part 94:

After doc gave us the following advice, we left….


The point of counselling is to teach us that communication is very important…tell eachother how you feel….whether you’re happy, angry or sad…its important to explain your emotions…


A woman and a man are both very different human beings….a lot of the time a woman expects a man to just understand or know what she’s feeling inside….whereas really he has no idea whatsoever…


Appreciation is an important point in a marriage….for any little thing that your spouse does for you…a simple thank you with a peck on the cheek can do the world of a difference…


Doc gave a good example…that when we’re eat at a restaurant, we are required to give 10% gratuity to the waiter…..the waiter is someone who hasn’t even served you half as well as your wife does but yet you give that tip….your wife serves you more than a hundred times a day…thank her for things to make her feel special and loved..its all they ever want from you….by buying someone a gift, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to show them by means of action and speech…


What was done in the past can never be undone…..but a better future can be created just by learning from past experiences…


Doc advised us that as a couple, we are definitely going to have ups and downs..but no matter what….we should always remember that we are the most important people in eachothers lives…


We don’t always have to have the last say and we don’t always have to prove that we’re right….lol..that’s often the case…just give in sometimes…Allah knows that you were right and he’ll compensate you for it…


Certain marriages turn upside down because the one wants to prove a point and be more spiteful than the next…’I’ll show that dog….he’s so spiteful..I’ll also be just so spiteful….I won’t give him breakfast tomorrow..and I won’t wash his clothes…and I’ll leave him to starve..just watch…”


By doing that its going to be a never ending battle…it can go on for years and years..but if we just give in..and let it go…lower our pride and be the first one to hug, kiss and make up….what a better world we’d be living in today….


Doc mentioned to us about a certain incident in the time of our beloved prophet (S.A.W)….someone was swearing and insulting a companion(R.A) if I’m not mistaken….(Forgive me if I’m wrong)…but he didn’t say anything….after a long while he replied…nabi(s.a.w) explained to him to the effect that the angels were replying to the man for him until he had spoken up…


We felt amazing after we left doc….ismail wasn’t angry..infact he was so much more affectionate towards me…he looked like he had deep regret…and I reassured him a million times that it was over and he should never think of it ever again…


Today we didn’t make any mistakes with who’d pick the kids up…I asked salma to….lol..we didn’t need any confrontations between salma and aqeel, knowing how aqeel feels about her…


Once reaching home, salma joined us for lunch, I got the kids ready and ismail went to drop them off at madressah and then advanced to work…


Shukr(thanks) to Allah..ismails really been enjoying work…he says its almost stress free and the people he works with are quite efficient…


So once everyone was gone and we were done clearing up the lunch table there was sufficient time to catch up with salma on her istikhaarah and what she had decided….


Me:”so sal?how’s you istikhaarah going?you getting anywhere with it…”


Salma:”I guess so (sigh)…”


Me:”aaaaNdd?why don’t you look too happy…”


Salma:”we’ll I have been reading istikhaarah..and that short istikhaarah dua you gave me and I’ve been doing my research and I’ve been stalking the guy on all social networks possible….”




Salma:”well his facebook has mostly mostly mostly”


Me:”soo?that’s a good thing..atleast you know he’s not some kind of a pervert or player”


Salma:”here….here’s a pic of him..(Handing me her phone)…Its his facebook profile..”


Me:(taking her phone)”…oooh…cheese boy I see(giggling)…”


Salma:”exactly my point”


Me:”what?you worried about how him being a cheese boy…..?eventually he’ll grow his beard.look at ismail…okay its after sooo many years but still..his doing it..”


Salma:”fay!you could still see that ismail used to shave…he had that green all over his face….but this guy is like clean clean…like he lasers or waxes or something..”


I was ripped…..I couldn’t stop….


Me:”sal you are crazy..honestly!”


Salma:”and look at him with his hair all gelled back…and a leather jacket?like really….?who wears leather jackets nowadays…”


Me:”did you tell your mother all this?I highly doubt it cos if you did she be running after you with her rolling pin(laughing like mad)….no seriously sal…..didn’t you already see him when he came for the samoosa run?”


Salma:”that’s what’s bothering me fay….he had on a kurta and topi when he came to see me…”




Salma:”well I’ve come to a conclusion about me and this chap….fay……I think goolaam bhai is…….”

    Goolam bhai😁 I think we have our answer. Salma has her made her choice
    She read her istighara dua and allah has been showing her signs
    Its so true that we remember what happened yesterday can’t be changed and we can only learn from it

    Beautiful advise. The example if I’m not mistaken that our dearest author spoke of was when a disbeliever was tatunting Hz Abu Bakr (closest friend to Nabi (S.A.W)) Nabi (S.A.W) sat there smiling, n as soon as Hz. Abu bakr madew a remark Nabi (S.A.W) left. Whe He questioned Nabi (S.A.W) he was advised that when the disbeliever was taunting u, Allah ordered an angel to reply on ur behalf, but as soon as u decided to speak n defend urself, shaytan had appeared to cheer u on, n I (Nabi S.A.W) do not sit in the same gatherng as shaytaan. I’m not sure if this is d incident author was trying to bring forward.

    • Jx soooo much my dear sister..may Allah increase you in knowledge…I was thinking that it was hazrat abu bakr..but I was doubting myself and didn’t want to mention it for fear that I could have been wrong….will inshalah post this on the inspirations page….

    • Jhee, that’s correct. It was Hadhrat Abu Bakr (RA) , and he was wondering why, his friend, the Prophet (SAW), was not even sticking up for him. Alhumdulillah, our Nabi (SAW) was aware of the angels cursing this man who was taunting Abu Bakr (RA). Was going to mention this incident on my blog one of the days, but Alhumdulillah, Allah Ta’ala has put it in you to inspire first. Keep up the good work, Sister.

      • You’re more than welcome to mention it on your blog still..why not?its not my words…its that of nabi(s.a.w)’s so why not mention it over n over again…

        U said it yourself…that we all know..but need to be reminded over again…..something my ustaads used to always say…when you repeatedly mention something…it settles in your heart….:)

        Besides..wen u put things in ur blog it just sounds so much better than if I had to say it… 🙂

    So true, we should always show appreciation. And us females tend to get quite emotional, men don’t understand things like that, they need to be explained to.
    Sounds like its a no for goolam, wonder will aqeel go to ‘see’ her… What stories salma will have for faaiza… Already awaiting that convo.
    Btw the incident you mentioned is correct. (I think u were unsure?)
