Hey guys! I thought it would be cool to do a little feature for each game in the quarterfinals of the World Cup. I'm planning to feature WC inspired outfits and maybe a little game-talk or prediction. Something for everyone sah!?
SOOO first game in the Quarterfinals will be on the 2nd of July InshaAllah
It will be Uruguay vs. Ghana
The Uruguay Outfit:
I'd break up the Blue with some nice accessories and a scarf in a different color :-)
And for Ghana:
You don't have to plaster yourself with flags or team slogans or compromise your modesty to support your group!
I think this will be a cool game to watch. Ghana is the last African team in the running and has a lot of heart, but Uruguay has got more experience at this level.

The last time I tried to talk about football/soccer, it didn't go over well. However now I am hoping that everyone is all psyched up about the World Cup so I will try again :-D
My Final 8 Predictions:
Paraguay/Japan (No idea... this one is a coin toss for me lol) Although I am rooting for Japan as the last Asian team in the running!
ESPANA! Por Siempre! :-D
Supporting any teams in particular?!?

As-salamu alaikum wa rahmatullah
Bismillah ar-rahman ar-raheem
SubhanAllah wa Alhamdulillah today is the one year anniversary of my conversion to Islam.
I look back and marvel at what I have learned and I am appalled at what I have forgotten, subhanAllah
I look forward and realize that I am one year closer to the The Day of Judgement and wish that I had done better during this time, astaghfirullah may Allah forgive us for wasting his precious gifts intentionally and unintentionally.
I am overjoyed to be a Muslimah. Overjoyed. Overcome. Verklemmt. Gobsmacked. Exhilarated. Euphoric. Rapturous. Jubilant. Just plain tickled pink.
But most of all I am grateful. Grateful to Allah subhana wa ta'ala, grateful to my friends, my teachers, and even my family. Alhamdulillah 3la kul shay'

I appreciate diversity............ But I do not appreciate vulgarity
I appreciate progress............ But I do not appreciate loss of morals
I appreciate free thinking..... But I do not appreciate hypocrisy
I appreciate free speech........ But I do not appreciate the government sanctioned hate that spews out of people's mouths and fingers and hearts
I appreciate charity............... But I do not appreciate those who do it for the sake of appearances
I appreciate education.......... But I do not appreciate teaching children warped views of their or other religions, cultures or values

Last year I wrote a post about the Heart Wheel Journal (read it here). Now they have an online version that you don't have to print out. You just point and click then start typing! It is quite nice, mashaAllah so go give it a try!
