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…

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 …

5 Ways To Love Yourself MORE

Yep, there I am, jumping on the trampoline in my sisters yard yesterday. As I told a friend, you can't help but smile on a trampoline. I couldn't jump and be angry, or feel sad at the same time. 
Alhamdulilah I felt like reaching for the sky, free, and alive. I haven't felt that way since my husband passed away last month (December 20th, 2016). Life has not been the same. Yesterday I decided to get some fresh air and I felt good. It was nice to step outside for a little bit.
My last post was written on loving your husband's more, which can also be applied to wives. Our time here isn't long, and in losing my husband, I am extra reminded to encourage wives to love their husbands more. That has always been part of my blog's goal, but God is telling me to remind women more, through my own experience.

But in loving your husbands more, do not forget yourself. You are important. Yes, some women need to be reminded that they are important. You have to take care of you…
