part 141:

I answered without even looking at my screen to see who was calling…I was absolutely groggy…


Person:”don’t tell me you’re still sleeping sal…?”

Me:”fay…what is wrong with you calling so early in the morning?(Yaawn)”

Fay:”its not early you clown….its 11 o clock…..get up or you’ll be late for your walima…..I’ll be there in 10 minutes…make sure you’re bathed and decent enough for me to start your make up…and the hairdresser is scheduled for 11:30″

Me:”oh crap….(Yawn)..oh k”

Aqeel:”(his eyes still closed)who’s that?”

Me:”its faaiza…..its late…its 11 already”

Aqeel:(putting the pillow over his head)”do we have to go to the walima?”

I laughed:”duh”

I got out of bed and jumped in the shower……ooooh what a lovely shower…it was better than my shower at home….I did my usual morning rituals and slipped on my cloak from last night just in time for the intercom…

Aqeel also got up and decided that he’ll use the guest bathroom and room to get ready so that we could have the room to ourselves for our major beautification….

Fay arrived with the hairstylist and they got started on the time they were done I was shocked at the end results….I still looked like me though but a different me…

Today I had a slight upstyle and had a dainty diamante alice band to complete it…

Fay did my make up very naturally again….she just knew what I’d like….and then I slipped my dress on…

It looked dress was a cream dress with full silver work..the top was fitted, the sleeves came to a point at the wrist, it had buttons all the way from the top to my waist at the back and went slightly flowing from waist down….not as flare as a ballroom dress but not straight either…

I slipped over my matching cape over…it was in the same cream material but no silver work on it…there was a silver braiding around the neck and down the middle and at the bottom aswel as the edge of the sleeves…the cape flowed into a slight trail at the back…

My scarf was also bordered with abit of the silver braiding…….

And I was ready and set to leave once I’d performed my zuhr salaah…

I had no hectic stiffening and all of that so going down in sajdah was no problem at all..thank goodness…

It is my major day, but in no way was I going to sacrifice my salaah just because I needed to look good…

Allah comes first….I always wondered about brides who wore those extremely hectic gowns, how do they perform salaah with that?…if they do perform at all that is…I truly hope that every bride performs their salaah….it would be of such a waste to have a walima which we claim to do because its sunnah but then not performed our fardh(compulsory) acts….

Aqeel looked more handsome than last night.he had on a sort of bronzish camel colour kurta with a matching topi and a camel colour suede shoe which blended in perfectly…

We left for the venue…aqeel told me that it would be completely seperate so if I felt comfortable I could remove my scarf but with our indian weddings, the men are known to come into the hall at some point…I’d have to wait to see the vibes when I get there because as much as we sometimes say its a seperate affair..the men usually do the serving which defeats the purpose also….

We reached the venue…it was so crowded…it seems as if we were abit late..but what the hell?!…we were the bride and groom…I guess its allowed..

Aqeel then walked me in to the ladies area and I was in absolute awe of everything that stood before me….
