There are probably more nutrients , sadly Arabic is not my first language, so based on the resources available in English and I have to say, because it’s true, Allah opening my eyes more to what is in the Quran. The Quran is a book that is always revealing itself, alhmdulilah.


SACRED SUNNAH SUPERFOODS..is the name of my new quranic foods nutrition colouring book. I love illustration. While I was doing my degree at Central St Martins Arts School, one of my Painting  tutors, Bill Henderson told me, ” your strength is your black line!” what a great double entendre !
