Praying For Your Husband

Good morning world,

This morning I felt inspired to write a few words, in prayers that it will benefit you all out there. One of the best things we can do for our spouse is to pray for them.

What is so awesome about prayer, is that God understands what we are saying, knows what we want to say, and no matter if its aloud or deep within our heart... He knows, He understands and He hears us.

Even as a widow, one of the things I continuously do, is pray for my late husband (rahimahullah)

Pray:

Pray for God's guidance, husbands have a lot of decisions to make. Their role as the leader of the home is such an important role, that God's guidance is for sure needed. When praying for your husband, pray that God guides his decisions, his steps. As wives, one of your duties is to encourage him to pray too, gently remind him that with God, there is success. Every move we make, should be in a direction God is pleased with.

Pray for their health and safety- the world today is not the easiest place to deal with. Going out there daily, and earning a living can have its test. It is a blessing to have a husband walk in the house, after a hard day's work...safe. Pray for God's protection daily, for your whole family. Not just physical harm, even the unseen...and we can assist also by making sure our husband's are eating well and doing their best to be healthy in every area of their life (mental, physical etc)

Pray for your marriage
Some days it may feel like your husband does not understand you, and their might be communication issues, God understands every language and He can make us understand each other.  Asking God to guide your speech and give you the words to help your husband understand what you need is important to keep your relationship from becoming a relationship that is full of misunderstanding. Also asking God to help your spouse understand and communicate is a needed prayer. How many times have we argued with our spouse, because we misunderstood what was said? Also there is much temptation out there in the world, the opposite gender, places not of light and so on...falling into these matters can hurt a marriage. Keep your marriage strong and pray for God to keep you and your husband on safe ground.

Pray for his spiritual growth
A man who is not constantly striving to get closer to God, is a man that will have a harder time in his responsibilities. He can make the best decisions having prayed on it and has faith in God's word and plan. His spiritual growth also aids in your spiritual growth, some of my favorite memories is my husband teaching me after the prayer and the children too. I remember the days my husband would go sit with Shaykh Ninowy after jumuah prayer and I would be so excited for him, and myself, because I knew when he came home, he would teach me what the Shaykh taught him and the others. I would say, as soon as he came in the door  "as salamu alaykum sooooooo..." he would laugh and return my salams then he would be quiet... knowing I'm on the edge of my seat, and ready to hear what happened. After playing around with my anticipation, he would share the jewels he learned that day alhamdulilah
I now share what he has taught me, with the children, I remind them to say the duaas that my late husband taught them. What a blessing it is to have a husband who can teach you and cares about his families spiritual well being. These things I believe will benefit my late husband (rahimahullah) in the next life as well...

So you must pray often... pray for his connection with God, his guidance, his spiritual growth, his health, your marriage, and so on.

One of the best things we can do is pray for one another and assist them by doing what is good and what is helpful.

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…
