“I’ve got my eyes on you”

Yeah, dude, you keep your gaze on them. Because if you don’t see it with your own two eyes, you have no reason for them to be the cause of the separation of your lips or the usage of brain cells. Innocent Until Proven Guilty. That’s it. That’s what Islam encourages us to follow. So […]

“Sally the camel has two humps”

No, your bun isn’t nesting on the top of your head because you’ve got ‘long hair’. I’ve got long hair (#LongHairICare, anybody?). I’m wearing that cap, ya’ll. We merely have to adjust our mane to lie lower (oh, the struggle when you keep having to redo your hair because it just won’t go to the […]


*That pun was so intended and I regret nothing, so hah!* I’ve been sick. Like, full-blown, can’t-breathe-through-my-nose sick. Which is why I haven’t posted all (excluding Monday and Thursday) week. There was no time in between the sniffling and nose-blowing. What I learnt was that tissues can be quite stuck-up (maybe it’s just the brand […]

“Cow’s go moo”

Get your gumboots on, and your high heels off Get your bling rings off, and your plastic gloves on Get your inner nerd on, and your queasiness off I give up. That’s all I have. I’m hungry, and I have to wait until the kaleji is ready. Gotta love that once-a-year tradition because IT IS […]

*flips collar*

SilentLivingAnthology [] nominated me (well, and 9 others) for the Liebster Award. Please don’t ask me the specifics on how it works, because I don’t want to tell you (fine, okay, it’s because I don’t know). What I do know, is that I thank the nominator, answer the questions, nominate about 10 other bloggers and […]

“Describe him (S.A.W) to me” II

The man who never wrote an autobiography, yet has more written about him than any man in the world. He had friends. The people that were with him. They were walking around him to try to serve and protect him. When he used to say something they used to harken to what he used to […]

“Get your party on”

I’m a year older! *cue cheers* I’m also one year closer to my death! *cheers die off* Yeah, we don’t really worry about the flip side when we break out the cake, do we? Evidence in the Qur’aan and Sunnah indicates that celebrating birthdays is a kind of Bid’ah or Innovation in religion, which has […]

“My, don’t you look different”

Marilyn Monroe said that a smile is the best makeup a girl can wear. I agree. But that’s not going to hinder me from applying on a little bit of concealer or eye shadow. I love makeup as much as the next girl (normal girl), but I think there’s a line. Contouring and highlighting goes […]

“Hear me growl”

The first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah have started, Alhamdulillah! Know what else is starting? Fasting! I know, I know, the days are getting longer and the mornings colder, but we have to make our sacrifices. And believe me, it’s worth it. So maybe it’ll be hard the first and second day, but it’ll get […]

“It’s my jam”

Nah, not Lady Gaga or Justin Bieber. Not even Maher Zain or Yusuf Islam. I’m thinking more along the lines of Sheikh Bandar Baleela, Sheikh Salmaan Al Utaybi, Sheikh Abdur Rahman As Sudais and the like.. I haven’t got a favourite Qari, that’s for sure. Picking just one? The struggle is real, bro. There’s something […]
