There's No Place Like Home Birth: Our Home Birth Story Part 3: Affordable Cloth Diapering For Multiple Children

Alhamdulilah baby is due any day now, and we have decided to go about using cloth diapers, as we have for our youngest son. This will be the first time we are using them from birth subhanAllah.

Cloth diapers, while can seem like a costly initial start, isn't so bad if you decide to use prefolds.


MashaAllah, with two children in cloth diapers, buying a lot of pocket diapers can be costly, if you do not have enough to make that investment but prefolds are at very good prices mashaAllah!! Whether new or used, you can find a good deal on a stash of prefolds.

Alhamdulilah as our son will soon be potty trained I'm loving that his old cloth diapers will go to the baby once he gets older.

With prefolds, we have about 7 covers so far that goes on top of the prefolds, mashaAllah you can see in the other pictures to see what three of the covers look like :)


Alhamdulilah we have been looking to try new homemade laundry detergent that will work for our diapers and other clothes, inshaAllah will share that one soon!!


My favorite person and place to buy diapers from is my friend Dalecia, of Love,d she sells natural, environmentally friendly family products. Love,d Etsy Store and Facebook Love,d Facebook
The cool thing about cloth diapering is that it does not have to be expensive alhamdulilah I am blessed to have friends send their diapers to me as well that they have not used, or they were used and really taken care of.

MashaAllah ever since we started using cloth diapers on Tahleel, we have saved a lot of money on diapers, they have been well worth it!

In the beginning we were using a washboard to clean them, and that was for about a year, it really got the diapers clean and then now we are washing them in a washing machine alhamdulilah mashaAllah.

So our cloth diapering journey continues, with using pockets and prefolds and saving money along the way while doing something for the environment. alhamdulilah!! Alright please make duaa!!

The adventure continues!

وتحفظوا على الأرض فإنها أمكم

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…
