In the video, he talks about how Mars is too cold for humans to live on, and Venus is too hot for … Continue reading Allah (SWT) Made Me PERFECTLY
Allah (SWT) Made Everything!
When my daughter was younger, we would have daily discussions on our evening walks about how Allah (SWT) made EVERYTHING. He made the trees, the sky, the animals, the flowers.

Additionally, during the holy month of Ramadhan, every time we do a good deed, its reward is multiplied. We don’t receive just one reward for each deed – … Continue reading The Reward is Multiplied

Several weeks ago, I saw a post by Raising Rayyaan about looking at last year’s Dua list and preparing this year’s. Her post definitely made me pause and reflect. There are so many Duas that we made last year that have been answered, whether with a “yes,” an “it’s not the right time yet,” or … Continue reading Five-Year Dua Book

Are we Ready for our 12th Imam (AS)?
Lately, my daughter has a learned that the 12th Imam (AS) is still alive and that he is in hiding. She understands that when he comes out of hiding, we will be able to see him and that we want to try to be friends with him. I want to develop that understanding further, to … Continue reading Are we Ready for our 12th Imam (AS)?
