Being A Good Example.. From The Best Example

SubhanAllah, feels like I have not been here to blog in a long time. It's like catching up with old friends, picking up where we left off, being excited about good news, and then parting ways until next time.

So dear friends, old and new, I have some great news mashaAllah. I was invited to speak in Philadelphia at the Natural Birth Natural Body Conference alhamdulilah!! SubhanAllah I'm excited and nervous.

I thank Allah for the blessing to be able to share and learn from others.  It's always quite a big deal when people are asking for advice, following along on your journey and seeing you as a good example. SubhanAllah sometimes we are in positions to be of means to help others, even by our words alone. I am appreciative that sisters often ask questions and benefit from the TMH page, all praise is due to Allah truly. Alhamdulilah we must all remember that even when we think no one is watching, The One is always watching. Our children look to us as examples, and we have to learn how to be better examples, and how can we learn that? We learn from the best example Prophet Muhammad salAllahu alayhi wa salaam and the other great examples, strong, intelligent, God fearing women and men of the past, who should be part of our present life in ways of action, mannerisms and devoutness to Allah.

Alhamdulilah as I prepare to speak in Philly I ask Allah to guide my words and actions and forgive me of my many errors and make me better than what people think of me. I pray Allah is pleased with the service I am striving to provide the community, which is to remind the sisters and myself to be good muslimahs, wives, and mothers and that what we do in our home and how we raise our children, impacts the world. That our beloved mission is one that is respectable and beautiful. To not be afraid to be a happy homemaker or be ashamed, we are making it known that we are not oppressed and sad about being service at home moms. Alhamdulilah we are happy with our station in this life and pray Allah elevates us in the next.

When I have time to myself i reflect on things like this and say wow subhanAllah I am going to be speaking to sisters about marriage, families etc ...mashaAllah alhamdulilah please let it be of benefit.

May Allah guide us to be good examples in our homes and community ameen.
For those in the Philadelphia area the conference info can be found here: www.nbnbconference.info please keep me in your duaas inshaAllah!

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…
