Team Rahim Family Traditions

Alhamdulilah it has been some time since I have updated my wonderful friends here on Traditional Muslimah Homemaker. Our family, having since moved to Georgia, we started canning together as a family mashaAllah.
We all take time to wash fruits, clean jars, and can them. The children have grown in love with making jams mashaAllah. Not only is it the start of our family tradition, it's also our family business. Selling our jams locally and online, we wanted to share our jams with others. MashaAllah alhamdulilah the feedback has been wonderful. We had our first sell not too long ago and our family was super excited.

It is important for my husband and I to teach the children through traditions. Not only are we creating memories by baking bread together, canning food, and making our own products. We are teaching them skills they will pass down to their children inshaAllah and teach their wives. Skills such as:

Good health: they are leaning that its better to make it at home and its healthier. There are so many products on the market, full of junk, GMOs, artificial things that we want the children to know it's a better ways to do things.

Bonding: They are learning the importance of family. We call ourselves Team Rahim, and it may sound cute but we want the children to know the true meaning of being a team, being a family, and how we stregthen our bonds by working together.

Problem Solving Skills: Sometimes we may not agree on certian things and in working together sometimes there will be conflicts. It's important to give them the tools to appropriately resolve problems with others, when working with others, and when we feel there is a problem... how to speak up, in a respectful, polite way.

Alhamdulilah we learned so much about each other by working together. I'm happy that Allah has blessed us to start these traditions. Baking bread, cooking together, canning and more. Its one of my joys as a mother to pass on skills the children will be able to benefit from and so on alhamdulilah. What traditions does your family do? What would you like to start?

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…
