  1. As Salamu alaykom Alhumdulil’Allah a wonderful initiative may Allah subhana wa ta’ala give you success with all your initiatives. I am just wondering how a woman in Islam can be a chaplain? As well, have you been formally trained as an Islamic scholar?

    1. wa alaikum sallam, wa rahmtulaahi wa barakatu, there is a difference between chaplain and imam, i studied on a foundation imamship course and was offered a free scholarship to do my masters degree in islamic studies, i have declined for now as i am studying clinical nutrition.it is a bit of a burden being a chaplains attention seeking sister tarnish the image by wanting to lead men in prayers, i hope this explanation helps.

      1. BISM ALLAH , MASHAA ALLAH , BARAKA ALLAH ;WA TABARAKA ALLAH .
        MAY ALLAH (SWT) THE ALMIGHTY ACCEPT YOURS GOOD DEEDS , AND SHOWER YOURS PROJECT WITH HIS MERCY ;
