Monday Blessings #6: Sisterhood

Assalaamu Alaikum sisters!

My number one blessing: sisterhood! xx

Wanna know what I'm talking about and why. Check out Dear Little Auntie's 'You've Got Mail :D' Here's a poem I wrote inspired by them:

Stand Up

Stand up
and be the person you want to see,
stand up
and be the person you want to be,
no more waiting
just stand up and walk.

You'll meet sisters along the way
ready to help
give you a hand
pull you forward, push you on

Yet take your time,
your own pace
to each decision

Just know
Allah is here and ready.

Monday Blessings #5: A Big Thanks!

Hello readers,

Thanks SisWhoSmiles and Zara for the best online birthday wishes!! You are two people I would LOVE to meet (:

Usually you would get to read a poem from me, but recently I've lost my touch to find inspiration anywhere. Insha'Allah, though, I'll have it back.

For now, a poem by Zara dedicated to me as part of her special b-day message to me:

A beautiful sister who writes such beautiful poetry,
Just through her words opens the beauty of her heart,
It unfolds the messages, the meanings, And simplicity of her mind,
One can not compare the thoughts that appear so kind.

She unravels the importance of her life-
Through signficant meanings of Islam,
Each word touches the readers soul,
Forever there for the world to unfold.

Thanks again!! ((:

Exclusive: B-day Blessings

Hello readers,

Yes, it's my birthday! This girl is finally 18 :-) That means I edited my accomplish list. Did I do them or not? What else do I have in mind? Btw this will be Monday's Blessings on a Friday. That's partly why it's exclusive. :-)

For now, 18 things I'm thankful for:

1. Going on Facebook and seeing so many 'happy birthdays!'

2. Going shopping and actually getting more than one thing!

3. After so long, I finally went to our Friday khutbah and got to see people I haven't seen in a while.

4. Having the family I do, even if we don't get along, there are those special moments.

5. The ability to the happiness and light around me, and get it into me, no matter the mood.

6. My smiles and the fact it's what everyone loves at first sight :))

7. I'm finally seeing/ making the changes I need as a Muslim and a healthy eater.

8. The friendships I have had for so long is still strong.

9. For the way Allah has made my friends, for me to look up to.

10. The making of new friends.

11. I can't forget the teachers that have helped me to where I am now.

12. Also, my cats. They are my therapy; being able to feel their soft fur and feel them sniffing me when I'm in my sadness.

13. My writing... it has taken me far in looking in a new light, appreciating what Allah has given me, and being published!!

14. My blog... after working so hard and being patient I have enough loving readers and 4 awards under 6 months, masha'allah!!

15. For always learning! May my poetry reflect that.

16. For being me, even though I have a disability I'm strong and have a talent to cover it, alhamdulillah!

17. For living in a country that's doing well, that lets me wear hijab.

18. Last, but not least... I'm blessed for what will come because it's all from Allah and he gives what I need not want, alhamdulillah! :)

Love, Fida
