Assalam Alaykum Warahmutallah,

Ever heard of Writers block? Well add that and laziness and that's what i'm going through. I haven't updated in quite some time.

I've been busy with Work and Studies in the past few days. The weather here is absolutely beautiful mashallah. We barely get Winter in Dubai, but when it does come, it's gorgeous. I love hearing the aadhan [Call to Prayer] from the Mosques and during Winter, it echoes more. It makes living in a Muslim Country worthwhile. I've been spending early morning drinking green tea outside and i love the peace and quite. Every individual needs ''ME'' time. It helps me to think things through and feel at ease. It's the same feeling you get when you do Salaah.

I've taken up a three month course at Al Huda [An Islamic institute] by a Sister who's come frm Al Maghrib, New York and she's absolutely amazing. We're doing the Mothers of the believers/Islamic Dawah Techniques/Fiqh of Women/Islamic Fatawas regarding Women. May Allah s.w.t give her ajar. She's a jolly Woman who keeps us entertained in her classes.

The most interesting bit that i've found till now is the Mothers of the believers - the wives of the Prophet Sallahy alayhi wasallam. Even though we as Muslims learn about them from an early age going into detail about them is different. There are so many interesting facts about Muslim Women during that time that the World doesn't know about. We had female surgeons, fighters, doctors, helpers, scholars, Students of knowledge, etc all during the time of the Prophet Sallahu alayhi wasallam and after. All this before the West even thought about ''liberating'' Women. Alhamdulilah.


There's a whole world of knowledge out there waiting to be opened.

Other then that, babies are such a joy to be around. My niece is over and she's a pleasure to be with. Watching her grow and go through all the different stages in life is fascinating. I've decided i defenitely want a baby girl [after/when/if i get married that is.]

Another thing i wanted to mention is that, the month of Dhul Hijjah in the Islamic Calendar has started. The first ten days hold great importance and have a lot of benefit. Don't forget to fast if you can and do as much Ibaadah as you can.

Ibn 'Abbas reports that the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) said, "No good deeds done on other days are superior to those done on these days [meaning the ten days of Dhul-Hijjah]." The companions asked, "O Messenger of Allaah, not even jihad in the way of Allaah?" He said, "Not even jihad, except for the man who puts his life and wealth in danger [for Allaah's sake] and returns with neither of them." [This is related by the group except Muslim and an-Nasa'i]

Abu Hurairah relates that the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) said, "There are no days more loved to Allaah for you to worship Him therein than the ten days of Dhul Hijja. Fasting any day during it is equivalent to fasting one year and to offer salatul tahajjud (late-night prayer) during one of its nights is like performing the late night prayer on the night of power. [i.e., Lailatul Qadr]." [This is related by at-Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, and al-Baihaqi]

Abu Qatadah reported that the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) said, "Fasting on the day of 'Arafah is an expiation for two years, the year preceding it and the year following it. Fasting the day of 'Ashurah is an expiation for the year preceding it." [This is related by "the group," except for al-Bukhari and at-Tirmidhi]

Hafsah reported, "There are five things that the Messenger (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) never abandoned: fasting the day of 'Ashurah, fasting the [first] 10 [days of Dhul-Hijjah], fasting 3 days of every month and praying two rak'ah before the dawn prayer." [This is related by Ahmad and an-Nasa'i]

May Allah s.w.t accept our good deeds and forgive us out sins.
May Allah s.w.t easen the affairs of the Muslim Ummah.
May Allah s.w.t keep all of us on the straight path and guide us.
May Allah s.w.t give us the best in this world and the hereafter and make us pious Muslims.
May Allah s.w.t protect the Muslims all around the World and give justice to those who need it.

Ameen.

Takecare everyone,
walaykumsalam wrbt

Blogging is haram for women :

1) internet is haram
2) communication with non-family is haram, so a blog is a wicked crime

So why do you call yourself a muslima ? You're not following the quran. At all. Stop pretending.

Mortalmuslim or someone, could you please explain the prophesies of Mehrab and the Book of Mehrab? This Book is in Paradise floating above the Qur'an (about 19 cubits above) and explicates the prophesies of Mehrab, he who sits at the right hand of Allah "and whispers in Allah's ear". It is said that Mehrab makes suggestions to allah about what to creat and how to rule the world, and that allah listens to Mehrab, that on the Last Day (Day of Judgement), Mehrab will be "lifted above all the Men and the Jinn, and will rule all that is seen in this world and all that exists in the other worlds."
