The Place for Contemporary and Fun Ideazz and Productzz for the Muslim Family


Bismillah! Let the Blog Review Begin…

Someone requested a series of Muslim Blogs – when looking around, I found some great blogs out there, which fit in perfectly with the Buzz Ideazz ethos of bringing Islam to life for our families. So here we go, Inshallah!

Blog 1: Happy Muslim Mama –

Based in the UK, Umm Saliha describes herself as the following: ‘Hijab-loving, working mum of four dirty-faced angels (Little Lady – 9, Little Man – 7, Gorgeous – 5 and baby – 1 month). Big sister to long-suffering sister, fashionista sister, kooky little sister and the invisible man. Lady of the house in a home full of children, extended relatives, in-laws, guests and friends. Wannabe novelist.’

Her posts are similarly amusing and cover a wide range of pertinent topics such as ‘Cooking and Dhikr’, ‘Praying with Children’ and an ‘Organised Muslim Home’. There are loads of refreshing ideas – her latest posts for example, describes the party she held for her daughter for finishing the Holy Quran for the first time.

Check it out! And happy reading 🙂

Blog Reviews

Someone has made a request to have a blog review on Buzz, to be able to identify the ones most handy to ‘like’ and follow…is this something you would like too?

Am thinking of doing this in two parts – one for Islamic blogs, and one for parenting blogs (going back to the importance of creating solid connections with our children to be able to pass on our love for Islam)…

I’m sure there are many amazing blogs out there that you all use and love – please inbox me with the links and will share it with all Inshallah, for everyone to benefit from 🙂
