Time for a Survey…

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamu Alaikum.

Yes, it’s time for a survey.

I’ve had polls in the past as well as feedback forms. This time it’s a 10 question survey about Islam and YOU.

Why am I asking these questions?

Well, in order to answer that, I need to start from the beginning.

I’ve spoken to a lot of sisters in the past, alhamdulillah. Many of them tell me their issues.

Today, I spoke to a couple more and I have definitely noticed a pattern.

So, I thought I would ask all of you to take a survey because:

1) I would like to see if there really is a pattern.

2) Your input is anonymous. I won’t know who you are (unless I already know who you are and you write so many details that I figure it out!)

3) I’d like to hear from the brothers as well.

I would really appreciate it if you could participate in the survey.

However, the poll is rather personal, so if you don’t feel comfortable answering such questions, I understand.

I’m planning to go through all your answers and prepare a series of posts that answer any issues you might have, insha-Allah.

Here’s the survey:

Please be honest.

Jazakumullahu kheira for your help.

PS. You may send this survey link to anyone you wish. Perhaps they might want to take part, insha-Allah.


Three steps that will help us to prepare for Ramadan…

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamu Alaikum.

Yes, less than four months to go for the Big Event.

How can we prepare?

Well, I would suggest the following:




We all dream of having an ideal Ramadan preparation (along with an ideal Ramadan, of course). The operative word here is “dream”.

Then when the time comes to prepare for it we say “Insha-Allah, we’ll see” or “Not at the moment because I have too much to do.”

In fact, many of us plan but very few of us actually get around to executing the plan.

So when are we* going to get around to preparing for Ramadan?

[We = those like me who haven’t started yet.]

Let’s just start, insha-Allah!

PS. We could finally start implementing the plans of Ramadan Preps past…


A Summary of….Life?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamu Alaikum.

[Note: Please read this post with an open mind, otherwise you’ll hate it. The style is different from all my previous posts. Then again, perhaps it isn’t. However, as with all my posts, if you find that I have written something wrong, then please do point it out.]

So, one hits puberty and life begins:

Seriously Short Reminder No. 26: Don’t let the wolves eat you up…

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamu Alaikum.

“What wolves?”

These two:

ما ذئبان جائعان أرسلا في غنم ، بأفسد لها من حرص المرء على المال والشرف ، لدينه

Ibn Kab ibn Malik Al-Ansari narrated from his father (radiallahu anhu) that the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam): “Two hungry wolves let loose among sheep are not more harmful than a person craving after wealth and status, is to his Deen (Religion).” [Sunan At-Tirmidhi, Hadeeth No. 2376. Graded “sahih” by Al-Albani in Sahih Sunan At-Tirmidhi, Hadeeth No. 2376]

“Nobody appreciates me”

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamu Alaikum.

Ah yes.

We try, try and try, yet nobody seems to appreciate us.

However, that’s not the real problem.

“Oh, so what’s the real problem?”

The real problem is we want them to appreciate us.

And that’s the dangerous part.
