When I Think Of You

It's All About HOPE!!!

When I Think Of You

 

From you I’ve learned

How to smile through the rain

To take the good with the bad

The peace along with the pain

 

In you I see

A beauty in your face

There’s a kindness in your smile

And a life so full of grace

 

The storms have come

You’ve met them all head on

Not one time did you back down

When others would turn and run

 

I see a strength

Like I’ve never seen before

Reaching down into your soul

Strength from deep within your core

 

Each day I look

I see patience in your eyes

Playing the cards you’ve been dealt

With the wisdom of the wise

 

From you I’ve learned

A peace just like a dove

And I’m praying that you know

Of my care and of my love

Striving Muslimah

THINGS TO BE AVOIDED DURING RAMADAN

1. Don’t sleep during the day and pray all night. By
doing this you are converting the day into night and
the night into day, which is not the purpose of
fasting.

2. Avoid being lazy and inactive during the day.

3. Don’t waste time playing games during the day.
Rather, please Allah by increasing in your worship of him.

4. Avoid having Iftar parties. Ramadan wasn’t meant to be a food extravaganza.

5. Don’t ask your wife to spend Ramadan in the Kitchen. Eat something light and quick – she isn’t Biryani woman.

6. Spend the last 10 days worshipping Allah rather
than trying to prepare for Eid! A day that is better
than a thousand months is in these last 10 days
You can’t afford to miss this.

7. Don’t stay awake the full night. Your body has a
right over you…
