Focusing on Him in Our Daily Homemaking

As salamu alaykum!

I feel so motivated and inspired to be back on the blog. Allah is so great and so merciful! We should constantly keep Him in the focus of our daily homemaking! InshaAllah here are a few ways we can do that!

1.) Read His Book
The Quran is full of motivation, inspiration and His message for how he wants us to live. Take time to read His words daily to maintain that connection and find the ease He says you will have with His remembrance.

2.) Read The Prophet's Sunnah
He salAllahu alayhi wa salam is beloved to Allah. What did he do in his life that we can implement in our daily lives, to help keep our hearts and minds on Allah. Fasting, making the night prayer... Praying for our families, communities, and remember a virtuous quality in homemaking is being in constant prayer, so the night time prayer is a peaceful time to focus on Him.

3.) Dhikr as you work-
Make more effort to include more words, praising and glorifying Him! It can't hurt to add more SubhanAllah's Alhamdulilah's  in your daily speech... Remembering all glory and praise belongs to Him! He has truly blessed you. Food to eat, clothes on your back, screaming baby holding your leg yes... All worth praising Him about!

4.) When you speak and act consider what Allah would want -
Will He be pleased with what you're saying and doing? Our words and actions should be what He will be pleased with. This will help us in our daily conversations and dealings of the house. He doesn't want us to argue, use foul language, and neglect our blessings.



5.) Remember You are serving!
Yes yes yes!!! service is an awesome thing! You are being used to help His creation! You can't tell me that its not a big deal! How are you serving ? Our life is about service! We are nurturing, teaching, leading by example, by His permission healing (hearts and boo-boos) , feeding, and it's all amazing! Alhamdulilah you 're here with a purpose! He has entrusted you with precious gifts. Take care of them and do all you can gain more blessings daily. Remember there will be a day where we all wish we could have done more!

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…
