Medicinal Homemaking

Alhamdulilah I have been taking my herbalist and aromatherapy classes.
Its been such a blessing to teach the child healthy alternatives to take care of yourself.
We have been making medicinal oils that have been really working for us, by His permission always!

One of the blessings in homemaking is that we are constantly learning and teaching our children. Pursuing knowledge should never stop because we have children... It should increase! How can our children learn and be passed down great traditions if we are not learning them first?
The children have been getting to know herbs and there benefits.

MashaAllah this is something we are doing as a family. He has blessed us with edible medicinal plants in our backyard alhamdulilah!

Our 6 yr old, made eucalyptus oil with me alhamdulilah and it was not only a learning experience but bonding too :)

Its part of our service to properly take care of our families alhamdulilah..  Sometimes that includes staying up long night with coughs, fevers, and dealing with cuts, bruises etc. He has truly given us many ways to give our family ease when they are not well!

 Our food is important... When cooking, dhikring.. Having positive thoughts and energy is important habit to have when making and serving food. You want to put love into it and His remembrance... Remember that we are nourishing bellies because He has blessed us to.  Feeding those in our care, food made with love and care.
 When cooking, we must remember that we are making sure our family is getting the best we can provide.

Homemaking is so much more than just clean, cook.. repeat. Its really about serving and getting close to our Creator and being in a state of gratitude! The higher purpose, and doing it all in the best healthy happy halal way.

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…
