we are all ONE MUSLIMAH.

Assalam alaykom! I'm Fatima Alshameya, a certified Life + Business Coach.

Back in my college days, I attended a huge Muslim conference. I bought a tshirt that had one of the most profound messages I'd ever read.

One God. One Ummah. One Love.

Today, 16 years later, those words still resonate deep for me. 

It was under that message that I built One Muslimah. Because each one of us is One Muslimahوthe domino effect this world needs to make it better. You. Me. All of us. Believing and living that message of those 6 words. As we all rise to be the powerful women that Allah created us to be, we will create a ripples of benefit to ourselves, our loved ones, our communities and the world.

I've wanted to be a life coach before I ever knew what life coaching was. I worked at a counseling agency when I graduated college. Even though I loved it, I felt like something was missing for me + the clients. I didn't realize what it was until 6 years later when I l discovered what life coaching was.

I am trained by two life coaching schools accredited by the ICF (International Coach Federation). I went to two schools because I wanted to offer my clients 2 different coaching styles.

I specialize in coaching Muslim women who are struggling to balance all of their responsibilities, who feel stressed and exhausted, and who want to find a more peaceful way of living, working, and parenting--all while serving Allah. I offer both life + business coaching. So with my business coaching, I work with Muslim women entrepreneurs, in life coaching principles but with a special focus on their businesses. I work best with those women who are wildly passionate about their businesses, looking to take their businesses to the next level and want to feel good running their businesses. Life and business go hand in hand. How you live your life, impacts your business. How you run your business impacts your life. 

Your thoughts, values, and beliefs shape the life you have. Let's use them to live a life you LOVE while serving Allah. Being resentful, frustrated and stressed is far from the amazing Muslimah you want to be. My sessions are judgement free zones. None of us are perfect. I help you see what's amazing about you then use that to get what you want.  

Wanna get a bit more personal?

I love tea a bit too much. Sometimes I bribe myself to get out of bed so I can spend more time sipping tea before I start my day. I'm even drinking tea now writing this!

I'm married to a ridiculously funny husband. We have two beautiful daughters.         

I started and run an international Islamic nonprofit organization. It was created 8 years ago, is 100% volunteer and gives me the blessing of collaborating with some amazing sisters

At my core, I'm a teacher and an international speaker. I've been teaching for 13 years. Speaking at events for the past 8 years. Some for small gatherings. Others where the audience was so huge, everyone looked like little ants while I was in the spotlight. Good times.

I hope that visiting my website feels like having tea with a dear friend—the kind of friend who always greets you with a hug, who always makes you feel comforted, and who gives you that extra boost of encouragement to get through the rest of your day. I'm here to encourage you to define and achieve success & happiness on your terms …while using this journey to become closer to Allah.
