Poem | Sands of Time


I sit here on my prayer rug listening to the clocks tick tocking away
Is it the begining or the end of another day?
Like sand though my fingers, time will pass until it's gone
I listen

...Tick Tock

The seconds sprint on

My marathon comes closer to the finishing line
To when it will end I am blind

For only Allah the All Mighty knows our expiry date
not a moment earlier
nor a fraction of a second late

I'm afraid yet hopeful of where I will rank
My dream is to be in the highest of Jannah to be quite frank

This race is about winning not the taking part that counts
Forget your status & wealth
It'll be your mountain of good deeds that amounts

Death is the only certainty of life, that is well known
Shaytaan tries to make your forget
don't be decieved, there is no philosopher's stone

I pray that as I cross the finishing line
The shahada escapes my lips, a feeling so sublime
You see as Muslims we don't try to escape death
The time we're given in the dunya is nothing but a test

Truth be told I'm not afraid of dying
I'm afraid of not doing enough to please Allah
To think that I have, to myself I'd be lying.

Oh Allah grant me a place in your gardens beneath which rivers flow
Make my heart pure, make my love for you glow
Save me from the torment of the fire where I wish not to burn
To Allah we belong and to Him we shall return.

I Took My Driving Test!

Salaam all, I recently took my practical driving test and I thought I would share my thoughts and feelings of that day with you inshaAllah. On Wednesday the 18th I had my driving test. I had practiced all  I could and now the rest was down to Allah swt. I tried to keep myself calm by telling myself that whatever happens it is Allah's will and if I don't pass then maybe this time I wasn't supposed to. As I stood for Taraweeh that night my heart was pounding as I asked Allah to keep me safe on the road and also for me to pass. After praying I felt a lot calmer and soon enough fell asleep. Woke up for Suhoor, prayed Fajr and tried to go back to sleep. All I could think about was how much I wanted to pass, not because I really want to drive or anything, but just because taking lessons was taking up a lot of my time and money that I could spend on other things. As well as taking up my parents time and my uncle's. I got a couple of hours of sleep and woke up bright and

Review | Unique Hijab's

Assalaamu alaikum! Sorry for going AWOL for a while there, my netbook was down so I couldn't write blog posts and post pictures )= Alhamdulillah it's working now, a BIG JazkaAllah khair to the computer fixer upper. Anyway today I have a review for an amazing hijab company in the states! =D I received 3 scarves from them yesterday, a thin scarf, a crinkle scarf and a diamante jersey scarf, they're all super cool but first I'd like to tell you a little more about the company itself. Unique Hijabs actually started on ebay and then launched it's own website in 2009 their website is: www.uniquehijabs.com They sell a huge variety of hijabs and accessories such as under scarves, sleeves and brooches. One of the things I liked about this company is something that they've written on their facebook page, which I can actually relate to as I'm sure you can too: Food for thought and Unique Hijab Facts, to help you make your next purchasing decision wisely.

Beauty Review | FW Beauty Skincare

I finally got around to writing up this much requested post on the products I bought from FWBeauty, the reason I haven't written something sooner is because I believe it's important to be using a skincare product for a while before reviewing it, as most skincare products don't give significant results after just one or two uses. I've been following the founders of FW Beauty Fatiha and Yasmine's journey online for a while now and I love seeing how successful they are becoming. They talk about their products with so much passion and confidence that I had to meet them in person and try out their skincare products. If you've been following me on Instagram you'll know that I attended the Muslim Lifestyle Show a few weeks ago and picked up the FW Beauty skincare products that I've been dying to try ever since I saw the glowing reviews. They had everything at a reduced price and I picked up the clear complexion bar, the gold elixir brightening facial
