Having lived a life full of sins has brought me here. To share what changes me to be better a Muslimah. To show to other Muslims that life is just a test yet amidst those trials that Allah SWT has brought upon each soul, there are still unlimited blessings that Allah SWT has showered upon us. My name is Nurashikin Salim and I wish to inspire people with my pasts, present and future. And I thank Allah SWT for giving me the greatest gift of all – my husband – because I know, the moment I met my husband, Allah SWT still loves me.

I would like to take this opportunity to share my mum’s, friend’s and my humble effort in spreading the importance of dressing well to impress our Creator – Allah SWT. Mai Black Jubah caters to Muslimat living in Singapore who are looking for affordable jubah, long instant tudung and niqab. The tailor is none other than my lovely mum who does not really care about labour cost. Our items are priced based on the cost of cloth. If you, or you know of Muslimat wanting to dress only to impress Allah SWT but could not find the place to get these items, do click on our Mai Black Jubah FB page. πŸ™‚

This is my story. What’s yours?

    found a great blog. My name is Nur Aina and I’m Malaysian. I’m studying in counselling (Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia). I do really love to learn about psychology and to relate with what Islam teaches us. Your writing is a good platform for me to learn from others perspectives.

    Salam ukhuwah from Malaysia =)

    I stumbled across your blog through a post shared by a friend on facebook. Your posts are really inspiring and also helps to cultivate minds.
    I’m a 17 year old boy and I’m not happy to say that I don’t believe in Islam anymore. I grew up attending madrasah setiap minggu and many things have happened in my life. However, this is set to change. Recently, I’ve been trying to get myself to believe in Islam again. I’m really glad I’ve found your blog as your posts are truly inspiring and will help me in my quest to believe back in Islam!

    • nurashikinsalim says:

      Assalamualaikum F! MasyaAllah. Glad to hear that you’re starting to believe in Islam again. Slowly but surely, InsyaAllah! Do PM me on FB (Nurashikin Salim) or whatsapp me at +6582981248 if you need Ustaz to assist you in this journey. πŸ˜€

    Assalamualaikum sister, I came to your blog after reading a shared post on fb, and I’m really glad I came here. There are many things that I may have missed out regarding being a practising Muslimah, and your posts have somewhat enlighten me. MasyaAllah May Allah bless you and your family, and May He ease all your affairs. I really do hope we could keep in touch, so I could ask questions personally πŸ™‚ I’m from Singapore too!

    Salam dear sister! πŸ™‚ i chanced upon your beautiful writing through a shared post on Facebook and I’ve been reading a post each day at random from that day on. Today, I’m on one of your page and I have some questions to ask. I hope to be able to learn more from you in being a better practising Muslimah.

    Assalamualaikum Sis Shikin. I am Farisha, from Malaysia. I came across your blog and honestly, I wanted to ask you some questions since last month but didn’t have the courage to. So here goes.. I was proposed by an ustaz one month ago, in which I agreed and we got engaged. It was that kind of union that both of our parents encouraged but ultimately, the decision is still in my hands. I am currently transitioning slowly to become better muslimah than I used to back then and to me, it is quite a big change. Currently, I am researching on wearing niqab, its purposes and how to wear it because I’m not familiar with it. I also came across an issue where wearing niqab in government institutions in Malaysia (for staffs and students) is prohibited. I am currently pursuing a degree in Chemistry and I’m in my final year. I studied in UTM JB where some of the students do wear niqab and so far there’s no issue. What I’m worried about is how will my future prospect in career be? I am afraid if wearing it will hinder me from getting a job in either private or government institution. I wanted to work for a corporate company, preferably in Chemistry industry if possible. What should I do?

    • nurashikinsalim says:

      Waalaikumsalamwarahmatullah Sis Farisha. Wow. MasyaAllah. We’re almost alike! Hehe. Thanks for sharing your life story with me (and all those that will be reading this. Hehe.) Btw Sis, don’t worry about the niqab. Really. Do not feel guilty if you’ve to take off your niqab while working. Unless you’ve come to a conclusion that niqab is wajib, then don’t worry k. Discuss with your husband when you’re married. Tell him about your plans. If you feel by working in Chemistry industry will make you contribute to the Ummah more, then look at the bigger purpose in life, k? πŸ™‚ Whatever your decision, make sure to serve Allah SWT is your utmost priority. Other than that, enjoy life to the fullest! πŸ˜€

    Assalamualaikum. Ive been reading your blog. Ma shaa Allah, it is heartwarming. I currently face the issue of me and my fiance are what people label as “wahabi” or “muhammadiyah”. The problem is, my family is against this and we always had clashes abt the “difference” in aqeedah. I usually just keep quiet but they always rub it on us that we are wrong. The sad reality of humans labelling Islams. We shud be united. Btw i cant find the fb page Mai Black Jubah. Im a niqabi and id love to see whats in store 😦

    I came across your blog when I was looking up the term ‘Salafi’. I have a personal question to ask and it would mean a lot if I could get your email or something. Looking forward to your reply πŸ™‚

    Have a blessed day ahead.
