As salamu alaykum To The Tired Mama

To the tired mama,

May Allah bless you for all that you are doing. When you think no one sees your struggles, Allah does. When you think no one hears your cries at night, Allah hears. When you think you are alone, Allah is always there.

You're not the only one who wants to cry when things can feel too much. Dishes on constant rotation, children screaming without hesitation, and you're ready to run..who cares the destination!

We understand how you feel, and from one mother to another your loving work is not in vain. There is much good in all that you do. When our children are older, and on their own, it is your teachings that they take with them. It is your love, nourishment, and sacrifices that help them to be who they are. Trust me, it is and will be appreciated. Allah has blessed us in this beautiful role, and it is a honor, but with this honor, there will be sleepless nights, tears, worry, and sometimes stress, but I also know, that with this honor comes love, laughter, happiness, and hugs. The good in this outweighs the not so good moments, but theres lessons in all of this. Lessons for you  and for your family.

Be easy on yourself and take a moment to rest, refresh and pray. Prayer changes your heart, your life and ask Allah for guidance. Don't feel bad because everything is not done, we are not perfect, take your time and do as much as you can without overdoing it. You cannot give your best if you are not at your best, and a little does go a long way.

Tired mama this homemaker is sending a special prayer and hug your way. I ask that you remember these few things:

Our blessed job, serves humanity.. we are working to send God conscious, loving, kind, and productive people into society (praying their good works and lessons be a means for them to enter jannah) and that will take some loving work.

You can do this... some days are rough but Allah knows, things could be worse, remember be grateful

Pray.... stop and make duaa, focus in your prayer and ask Allah to renew your strength

Remember: You are a blessing
----- Ameera


  1. I love you for the sake of Allah and am blessed to have crossed paths with you sister xo

  2. Walaikum assalam Sister and thank you for this beautiful message, Masha'Allah. I have 5 children; 17yrs(M), 14yrs(M, 11yrs(F), 7yrs(M) & 2yrs(M) and I have felt like a "Tired Mama" often (though I rarely cry). Like you mentioned so beautifully sister, the good in this role out weighs the bad drastically. Moments when I have felt that I was not getting through to my kids or important tools my husband and I were attempting to provide them with were being disregarded (ie. prayer, Islam as compass for life), my children have then turned around and given the same advice to their peers or each other. Alhamdulullah a mercy from Allah SWT. We trade the diapers for dishes then the dishes for the tug of world with dunya but as long as we hold tight to the rope of our deen in sha Allah we will all attain success (Quran 3:185)

  3. Assalam alaikum,sister. Your post made me feel so good. Because I felt and feel exactly like that - 'tired mama'. Like your blog
    Assalam alaikum

  4. May Allah swt bless all your endeavors ameen!!!! 💜💜💜💜💜💙💙💙

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 …

Praying For Your Husband

Good morning world,

This morning I felt inspired to write a few words, in prayers that it will benefit you all out there. One of the best things we can do for our spouse is to pray for them.

What is so awesome about prayer, is that God understands what we are saying, knows what we want to say, and no matter if its aloud or deep within our heart... He knows, He understands and He hears us.

Even as a widow, one of the things I continuously do, is pray for my late husband (rahimahullah)


Pray for God's guidance, husbands have a lot of decisions to make. Their role as the leader of the home is such an important role, that God's guidance is for sure needed. When praying for your husband, pray that God guides his decisions, his steps. As wives, one of your duties is to encourage him to pray too, gently remind him that with God, there is success. Every move we make, should be in a direction God is pleased with.

Pray for their health and safety- the world today is not the easies…
