Quick Post before signing off

Two days before the month of Ramadan starts In shaa Allah. 

Allahuma Balighna Ramadan!

I still have one pending Blue Sky Tag from Ashley of Muslimah According to Me (One of the blogs I always follow because she writes beautifully and her blog is so informative!)

I have decorated our house a little bit for the Ramadan. I bought these lanterns in a cheap shop while the candle holders are from before. Don’t worry, I am not forgetting that Ramadan is not for feasting but more of doing ‘Ibadaah.

Two years ago, I went to a symposium about preparation for Ramadan and I remember one of the things they talked about Ramadan divided into three parts – the first ten days, the middle and the last ten days. I will leave you with this:

Let’s spend this Ramadan as if it’s the last. Let’s give our best shot and aim to collect a lot of hasanats (credit for good deeds) In Shaa Allah!

May Allah accepts our fasting, good deeds and ‘Ibadaah. Ya Rabb!


P.S. I might go to Makkah for Umrah and visit Madina, In shaa Allah. If you have any specific dua you want me to ask, just email me through my contact.

Ramadan Mubarak! ❤️
