Once Upon A Eid.... at the home of Team Rahim!

It's just so awesome inshaAllah gives us just what we need, when we need it.
And with Once Upon A Eid, the timing could not have been more perfect!
We were wondering about how we would decorate this year, and we were blessed with the opportunity to review these wonderful decorations from a beautiful online store called Once Upon A Eid! The website is here!

 It's so important that we get our children excited about the blessed month of Ramadan. Before decorating we talked about what Ramadan means and why it's so important.
The boys, my husband and I ..opened the box together and got super excited ! Wrapped beautifully, just enhanced our Ramadan decorating excitement mashaAllah alhamdulilah! I'm really thankful we were blessed with this opportunity to review such a great way to bring extra excitement in our home.

Why is decorating important?

1.) we are making memories
2.) getting the children involved at home
3.) showing them that because they aren't fasting, doesn't mean they can't take part in Ramadan 
4.) creating traditions that can be passed on
5.) and Ramadan is only once a year... Do it exciting, do it fun, and do it together

Lights, banners, decorations for many occasions mashaAllah! Take time to please support this wonderful sisters business and really, I'm thankful that this is available for us!

 We are doing more decorations alhamdulilah... Ramadan countdown to Eid, lanterns from the ceiling, balloons and hanging up our Ramadan artwork inshaAllah!

What are you doing to welcome Ramadan in your home?

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…
