Surah Al Ma’idah: 8

O you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah and be just witnesses and let not the enmity and hatred of others make you avoid justice. Be just: that is nearer to piety, and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Well-Acquainted with what you do.

I Miss You

Just A Random Post………….

Before I got married, I had a musalla that was so rough I ended up getting a deep prostration mark. My mother became worried saying, ‘O gosh, you have one of those now?” As if she had just seen a gang tattoo on my forehead. Lol. Anyway, I lovedddddd my prostration mark and what I felt it meant. Although now I know it’s just a mark, not something that means you pray more or stay in sajood longer than others, I still get sad about the fact that I no longer have it. The carpet is really soft here and on the musalla my husband had when I moved in, so my forehead just kinda sinks into it when I prostrate. Once in a while I go to a new masjid and find it to have a rougher musalla. I let out a small sigh of relief when I prostrate and feel that pain on my skin. I know it sounds crazy, but it reminds me of when I had a prostration mark oh so dark on my forehead. No one could convince me that anything was more beautiful about me than my prostration mark. I would look at it again and again in the mirror, as if it was a badge of honor. I had the mark of a muslim who humbles herself before her Lord. What could be better?

Oh, how I miss yo,u prostration mark.

This was really random, but I was bored and wanted to write so, there ya go.

Surah An Nisa: 78

“Wheresoever you may be, death will overtake you even if you are in fortresses built up strong and high!” And if some good reaches them, they say, “This is from Allah,” but if some evil befalls them, they say, “This is from you (O Muhammad SAW).” Say: “All things are from Allah,” so what is wrong with these people that they fail to understand any word?

It’s Been A While

Sorry readers. I know I haven’t posted in a while. Well.. hurricane Sandy hit my area so I didn’t have power for 6 days, so I ended up staying at my bnrother in law’s house. Awkward to say the least, and crowded. My husband was away during all this because his work had him go to Texas, since the office up here would probably lose power. When he got back from nice old Texas, he informed me that he liked it a lot down there and we will be moving there in July insha Allah. So, being a person who likes to do things way before they need to be done, I’ve been searching for apartments like crazy, looking at school systems, and crime rates. Crossing my T’s and dotting my I’s. I will get back to posting insha Allah.
