Eid mubarak: ’17 edition 

A very warm Eid Mubarak to all of our Muslim friends and family around the world.

May the Almighty accept all of your efforts and attempts in the holy month of Ramadan that has just passed and may all the little changes made become permanent insha’allah (if he wills) aaameen.
May we get awarded the opportunity to see this month again, by the permission and the will of the almighty. 

Whilst this will be the first year without my sister and my nieces, we will try to make the most of it inshallah. 

All the way in China ❤️

Hoping that your day is filled with love, light, happiness, peace and joy.

Ramadan mubarak #2017


A very very heart warming Ramadan Mubarak to all my friends and my family, both near and far. 

If you know me, you know I really look forward to this auspicious month. I always say, that not eating and drinking for those so many hours is actually the easy part. 

Tackling our bad habits, refraining from anger and remaining humble and calm even when all you wanna do is break someone’s arm… that’s the hard part. 

You know it’s not easy being Muslim these days, with the wrong perceptions of the faith always being portrayed ,compliments of westernized media, it’s very difficult to let people see the beauty. I mean, a month where , no matter how rich or poor you are, what colour or whatever your creed is… you get to feel what those who don’t have, feel. The obligation is exactly same for everyone. It’s absolutely beautiful.

So whilst we prepare to take on this month, may the attempts we make to better our character remain with us, even when this month is done. 

If you don’t know this significance of this month, you’re welcome to click Here. Or you’re welcome to pop a question in the comments below and I will best answer. 

This is the first year without my sister or my nieces as they’re in 🇨🇳 nonetheless we will make the most of it.

As we say, Ramadan mubarak ♥️

May peace and blessings be upon you all.

From Lu_ my best friend in law and one of my besties 

I think my 2017 best wishes needed to be done personally so here I go……..I remember the first time I met you, I was so intimidated by your beauty and brains. You had a soft side to you that iv never seen in anyone but at the same time I saw a steong person in you. Yes we have had our ups and down and we probably will still have our pity fights lol. But I don’t regret the day I met you foe anything. Thank you for understanding me, iv met so many ppl in my life that just don’t get me and you do!. Thank you for being there for me. Sometimes it might have seemed little to you but to me it meant a hole lot. I hold you very dear to my heart not just because you’ve been there for me but because you inspire me, you motivate me, you light up something in me I never knew I had. They say surround yourself with people who inspire you and you will be inspired and sure enough you have done that. You gave me a mom and dad as well, il never ever forget how they were there for us in newlands when we had no one. (Ay the tears are coming). This message is so long overdue!!!!! You are such an amazing women tazz I tell you that all the time but I need you to understand it. I love you from the bottom of my heart and when I thank God for what his blessed me with at night I now add you in my list of thanks. May 2017 be the best year of your life. Here’s to more fun times, here’s to more girls nights, here to us celebrating each others achievements, here’s to you finding someone who love you unconditionally the way you love everyone around you. You deserve all that life has to offer. I look forward to the best of friendship still to come😘😘😘😘😘
