A note on Death and Paradise

Hello and Salaams!

This page is now being revised and edited for inclusion in my upcoming book, published by Beacon Books!

Do look out for a link to pre-order, coming soon.

Peace and Love,

Sidra Ansari

PS To help me on my journey to enoughism I will write down 3 things I am grateful for at the end of each post. These are:

  1. To be able to grieve collectively with family when we are struck by these life-changing events; to not be allowed to do this because a certain culture doesn’t see it as appropriate would be detrimental to our health, especially our psychological state of mind.
  2. I am grateful for my faith, which gives me concrete answers to my questions on life and death whenever I require it.
  3. Ramadan is coming up! I am grateful for this hugely blessed month and all the secrets it contains.  May we be of those who benefit from its unique benefits and beauty every year! Don’t forget to start preparing now (and I don’t mean to stock up your freezer with goodies!).

Since you’re here I have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the the7ofus.blog than ever but advertising revenues are non-existent. And unlike many lifestyle magazines, I haven’t put up a paywall – I want to keep my writing as open as I can. So you can see why I need to ask for your help. These posts take a lot of time and hard work to produce. It would be amazing if you could help fund me by donating a coffee a two to keep me going! Please press here to give.
