Zahra Summayah – Founder of ‘Manifesting Muslimah’ – New Muslimah Coaching



Bismillah Ir Rahman ir Raheem


Zahra Summayah is the Founder of Manifesting Muslimah, a New Muslimah Coaching Service. Her aim is to empower and inspire New Muslimahs who are seeking ways to strengthen their Iman and Islam, in times of adversity and uncertainty. So that they can embolden their hearts by practicing their Deen with confidence, get closer to Allah (swt) and thrive in all areas of their lives.

Zahra is a convert to Islam with degrees in Psychology and has had a private practice in Grief Counseling. A Spiritual seeker from Tibetan Buddhism into Islamic Spirituality; who has combined her training and faith to overcome obstacles in her life.

Zahra wants to take all she has learned to help other New Muslimahs navigate the challenges of standing by their Faith choice, particularly in times of trials. It is through her spiritual practice and honoring the Universal Right to be treated with kindness and dignity; that Zahra found the courage and strength to set boundaries so that she could manifest her God-given purpose and thrive.

Being a convert of 6 years, Zahra has developed a deep love of our Deen and insights into the struggles of being a convert. She wants to combine her personal journey with her professional qualifications in Counseling & Psychology, to inspire and empower Muslim women around the world to map themselves a new journey of peace, abundance, and prosperity.

As a New Muslimah coach Zahra aims to inspire, empower and celebrate our Deen with Muslimahs so that they can thrive in all areas of their lives; having Allah (swt) as the focus.

We Muslimahs have a duty to God to express our gratitude for creating us in the image of His perfection. And that starts with not letting anyone oppress us, particularly ourselves and our negative self-talk and unhealthy behaviours.

Coaching is less about dwelling in the past hurt and more about manifesting your marvelous self through lessons learned, self-enhancing choices and positive life fulfilling action; all with the pleasure of Allah (swt) as the focus.

My coaching service is best suited to Muslimahs (converts and born- again) who are ready to give themselves the permission to move forward. My coaching is putting Allah (swt) and thriving Muslimahs as the focus.

I do not want us to dwell on the negative, rather put all our energy into dream building, planning and activating the best lives we can for the sake of Allah(swt) 👑💕

All women are welcome to join with Manifesting Muslimah in redefining themselves and their lives

“Manifesting Muslimah”


   It is time to step up and turn my ideas into a business!Progress of green business


Emboldened Hearts came into existence May 1, 2013 – a space for hijabi activism and awareness and notes on the path of a Western Revert Hijabi.

Since starting this blog I got married to a Pakistani, moved to Pakistan, had 2 miscarriages, moved back to Australia, got divorced and over this past year have been reflecting, healing and learning from this roller coaster ride.

The first lesson learnt is that for all the ups and downs – my Faith is the only constant.


And it is through my Faith that I am taking this first step to manifesting my dream of taking all my lessons learnt and packaging them into Self- Healing Modules; designed to help Muslim and Non-Muslim women grow from loss and liberate themselves from suffering.

Through a paid subscription online learning portal I aim to build my life coaching business. 

Over the past 20 years, I have gained 3 degrees in Psychology, Certificates in Counseling and opened a private practice in Grief Counseling from a Buddhist perspective.  This was done against the backdrop of navigating the hurdles of an abusive marriage, raising a daughter and overcoming the life-changing impact of sustaining a brain injury from being run over at high speed.
During this time, my Faith practice was Tibetan Buddhism – which provided me with tools for Mediation and Self Reflection; essential for piercing the core of one’s existence and changing it for the better.

Six years ago, I stepped from Buddhism into Islam through the door of Sufism, continuing a path of dissolving ‘self’ and seeking to overcome fear, confusion and hurt; in the aim to manifest the life of abundance that God wants for me.

Having a decade later stepped into another abusive marriage this time to a Muslim; this last year has been a journey inwards to understand what lessons I did not learn from the first marriage (to an atheist).

One thing is for sure, armed with the knowledge that God commanded husbands to be Caretakers of their wife and it was my right as a Muslim wife to be treated with mercy and kindness; I was able to get out of this marriage a lot quicker – knowing that God did not want harm for me.

We are all imperfectly, perfect on a path that is often uncertain and not so clearly signposted. We will always be in a ‘Process of Becoming’.

There are no mistakes, just lessons to learn and opportunities to grow!

I envisage sharing my self-healing journey lessons on issues such as:
. being a Western Revert Hijabi

. Domestic Abuse – warning signs to prevent getting into such a marriage. Support for women in abusive marriages and how to get out.

. The journey through Fertility intervention and miscarriage

. Adjusting to life after Traumatic Brain Injury


Based on advice given by Ameenah Muhammad Diggins (Entrepreneur, Author and Investor) in a conversation with Suraya Sara at The Mindful Soul Academy about ‘Finding Your Gift’ “if you have an idea immediately act on it – announce it to the world and watch it manifest“.

So here I am sharing my World Premiere Announcement to all my Emboldened Heart Lovers my business plans for the future – WATCH THIS SPACE!!

Please make lots of prayers and send all your good vibes to me and this business plan – May  I be able to earn a worthy living providing help and motivation to women all over the world,  Ameen

Men, women and attire


Al-Fadl ibn Al-‘Abbas was riding behind the Prophet (ﷺ) as his companion rider on the Day of Nahr (slaughtering of sacrifice, 10th Dhul-Hijjah) Al-Fadl was a handsome man, the Prophet (ﷺ) stopped to give people verdicts. In the meantime, a beautiful woman From the tribe of Khath’am came, asking the verdict of Allāh’s Messenger (ﷺ). Al-Fadl started looking at her as her beauty attracted him. The Prophet (ﷺ) looked behind while Al-Fadl was looking at her; so the Prophet (ﷺ) held out his hand backwards and caught the chin of Al-Fadl and turned his face. She then asked her question, and he (ﷺ) answered.
What the Prophet (ﷺ) did not do:
◦ Pass comment or tell the woman to change her attire◦ Tell the woman to cover her face◦ Tell her that her appearance was too enticing
He (ﷺ) merely averted Al-Fadl’s stare.
So, how/why do some men (and women) effortlessly critique the apparel of others? Why is the emphasis often on the woman to conform to what the man views as acceptable? She observes the ḥijāb out of adherence to the most High, not you, or your thoughts.
It is so very dangerous to link clothing and outward appearance with a person’s religiosity. Every single person has their own battle, do not belittle them.
And Allāh alone knows best.
