Salaam / Peace,
I have just celebrated my co-wife, Coach Nyla, and her birthday! I had also met and spoken to her family. For some it's difficult to think of a co-wife as a separate individual due to sharing the same husband.
However, as always; they are a person with their own personality and traits and there's much more to them than that! In this video I talk about my experience and the celebration we had for Coach Nyla.

Have you ever been in a relationship where something happened that broke your trust? Was there ever a time when you've broken someone's trust? We know that when it comes to trust, it can take a long time to build and a moment to break. That is why we must be true in being our best selves. Why? Because we attract who we are. If we are trustworthy, we will attract trustworthy people, if not...well, you know.
I'm not saying that we may not play the fool sometimes. By that, I...

I know that this is an interesting topic for most, however as we are "pro morals" we felt we had to touch on the topic of prepping our children for marriage. In Islam, we don't do the "boyfriend/girlfriend" thing, and those who do are not practicing what Islam teaches.
Now marriage is a big commitment and there is no one way to build an outstanding one. However, there are tools and tips that we use and that we've learned to improve on our marriages to make them outstanding and...
The first step to recognizing a crisis is identifying it. Often times we don't recognize we're in crisis. Positive spiritual re-framing can help people by forming a connection with a higher power which helps them feel empowered during tragedy. Some people view spirituality as a way to make themselves a part of something big!
This can happen through meditation, prayer, taking part in spiritual meetings; or even taking a walk outside. These rituals can create a cultivating...
Our newest episode of Candid Cowives Conversations is now available and we decided to speak on relationships with bonus/stepchildren. Coach Fatimah and I recorded videos on our experience as well as best practices to take when you are building relationships with your bonus/stepchildren. After speaking on a topic that doesn't get much attention, we received many requests to speak and train on it more. In our Relationship Mastery Inner Circle I touched on bonding with bonus...
Being grounded spiritually has helped me in so many ways. As I connect with others through networking, business or even throughout different social events, when we speak about what is the reason for their success, whether it be in their marriages, relationships, business or anything else, their spirituality is at the top of the list. Mind you, many people I speak with do not practice the same faith as I do, however, they can agree that when they want peace, when they need...
Being Muslim, speaking on spirituality to some may make them think that I'm trying to convert them or think that Islam is all I know. As Islam is my way of life and the religion I choose to keep me grounded, I don't judge people for what they believe. That is between them and the Creator. I do however, like to know why people believe what they do and how it affects them in their daily lives. That is what led me to Islam and my own spiritual journey. I created a video about that...

Especially in polygyny, child to step-parent relationships can tend to feel awkward or tense BUT they don’t have to. In this video I talk about my experience as a step parent/bonus mom...
Are you married to a person who has/have a child or children from a previous marriage? Are you in polygyny and you are trying to navigate your relationship with the child/children of your spouse?
This could be a tricky part of relationship building and as crazy as it may sound, it depends on the maturity of the adults. Children take cues from their parents, whether it be good or bad and it takes proper communication, emotional maturity and the willingness to grow to make...
