12:27 pm - Welcome to all new members!
Salaam 'alaikum sisters! I know that I have not made my presence known in a while now, and seeing as how just about every day I get new membership requests I think now would be a great time for all of us to introduce ourselves. So, all of you new sisters and all you veterans, why don't we post inshallah and get to know each other better!

My name is Shajarah Helminski, I am 20 years old and getting married soon inshallah. I am a student at Clayton College of Natural Health where I am working on a BS in Holistic Nutrition and certification as a Naturopathic Doctor. I also work as a medical assitant in a surgery center about 25 miles away. I am a Sufi and converted to Islam between 3 and 4 years ago subhanallah from being raised as a Roman Catholic. My uncle Sh. Kabir Helminski is one of the foremost authors/translators of Rumi and international speakers on Sufism/Islam. He also works diligently with a group called Fons Vitae (Fountain of Life) at bringing Islam into public schools. There has been much change going on in my life over the past year, alhamdulillah. My mom died last summer (Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un) and now my father is remarrying later this year and moving to Florida (we live in NJ). As the only child, my soon-to-be husband and I have been searching for a place to move into soon inshallah since my father is selling the house. As far as some of my hobbies and interests... I love water and being outdoors/camping, drawing and painting, working on the pottery wheel, reading Rumi and Hafiz, and writing.

Anyway, I'm sure that's enough for now... But inshallah you'll be seeing a lot more of me from now on! :)

Wa salaam
