When I embraced Islam 6 years ago and decided that I could not learn my new faith in safety or wholly where I lived Allah opened doors for me to move to the other side of the world in Cairo, Egypt .. for this decision .. I have lost most of my family and many of those who said they were friends but subhan’allah .. Allah (swt) has given me a wonderful Muslim husband and NEW FAMILY who accepted me and who have been so patient in helping to teach me about my Deen .. alhamdulillah .. Allah has blessed me so much .. allah Akbar

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, a dear sister that I know just began wearing the hijab, and she is being tested by Allaah with it. Her manager first ridiculed her, then told her that since her 90 days isn’t up yet, they could fire her for any reason.

She called me crying saying that she was about to lose her job, and that she couldn’t afford that. I told her that she has forgotten who had given her the job in the first place- Allaah. That He is the provider, and that He will help her find a better job in’sha’Allaah. This is a just a test for her. A fw hours after I spoke to her, subhana’Allaah- Allaah gave me an idea, He found her a better job. I told her that I there was a job who would accept her as she was, and that she would have the weekends off…subhana’Allaah. Don’t give up on your religion…be strong Allaah will always find a way out for you!!! Have trust in Him!

I wanted to share this with you all, because many of us when we begin to practice we think no one will accept our new way, and that we will lose our friends, our jobs, etc. Don’t be a people pleaser, please Allaah first, and the rest will fall into place.

May Allaah help all of our sisters and brothers around the world who are trying to come closer to Allaah to be strong. Ameen. Ya Allaah may you help us be patient and persevere through the difficult times. Ameen.

a sister beginning her journey with hijab

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, it always excites me to hear about a sister beginning her journey with hijab.

Just to note for many sisters who aren’t aware of what proper hijab is, it’s the covering of the entire hair, neck, and chest. Hijab means wearing lose clothing so that your body shape is not visible.

Truly it is a test when we decide to put it on. For any sisters who want to wear it mentally prepare yourself for the test. People will make fun of you, they will joke about your past, they will tell you it doesn’t look good on you, and it is better to take it off. Know that all of their comments are from Shaytaan. Shaytaan will do whatever he can to make you remove it. However, we must be strong. We must remember Allaah is testing us to see if we are truly sincere in wearing the hijab or if we are just doing it for show and tell.

If we are sincere then in’sha’Allaah we will be patient when the test comes, and make massive du’aa to get through it. We will find new friends to be with who will support us, and not put us down.

And if our jobs make it tough for us, then we will look for better positions who will respect us as women and not as objects. Who will respect us for who we are and not what we look like. Who will respect us for our talent and not what our hair or body looks like.

Allaah tell us in the Qur’aan: “Verily, in the remembrance of Allaah do hearts find rest” (The Qur’aan Chapter 13: Verse 28)

Ya Allaah may you make it easy on all of the sisters who are coming to this path and journey for your sake only. Ameen. May you give them strength, patience and perseverance to keep it on for you alone. Ameen. May you make them a light, noor of who represent Islaam. Ameen! May you give them the best character and manners, and make them amongst the righteous whom you love. Ameen!!!

life isn’t about preaching life is about teaching with our actions

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, life isn’t about preaching life is about teaching with our actions…when we do what we want others to do then in’sha’Allaah we will be successful.

Truly there is no price on righteousness. Weather your rich or poor, you understand it. Weather your educated or ignorant you understand it. Weather your a child or an adult you understand it…..the problem is doing what is right and staying away from what is wrong…

One character that the majority of us need to work on is Not Lying anymore. We need to quit lying to our spouses, our parents, our children, our bosses, our friends, and family. We need to tell the truth even if it may be against us. Only then will we be successful…Ya Rabbe may you make us amongst the truthful! Ameen. Ya Rabbe may you make us amongst the Righteous! Ameen.
