Don’t be sad

In the name of Allah, The Beneficent,The Merciful.Blessings on the noblest of mankind,his household,companions and all those who follow his path till the day of reckoning.

It’s been a very long while but I’m not going to give up.I tried to give the blog a pretty new look but only succeeded in battering the old look but like I said earlier on,I’m not gonna give up. I have decided to write what’s on my mind till I get it right with how I want the blog to look like,I’m no longer waiting for the perfect look.

It’s just like 5 days less one year my hubby passed on by the Gregorian calendar but by the Islamic calendar, it was on the 12th of Dhul-Hijjah, about a week over a year.For close to 24 hours after I got the news, I didn’t shed a single drop of tear. To some people, I was strong and amazing. To some, I was still in a state of shock. To some, the time for the tears was just being postponed but to me, I was scared. I thought of it and asked myself if I was normal. I was afraid because there is this belief that it is dangerous psychologically not to shed tears when bereaved,like it’s accumulating psychological sickness in you. It is believed that weeping makes you relieved and eases your psychological stress. Later on, as the reality dawned on me,when I called his lines and they rang,were picked up but I NEVER Continue reading Don’t be sad

You can bear it

Asalam alaykum warahmatullah wabarakatuh.

All praises is due to Allah (SWT),indeed He is the best disposer of our affairs. Blessings on our noble prophet (SAW), his companions and all those who tread the path of Islam till the day of Judgement. Amin.

Allah (SWT) says in the Quran that “On no soul shall we place a burden greater than it can bear”. Do we easily reflect on this verse especially in times of trials? Does it send a signal that indeed whatever burden  is placed on us by Allah can be borne by us. Indeed the words of Allah are true.

Usually, when trials come, sometimes, in our grief, we feel and sometimes say it out that these trials are too much for us and we can’t bear it. But reflecting on the above verse,what do we think?

If Allah brings those trials to you, then you can bear it cause on no soul shall w place a burden greater than it can bear.

Astaghfirullah waatuubu ilayhi.

Wasalaamu alaykum warahmatullah wabaratuh

I’m back

Asalam alaykum warahmatullah wabarakatuh.
All praises, adoration and glorification is due to Almighty Allah, The Lord of the worlds, The reliever of burdens. Blessings on the noblest of mankind (S.A.W),his companions and all those who tread the path of truth until the day of judgement. Amin.
It’s been a very long while after my first two posts. Alhamdulillah, I’ve been fine just trying to harness some important stuff for the smooth running of the blog. Insha Allah, I hope to keep you regularly updated about what’s on my mind while hoping to remind myself and you all that as sweet as this life is, as much as we are encouraged to seek the goodness of this world and not forget our own portion of it, indeed, this life is temporal and we will one day take a bow and leave.
Before I sign off, please do me a favour by praying for me for the survival of this blog and my dreams of what I want it to become. And another favour, pray for my late husband that Allah overlooks his shortcomings,broaden and lighten his grave ,accept whatever little good deeds he sent forth and ease his accountability.Amin.
Astaghfirullah wa atuubu ilayhi, wassalamu alaykum warahmatullah wabarakatuh

The hidden good in unanswered prayers.

In the name of Allah,The beneficent,The merciful.

All praise is due to Allah, The Lord of the worlds,The All Hearing,The Answerer of prayers.

After the birth of my 18 months old baby, I had not resumed my menstrual cycle which i assume maybe i have not been ovulating( I may be wrong, not an O&B expert!) At the start of last ramadhan,I drew up my list of wants which I presented to Allah throughout the month among which included a request for another child.(specifically,a son.guess it is allowed).

After my husband passed on,funny enough,I resumed a very regular  menstrual cycle and each time the blood came,I usually feel bad wishing I was just pregnant.Though at each time I accepted Allah’s decree and moved on until last saturday when….

I was watching a programme on channels T.V when a couple who are richly blessed and highly influential was featured with a child that has a developmental problem called “cerebropalsy”. I’m not too sure I got the name of the condition well but it’s a condition that has to do with brain development.Then something told me,”How sure are you that if you were pregnant,it’s not going to be a child with developmental problems” And then, I started giving thanks.

How was it going to be like having a child with issues without the father around to give his own support. I just reminded myself that there are plenty goodies in that prayer that was not answered.

Do you have any request that is taking time to be answered? I’m sure that there are a lot of goodies in that delay. Just remind yourself of the so many good things we’ve gotten from Allah,especially the ones we know that we do not deserve and He has bestowed upon us.For verily, if we are to count our blessings,never will we be able to exhaust them!

All goodness therein is from Allah and all errors from me.

Wasalamu alaykum warahmatullah wabarakatuh.

The gift of trials.1

Alhamdulillah robbilalamin. All praise is due to Allah(swt),the Lord of the worlds.Blessings on the noblest of mankind (saw),his household and all those that tread the path of al-islam till the judgement day.(Amin). We give thanks to Allah and submit to his will. For indeed,in every affair of the believer,there is good.When good comes to him, he is grateful and when the other comes,he is patient.Sometimes,you may like a matter and such is actually not good for you and you may dislike a matter and in it there is goodness for you. Such is the case of a Muslim.

Same way,we remember that Allah (swt) says in the Quran that do we think that we will say we believe and we will not be tested? We will be tested just the way the forerunners were tested.They were shaken that they cried to Allah”When is the Help of Allah actually coming?”Indeed,the help of Allah is near.

And we will be tested with fear and hunger and loss of property and lives and fruits and give glad tidings to the patient.

Firstly, our lives and that of our loved ones do not belong to us,in fact nothing belongs to us and that is why the patient ones are described as those who when a misfortune befalls them,they say  we are Allah’s and to Him we shall surely return. May Allah make us among the patient.

To all those who have lost a loved one or a possession,know surely that Allah is with the patient.May He help us to be among the patient (Amin)

Astaghfirullah wa atuubu ilayhi, Alhamdulillah ala kuli haali.
