Abdur-Rahman, 29. GER | UK | NG
I am young Muslim, interested in all things beautiful and profound, as well as in its preservation. I am a cultural Worker and engineer.
“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 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.
Or Creative? 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!

He says that every Muslim has to deal with […]
Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest
