Sisters, this is just a reminder to make the most of these ten days of dhul-hijjah with your sons, daughters, and husbands and fast on the 9th day and give in sadaqah as these days are blessed and ajer for these days is multiplied subhanAllah. It is rahmah (mercy) from Allah subhana wa t’ala.

So at our newest Islamic center, although they have a greenhouse in the back, we cannot use it. Apparently, it is a really dangerous place to be that has yet to be cleaned up mashaAllah. Shattered glass and mangled metal and overgrown weeds (alhamdulillah this all took place before our community bought the building). Anyway, after talking to the sister in the office of the center, it has been decided that ds and I will have our own garden out front alhamdulillah! This will be a great chance to teach muhammad the importance of being ‘green’, the creation of Allah swt, botany and so fourth mashaAllah… InshaAllah this weekend we find out exactly were the garden will be, what will be in it inshaAllah, etc. I am anxious to find out, so I will keep you updated!
update: alhamdulillah, I finally have a photo of the greenhouse, here it is…
Asalaamu alaikum ramahtullah wa barakatu,
So, alhamdulillah, I think my son is almost finished with memorizing soorah al-kawthar. InshaAllah that will soon be crossed off our list and we can move on insha’Allah.
As I sit here, I am watching the yemen ftr channel. There are these yemeni girls putting on a play, displaying their traditional dances… how I miss that mashaAllah! Not so much the dancing but the sisters there and my husbands’ family and the air… yes, even the air is different subhanAllah. The people are different there mashaAllah… they have such a different life, so simple… anyway, I miss it. Not so much the politics though. Those Im sure everyone would be better off without. The sisters from Yemen know what I mean. There is soo much that needs to be done there inshaAllah, so many opportunities for sadaqah and ajer. InshaAllah one day…
salaam alaikum ramahtullah wa barakatu (Al Jazeera report is here)
Quick points: Women of Yemen have the lowest birth weight newborns in the world
1 in 3 people in Yemen are malnourished, living in poverty
Poverty increased 25% since 2006 alone.
It is going through triple F crisis-rising food prices,falling feul revenues & the countrys financial crisis
We need to help our sisters and brothers in Yemen insha’Allah… is it not haram to sit back and watch your sister not able to feed her daughters and sons while we sit and not give a second passing thought to all we have? If you have nothing to give, not even half a date, you will get reward for your intention and dua’a…
