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!

  • Repelling Evil

    Today inshAllah I want to talk about countering a bad deed with a good deed. Allah swt. has promised a great reward for those who when encountering bad behavior, do good instead instead of answering with bad. Good conduct, good behaviour has a very high importance in Islam, it counters the influence and outcome of bad…
