For the last few nights, I have been watching my brothers & sisters in Syria being maliciously and unforgivably attacked by chemical's. The pictures alone are so gutting and heartbreaking, I can't imagine how they must be feeling. May Allah mercy them and grant them Jannah and forgive us for not doing more. The Prophet … Continue reading Syria, Kenya & Africa. Are we open minded?
When you read a book, you hold another’s mind in your hands. My dream is to have a Book Shelf the size of my apartment which would be at least 30metres? I could be way off – my maths is atrocious. The one with the ladders… not just for show… my only guests seem to … Continue reading Amilah by Haliga Hagi-Mohammed #BookReview
I wanted to write something like this for a long time… it’s been on my mind and mixed gender has gone from haram to something long forgotten… may Allah forgive us.
BROTHER IN LAW
‘Uqba Bin ‘Āmir RadhiyAllahu anhu narrates that Rasulullāh ﷺ has said that: “Beware! Avoid visiting women.” A man from Ansār asked: “What about the brother in law?” He ﷺ answered: “Brother in law is death.”
- Like how death destroys a persons physical and wordly life, in the same way for a woman to mingle with her brother in law and other ghayr mahram men will destroy her.
- Brother in law is mentioned exclusively in this hadith, because generally people do NOT consider mingling with him to be a bad thing.
- The reason for using the word “death” is because Arabs use it to warn against anything that is dangerous.

The most beautiful quote I have read for a long time... ❤ ❤ ❤ When her son Al-Hassan observed her praying into the night for others, he asked her why she didn’t pray for anything for herself, to which she replied – “My son!

Many times, we have heard this saying to the point, I almost believed it myself. Always on the news channels, sometimes daily, there are news bulletins of a terrorist attack happening either in the Muslim world or in the non Muslim world. However, I noticed something else...depending on exactly where the attack happened, the news … Continue reading “Not every Muslim is a terrorist but every terrorist is a Muslim.”
To the people I love: What I wish most for you above all else, is to be content with getting close to God. Closeness to Him is a journey with many highs, and many more lows. But what I pray for you is that during the lows - you never quit. You keep standing in … Continue reading To the people I love…❤
Only having recently started this book myself, I can already fully recommend it & can’t wait to do my own book review once I have finished it, in sha Allah! Until then, please read my lovely sister Ashley’s review & please, if you get the chance, read this book of short stories, you won’t regret it!
I am super excited to share today’s book review with you, because it is something a bit more interesting than my usual resources-sharing business. It is a work of fiction!
I took on this book review mostly because I wanted to help out an awesome Muslimah author, and get her work in front of more eyes. And I was sure I would like the book, because I like books (except Great Expectations. I don’t know why that is even allowed to exist.). At any rate, as soon as I got the PDF in my inbox and started reading, I was very, very surprised.
I could not put this book down. Seriously, I don’t think I have devoured a book like that since the Harry Potter days. I am already planning my second reading as I type this now, and I am still a little bit shocked at…
