part 123

I rushed over to salmas house as soon as I was done with supper….the kids were more than happy to come with..they needed a bit of a break….this term has been really different and hectic for them..its a lot of adjusting to do..from no school to now suddenly waking up very early every day and having a full day at both school and madressah…

Ismail dropped me and went to aqeel..he said that he’s not from the brides side…he’ll come from the grooms

Salma was a nervous wreck when I got there…she was sitting infront of her cupboard with the doors open and peeling the skin off her fingers…something salma does when she’s stressed or nervous….sort of like how some people bite their nails…but atleast her nails are intact…but by the looks of it, I’m not sure if she’ll have any skin left by the time aqeel gets here…

I couldn’t help but burst out laughing…

Salma glared at me…
“And what exactly do you find funny?you supposed to have been here long ago…..”

Me:”sal…you’re not getting married today…the guys just coming to see you and talk….its not like you haven’t been through this a million times already…”

Salma:”ya well…this times its different….I don’t even know what to wear..whether I should wear an abaya or a dress with a scarf….”

Me:”honestly, I don’t think what you wear is going to makes a difference..the guy already decided that he wants to marry you so even if you go wearing your sameera, he’s not going to change his mind…”

Salma gave me a filthy look..

Me:”okay let’s start….what do you feel comfortable in?a dress?or an abaya?”

Salma:”err….an abaya….I think…but….what if….”

Me:”(cutting her off)…no what ifs….you say you’re more comfortable in an abaya….so let’s find one…”

I started rummaging through salmas cupboard…

Me:”err..sal?why don’t you have much in here?”

Salma:”reminder fay..?.I was supposed to like get married this weekend(pointing to her suitcase)..”

Me:”right!….sorry..I forgot….(Laugh)”

I started going through her suitcase which was immaculately packed…that’s salma for you..everthings always perfect..she packs in such a way that youl be able to find anything and nothing gets creased…salma has is paranoid about creases….she goes loony if she finds even one crease anywhere…

Salma:(still peeling her skin)..”So I phoned aunty saabira”

Me:(continuing to look through her suitcase)”oh ok….how’s she doing?”

Salma:”ok I guess…..but that’s not why o phoned her…”

Me:(I stopped and turned to look at her confused)”then?why’d you phone her?”

Salma:”cos….I needed to speak to her..she seems wise and I just wanted to know what she thinks about the whole idea of aqeel coming to see me when her son just passed away yesterday…”

Me:”and?what did she have to say?you didn’t have to ask her you know, you were not married as yet…”

Salma:”I know..but it just felt like the right thing to do…I don’t usually care what people say..but I wanted to know what her opinion would be….”

Me:”so what was her opinion?”

Salma:”she sounded really happy…and she told me she already gave me advise last night to move on as soon as I get a good proposal….so if I think aqeel is good enough for me then I should go ahead and allow him to come…but the best thing would be to make istikhaarah before jumping into anything…but she gives me all her duas if I do decide to say yes…and I should learn a lesson from what happened to goolam and not wait for too long…nikaah should be made as soon as possible….”

Me:”aww that is so thoughtful of her….and to think, if it was someone else, they wouldve been so angry, that my son is not even cold in his grave yet and you already phoning to ask if you can marry someone else….”

Sal:”I think aunty saabira will be one of those people I’ll always look up to….I think I’ll always call her for good advise..rather than my mother who’s just too eager to marry me off and get rid of me…”

I chose a simple yet stunning abaya and told salma to get ready while I help her mum in the kitchen…

At exactly 8pm ismail sent me a message to tell me that they’re on their way…

Oh the butterflies I was getting…almost as if it was my samoosa run…however, this is going to be thee most interesting samoosa run ever…

Authors note:
Sorry for the delay in posting today….just been a really crazy day for me…..busy preparing all the savouries for salma and aqeels special day… Salmas been through so many samoosa runs that her mum ran out of samoosas…lol
Enjoy!and jumu’ah mubarak to everyone…rem me and my family in ur special duas

  8. Salaams Mrs Author. Loving where this is going, i await the beep of your post freshly pressed to my email daily….. the mayyit series really got to me…. really excited to have salma and aqeel going! The lessons iv been learning from this blog, iv been trying ti integrate into my own life, just the other day i looked at a girl with the tightest skinny jeans and a scarf, and i begged myself not to judge her and thought of all my wrongs, of us, piety may not necassarily mean what you wear….

    I want to please trouble you. Would you please post link of my wordpress account in your next post?

    Its i’ve written out the whole story and put it into 5 parts. I will be doing that with the rest of my stories, i dont like the anticipation of what goes next….

  9. Assalaamualaikum.. I read the whole blog from the beggining.. Till part 123 and believe it or not I only started last night.. Your blog is really amazing I absolutely love it.. Especially the fact that there’s something to learn from in almost every post.. And it seems soo real the story..

    Fay is really an amazing person most definitely with a heart of gold.. And Ismail is really changing for the better I hope that he stays like how he is now and doesn’t go back to he’s old self.. And Akeel seems like a really sweet down to earth guy.. And Salma is most definitely a bubbly and very talkertive girl.. And gulaam he seemed to have become very islamic and he really seemed like an amazing guy.. And Nori lolz she’s surely nuts to be having a thing with an african.. And fays mil she’s definitely a terrible terrible person who cares for no one but herslef.. And her two sisterinlaws like they very perfect or something..

    Sadly that how a lot of people are nowadays.. They think that they perfect if only they thought the most perfect person was our beloved nabi muhammad saw.. He was an orphan yet he was the best of all creation.. He s.a.w could of had all the mountains of makkah turned into gold yet he s.a.w refused.. He s.a.w cried everyday for us he’s ummah yet we don’t seem to care of ourselfs.. He s.a.w done soo much for each one of us my dear brothers and sisters yet we can’t just do simple things like read salaah, fast, pay zakaah, read quraan daily.. We don’t dress islamically.. Seriously nowadays when you walk in a mall, palk or anywhere for that matter.. You’ll see boys and girls auntys and uncles.. But with there dressing you don’t know if they are a muslim or not and should you greet them or not… Like a while ago I was on a picnic with my family and I saw a few boys and girls sitting and talking I didn’t think that they muslims.. But then I heard them calling each other by there names and I was shorked that they where actually muslims.. Its sad really..
    Think my dear brothers and sister (allah swt forbid) if there happens to be an earchquark, tsunami, tornado or anything for that matter and you there you’d most probably die.. Dear sisters if you didnt have on an abaya and scarf or even just a scarf they’d bury you with the non muslims naaoothu billa.. And my respected brothers if you don’t have a beard, kurta topi then the same would happen.. Allah swt save us from such calamaties.. Aameen.. And may he make it easy for all the muslims around the world.. Okay I think I wrote probably the longest comment on the blog thus far its more like a post.. I hope you don’t mind dear author..

    May allah make this blog a means of hidaayah and give you the health and strength to carry on.. Take care and much love: Arabian girl..!

    (Check out my blog:

    • Wow……mashallah…what an amazing comment…ofcourse I don’t mind at all…this blog does not belong to me…it belongs to every reader so everyone is welcome to comment….as long as it isn’t any kind of hate speech…

      Jx for that…enjoyed ur blog till where I’ve read too…its different and also has islamic aspects and that’s what I love the most…keep it up…mashallah…I just haven’t had tym yet to catch up on blogs so haven’t read the latest post…
