The Islamic Art Of Being Lady Like

In this society, the more outspoken you are the more "real" you are. If you can say what's on your mind and not care who hears it and how it was said, then you are being "real".  Which is in reality, being real rude, crude, and reckless, which is real unGodly. On our social media forums, it seems that some of us ladies are not taking in consideration our tongues, minds, and hands subhanAllah.

SubhanAllah sometimes we are not thinking twice before we type.

Have you ever heard of the term loose cannon? Well, being loose is not lady like. Loose in speech, loose in actions.. is losing it-- losing our womanhood, depreciating it. Many "new aged" women would not appreciate this type of post, since they appreciate whats worldly acceptable and unGodly, and often depreciate what Islam says.

What happened to being lady like? Where we would not dare speak about certain subjects in a detail, crude, and vulgar manner?

As Muslimah women we should always mind how we…

Classy Feminine Homemaking

I read this wonderful article on homemaking and adding personal touches to enhance your homemaking attire. I must admit pearls and an apron are classy, but I do not own any pearls!

I personally felt like the prettiest homemaker ever, I didn't look frumpy and messy while cleaning. I looked fantastic and classy while cleaning mashaAllah...at least thats how I felt!

If you are ever bored with your homemaking, add extra to it. I find that sisters who go the extra mile, get extra excited about homema…

First time babywearing (DIY)

Alhamdulilah it's been awhile since I have posted. MashaAllah with the newest addition to our family here, we have been slightly busier and adjusting to new schedules and just bonding. Recently I was looking for a baby carrier. I saw some really nice looking ones such as the moby wrap and while all the colors were cool and bright, there were a few problems I had that stopped me from buying them:

1.) Too expensive
2.) Didn't appear convenient
3.) Looked uncomfortable for my back

Granted I did not buy the wrap, I read a lot of reviews from people who have and even if number 3 was not a factor, I knew number 2 would be a real issue. I could not imagine being outside, then nursing the baby and having to unwrap a lot of fabric and then needing help to redo it.

On the TMH facebook page (www.facebook.com/traditionalmuslimah) a wonderful friend and sister in Islam Umm Haya of Fulltime Muslim Mommies and Wives suggested using a bed sheet. I thought that was interesting so I looked it …
