Ladies! Hello! If you have been following me, you know that I had started my Fey Rooz Instagram journey November last year so I think it’s about time I introduced myself to you. It’s good for you to know that the being behind this account is not a robot but an actual person! My name is Sarah. I live in Ottawa, Canada. My kryptonite is Sushi Kan. I don’t watch Superman, but I do watch The Flash. In fact, my favourite mug happens to be a STAR LABS mug 🤓. Am I a scientist? Nope; I majored in English Literature and my minor was World Religions – Does that mean I like reading, poetry and spirituality? Heck yes! Okay so what am i doing with these passions? Basically, I read, I write poetry and have had the wonderful opportunity of co-running a writing contest dedicated to the Beloved ﷺ – as for spirituality, well, we’re all on some kind of journey or path. So, why jewelry? Because I love working with my hands AND gemstone jewelry in particular is so connected to spirituality! And like I said, I dig spirituality!
How? Gemstones are another creation of God. And what creation isn’t a sign from God? Gemstones have this awesome ability and energy to remind you of your godly qualities. You can use to to purify your heart (staying calm, being positive, caring for others and yourself….etc). Especially the more you learn about them and their properties, the more the reminders will pour in!
Namaste 🌻 Salam!
Welcome to our blog!
On Instagram, we post more than just handmade jewelry, we upload 1 minute meditation videos every Wednesday and often post quotes and lifestyle tips – something we categorize under #FeyroozPhilosophy with a hashtag.
If you synchronize with FeyRooz philosophy and enjoy those meditation videos, we can take it to a whole other level with that content on this platform. There’s more space to write and more space to breath. Instagram can be tight! (pun intended).
So, let’s begin.
You know where a blog is heading, by knowing where a blog is coming from. And you know where a blog is coming from, by knowing what inspires it.
Very briefly, let’s talk about what inspired the Title:
Long before Fey Rooz the Blog came Fey Rooz the Etsy shop inspired by:
- the Sunnah
And its title? Inspired by all things beautiful:
- my Mother
- the artist Fairouz
- Imam Ali (RA)
The Froth of a Spiritual Life. Sweetly inspired by the Friend of God Habib Umar, this blog’s subtitle takes after his book’s title: The Cream of Remembrance.
I first touched and read it’s ivory pages inscribed with celestial invocations in the dimly lit basement of his student, and now my local shaykh, here in Ottawa. Little pocket size with a leathery caramel cover: so inviting to the touch and when read aloud, harmonious to the inner and outer ear. My heart’s musical notes were being played on the vocal chords of both the aspiring women gathered around me and the aspiring men encased behind the shoji screen in the room.
These posts are nowhere near the cream, or the essence, extracted from Divine Remembrance. These posts are a little taste: the froth, a trace of your diving in.
Remembrance is just another word for Mindfulness or God-Consciousness. I will try to Remember and remind you of the Divine and my divine experience with poetry, songs, reflections… and hopefully we can put things to practise.
