As-salamu alaikum (Peace be upon you).

I don’t know when life got so busy (or I just got lazy) that I stopped reading…

Just picked up Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress.

Eid Mubarak everyone! I hope you had a blessed and beautiful Eid, and kept our brothers and sisters from around the world in your prayers :)

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)

via iQuran

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 beauty of Sujood is, you whisper down on Earth and its Heard up in the Heavens.

This is beautiful, Masha Allah.

the night’s enchantment bears witness to the creation of my Lord’s beauty.

I need a championship shirt from the Spurs this year!

A gift from one of my ESL students! She knows me so well :)


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 just got a bunch of books in and these are the two I wanna read. Can’t wait to get my hands on them…
soon my pretties!

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!
