and welcome

Abdur-Rahman, 29. GER | UK | NG

I am young Muslim, interested in the preservation of all things beautiful and profound. A cultural Worker and engineer, experimenting, learning + unlearning my way through life.

“Tread this world lightly, inspire compassion and justice to every creature within it and appreciate its beauty as a reflection of God. Verily, in the remembrance of God do hearts find rest”


What does it mean to be human? What is a good life and how does one live it? Do you only live once? Questions I ask myself and share some of my thoughts over on my blog.

Cultural Work

Or creative work? Is the word creative laden with capitalist ideals, of individualism, of seeking money and fame? Maybe, me I am in love with beauty.

I am a freelance graphic designer, a photo and videograph, and a writer, who might sometimes share a poem or two.


I am a Chemical Engineer who grew a conscious as my best friend once said. I am a Muslim vegan, travelling this world looking for balance. Currently I study a Masters in Environmental Engineering and work at a research institute.


Now that I have talked about the controversial stuff, let’s talk about Politics. Any takers? The personal is political, I believe that. Beyond that I am still finding my way, learning and unlearning, striving for justice. While knowing that God is the Just. Accompany me along that journey!

  • Be more courageous

    Peace be with you! Malcolm X once famously said, “If you don’t stand up for something, you’ll fall for anything.” Finding the courage however to do that is hard. It is hard to stand up for that something you believe in, to put yourself behind an idea. An idea that may cost you your livelihood, your job,…
