I finally got the time to open my reader today, after a complete week, to read through my favorite blogs. There are a lot of interesting posts out there, but I didn’t get around commenting. I’m lost in a different era, you see. But I’ll explain that later.
First, I would like to congratulate the lovely Umm Travis who recently finished level five in Arabic! MashaAllah. Keep up the good work! I’m so proud of you, Sis.
Also, I must say that I agree with Haleem on how if someone walks into the washroom to make wudhu, the entire washroom seems to have done wudhu with that person! There is absolutely no concern about saving precious water. I know of a woman in my office building who thinks it’s her birth right to flood the washroom floor each time she makes wudhu.
And I love how ‘liya wrote about taking her grandmother to the movies; the 70-year-old seems to be such an amazing woman, mashaAllah. I also loved her post on the best gift she had received this year. It’s a must-read for all you teachers out there.
Also, please make lots of dua for Smiley and her family, as they go through a very painful and tragic time of their lives. Her “We Live By His Grace” series has touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes.
I’ll be back blogging and posting pictures, inshaAllah, as soon as I return from the sixteenth century. There’s this second hand book (I love used books!) that I bought in Hyderabad: Magnificent Moghuls by Tikam Ramnani. I usually read before going to bed, but this one has me hooked! I bring this book everywhere I go. It was published in 1969, and I am lost in its old pages.
Oh, I must go now. Emperor Jehangir has just sent Prince Khurram to conquer the fort in Mewar from the brave Rajpoots.
