The Daily Quote: Allahu Akbar

“Attackers in Paris and Mali shouted the phrase “Allahu akbar” before firing shots and killing people. “Allahu akbar” translates simply to “God is greater.” Muslims explain how misuse of the phrase has affected their lives in the U.S.

They discuss the media sensationalism, religious extremism, Donald Trump and fascism, and their cultural adjustments because of the backlash.”

The Daily Quote: You’re not a body. You have a body. You are a soul.

You’re not a body. You have a body. You are a soul.

Just a reminder
  • Your nose is the right shape.
  • Your skin is the right shade.
  • Your lips, hands and feet are the right size.
  • Your height is perfect and so is your natural hair color/texture.
  • Your voice and laugh are just right.

Whatever you dislike about your physical self is actually in your mind.

  • Fashion didn’t create you.
  • Western standards of beauty didn’t create you.
  • Your culture’s idea of physical attractiveness didn’t create you.

Allah created you and He doesn’t make mistakes. Let that sink in for a moment.

Acknowledge your body as what it is:

a present from your Creator that allows your soul to journey from one realm to another.

Practice gratefulness by taking good care of this gift that was entrusted to you.

  • Be as kind and merciful to it you as would be with an honorable guest.
  • Respect it.
  • Love it.
  • Compliment it.

Feed it with the right amount of healthy food and be active to keep it fit, strong and energized.

  • Get enough sleep.
  • Moisturize your skin.
  • Take care of your teeth, hair and nails.
  • Exercise your brain.

You’re not a body. You have a body. You are a soul.

Family

Second to my Faith, Family is the center of my life.

I am married to an amazing man that I have known for more than half of my life. Boy has it been a journey! We traveled throughout the United States together & have seen a lot of life’s difficulties together. Together we made it, Masha’allah. I am so grateful for the friend I have in my Husband.

Motherhood has been both the most challenging and rewarding part of my life, and I am exhausted and exhilarated all at the same time. 🙂
I wake up every day, grateful & humbled to be the Mother of two of the most amazing people I have ever known.
Alhamdulillah, I was granted both a daughter and a son, whom I love so very much. In my Journey to Islam, I shared the amazing miracle I experienced with my first child; my daughter. Lost & depressed, God really used her to pull me back to Him & restore my faith. ❤

In sha Allah, I will post photos soon.
