About Me


I begin with Salaam Alaykum . . . the greetings of peace.

My name is Amaney. Born and raised in New Jersey my whole life (I know, not very fascinating). Always loved reading and going to parks and being in nature. My form of entertainment is sitting at home with a good book, sipping on a cup of hot tea in a quiet room (don’t come between me and my books!). I would choose staying at home with my books versus going out to the mall anytime! (I know weird. To each their own!)

In my former (working) life I was a Civil Engineer . . . now I am an aspiring writer. I know your probably like, what? From engineer to writer? Yup, from engineer to writer! I’ve realized my true passion lies in learning about Allah (swt) and our rich Islamic history and reflecting on what that means to me growing up as Muslim in America today.

Welcome to my ramblings about random occurrences in life, reviews on books I’ve read and books that will be published under the company I recently found, Project Illumination. I hope you learn something, share something, and leave a little legacy of your presence on here.

May Allah (swt) make this blog a means of benefit for all those who pass by. Ameen. 🙂
