It speaks of the Day of Judgement, fates of the disbelievers and the believers, and the mercy of God.

Summarizing the entire chapter would be

Men v/s relationships

Uncategorized

Today I want to address an issue that has brought worry upon my future, why men rush relationships. Why is it that they are in a hurry for relationships as long as it’s a girl without taking into account the girl’s background, religion, lifestyle, ethnicity, job…etc? As a woman, I can tell you that almost every girl/woman out there understands that her love, support system and lifestyle has to change depending on her husband’s lifestyle, job, and family traditions.

Marrying a diplomat for example, a girl knows to change how she converses in public, she knows most of the time he will be buried in work, his availability won’t be frequent at home, she knows rumors will be spread and so on. Then why don’t men understand marrying a working girl is also different? That marrying an accountant is not the same as an engineer, or a staying at home girl? How do men expect a full time housewife to act like those perfect housewives in advertisement, all smiles, prepares food, cleans, and always dressed up without wiping off the smile? Are we ornaments? A rare flower to be a decoration in someone’s house, well even a flower dies if you forget to cherish it.

Back to working wives, men need to take into consideration that work is still work, I will have late nights as you, I will have bad days as you, and I don’t want to mess up my presentation too! So when you expect us to be understanding of your situation, we do too. We want someone who knows how to love different. Am not saying the amount or quality of love should vary, just let it be different, the jokes, gestures, compliments. You shouldn’t expect your same way of loving to work on a photographer, a doctor, or a housewife.

This goes to both parties involved, equal understanding , commitment, patience, support, care….and the list goes on.

In the name of God, the infinitely Compassionate and Merciful.
Praise be to God, Lord of all the worlds.
The Compassionate, the Merciful. Ruler on the Day of Reckoning.
You alone do we worship, and You alone do we ask for help.
Guide us on the straight path,
the path of those who have received your grace;
not the path of those who have brought down wrath, nor of those who wander astray.
Amen.

The one Surah that all Muslims know by heart

Fruits, Mountains and Cities

branchFrom childhood we’re taught to read the Qur’an, in its original Arabic. It’s a given that Muslim kids all over the world can read and perhaps even write in Arabic. However, how many understand what they read ? We’re trained to read the chapters and commit them to memory, not enough emphasis though is inserted into learning the meanings of these holy chapters, which is the whole purpose of the Qur’an. To read, decipher and understand the message from

It’s of no surprise being a Muslim female in her twenties that the subject of marriage crosses mine and millions of others minds ever so often. When will it happen, how will it happen, with whom? We are always wondering but will never know until it finally happens.

With whom, that’s the million dollar question. I’m not a hopeless romantic who envisions a tall, dark stranger who will come and sweep me of my feet, I do however have

Fajr prayer does not matter now; it will matter tomorrow. Right now, you are extremely tired and you can’t even stand, let alone
