There Is a Place for Medication

When I was six months pregnant, I attended a birthing preparation class with my husband and about twelve other expectant parents. During the fifth session, the instructor asked the mothers whether or not they were going to use medication to get through the pain of childbirth labor. “Everyone who wants to try for a natural…



If I had a wish, it would be this
that all Allah’s people would be just like him,
able to cope, trust and just get along.
And not wonder if someone’s doing them wrong.
If we just put our trust in Him,
then we could surely enter in, and enjoy what life
has to offer. Instead of trying to hate on your
sister or brother. Yes, life would be so sweet,
if we just stop trying to compete, for what’s already been
promised. Life everlasting and peace of mind.
So, get it together and claim your prize,
for I truly want to get what’s mine.

Scrambled eggs with fresh chives and salmon, one of my favourite all time sunday breakfasts

Scrambled eggs with fresh chives and salmon, one of my favourite all time sunday breakfasts

i have used soya margarine in this recipe becasue in islamic medicine the combination of fish and diary is considered toxic…interestingly when i was living in roma , the romans frowned on me when i put paremesan cheese on fishy pasta dishes…now i know not to do it!

ingredients per person

2 eggs per person
1 teaspoon of soya butter
125ml of soya milk
1 dessert spoon ofchopped fresh chives or 1 teaspoon of dry chives
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper

1 large slice of spoke salmon or equivalent


1.Lightly whisk the eggs, salt, pepper, chives and milk together until all the ingredients are just combined and the mixture has one consistency.
2.Heat a small non-stick frying pan for a minute or so, then add the margarine and let it melt. Don’t allow the butter to brown or it will discolour the eggs. Pour in the egg mixture and let it sit, without stirring, for 20 seconds. Stir with a wooden spoon, lifting and folding it over from the bottom of the pan. Let it sit for another 10 seconds then stir and fold again.
3.Repeat until the eggs are softly set and slightly runny in places, then remove from the heat and leave for a few seconds to finish cooking. Give a final stir and serve the velvety scramble without delay.
4. serve with fresh smoked salmon

Getting the best results

Always use a non-stick pan with a wooden spoon/spatula for best results and easy cleaning. do not over cook,the eggs should have the texture of soft curds. It’s best not to cook more than three portions in one go as you will overcrowd the pan and the eggs won’t cook as well. For larger numbers, cook in two pans rather than one.

you can add cooked mushrooms, fry them first or even dates, yes chopped dates, inshallah i’ll upload that another day, an egytian family taught me a long time ago before i converted to islam….so enticing


Dearest Heart

Dearest Heart,
You are closer to me than my own two sides, a Divinely apportioned piece of my very existence, sometimes dark and sometimes alight. You’re with me everywhere I go, a fixed companion, running so deep that sometimes I don’t know where you end and I begin. You can be a seat of spiritual happiness for the one who possesses you; brimming with a light no other vessel can contain, seeing beyond seeing.
And at other times – and in truth, that’s most of the time with me, dear Heart – you can be the very opposite. At those times, you are the hardest company for me to keep.
Bit by bit it started, all by my own doing: weaknesses and heedlessness, blind indulgence and conscious ignorance; brazenly sinning while turning a blind eye to the spiritual illnesses developing within. One sin after another I committed, until you became almost unrecognizable beneath the layers of darkness building up inside. And I kept committing sins even when the pleasure was gone, just because the habit was so deeply fixed. Even when the sweetness became bitter, and the initial charm of the deeds I was committing became stale and repugnant, I continued, seeking to dull the ever-growing pain inside without too much introspection. “A cup I drank to taste its pleasure, and then another to chase its pain.”
I filled you with all manners of worldly things, but the aching and emptiness would not abate. Somehow, I deluded myself into thinking that the wounds would heal by these methods, and that the inner damage – self-inflicted – would somehow come to be repaired on its own. And I forced myself not to care. I lost something so precious when I lost you, dear Heart, beneath the darkness of sins and the choking hold of worldly attachments. I was a tightly closed shell whose pearl had somehow slipped away.
I found myself with pain running so deep, habits so ingrained, a path so steep before me… and heart-less, in the truest meaning of that word. It was hard for me to see a way to turn back.  But it’s there: I’ve found it, and it’s time.
Dearest Heart,
I’ve come to realize my absolute need for Allah (swt), down to my very core, and to see where I’ve gone wrong. How foolish to think that a spiritual vessel like you would be satisfied with less than His remembrance. You have taught me the truth of my existence: that without connection to Him, without the happiness of knowing Him and being true to Him, one will feel a painful emptiness, a sorrow, that cannot be filled with anything else.
I’m ready to strip away empty promises and convoluted excuses. I want to walk on this path upright, penitent, aware of my faults but constantly seeking a way back to Him. I need you with me dear Heart, and I pray it’s not too late. I’ll try my best to heal your wounds, and scrub away to your polished core, by His permission, through worship, His remembrance, and His aid. The path ahead is not an easy one and I know I’ll make mistakes, but I hope you’ll keep my company as we travel this road, the road of repentance, together. I will do right by you, God-willing, and you in turn, I pray, will help me reach His nearness.

Ya ALLAH, give us eyes that see the best in people
Ä heart that forgives the worst
Ä mind that forgets the bad
Ä soul that never loses faith
Ya ALLAH Master of all Creation,
Forgive us all for our sins,
and guide us to the right path.
The path of your chosen ones.
Bless the Muslim Ummah and have mercy upon us.

Ameen Ya ALLAH
