Muslim Girlfriend's Guide To Divorce - The Basics


About Me: Saira Hayat Khan

Does anyone read anymore? Is this thing on? Hi! Welcome to “Muslim Girlfriends Guide” – an informal series that I’ve always wanted to do after all the interest my social media gets in how to manage the innards of our lives as mothers, career driven women, wives and all the other various roles we play. 

I want this to benefit everyone involved. For the reader, I hope you gain some insight and perspective on how I navigate big events like divorce, death, and the daily struggle of life, in itself. For me – I hope you can send me prayers and share your thoughts on how you cope, further inspiring me to keep going. I want to create a safe space for women who are like minded and can gain inspiration from one another.

No topic is off topic here. I always get asked how I bounced back from divorce. How I recovered from losing both parents. How I manage financially, spiritually and emotionally. The truth is – I’m still figuring it out myself. I don’t have it all sorted. But if I can find inspo from you, to help me from burning out…that is enough for me.

At the age of 35, it is safe to say that I have seen quite a lot in my life. I’m not an expert (obvi) but I do pride myself on being a self taught, thoroughly experienced advisor (just based on the conversations we’ve had on my various social media platforms). I won’t always give you good advice, but I will always keep it real. What more could you want out of a friend?

So hello! If you’re new here, I’m Saira. I’m a mom to a 5 year old daughter. I’m an introverted selective extrovert who finds momentum from women like you. Someone who struggles with the pangs of life, can’t always find her footing in this world but does her best to get by and make the most out of the circumstances handed to her.

I find you relatable because you are like me. You’re probably looking for growth, peace of mind and ease. You’ll find it here. So stay a while.
