A home in Jannah.........

This world is not our home.
We are travelers in the wilderness of life
This world is just a guesthouse.
"Our Lord! Let not our hearts deviate (from the truth) after You have guided us, and grant us mercy from You. Truly, You are the Bestower." (Q3:8)

O my Lord, build for my children and me a home in Your presence in Jannat-ul-Firdaus.


leaving the past that hurts with the present that heals

All these while life teaches us lessons; learn to accept the lessons and our greatest disappointment will turn out to be our greatest blessings. It is good to leave the past that hurts with the present that heals. ‘Do not despair of the mercy of Allah’ (Q39:53). Thank you Allah for Your endless blessings.

finding serenity

'Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding. Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain. And could you keep your heart in wonder at the daily miracles of your life, your pain would not seem less wondrous than your joy; And you would accept the seasons of your heart, even as you have always accepted the seasons that pass over your fields. And you would watch with serenity through the winters of your grief.'-Kahlil Gibran

In Jordan......

With love from Jordan

The magnificent beauty in the wilderness of the holy land reflects God’s touch of mercy.The inspiring stories of the prophets and the companions kindle the aspiring moments of challenging life’s survival skills in this sacred land...
When our love for God is undigested the light fades; but when our love for God is digested the light shines even in the wilderness of life….

“Be empty of worrying.
Think of who created thought!
Why do you stay in prison
When the door is so wide open?
Escape the poison of your judges.
The sky will bow to your beauty, if you do.
Learn to light the candle. Rise with the sun.
Turn away from the cave of your sleeping.
That way a thorn expands to a rose.
Don't sit and wait. Get out there, feel life. Touch the sun and immerse in the sea.”-Rumi
