It’s that time again 😀🎂😊🎉

Slamaat to my father on his 54th birthday (Allah shukr) 


He is the one man that I know, who will love me and my family unconditionally, he will never give up on me, he will always encourage me towards prayer and doing the right thing. He will fight with and for me, and nothing’s ever too much to ask of him. Till this day, we can have heart to hearts about life, prayer, God, soccer, weed and even break ups. We can roll together coz hes cool like that. 

I often get asked who is my favourite soccer player of all times… no guessing lol, because it’s him! 

My father, like any human being is flawed. But if anybody knows him and has seen the journey he’s been on… there’s no way they can ever say or doubt that he’s come along way in his faith. 

Dad, my wish for you, as always , is for the almighty to keep you steadfast on your deen. May his favour, mercy, Rahma, noor and wisdom be upon you always. May you continue to grow in your faith, learning to read Arabic and the Quran inshallah Aaameen 

We are blessed to have you dad and if ever Allah the Allah blesses me with a life-time partner, I pray that he has the quality and love for the deen as you have.

Whilst birthdays aren’t your thing. I hope you have a super amazing day. Love you OG

Today I forgive myself.


*picture is courtesy of pintrest*

I forgive myself for the mistakes made, the situations I could have handled better. I the hurts I may have caused and for my flaws.

I am human. And these things are bound to happen. Before I can forgive others, I’m starting with forgiving with myself.

The Issa birthliuoyday boyyyy: 21st edition 

My brother is living proof that unconditional love exists. He is the one person that I can hate, love, fight with and defend all at the same time. 🙄🙈he drives me batty!

But, today he celebrates his 21st birthday and I felt obliged to write a small tribute to him.

Issy, 21 years ago you came into this world…this absolutely adorable little boy, arriving home in his lime coloureds clothes, white as snow and black black hair if I remember correctly… but then? You turned into the thorn amongst the 🥀👿

Growing up with you was so much fun. You being the only boy in the house at the time, and being the baby…aaah pure bliss. 😈

I’ve watched you grow and do all the things boy’s do. And then, when you got older, I started worrying because school started being a struggle for you. 

Fast forward a few years later… and you stand as an extremely talented 👨‍🍳 chef! You will never know just how proud I am of you. It hardly shows at times because 5seconds after I commend you, you make me regret saying every nice thing I’ve ever said to you… what can I say, sigh sibling love. 😏

Whilst I feel you still have TONS of growing up to do ( I wouldn’t be deemed a true older sister if I didn’t through shade) know that I am extremely proud of all your achievements despite some of the battles you’ve faced.

And on this day, I wish you nothing more that all the success in the world. I make dua that you continue working hard and striving towards your dreams. I make dua that you never forget your creator, family and friends who have always been there for you. May Allah’s mercy, bountiful blessings and favour be upon you always. May Allah protect from the viciousness out there and may he calm your heart through every ordeal you may face, inshallah aaameen.

Happy 21st birthday boytjie. It’s time for you to grow up now and start making your bed hehehehehe (more shade) 

Love you tons smilo 

Love, light and some shade from just an ordinary big sis.

We are all flawed. And no person should make you feel bad about it… lf they can’t accept you at your worst, they sure as hell don’t deserve you at your best! 

I deserve love. Compassion and empathy.
