I was born in Dubai & raised in most of the emirates here starting from Abu Dhabi to Ras Al-Khaima. I had the chance to study in the UAE, Qatar, Palestine and Jordan as my family moved between these countries. When I finished my B.A in Islamic Studies & Comparative Religions and my M.A in Educational Leadership I put in mind that I would like to continue to teach in international schools where I can learn more about different cultures and become amazed by how God made us different but similar at the same time! Different in our point of views and appearance but similar in respecting each other and admiring righteousness.
As I have taught students from FS1 up to year 12 in different schools for 9 years in Dubai, I am astonished at how we, human beings, develop over the years in our skills, thoughts and choices; how we have a pure innocent world and how in some situations it is less innocent. This led me to realise that our main struggle in life is to keep this purity in our hearts and therefore in our deeds, which is a life-long challenge.
As an Islamic teacher this what I try to pass on to my pupils; no matter what you face in life, no matter how you are treated, just keep choosing the good way and if you slip to a sin – which is normal as humans – immediately admit your mistake, fix it, apologise and never give up in this circle of sinning and repenting. I hope I can help my children have this as a philosophy in their life; the biggest challenge is to make sure they see their teacher embodies it.
