“Bismillahir rahmaanir raheem”
-in the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful-

I’m also just so heartsore for kulsum… imagine after trying for over 20 years to have a baby, you are finally blessed with falling pregnant….. and then its gone…

I guess that makes us realise how Allah is in complete control of everything…

Allah can give and Allah can take… and Allah makes no mistakes!!

Whatever it is that Allah takes, wasn’t even ours in the first place… but that’s something we fail to understand..

We have this habit of claiming possession…its mine! Everything is MINE! Don’t touch MY things…

But do we ever realise that nothing infact belongs to us…everything belongs to Allah….

How can we be angry at Allah for taking away something that was His from the beginning?

Its tough…really tough…but the beauty part of all of this is that we are muslims… And we have imaan… And there’s consolement for every little thing that we go through…

For a simple thorn prick, we are rewarded b Allah and our sins are forgiven for every inch of pain experienced…

Everyone is tested differently…

Every household is going through their own tests in life…

If its not marriage problems, then its problems with the inlaws…

If its not being unable to get married, then its being unable to have a baby…

If its not poverty…then its having too much and suffering with debt…

If its not sickness, then its something else…

But there’s always something or the other…we just oblivious to what goes on in everyones lives..

We think that everyones living happily just because they portray themselves in such a way that you’ll never guess…

Sometimes it makes me think that we need to be more considerate to other people because we don’t know what the next person may be going through…

If someone is rushing and driving recklessly in the car infront of you, don’t swear them! Maybe they’re going through some kind of emergency or running away from something….(Just saying..MAYBE)..

If you smile at someone and they don’t smile back…maybe its because they’ve undergone some major tragedy today…

Anyway…now I was excited because aunti faati, aqeels mum, called to invite us over for lunch on sunday….

Yipppeee!!! Aqeel and salma are coming back on sunday and she insists that we come over for lunch…

I haven’t been in much contact with salma….just an sms here and there… Since I’m not into all these social networks, it becomes abit more tougher to communicate…

But she did text one of the days to say that she had the trip of her life…and she can’t wait to get back and tell me how it went…

I sooo envy her..I’ve never been fortunate enough to visit the holy lands….I hope that oneday I am blessed with the opportunity inshallah….

As much as its my hears desire, ismail and I have never really discussed going for umrah or haj before..

May be because we never had the means to and ismails interests were in other things..

My kids are at the perfect age at the moment.. I think they’ll really enjoy it..maybe I should bring it up with ismail oneday.. Who wouldn’t have an inclination to goi to such a beautiful place?… Right close to the nabi of Allah(S.A.W)..

Sunday came before I even knew it and I was putting my final touches to my chocolate mousse pavlova to take with for dessert…

Aunty faati was having a braai.. Apparently aqeel and salma were feeling for a traditional barbeque… so I thought I’ll make the pavlova for after… Something rich and sweet will go down nice and well after the braai…

    It is so true that we are tested in different ways n sometimes we might be envying someone for what they have and they might be envying u for what u have. Also الله in his infinite wisdom knows what is best for each of his servants and he gives and takes what he feels is best for us bcoz what he takes doesn’t benefit الله in the least n whatever الله gives doesn’t diminish his treasures in the least.
    Can’t wait to hear about Salma n Aqeel’s umrah.
