Seeing the same crescent, finally :D

(picture's source)

You know how you wake up sometimes with a certain rhythm playing through your mind or words floating along? Well, I’ve been up with these almost every morning now.. Yesterday, I woke up with “Aljanatu haq, wannaru haq” on my mind! I woke up saying it!!!!!!!!! And today, I woke up with daddy’s comforting voice singing to my heart the beautiful egyptian lullaby: “baba habeeby Allah yekhalih, yetawil omro we (dunno what :$ ), gably aroosa we akhooya hosan, shee ya hosan, orosy ya aroosa orosy ya aroosa..” :)

I still remember my doll in her beautiful big pink gown dancing round & round.. I really don’t know where it went! Babaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa :’(

And yeah, I’ve been quite down for the past few days, no; weeks, & something really really cute made me happy from the inside out.. Bro (
a year & a half younger than me, but I always feel that he’s older.. I throw everything difficult on him & he just magically makes it a whole lot easier!) stood in the house, on top of the stairs & said in the loudest voice, & in the most beautiful arabic accent: The prophet salla Allahu 'alaihy wa sallam said:Indeed amazing are the affairs of a believer! They are all for his benefit. If he is granted ease of living he is thankful; and this is best for him. And if he is afflicted with a hardship, he perseveres; and this is best or him.”.. I couldn’t but run upstairs & squash him reeeeeeeeal hard! Thank you bro! I love you <3

If you noticed, rasulu Allah salla Allahu 'alaihy wasallam didn't say the affairs of a 'muslim', he said of a 'believer'.. May we be amongst the believers.. Amen.

This will be my prayer for this Ramadan; being amongst the believers.. Wait a minute, did I say Ramadan? Ramadan as in Ramadan? Like I lived another year & will be blessed inshaAllah to live another brand new Ramadan & meet with that night, the one worth a thousand nights? What?

** Ramadan kareem, mubarak, happy & accepted everyone :D **

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~** And my invitation is still on **




P.S. This is for arabs, I wish there was an english version to it..

Gameel.. Wallahi Gameel!

The weather right now in Cairo is amazing! SubhanAllah.. Just the weather for the Balcony and a Mus7af!

I don't know, but, Allah means goodness to those who speak out for Him, and all we have to do is speak out.. let our voices be heard from among the herd.. Let our spirit wander like a bird.. break free, remember the dirt.. that we came from..

Can you see the light? I bet you can.. :)) Ramadan is all about taking a deep breath, prepare yourself, and Jump on board the ship to safety.. that's how I see it, and I believe that's why it's there.. a bonus level in the game of life, to increase your score and maybe give you another life, a different sort of life, a new more proper direction, something better to hope for, something better to feel, something more elegant that what you usually look up to..

Something, enlightening, pure, to be felt yet not to be imagined.. if u don't hop on board then you can't imagine what it feels like,, it is either u close your eyes and jump in, or miss it all!

And this ship, never sinks.. never did, never will.. it is only for those who want to be victorious..

nuff said, let's go back to praying..


sara said...


Allahu Akbar.. It's what I always feel.. I'm so grateful for it all Abdo, it's unbelievable.. Unbelievable!

You know, THIS very moment is wonderful.. Every moment is, but we mis-enjoy it..

Pray Abdo.. Beg & plead; for I know that He Who's made us Will always protect us from all that's dark..

May He protect you Mr. FM :)

mondo respetto,
