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!

  • Die Katana in der Luft. So schnell wie der Blitz. Die Klinge blitzt im Sonnenschein, leises summen. Schwingungen drängen in dein Ohr. Als du dich umdrehst saust das Schwert in einem Bogen auf dich zu. Deine Augen aufgerissen, Körper erstarrt. Blut kaltes Eis. Fest gefroren.  Dein Herz pocht, noch. Das einzige, dass sich traut sich…

  • Swearing for Charity

    Heart beating faster, taking in a shallow shaking breath as you’re running from one side of the pitch to the other. Voices calling to each other ‘Man on’. Your mind just occupied with that next shot. The ball is coming nearer, a pass across and it’s yours. You prepare to accept it, striding towards it.…
