Moods of BiPolar

Mood burning very bright
I can’t think about what is right
Nor can I think about what is not
Judgment surely is shot.

Mood burning very dim
I can not manage to do much for him
sleep seems like the best escape
so I will crawl into my slumber cape.

Mood burning in the middle
I feel as though I am playing second fiddle
I am ready to scream at the top of my lungs
I have no patience for anyone.

Irritability is my middle name
I feel ready to burn up in flames
If someone pushes me over the edge
Be forewarned:

I will hit you with my sledge……
One thing at a time

When You Find Yourself Broken…

The Muslimah Mommy


When you find yourself broken into a million pieces, take it as an opportunity to build yourself up in a way that you will never break again…

So, there you are. Fractured. With pieces of you in a shattered mess. Go on, and cry. Cry it out until you cannot cry anymore. Now stop. Gather yourself. Put yourself together and build yourself up so high that you won’t break again. It’s okay to crack, but promise yourself you won’t break again. Assemble yourself in such a way that when others look at you they will be in awe – they will be INSPIRED- Sumaira Zaheer © The Muslimah Mommy (2014)

Bipolar poem

Star burning bright blinding me from reality and genuine insight.

No sleeping – too much
to do; feel, learn, see & express.

Why don’t you have as much energy as me? Everyone
talks so slow I seem to make them stress.

Don’t they know that I’m brighter, brighter,
brighter still? Senses heightened – what a thrill! SUPERNOVA –

Then darkness like a
black hole…time stands still BUT my mind races against my will.

Isolation starts to take
its toll. What is happening?

Have I lost my desire, my passion to live and love? I used to
be on fire!?

NOW leave me alone. I won’t even answer the phone. Lay in bed for days.
When will this end? Who cares about eating or anything else – sleep is my only REAL
friend. I’d like to be a regular girl but so unpredictable is my mood.

Wait out of the corner of my eye through the curtains I can barely make out a thin line. Is it a lie OR is
the sun actually starting to shine? Once again I’m so glad its not the end – the fire is

Salah Reminders

The Muslimah Mommy

The other day, I put some salah reminders into my iPad; in shaa Allah I’m hoping these reminders will prompt me to pray ON TIME! As a mother of three young children, I find myself getting ready for salah, and then just as I’m about to step onto the prayer mat, one of my kids starts crying. I usually have to calm my child down, and that leads to further distractions; because of this, I have programmed these salah reminders into my iPad to help remind me of prayer. Please note, I’am using these reminders in addition to the app that plays the Adhan, so these reminders will pop up on my iPad right before and just after the Adhan goes off. Down below are the reminders that I have made into images.

I have also put these images together into a collage, and use it as a background image…
