Best Personal Development/Productivity Blog AND Best Business Blog – Ayeina

Most Inspirational Blogger

The voting for this was held in our closed community, with the top 5 then being deliberated over by some of the sponsors and the admins of MB. It was very difficult to choose between the top 5 as they were all inspirational in their own ways. In the end, the decision was made based on a number of factors, including how helpful they generally are.

And the chosen winner is: 


Iman from And Then She Said is a wife, mum to two little minions and an organising junkie who loves food (sugar is my best friend). Hop aboard the crazy train and share in the beautiful, chaotic, ever-changing journey that she is on! We did a mini interview with her back in May 2016…..have a read to find out more about her: And The She Said Featured Blogger.


Congratulations to all our winners and a jazakAllah khair to all our award sponsors.

Until next year in sha Allah!

    Jazakumullah khairan katheera to all those who voted. Didn’t expect to win 2 categories lol. I loved how some of the bloggers went out of their way to not only vote for other bloggers but actually promoted and cheered them as well. That’s one of the best things I loved about this! SISTERHOOD! Everyone will forget our awards but the sisterhood will take us far in shaa Allah. So virtual hugs to all the ladies who’re out there helping people out through their platforms in whatever whatever they can! YOU are awesome! Keep doing what you’re doing because every little matters! 😙

    Congratulations to all.
    How does the Muslimah Bloggers work? How do you become a part of it? Is the Muslimah Bloggers a closed group for the UK only?
    Pepper and Pine is clearly a fantastic YouTuber and she wasn’t even nominated, which is very surprising and leaves us to wonder how this ‘contest’ works? It feels like it’s only for a closed group of friends?
    Like, what do you mean that some of the Admin worked together to choose from a closed group?
    Thank you for the clarifications.

      Wsalaam she was nominated and went through to the voting stage

      And no it is not about a closed group of friends as I personally hadn’t even heard of at least one of these blogs that won and a number of blogs that had been nominated. Also the winners if you checked are from a variety of countries…Pakistan, India, Canada, Botswana

      The only one that admin and sponsors had any say in was the Inspirational Blogger one which was picked via the public nominations, the group nominations and opinions of some of the sponsors.

      There were almost 1000 votes from the public picking the winners.

      Everyone is welcome to join the group…all info is in the about page.

      Hope that helps
