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

  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)

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…
