Essence Jones

20 Jun

Soon to be Sahar Yunus-Nuriddin (God Willing), Essence was born and raised in Decatur, Georgia. Her family are not Muslim for the most part so her exposure to Islam was quite limited. As a teenager, she started to spend more and more time with the Muslims of the family until one day, she decided that Allah willed for her to spend her life worshipping Him. She attends Georgia Southern University, studying Anthropology and Spanish. She is also the president of the MSA there ( http://www. Her motto for life is: “If you can’t laugh it off, sleep it off, and if you wake up with it still, it’s time to pray.” You can follow her on twitter @Plaine_Drifter and read her blog Hijabi Inspiration, Niiqabi Aspirations (
