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! Besides, I wanted something different and special. A friend of mine on facebook crochets and she made these wonderful hijab pins. (Aqilah Crochet)

I bought a few, looking to update my homemaking and hijab attire. MashaAllah they came in the mail and added so much beauty and feminine class to my every day look. While they weren't pearls, they were much better mashaAllah. Beautiful handmade flowers in beautiful colors. I put my hair up, put on my apron and clipped the flower in my hair. 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 homemaking and those who don't usually won't.

You can get bored day in and day out doing the same thing, the same way, and it can then become lifeless, and not so...exciting

It's amazing what one little crochet flower can do, a pretty apron (homemade), and changing the style of your hair can do for you and for your family. MashaAllah the children and hubby loved it and it was nice to do something different

In our homemaking we should make it exciting ..try new meals the whole week, decorate, make desserts you never tried before and watch how you feel afterwards.

Changing up my look a little, did a lot for me mashaAllah. I love my flowers and wear them every time I go out and often times when I am in the house.

How do you add class to your homemaking? Is it a pair of earrings, how you wear your hair, or the kind of clothes you wear? If you don't then inshaAllah it would be really good to do something new.

The Passing Of A Prince

One month later...  If you would have told me, that I would be eventually blogging as a widow, I would have probably said that I couldn't imagine it!

Well here I am, writing as a widow. My husband (may Allah have mercy on him, and grant him jannah ameen ameen) passed away last month, December 20th, 2016, from complications from his condition.  My whole life changed and I am learning to heal and process this tremendous loss with our six children.

I met my husband in 2006 mashaAllah, and as I like to tell people, I started this adventure 10 yrs ago when I met a Prince from Kings County (Brooklyn NYC) married him, and became his princess alhamdulilah. When we first met, I felt like "wow this handsome guy, I cant believe he is even giving me the time of day." Lord knows I am thankful for all the time of our days, our road trips, and adventures.

I think of an old status message I shared on facebook
" I've dedicated ten years of my heart to this loveable adventurous g…

As salamu alaykum To The Struggling Wife

As salamu alaykum to The Struggling wife....





You are the heart of the home. You are his support, his cheerleader, and he needs you to be by his side. Do you know how important you are to him and to your home?

You are worth more than you know. It may not be said often, but without you... Life would be a little more difficult.

I know you're struggling right now to be a better wife and I know you want to do better. Don't put too much pressure on yourself.

Keep asking Allah to guide you in becoming a better wife. Realize that you have a lot of worth and your husband knows it, he married you, he knew you were the woman who could make his life better.

Write down what you can do to make your marriage better and focus on that daily. He put you with this man, that you love, that you decided to marry. You made a commitment, and you said "I am his committed helper." so keep going! Yes it's not always easy, sometimes you want to leave... But you are a strong, praying woman. …

Remember Who Your Husband Is

On the eve of our 9th year anniversary, I'm doing a lot of reflecting. I saw a blog post entitled "Remember Who Your Husband Is." and the title stood out to me but in a different way so I decided to write my own post. I'm reflecting on nine years of marriage and who my husband is.

So who is he?

Lets remember ..

He is a gift from Allah.

Allah blessed me with him and it is my great honor to take care of my gift.
He is not to be abused, mistreated, and taken for granted. Allah has put us together and  for that I'm thankful Alhamdulilah. I'm here to assist him in the best way possible. Allah did not burden me with him, He did not curse me, but what He did do is bless me Alhamdulilah! When you know you are blessed you show gratitude!

He is the leader of our home.

Not only did Allah send me this gift. He also put me under his leadership. In remembering who he is, we must remember and respect his position of leadership. We should always pray that Allah is constantl…
