We can start off by apologizing or we can go with guns blazing, but... we have a better idea. Why not start by educating everyone even ourselves first.
With that intent, Shadiyana had its first online workshop on the 18th of Nov, 2022 on a sunny Friday afternoon. The weather didn’t matter since it was outside but paints a better picture, doesn’t it?
The session was for all females, mainly because a lot of the topics covered were related to females.
It was also anonymous. So everyone renamed themselves with fun aliases from Chirya to Bumble Bee.Due to the sensitive nature of the content, this was not recorded by Shadiyana.
There were 4 speakers present who were compensated with tokens, which was why the event was ticketed.
Here is the recap of the amazing workshop
Content of the webinar:
The workshop had four very informative segments.
The first Segment:
Speaker: Dr. Saman Habib, Gynecologist and Obstetrician
Topic: The medical POV of the Wedding Night
Dr. Saman beautifully explained the anatomy of the female body, the importance of foreplay and a good rundown of the contraceptives one should be on the lookout for. She set the tone in a such a professional manner that we could not ask anyone better.
The second segment:
Speaker: Reem Abassi, student of Shariah law
Topic: Consummation and intimacy in Islam
Reem elaborated on the Islamic perspective of Islam, the duas, the permitted and unpermitted, and also about Sunnah with respect to this.
The third segment:
Speaker: Aabiya Ziadi, Cofouder of Cherie Lingerie
Topic: Making BRA-ve choices
She explained how women tend to wear the wrong bra size and induce so many back aches and what not. Another key point from her session was how bras are supposed to make you feel confident and comfortable.
The fourth segment:
Speaker: Zaofishan Qureshi, Psychotherapist
Topic: Preparing yourself mentally and emotionally for the wedding night.
The most wonderful thing Zaofishan did was to make us realize that intimacy is a two way street. Ladies have as much role in this as much as a man.
