Akram's Journey


At ten years old, Akram Siddeeq (Umm Zakiyyah's brother), was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, the same illness that their younger brother, Qaadir, struggled with until he passed away at 27 years old due to cancer of the gall bladder in 2008.

Today, at 41 years old, Akram's battle continues as he faces a possible liver transplant. Yet he maintains a positive mindset and remains dedicated to a healthy lifestyle and a faith-centered path of gratefulness. Meanwhile, despite his trials as a divorced, single father, he looks forward to remarrying and finding love again.

In this course, Umm Zakiyyah shares a relaxed chat she had with Akram via Zoom, where he reflects on his personal challenges and triumphs — and ten (10) lessons he learned along the way.

Dr. Robert D. Crane, advisor to former US President Nixon, said of Umm Zakiyyah, “…no amount of training can bring a person without superb, natural talent to captivate the reader as she does and exert a permanent intellectual and emotional impact.”

Professor K. Bryant of Howard University said of If I Should Speak, “The novel belongs to…a genre worthy of scholarly study.”

Umm Zakiyyah has a BA degree in Elementary Education, an MA in English Language Learning, and Cambridge’s CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults).
