Spiritual | The Muezzin


Two days ago the Muezzin of Finsbury Park masjid passed away 'inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajioon' (To Allah we belong and to Him we shall return)

My father along with with many people in the local area and from afar attended his janazah today.

The story goes...the Muezzin never missed a day to open the masjid at Fajr and give the adhaan. A pious, kind hearted man who never had a quarrel or conflict with another person. Today my father came home with stories about him, felt like I was listening to a story about one of the sahaba's. I never met him, yet when I thought of him from what my father told me I couldn't help but feel teary, like someone I actually knew had passed away.

All the people at the masjid only had words of praise and compliment because of his character mashaAllah. The janazah was attended by soo many people they could not all fit in the mosque to pray for him.

Through the cold snap, rain, hail sleet and snow he never failed to make it to the masjid before everyone to give the call to prayer and make sure the prayer started on time, until two days ago. When people arrived at the masjid for Fajr and realised it was not open they were concerned, as for almost the last decade he had been on time. The worshippers contacted the family to ask where he was and his wife went to call him. As she called him she realised he had returned to Allah in his sleep. His last prayer...Isha at the mosque.

I never met this man but heard his melodious voice echoing the praises to Allah, his testimony of faith and his call to the people through the heart of North London many times, I never knew he was a friends father and never knew my family knew him too. He had touched so many peoples hearts that today people from all backgrounds turned up for his Janazah.

How many of us can really say we treat people with such love and kindness the way our beloved Prophet (s.a.w) taught us? How many enemies have you made? How many times have you prayed at the masjid that people are concerned for you when you don't turn up one day? How many people will turn up at your Janazah and pray for you? Return to Allah before it's too late.

May Allah bless this amazing man and grant him a spacious garden in Jannat-ul-Firdous. May He bestow peace and tranquillity in the hearts of his family and give them patience at such a difficult time.

Please keep him and his family in your du'as...A loving husband, father & pillar of the community who will be greatly missed....The Muezzin.

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
