growth, and no matter what your family might be struggling with, you can be very happy knowing you're pleasing The Creator, serving others, especially your family."

5.0 out of 5 stars Alhumduillah(praise be to Allah) A really good book 6 April 2014
By Tiffany - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a great reminder of how we should be towards our husbands and children. Be grateful and not look at our families as burderns, but blessings. Alhumduillah, the many Quran and Hadith references make this soo successful, some folks wonder how to apply whats in Quran and sunnah to our life when it come to certain things, I think this book gives a good example of how you do this with your family. I really suggest Muslim mothers and wives to buy this book. And for the stay at home mothers who need a pick-er upper this is definatly for you!

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love this book. The Author inspires and weaves hope into the mind of the reader. She makes you believe that you can become a domestic goddess by giving simple tips that will automatically ensured success. I love that this book is spiritual and that it reminds me that in order for me to be a good wife and mother, I must have a relationship with the Creator. I give this book 40 stars but I am only given the option of five. I wish the Writer success with all her ventures. She is indeed a queen.
