السلام عليكم / As Salaamu Alaykum / ( Islamic greeting meaning peace be upon you) / hi
Welcome to my blog – and to my neverending, often rambly thoughts and reflections.
Theempoweredprole.com is a platform for empowering and reflecting – it began in a sociology lesson (on Marx) teaching me that the wealthiest in our society have and uphold power despite that they make up less of the population.
While we – the majority, the everyday person, the working class, the proles – live in a world that makes us feel less, as people, as women, as working class, as religious and ethnic minorities. Theempoweredprole is my vision for a narrative that is empowered by unity – the unity and strength of numbers and in our common humanity in this current political climate.
I began by documenting my thoughts on the rise of Anti-Muslim hate and hate crime and now, I write about my experiences as a Muslim woman, a Londoner, a writer and a Literature student at the University of Cambridge. My faith, travel, and the ways I am constantly trying to be mindful, and remembering the purpose of and in all, that I do.
I hope you enjoy reading, as much as I do writing.
