Very inspirational - Ramadaan

Inshallah I will take full advantage of this!
Once Moosa (AS) asked Allah Ta'ala: O Allah ! You have granted me the honor and privilege of talking to you directly, Have you given this privilege to any other person? Allah Ta'ala replied, O Moosa during the last period I am going to send an ummat, who will be the Ummat of Mohammed (SAW) with dry lips, parched tongues, emaciated body with eyes sunken deep into their sockets, with livers dry and stomachs suffering the pangs of hunger- will call out to me (in dua) they will be much much closer to me than you O Moosa! while you speak to me there are 70000 veils between you and me but at the time of iftaar there will not be a single veil between me and the fasting Ummati of Mohammed (SAW).  O Moosa I have taken upon myself the responsibility that at the time of iftaar I will never refuse the dua of a fasting person!

Covering my Hair- interesting reading

1) When I Covered My Head, I Opened My MindAs a non-Muslim living in Western society, the idea of modesty was not exactly foremost in my mind. Like all other women of my generation and mind-set, I thought such ideas were antiquated and excessive.I felt pity for the poor Muslim woman who had to "wear all that junk," or "walk around in bed - sheets" as I used to call it I was a modern woman, educated and liberated. Little did I know the awful truth. I was more oppressed than any Muslim woman in the most culturally oppressive village in the Muslim world. I was oppressed not by an inability to choose my clothing or to choose my life-style, I was oppressed by an inability to see my society for what it really was. I was oppressed by the idea that a woman's beauty was public, and that lustful admiration was equal to respect. It was when Allah guided me to Islam, and I put on the hijab, that I was finally able to step out of the s…

How Allah blessed me this month

slms Allah blesses us in different ways..My latest blessing is my new work environment Allah has given me a complete revolution in my work evironment, Alhamdulliah. From a very difficult team and management where I was downright miserable to say the least, I feel like I have a new leash on life now! I have this wonderful manager who is so calm, understanding,cool , friendly, funny..etc etc, a senior manager who is non judgemnetal, non imposing, fresh, down to earth and has an absoultely brilliant mind and knows whats potting, Im part of  a bigger team who is playful, friendly, sooo easy to get along with and who completely gets me! we have so much fun at work Alhamdulillah, its sooo wonderful, I laugh so much at work! Allah had to show me the worst ever to appreciate this wonderful space.If I hadnt been through hell then I wouldnt keep thanking Him so much for this happiness :) This is how Allah has blessed me this month :) M4life

show offs!

slms ok. i hope i wasnt like this when i was an old hat in my previous job...this girl here really works on my nerves...bosses everyone around..atcs like she knows everything...but i must look deeper and see if it is that thats bothering me ..or that roles are reversed and im not the most experienced anymore...is that why im feeling iritated ?or is it uncomfortable with not being the most knowledeable? hmm.. well at least i can learn from her how NOT to be!  yeah, ill observe all her habits and  note what i dont want to be!! lol :) M4life

Affirmations- working!

Slms Im trying this new thing ...saying affirmations to myself all the time even if I dont quite feel like I mean it just yet, it will come in time So its gotta be present tense, positive, and continuous like this morning I kept saying " This is a good day", "All my work is getting done", "Everything that I do will have a magical sparkle to it" Alhamdulillah, in 2 hours I did more work that I would ordinarily do in maybe 1 day!! lol Allah is with me :) M4life

A nice saying...

Slms Im dying to share this ... "Dont let yesterdays negative thoughts affect tomorrows experiences" Louise L Hay Jummuah Mubarak :) M4life

Just be...

Oh why cant I be free? Why is it NOT ok to just be? Why cant we be alone, be crabby, be impossible, be unfair, be quiet, be feeling sorry for myself, be sad, be happy, be doing my own thing, be what i want, be bad, be doing whatever Why do we have to conform in society? Why do we have to always be smiling, be kind, be patient, be answering peoples questions, be talking,be pretending , be what they want us to be? I cant take it anymore! Oh Allah, please bless me with your everlasting Peace and Serenity and Power. Aameen

People who dont care

Salaams Dont you hate people who cruise through life....This one girl at work is so irresponsible and doesnot complete her work and then when theres a consequence like someone pitching for a meeting at the wrong time because she didnt inform them of the right time, she still has the nerve to walk around aimlessly and do other stuff instead of explaining herself to the person! I was so mad, I made sure that I didnt have to explain because really it wasnt my fault, but she took so long so i called her and told her to hurry up because the poor guy was waiting! So she finally explained but took no responsibility for standing him up  *hrrmph* :)

When friendship wanes....

Why is it that some people can decide when THEY want to give up on friendship and others must just accept it? Why is it ok for some people to say what they want and you must just understand and accept it? Thats not fair, Im not afraid of conflict or confrontation when necessary to understand and explain the situation. It hurts when this happens..but theres only one thing to do and that is to bring it on and face it head on Wish me luck!  :)
