Who Controls You? (Review)

Who Controls You? (Review)

Afshan Khan has been serving the community for 27 years in Islamic counselling and Mediation service for Muslim women. It was an honour for Nour to get hold of her as she shared her expertise in this field. The workshop proved effective through its interactive nature. Many sisters were able to engage with sister Afshan and disclose their personal feelings hoping to take something positive back home. So the question is who controls you? The question was thrown at the sisters who responded with answers such as emotions, lack of confidence, other people, the negatives, and the positives. Not one...

Saving Face (Review)

Saving Face (Review)
