No! Embracing the Dark.

One of the Existential Truths is:

There is no god but God.

Notice the Arabic starts with an emphatic NO!

No these days is what I have been focussing on, exploring and it leads you to embrace the Dark.

Not knowing

or Knowing

La in Arabic, the sound, the tone resonates, echoes through time, across time and pierces the heart.

It is said one can reflect on a verse for an entire lifetime and still not penetrate the meaning of it.

Exploring beyond the mind on one word, No that is well…………

If anything in this blog has really resonated with you and you would like to discuss the subject further with Taniya privately then use this link.



Having qualified as a Social Worker in July 1991 from Coventry University, it has been over two decades that I have been on the front line working with children and young people who are traumatized and on the margins of society. Although I studied Psycho-dynamic counselling for two years at Goldsmiths College (1991-1993), I decided to integrate Psycho-dynamic theories and skills into my Social work practice and flirt with and immerse myself in studying Islam as well as interfaith dialogue and friendships. For the last 20 years, I have been working in a multi-disciplinary Youth Offending Team in South London, comprised of Professional colleagues from different faiths and cultural backgrounds trying to support young people in the criminal justice system. I am married and mother to three sons, and juggle Social Work and interfaith dialogue with my writing, studying and the needs of home and family.
