Hey Followers I am so sorry for this poor excuse of a blog!!! I can not believe that the last time I posted was at Eid al Fitr and now it is time for Eid al Adha!!! My apologies!!! I haven't had much to blog about, I guess I have bloggers block.
Well, while going through Face Book I came across a post were the person commented that she was told that she was not a good Muslim. She confessed to struggling with salah, hijab, her ego, but still being very new to Islam.  Can I just say, that really upset me!!! What right does anyone have to judge the other!!! As a convert I know I always try to surround myself with other Muslims I think to be very good in hopes that I will learn something from them.  I have never had a positive experience with anyone who has tried to give me advice harshly.  I have however, received knowledge and guidance from sisters who really care about my deen and not just trying to point out all my flaws.  I hope whoever said that to her was a sheikh or some type of scholar who is without flaws.  You know a quote that I always try remember when I am about to get out my judgment stick is "We hate in other what we hate in ourselves". Remembering that helps me keep myself in check before I go on a hunt to put someone down to raise myself up.  We have to all remember to deal gently with each other and really look at our intentions as to how and why we want to correct someone. Sorry for the rant...typos...and any crazy all over the place thoughts ....see ya next time....

Ramadan Mubarak

Ramadan Kareem Cuties!!!
May Allah(SWT) accept all our fast and answer our dua's. A friend of mine sent this to me and I wanted to share it becasue it totally got me in the mood for Ramadan.

The Sermon Given By The Prophet
(peace and blessings be upon him)
On The Last Friday Of Sha'ban
On The Reception Of The Month of Ramadhan

"Indeed ahead of you is the blessed month
of Allah. A month of blessing, mercy and
forgiveness. A month which with Allah is the
best of months. Its days, the best of days,
its nights, the best of nights, and its hours,
the best of hours. It is the month, which invites
you to be the guests of Allah and invites you
to be one of those near to Him. Each breath
you take glorifies him; your sleep is worship,
your deeds are accepted and your supplications
are answered. So, ask Allah, your Lord; to give
you a sound body and an enlightened heart so
you may be able to fast and recite his book,
for only he is unhappy who is devoid of Allah's
forgiveness during this great month."

"Remember the hunger and thirst of the day
of Qiyamah (Judgement) with your hunger and
thirst; give alms to the needy and poor, honor
your old, show kindness to the young ones,
maintain relations with your blood relations;
guard your tongues, close your eyes to that
which is not permissible for your sight, close
your ears to that which is forbidden to hear,
show compassion to the orphans of people so
compassion may be shown to your orphans. Repent
to Allah for your sins and raise your hands in
dua during these times, for they are the best
of times and Allah looks towards his creatures
with kindness, replying to them during the hours
and granting their needs if he is asked..."

"O People! Indeed your souls are dependent on
your deeds, free it with Istighfar (repentance)
lighten its loads by long prostrations; and
know that Allah swears by his might: That
there is no punishment for the one who prays and
prostrates and he shall have no fear of the fire
on the day when man stands before the Lord of
the worlds."

"O People! One who gives Iftaar to a fasting
person during this month will be like one who
has freed someone and his past sins will be
forgiven. Some of the people who were there then
asked the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon
him): "Not all of us are able to invite those
who are fasting?"

"The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him)
replied: "Allah gives this reward even if the
Iftaar (meal) is a drink of water."

"One who has good morals (Akhlaq) during this
month will be able to pass the 'Siraat'...on the
day that feet will slip... One who covers the
faults of others will benefit in that Allah
will curb His anger on the day of Judgement...
As for one who honors an orphan; Allah will honor
him on the day of judgement, And for the one
who spreads his kindness, Allah will spread
His mercy over him on the day of Judgement.
As for the one who cuts the ties of relation;
Allah will cut His mercy from him... "

"Who so ever performs a recommended prayer in
this month Allah will keep the fire of Hell away
from him... Whoever performs an obligatory
prayer Allah will reward him with seventy prayers
[worth] in this month."

"And who so ever prays a lot during this month
will have his load lightened on the day of
measure. He who recites one verse of the holy
Quran will be given the rewards of reciting the
whole Qur'an during other months."

"O People! Indeed during this month the doors of
heaven are open, therefore ask Allah not to close
them for you; the doors of hell are closed,
so ask Allah to keep them closed for you. During
this month Shaytan (Satan) is imprisoned so ask
your Lord not to let him have power over you."

All American Muslim

This is a new show airing Sunday November 13 at 10 PM on TLC network. (check your local listings for times) Will you be watching? I will definitely be watching, but one observation I notice so far is it seems to be mostly about Arab Muslim, which I really don't like.  I think all nationalities should be represented especially if the community is diverse.   I have never been to  Dearborn Michigan so I don't know what the majority of Muslims are, but I feel like every time I see a show about Muslims they are either about Indian or Pakistani Muslims or Arabs.  I just like seeing  a diverse mix so you can see what is really culture and what is Islam.  One thing I know for certain will happen in this show, is there will be criticism about how the people practice Islam  especially the women.  Well if you decide to watch leave a comment and let me know what you think.
