Spending too much time on entertainment is no doubt a bad thing–it’s basically wasting precious time. However, we all know as human beings, we will need some sort of entertainment sometimes. Watching a beneficial program, spending time talking with friends and family or reading a good book are all good ways to relax and entertain ourselves without over-doing it. While I don’t really have a “favorite” show, there are shows that I like to watch sometimes which are entertaining and also beneficial in some way. What I’m watching currently… One of the best shows/documentaries I came across last year is […]
First week of April is already gone! I can’t believe it. I’m not the only one who seems to be in shock about how fast time is flying by us these days, subhanalaah. Almost every day or every other day I hear someone mentioning something about how fast the time seems to be going. Just recently, I heard someone say “it’s like February and March didn’t even happen!” That’s exactly how I feel too. Any way, are you wondering yet why I’m going on and on about how fast time seems to be going by? As time goes or rather […]

Have you ever read an article or book or even watched a video and felt as though it was something that was written or made just for you? Subhanalaah, when I came across this article, I felt just that. I felt as if it was written for me because I can be a worrier sometimes. As parents, worrying about our children’s akhlaq, education and future is something we all do. But some us we can over worry which leads to stress and stress is definitely not good for anyone! In the article Mending the Crumbled Wall: Allah’s Promise to Protect your […]
With the digital age in full bloom, we are ever so busy withour smart phones, ipads, tablets, and laptops. When the house is nice and tidy, kids in bed and you finally have time to rest, what do you do? It’s time to check your Facebook, Google plus, Whatsapp, Twitter and whatever else social media there is! After checking all of that, then what? It’s time to get updated on what’s going on with the world so you head on over to Yahoo! or CNN or the New York times. I’ll be honest, I love browsing and reading interesting, funny […]
In every part of the world, people face challenges in their lives. Some people face financial instability, hunger and poverty; others face violence, natural disasters and homelessness. And then there are those who face health issues. In every country, the problems are different. In the “developed” countries, the majority of our problems are diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure and depression, just to name a few. Of course, those are not the only problems here; however, I feel like these problems are the ones affecting a lot of people. These health issues all probably have one thing in common: our food! Yes, […]
Why saying NO to our children is important.
Mother of three and author of An Islamic Perspective on Child-Rearing and Discipline, Um Saliha talked about the confusion there is between religion and culture when it comes to parenting. I think this article was written for a non-Muslim audience, however, I believe it can also serve as a great reminder to us Muslims as well about raising and disciplining our children according to the Quran and sunna and letting go of traditional or cultural practices that have no basis or importance in Islam. The article is beautifully written and not boring at all! I really enjoyed it and hope you […]
