Between Dusk and Dawn…

Some *scribble* *scribble* by Ameera

Who writes here?

Good question! Who writes here?

One of the first things I like to do when I come across a new blog is to find out a few, very basic things about the blogger. What’s their name? What do they do? Any interesting hobbies or skills they focus on? It really helps understand the writing if you know a little bit about the author rather than just having his or her initials, like “L R” or a pseudonym like “crazyblogger”!


My name is Ameera, a twenty-something Muslim girl based in Karachi, Pakistan. I’ve been blogging for a very long while now (started in 2005) and currently, this blog is going through a subtle but long-due renovation (read: reinvention) in style.

I also blog for MuslimMatters as part of a large team. It is an enriching experience in many ways and I highly recommend you check out the great stuff by bloggers and scholars there – and have a look at mine too *plugging*. πŸ™‚

In the real world, I’m just about to be upgraded from “medical student” to “doctor” Insha’Allah (<Β what does this mean?) but medicine is just one of my interests. Instead of going into a boring, old-school description of things I’m into, I’ll make it quick and simple with these keywords…

Islam | religion | Β current affairs | food | cooking | medicine | photography | writing | relationships | parenting | kids | travel | jewelery | outdoors | music-free nasheeds | Hijab

    Dear Ameera, I came across your Failed Plans writing, and it really blessed me,,, esp. “do we pause to wonder if maybe, just maybe, that failure was actually a great blessing in disguise?” I also enjoyed your writing about smiling while hurting inside..You are sure a beautiful soul, with a deep heart. God bless,,,,Ereena

    I just visited today to check out if you posted anything new. And noticed you too have been experimenting with TypeKit! I tried doing the same today and realized that you need to do some extra work in order for it to work : . As the author notes, for a lot of the fonts the font size is just too small. There isn’t an elegant solution to this besides customizing one’s own CSS (requires a paid upgrade) .

    I gave up on TypeKit, because the fonts I liked appeared too small. Sticking to the default font for now, which isn’t so bad πŸ™‚ .

    I’m making a short video message about One World/One People and would like to use the illustration you included in a piece you wrote a few years ago: “One God, One World, One Dream,” Aug. 8, 2008. It’s the image of the many hands holding up the globe. Do you know if it is a copyrighted image or in the public domain? If you can, please respond to my personal email.

    Many thanks, and I’m glad I stumbled on your blog–heartening to find an affirming voice!
