About

In the Name of Allah, the extremely Merciful at this very moment, and the extremely Merciful at all times.

With the Name of Allah, the extremely Merciful at this very moment, and the extremely Merciful at all times.

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatu

May the peace, mercy, and blessings of Almighty God be upon you,

My name is Hateem Siddiqui.  I started TheStudentsPath to reflect on lessons I have learned- and God willing continue to learn- in life; primarily to help Muslims learn from everyday life in the U.S.  I started this blog on 2/12/2012 to help myself and young Muslims dig deeper and to reflect on the signs of Allah around us, the struggles we face, and the blessings that we enjoy.  Sometimes it can be overwhelming to be a Muslim and a professional, to learn about your religion and take 20 college units, to stay away from drugs and alcohol, or to live up to your parents expectations.  These writings, with the help of Allah, are discussions on dealing with the unique pressures we face as Muslims in the U.S.

I’m 24 years old and a 3rd year med student.  I was once an MSA president (how it happened I’ll never know).  But I also play sports and was obsessed with videogames.  I went to public school and lost friends to drugs.  And I’m definitely not perfect.

In fact, I’m not a sheikh or an authority on Islam either.  But perhaps someone can relate to my experience and learn from what I have to write.  Or maybe I can learn from what you have to say.  Or maybe we can learn from each other; and that is the beauty of being on the student’s path.

If you’d like to personally contact me, you can email me at thestudentspath@gmail.com  or message me on Facebook.

NOTE:  “Allah” is Arabic for “God”
