Choosing To Love Alone


The trials of life can leave us feeling helpless, abandoned, and alone. You might be coping with divorce or the loss of a loved one, or you might be struggling to make sense of emotional or spiritual pain that is wearing down your soul. In this first course of my “Choosing To Love Alone” series, I share “survival tools for the soul.” Here, we learn to heal our spiritual wounds, nourish our hurting hearts, and to cherish the solitude of our souls by connecting to our Most Merciful Creator, and making sense of our life’s purpose. Join me for this groundbreaking course in spiritual healing, “Alone, But In the Company of Your Lord.”


Your sister in faith and struggle,

Umm Zakiyyah

Testimonial from TV Host

“Thank you to Umm Zakiyyah for giving us so many wonderful, inspirational reminders. Please keep doing what you’re doing, because you are saying some of the hard things that we want to talk about but we just don’t know how to verbalize. So when you post things that trigger our emotions and remind us of the good things we should be doing for ourselves and others, it’s a real eye-opener…Please continue to be our voice.”

—Aliza Kim, TV show host and former model and actress
