Update of Fundraiser


By the Permission of Allah, and all the Praise and Thanks belong to Him, we were able to raise 800 Pounds mashaAllah. Thank you to everyone who participated, either with their hearts, their words, and/or their efforts.

I was so happy to be a part of this event and so very and deeply happy to be a Muslim subhanAllah.

We are still collecting funds for our brothers and sisters in Ghaza so if you are able, please do keep sending in your donations. Please donate any amount you wish, even just $1 or pound would add tremendously and as we all know, little by little surely makes a lot. I would remind sisters to please purify your intention first and to also ask forgiveness for yourself and others and ask for Allah’s acceptance before making your donation, no matter how small you view it, in the sight of Allah, it is great and in the sight of our sisters and brothers, it is invaluable subhanaAllah.

If you would like to donate, please send funds to ahjirasa@yahoo.co.uk (so long as you have a paypal (its free and very easy to set up mashaAllah), the money will go from your account to mine and will reach the brothers taking it on time inshallah.

I love the UK when it comes to the sheer number and diversity of events that happen for and in the Muslim community mashaAllah. Truly astounding and gift from Allah, and all Praise belongs to Him of course.

So there is a convoy (mini I think) that is leaving for Ghaza on the 20th of January and will be carrying a variety of goods, mostly clothing and medicine though inshaAllah. DH told me about it, I told some of my sisters here and voila, here’s our upcoming effort inshaAllah. All proceeds to Ghaza Convoy inshaAllah.

About Islamic Patience

And seek help through patience and prayer, and indeed, it is difficult except for the humbly submissive [to Allah ] 2:45

And whoever submits his face to Allah while he is a doer of good – then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold. And to Allah will be the outcome of [all] matters. 31:22


This is going to be short and sweet but it is a topic I’m going to revisit a few times this year (Hijri people, get a gripJ) inshaAllah.

As some of you may know, I was visited with some trials, some Fitna in the past few years, from losing my yet unborn baby to being separated from my husband by circumstances beyond both of our control Alhamdulillah, and by the Mercy of Allah, and His abundant Grace, we made it through and are back together mashaAllah and not only have added to our family in the interim (for Allah is Al Razzaq, Al Karim) but also are expecting another new addition soon inshaAllah Ta’ala.

In that time, I felt very alone even though I was surrounded by people I both love and respect, this I’m sure was partly by design from Allah, so I would lean upon Him, learn to trust Him further, turn to Him more completely, and realize (crystallize in my brain) that life and its happenings, are not within my realm of knowledge or ability to control, but in His. The other part, I’m sure was the Shaytan taking advantage of my weaknesses and short comings in myself and my Deen, to try and convert me to his way, the way of disobedience, or prideful disdain, of rejecting the authority of Allah, etc.

Allah is Merciful and He helped this unworthy servant of His, and made the statement ‘a trustworthy handhold’ (see Quran 31:22) a reality in my life, and showed me some of the meaning of being ‘humbly submissive’ (see Quran 2:45), of seeking help through patience and prayer, not ‘careful planning and preparing’.

I was able, after a lot of struggle and feeling like a fish out water, floundering for my next breath, to grasp (I hope and pray inshaAllah), the reality of what is truly before me, and that is nothing but Allah. He is Al Haq. He is the Truth. Either you worship Him and make it inshaAllah, or you don’t and don’t make it inshaAllah. There is nothing else. There is no success in Dunia life, how can there be when it is but a collection of atoms that we perceive as a whole through our 5 senses, which by the way, cannot distinguish truth from falsehood without relying upon the ‘brain/heart/soul’ that is within.

So today, as I sit here and prepare for my day inshaAllah, I want to remember that my Guide is Allah, my Provider is Allah, my Light is Allah, my Truth is Allah, I have only Allah and only by His Mercy and Grace, is anything at all possible. The entire existence of the entire universe is literarily within His Grasp and all I need to be is His humbly submissive servant.

TBC inshaAllah
