The Journey Continues...

The Journey Continues...

In our ever-changing world, we are constantly being flooded with reminders every single day. Some days we may read them and move on, other days we just pause and really ponder... {that's what I did... almost 4 years ago!} 

This beautiful ayah is the main inspiration behind the work we do. You see, before Zed&Q it was just me, myself and I... a young woman, not knowing which direction to turn to. Coming from a large family {I'm Lebanese!}, it's pretty hard not to take everyone's criticism. So there I was.

I moved out of home for 2 years due to some challenging moments. Being away from loved ones was one of the hardest things I endured. At that time I was working as a Nurse and seeing my patients every day was really delightful. However, once my shift was over, reality set in- I was on my own, still feeling isolated. I realised things had really changed. Even my interaction with loved ones became very minimal. I remember feeling so depressed and was literally hiding behind a smile.

My parents always reminded my siblings and I to always maintain relationships with family, relatives and friends. Remembering this, I knew I had to step out of my comfort zone and reconcile hearts. Throughout these 2 lonely years I finally found the courage to do so! {Yes, it took me 2 long years!}
During Eid al Fitr, I posted personalised magnets & postcards to family and close friends. {Yay! I finally did it} I saw an immediate response and realised how this had benefited them.  My parents resumed speaking to me, my relatives invited me over for dinner and everything was slowly going back to the way it was.Being touched by what had happened, I decided to design magnets & cards which could also inspire and benefit others. 

And that's what I continued doing!

Ever since, people have been thanking me for giving them the motivation to step up and do what’s right. I'm forever grateful with everything I face now, because I know there is greater wisdom behind it!                                                                         
We need to understand that whatever Allah has written for us will always be in our favour, regardless. He only wants good for His servants. When one door closes, others begin to open, that's when Q and I got hitched.                                  
So, stay positive and join us on our journey where we will continue to educate, motivate and inspire you through faith!
