Asalamu Alaikum – Peace be upon you

Welcome to my blog! Thank you so much for clicking onto this page and wanting to find out more about the person behind the Grain & Gains blog.

My name is Aishah. I am a qualified Junior Doctor and Personal Trainer. I started this blog in order to have a platform to help Muslim Women, like myself, develop a healthier lifestyle.  I cover topics including (but not limited to!) health, fitness, productivity, self development and occasionally lifestyle. When I can, I also like to create and share my recipes. I am really passionate about helping women become stronger within themselves, both physically and mentally – this has been the foundation for my blog.

You will find my posts are heavily influenced by the teachings of Islam, as this is the biggest factor of my life. This does not mean my posts are solely aimed at Muslims, as I hope anyone who comes across my blog can benefit. In my posts, I often quote Quranic verses and teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).

Disclaimer: Everything written on my blog is a reflection of my own opinion, unless otherwise stated. I am not a religious scholar nor am I significantly learned in religious sciences. Please do not take what is written to be factual and always do further reading of your own.

My current posting schedule is Monday and Thursday.
