A Mother's Thoughts

The whole house is sleeping this early Friday morning and I cant sleep. Using the time to think, blog and catch up. I also watch the children sleep. I thank Allah for all of them. I thank Allah for blessing me with 5 children to care for. God knows I dont feel like the best wife and mom a lot of times but I do know I strive to get better. I watch them crawl, walk, and run.. i'm seeing them grow into their own. 

As mothers we are constantly praying that Allah guides us to raise peaceful, loving, and God conscious children. Some people may not think we do much of anything because we "stay" at home, but the lives we take care of and help to mold, are an important part of society. Life lessons, relationship matters and schooling are being done in the home and this is no easy task. Every day  it is important to ask Allah to guide us in managing our homes and taking care of our children.

I know at the end of the day when they are sleeping, they were fed, taught, loved and it makes me feel good.

For every dirty dish..my children were fed, thank you Allah
For every piece of laundry in the basket... my children were clothed. thank you Allah
For every book out, my children were learning alhamdulilah
For every hug and kiss.. my children were nurtured and loved subhanAllah

We do more than stay at home, we provide a service at home. This service is one that doesnt require money, it requires heart... to provide this service we must do it with love. When we do it with love, it becomes more fulfilling ... and the lives around us benefit from this love. You put this energy into what you do..... and you gain so much more from it ya Allah!

This is my early morning  rant.. just watching my children sleep. May Allah protect them always ameen.

  1. This is beautiful - and appropriate! Through the Grace of Allah, I have been blessed with a beautiful little boy, and with the prospect of more children on the horizon, I have often wondered whether I am up for the task. Your inspirational words have motivated me and nudged me right back into the "yummy-mummy" mode!

    JazakAllah :)

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…

5 Ways To Love Your Husband MORE

I had to blow the dust off the blog tonight, as I only write when I am feeling inspired. SubhanAllah, tonight feels like a good night to share a few thoughts on the blog.
How can you, love your husband more?


1.) Speak words that will uplift his spirit. I remember when I would be feeling nervous, and anxious about some event, and my husband (may Allah have mercy on him, ameen) would say encouraging words, that made me feel like the most confident woman in the world. We have the ability to be that voice of encouragement in our mates lives. What mountains we cannot move, when our spouse speaks life into our being! Through out the day, speak to your mate in a way that will help them be better. 
2.) Put your love into action: Yes you can say "I love you" all day long, but adding to that by doing loving gestures, show and prove what we feel inside. Surprising our spouse by writing a love note, or sending a loving text, adds a little more joy to their days. In a world where there …

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. …
