There's No Place Like Home Birth: Our Home Birth Story Part 2: Made With Love


Alhamdulilah if you have been following along on TMH, I just started learning to knit!! MashaAllah I love it, it's fun, it's relaxing, and I can make things for the ones I love.

So for my second knitting project I made our baby some booties!!! MashaAllah we made the baby two pairs, in prayer we will be placing them on the feet of our baby.


If you have ever made anything with your hands, whether cooking from scratch--- from the foundation, or making clothes... then you know the personal joy it feels to see your family enjoying what you have made and worked hard on.

Part of preparing for the home birth is preparing the babies clothes, washing them and putting them away in a sealed bag... to be open on that special day (as my midwife requested)

A clean onesie, baby booties, blanket, etc and a Bismillah, baby Rahim bag is sealed and put away for that special day.

Have you made anything for the ones you love? SubhanAllah it is so rewarding inside... why didn't I take up this wonderful hobby a long time ago?

It is the first time I have made anything for the children to wear when they are born, so I had my mommy, cry emotional moment and still do when I see them... small and made with love. My heart gets all big and excited.

Not only did I find a new hobby, I found something my heart enjoys that can help and benefit others. Really ..how awesome is that!

Handmade with love

Can't wait to place them on your little feet 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…
