Alhumdulillah, a few positive updates.
I accepted a proposal that came as quite a surprise but with much love!!!
This second one isn’t as exciting as the first, lol, but I also started a new job in a much calmer, saner, and healthier environment.
Subhan’Allah and Alhumdulillah, these two changes came so rapidly in my life that I felt I barely had a chance to breathe, but I could not be more thankful and happy. And in such a blessed month too!
What I feel is beyond words…
Surah Al-Kahf, Verse 109:
قُل لَّوْ كَانَ الْبَحْرُ مِدَادًا لِّكَلِمَاتِ رَبِّي لَنَفِدَ الْبَحْرُ قَبْلَ أَن تَنفَدَ كَلِمَاتُ رَبِّي وَلَوْ جِئْنَا بِمِثْلِهِ مَدَدًا
Say (O Muhammad SAW to mankind). “If the sea were ink for (writing) the Words of my Lord, surely, the sea would be exhausted before the Words of my Lord would be finished, even if we brought (another sea) like it for its aid.”
(English - Mohsin Khan)
Then can you imagine the weight and depth of my Lord’s words…
Ramadan Mubarak everyone! May we all experience its blessing this year, Ameen!
the night’s enchantment bears witness to the creation of my Lord’s beauty.
I need a championship shirt from the Spurs this year!
Surah Al-Ma’un *check*
Alhumdulillah : )
I love the mention of Dhul-Qarnayn in Surah Kahf. How he needs no other power, wealth, or tribute than what Allah swt has already given him. And having all this, he remains on the straight path and humble. Subhan’Allah!
It’s starts on Ayah 83. Don’t forget to read it today :)
We pour too much into people and then ask why we are empty.

Alhumdulillah, today’s esl book club was great! I’m tuckered out, but in a good, satisfied way!
We’re almost done reading A Walk to Remember, and the group can’t wait to watch the movie and compare the two! For that matter, neither can I!
I’m super thankful that this idea has really taken off, I already have a waiting list of people that want to join when we start our next book! Can’t wait!
Alhumdulillah, Alhumdulillah, Alhumdulillah!
"I swear, my soul, you shall proceed, for if you do not I shall force you to proceed! The people have gathered, the clamor has risen, but what makes you hesitate, oh soul? Do you not seek Jannah (Paradise)? And surely, what you have desired has eluded you for too long! For what are you, oh Rawahah, that you should treasure yourself so, a drop of fluid in a bag and no more!”
- Abdullah Ibn Rawahah (RA), hesitating and conquering his soul before going to certain death in the Battle of Mu’tah carrying the flag given by the Prophet Muhammad (SAW). This is Yasir Qadhi’s translation of Ibn Rawahah versifying his jihad against himself. Subhan’Allah!
*I only added a few words here and there to clarify the poetry as I best understood it.
