(picture's source)

I missed fajr again today :( Something bad has to always happen in my day when fajr is missed! SubhanAllah.. Forgive me ya Allah!

It's pretty scary how we understand & yet.. And yet act as fools.. The situation is always: I 'know', but I 'don't' (don't do, don't say, whatever 'don't' you may) :(

The weather has been acting as crazy as I've been feeling lately.. It's always like that with me by the way.. Weather goes side by side with my mood! What's even funnier is that today, I've been having this electrical spark with anything metal I touch! LOL! Talking of crazy!

I took this really beautiful picture of the tree branches that I see from my room's window every morning.. So I'll leave your imagination to take you to those beautiful leaves with the very white cotton clouds as their background.. At night, when the chilly wind blows, gosh, it gets a li'l scary :$

I pray that we all could find the best of us, while we're still here.. Amen.


"Friday night I'm going nowhere

All the lights are changing green to red

Turning over TV stations

Situations running through my head

Looking back through time

You know it's clear that I've been blind

I've been a fool

To open up my heart

To all that jealousy, that bitterness, that ridicule

Saturday I'm running wild

And all the lights are changing red to green

Moving through the crowds I'm pushing

Chemicals all rushing in my bloodstream

Only wish that you were here

You know I'm seeing it so clear

I've been afraid

To show you how I really feel

Admit to some of those bad mistakes I've made

Sunday all the lights of London

Shining , Sky is fading red to blue

I'm kicking through the Autumn leaves

And wondering where it is you might be going to

Turning back for home

You know I'm feeling so alone

I can't believe

Climbing on the stair

I turn around to see you smiling there

In front of me"

A li'l update: Didn't I say something bad has to happen when I miss fajr? Today's fajr, something so weird happened that was going to end my life.. I missed fajr for the past two days & so I believe I got a li'l 'push'.. I didn't get scared alhamduliLlah, but the pain was unbearable.. Well, I woke up, just minutes before my alarm went off, to a very life-threatening allergy; that caused my breathing to almost stop! I didn't eat anything new or do anything weird! My throat was almost blocked, my eyes so red & puffy (just as beautiful as Hitch's ;) ), making me barely see, while itching me like never before, & my nose running nonstop! Unable to breathe, I thought I was gonna die.. Didn't want to bother others, I pulled myself to prayer & then tried to get back to sleep; to get over the pain.. I wondered, when was the last time that I had ever felt so sick, but couldn't recall anything making me this weak.. It was REALLY BAD.. Gosh! It was nothing even like the appendectomy I had! Way worse!

We just can't lay back & give in to ourselves.. We gotta fight it & let our souls dance in the Light; 'cuz that's the only source of nourishment we (weak creatures) could ever get..

MASS said...

on a short notice to Lulu Hanem.
its haram to swear by themma and deen,

as a hadeeth says laysa mena man ya7lif bel amana and another man kana 7alefan falya7lif bellah

and if one forgets its kafara is saying laa ilalaha illa Allah.

sara said...

1. We're in Ottawa

2. We're not sure if it's halal.. We're deprived of all the yummy meals that we've been living on for years & years :'(

And lulu bet'olak: "i'm suffering here MASS :'( "..

:'( aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah

MASS said...

ottowa sounds like 3a6wa.

yup its not 7alaal, unless you get the meat with you ?

when you come to masr inshaAllah go to luciles in maadi in share3 tes3a and order TEXAS BURGER,,, yummmy and big(they have it on special days not all week)

9abrun jameel.

UmmBlog said...

Alhamdulillah! You're doing fine now!

sara said...


I'd love to come to masr someday inshaAllah & have that yummy sandwich..

As for the sabr part, waALlahi nothing tatses better than being capable of isburing for the sake of Allah.. Nothing tastes better than standing out & praying under the light blue sky.. NOTHING..
