Uruguay vs. Ghana



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

I'd break up the Blue with some nice accessories and a scarf in a different color :-)

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.

Salat Al-Hajjah



I found this on sunnipath and thought it would be nice to share :-)

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful, and all blessings and peace upon our master Muhammad, his Folk, Companions and those who follow their noble way,

Abullah ibn Abi Awfa (Allah be pleased with him) relates that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “Whoever has a need with Allah, or with any human being, then let them perform ritual ablutions well and then pray two rakats. After that, let them praise Allah and send blessings on the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace). After this, let them say,

لا إِلَهَ إِلا اللَّهُ الْحَلِيمُ الْكَرِيمُ
سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِين
أَسْأَلُكَ مُوجِبَاتِ رَحْمَتِكَ وَعَزَائِمَ مَغْفِرَتِكَ وَالْغَنِيمَةَ مِنْ كُلِّ بِرٍّ وَالسَّلامَةَ مِنْ كُلّإِثْمٍ
لا تَدَعْ لِي ذَنْبًا إِلا غَفَرْتَهُ وَلا هَمًّا إِلا فَرَّجْتَهُ وَلا حَاجَةً هِيَ لَكَ رِضًا إِلا قَضَيْتَهَا يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ

There there no god but Allah the Clement and Wise.
There is no god but Allah the High and Mighty.
Glory be to Allah, Lord of the Tremendous Throne.
All praise is to Allah, Lord of the worlds.
I ask you (O Allah) everything that leads to your mercy, and your tremendous forgiveness, enrichment in all good, and freedom from all sin.
Do not leave a sin of mine (O Allah), except that you forgive it, nor any concern except that you create for it an opening, nor any need in which there is your good pleasure except that you fulfill it, O Most Merciful!”

[Related by Tirmidhi and Ibn Maja. The hadith has some weakness, but it is slight: such hadiths are acted upon for virtuous deeds (fada’il al-a`mal) by general agreement of Sunni scholarship]

The prayer of need is very simple: It is essentially to raise one's need to Allah Most High, by performing ritual ablution (wudu), praying 2 rakats (or four), and then making whole-hearted dua to Allah. If one uses the abovementioned Prophetic supplication, or other similar supplications transmitted from the Beloved Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace), it is best. [Ibrahim al-Halabi, Sharh Munyat al-Musalli; al-Fatawa al-Hindiyya; Ibn Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar]

The inward manners of supplication is exhibiting our neediness and absolute slavehood to Allah, consigning one's matters to Allah, and knowing that the only one who gives or benefits is Allah Most High. With this, one should be certain that Allah Most High answers our duas, but in the way He knows is best for us.

When circumstances do not permit us to pray 2 rakats, one should still turn to Allah in supplication, raising one’s needs to Him, for He answers our supplications and loves being asked.

And Allah alone gives success.

World Cup 2010


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?!?

One Year Again

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'
