As a child, I was blessed to grow up around a remarkable human being by the name of Ale Nabi. He was one of my father’s closest friends and someone who I came to embrace just like an uncle. What was remarkable about him was not the status or wealth that he came from, but the nobility and content of his character. As a professor of English he was always admired by his students. As a husband and father of three, he was always loved by his family. As a friend of many, he was always known for his kindness and generosity. He was constant in his devotion to God, through times of ease and difficulty.
Three years ago, Ale Nabi returned to his Lord and Creator after a long and difficult battle with Alzheimer’s. A couple of weeks ago, I finally had the chance to visit his family in Canada and to visit his grave, to bid him farewell in person. As I stood there in prayer at Ale Nabi uncle’s gravesite under the cold rain, what struck me the most was that his grave was completely unmarked — no name, no dates, no lasting words, nothing. Yet, the feeling of angelic presence around his grave was so powerful and overwhelming. It was a reminder that our true legacy as human beings is not found in what is inscribed on our tombstones when we die, but, rather, in the way that we live life and in the way we make a difference in the lives of people around us.

How much do you know about the Postpartum Part of A Woman’s Life?
As the saying goes…”There are some things better left unsaid,” however in most cases knowing what to expect can help ease some of the fears and anxieties we feel when placed in a situation much like ‘the postpartum period.’
Are certain topics taboo or just too embarrassing to discuss? I guess no one in the group wants to be the one to start a conversation off on the topic of hemorrhoids!?
For example…who knew that something as routine as going to the bathroom could turn out to be the most terrifying thing one attempts after giving birth? For most of us this can be a very daunting task especially if you’ve just had a vaginal delivery and have had to undergostitches and perhaps experienced some bruising, you’re probably worried sick that if you push anything else out right now you’ll do some major damage!
To help ‘ease’ the situation be sure to drink lots of fluids and incorporate fiber rich foods into your diet. Which leads up to my next taboo topic…hemorrhoids!
Some women develop hemorrhoids either during their pregnancy or at birth. Hemorrhoids are simply blood vessels that have become swollen; symptoms can range from mild to the more painful. Hemorrhoids typically go away on their own and sometimes with a little help.

Okay, seriously, whats wrong with kids. Shouldn’t they be doing something with their lives..but i did laugh at 1;18-1:23. Either way STUPID.
Alhamduillah we interact with many people throughout the day, but it seems like we are hardest on our own children, our own family, and our own sisters in Islam. We offer a critical eye rather than an empathetic shoulder to lean upon. We might see a sister wearing a hijab in a style that does not fit our personal approval or understanding of Islam, discounting that she is taking steps to cover in a society that chastises women for being modest. We might see our children investing their time in a colorful art project, and hone in on the glue leaking from the corners. We complain our kids are not completing tasks in a way that measures up to our expectations. We might shun sisters that are struggling to learn the tenets of Islam, or distance ourselves from those that are tested with difficulties of life. Ultimately we need to ask ourselves, are we really being compassionate sisters for the sake of Allah? To read in full click below.
Absolutely Amazing! Most Peaceful Slaughtering Method
Okay. Whenever Eid comes around, as I would like to call it Choti Eid, i always get sad that my family has to sacrifice animals. I’ve seen it happen, and it breaks my heart, but I know that it is because God commanded it. I came across this video which is STUNNING. i mean seriously though, if this doesn’t make you understand that islam is a peaceful religion, then you need to get your brain checked forreal forreal. It almost is like a miracle, you have to watch it especially at 4:50. You should however watch the whole video and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE SHARE IT, AND SHOW THE MALES IN YOUR FAMILY. You have to do this right!
Cheesecake Factory Cheesecakes & Pork ( Beef Gelatin)
Wow Wow Wow, WHO KNEW?! I found Mr. Sameer on Twitter, please follow him @SameersEats He posted up this letter he sent to Cheesecake Factory asking about what is in the cheesecakes! And i am shocked to see the results. Hope this helps people!
It’s so nice to hear from you again. Thank you for your continued interest in The Cheesecake Factory! To answer your question, several of our cheesecakes do contain animal gelatin. The majority of those use beef gelatin, however two varieties do contain pork gelatin: our 30th Anniversary Chocolate Cake Cheesecake and our Lemoncello Cream Torte.
As with most high end pastries and desserts, we have chosen products containing gelatin over products containing a host of gums and artificial additives. Gelatin is not added directly to any of our desserts, rather it is a sub ingredient in one of the essential ingredients in these cakes. The amount would be considered trace.
We continue to search for and test ingredients that contain neither, however at this time a suitable substitution has not been found. In the interim, I have provided a list below for our cakes which do contain animal gelatin. I hope that this information is helpful and will allow you to continue to enjoy our wonderful desserts.

Who wouldn’t want shade.
”Allah (SWT) would say on the Day of Judgement:
Where are those who love each other for the sake of My glory? Today I will shelter them with My shade, as there is no shade today except My shade.”

Angels at the masjid.
Abu Hurayrah, “the Prophet (saw) said, “When Friday comes, the angels stand at the door of the mosque and write down who comes first When the Imaam comes out, they close their records and sit down to listen to the dhikr.”" [Bukhari 2/284, Hadith no. 799 & Muslim]
