About – The Unknown Sister


Papatia Feauxzar is my pen name as I would like to stay modest and keep myself anonymous. I have a science background (Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics and Accounting) but I love writing. It has always been a secret passion of mine. I am a woman and a work-in-progress individual. To knowledge insha Allah! :).

You can read more about me here and listen to me here during an interview with the lovely Layla Abdullah-Poulos (Founder of NbA Muslims).

Jazak’Allah Khair for reading,

Quotes by Moi

“Most stories that are easy to write are those already inside us; our daily lives, our challenges, etc.” Papatia Feauxzar

“Supernatural events (good and evil) occur to those who believe; religious or not.” Papatia Feauxzar

“Nobody invents or creates anything. He chooses who to give the idea to. We get inspired instead.” Papatia Feauxzar

“We are slaves and servants to Him. Those who were bonded knew who their true Master was.” Papatia Feauxzar

“The best job for me is writing. I get to be anyone I want to be via my characters. How cool is that?!” Papatia Feauxzar

“If Allah didn’t test us and gave us jannah al-firdaus easily, those denied jannah would cry ‘favoritism’. So let’s own up to our trials with a head high insha’Allah.” Papatia Feauxzar

“Saying, ‘We need to improve the race’ is blasphemy. Allah made the creation in perfection.”Papatia Feauxzar

“The way I see it, some of us are friends to the Creator. Some of us are beloved of Him that his friends don’t particularly fancy while He can be our beloved but we (the friends don’t fancy one another). And life goes on. You do you and I do me.” Papatia Feauxzar

“Remember this : People can ignore you all they want and don’t pay attention to it because you only need to impress HIM. Besides, at one point you will become too big for them to ignore you any longer. Plus you get less nazar-evil eye.” Papatia Feauxzar

“One becomes successful when the success of others doesn’t bother you.” Papatia Feauxzar

“Every writer is a name thief.” Papatia Feauxzar

“I’m a tiny girl with big dreams I intend to bring to life insha’Allah. DREAM BIG TOO!” Papatia Feauxzar

“When people make dua for you, you cannot stay behind walaye!” Papatia Feauxzar

“Genuine good deeds win people over.” Papatia Feauxzar

“When people stop speaking to me for no apparent reason I can think of, I like to brush it off thinking ‘Oh, I must be shining too bright for them’ or ‘I put them to shame’. Conceited huh? Haha! I know. I’m not perfect. It keeps the whispers at bay trust me.” Papatia Feauxzar

“I’m a unicorn; a horse with a pointy golden crown. Alhamdullilah. I might look nice and enchanting. But screw with me and I’ll bite your head off!”Papatia Feauxzar

“Stop competing. Look at a bookshelf or a library. Its beauty comes from its diverse repertoire. You don’t only see books written all by the same author.” Papatia Feauxzar

When opportunity knocks at the door, answer the door. Always be ready to execute the answers to your duas. You might call that impatience, I call that seizing the moment. You have to have an eye for opportunities that will never present themselves again.”  Papatia Feauxzar

“Faith is your best weapon!” Papatia Feauxzar

“All I’m doing is trying to follow the footsteps of our predecessors like Khadijah Al Kubra, Fatima Al-Fihri Al Quraysh, Nusaybah bint Ka’ab and Abu Bakr (May Allah be pleased with all of them) in the way they supported the ummah with their sweat and wealth. I love doing Allah’s work and bidding in dunya alhamdullilah. I also love giving back to the ummah. May Allah purify my intentions, ameen.” Papatia Feauxzar

“Cheating is not good. I rather fail in the eyes of His creations instead of His.” Papatia Feauxzar

“Petty people stay petit(small) . Don’t mind them and don’t look back. Keep going!” Papatia Feauxzar

“I remain a mystery because I have many hats and hearts ;). Wouldn’t you say it’s hard to truly know anyone?”Papatia Feauxzar

“All the mistakes I’ve made in my life taught me something. So therefore don’t be affraid to make them or of people seeing them. They make you grow. They make you better. They make you perfectly human.”Papatia Feauxzar

“My ancestors were off-line traders. That path lead them to Islam. I’m an on-line trader and I still discover Islam in these outlets. Trading is in my blood alhamdullilah.” Papatia Feauxzar

“My greatest peeves are when people don’t return my salams or think they are more busy than me and others. Simply put, they don’t respect my time and effort.”Papatia Feauxzar

“I’m not an artist. I’m a hoartist*. Yes, I came up with that. So what the heck is that? I’m a person in between an artist and a hoarder.” Papatia Feauxzar

*Austin Kleon says, “The artist is a collector. Not a hoarder, mind you, there’s a difference: Hoarders collect indiscriminately, artists collect selectively. They only collect things they really love.” There are things I don’t love but I collect anyways because my gut feeling tells me I will need them at one point or another and I usually trust that feeling. Why? Because the meaning of these things reveal itself later, and I see why I collected them in the first place. That is why I call myself a ‘hoartist’.  Papatia Feauxzar

“Business is like a marriage, the founder of the first corporate company I work with said once. It’s true. They will be good days with employees and they will be bad days. You just go with the flow.” Papatia Feauxzar

“Sophisticated people drink coffee and tea. But they drink more tea ;).” Papatia Feauxzar

“If I can talk to Allah without stop, why should I be afraid to talk to ‘high profile public figures’?” Papatia Feauxzar

“When inspiration hits, run with it!” Papatia Feauxzar

“To be successful, you have to be reader to be in the service of others. Their success lead to your success.” Papatia Feauxzar

“Do not grieve over people’s words. Instead, let them witness your greatness.” Papatia Feauxzar

“Allah gave us all have privileges. For instance, white privilege, men privilege, financial privilege, creative privilege just to name a few. It’s what you do with those privileges that defines you.”  Papatia Feauxzar

“Many uneducated Muslim women make it life a hell for other open-minded Muslim women out there. Men are at fault too because they create and support the environment that thrives on uneducating women while they live life freely. When people say it’s a men’s world. I often agree. Men and women experience dunya differently with no boundaries on them or expectations of them. Smdh!” Papatia Feauxzar

“i (lower case intentional) was destined for GREATNESS insha’Allah. i’m leaving a legacy and my legacies will go GREATER heights than I did bi’ithnillah!” Papatia Feauxzar

“I’m a visionary. I’m a dreamer. I’m many things alhamdullilah.” Papatia Feauxzar

“Not everything displayed in a store is meant to be sold. Some items are often there to make a subtle statement ;).” Papatia Feauxzar

“Likes and shares don’t translate in sales. That said, don’t get it twisted. People will often like your posts not because they agree with you. They often like the person you’re featuring or respect what you have to say while still disagreeing with you.” Papatia Feauxzar

“We were created out of chemical particles. This is how scientific Islam is. Therefore, pure souls are literally allergic to artificial chemicals whether ingested or applied on the body. The pure body will naturally reject such abominations. Think about it.”  Papatia Feauxzar
