Happy Anniversary to me and Happy Canada Day!

So it’s been 1 year since my nikkah. A year of my marriage has passed, and mashaAllah it has been one of the best years of my life so far. May Allah (swt) continue to bless my marriage (and all marriages) with love, happiness, patience, understanding, and all the other blessings that come in many great ways. Ameen

My husband isn't here so he told my sis-in-law to buy a rose and give it to me today(the one in the pic), along with presents that he bought for me! MashaAllah, he also left a sweet letter that I had to open today...it made me cry!

Those that are still single and do not want to get married, believe me it can be one of the most wonderful things that can ever happen to you. Not only do you fulfill half of your Iman, but you also get a best friend, a lover, a partner (inshaAllah in the Hereafter as well), and a person who becomes your other half. As Allah (swt) says in Suran al-Baqarah, “they are garments for you and you are garments for them…” your spouse becomes your garment in ways you might have never thought. They become a barrier between you and evil, a way to become closer to Allah (swt) and His Rasul (s.a.w), an adornment, a comfort, a warmth, the coolness of your eyes, your passion, your jannah in this world and without them you feel incomplete and empty. SubhanAllah, it’s truly amazing how Allah (swt) blesses us with such beautiful gifts, we just need to make sure we’re grateful to Him (swt) and thank Him as often as we can. May Allah (swt) give us the Tawfiq to do so.

Wow, it’s the summer and a time where your wallet just seems to have a hole in it! I just went shopping yesterday with the girls, got some good deals at Heartland Town Centre, and not to mention a really big migraine by the end of the day. From spending almost an hour in every store to some very hungry girls “accidentally” breaking a table at Popeye’s to going to the Tim Horton’s drive-thru 3 times in a row (some people just can’t make up their minds) can give anyone a headache but a lot of laughs too!

Oh and it’s Canada Day! I just love Canada, even though it can be so expensive sometimes (yeah, I’m thinking of yesterday). Still, you can never really hate Canada, eh?

Anyways, that’s all for now folks! I’ll try to update soon, inshaAllah.

In the mean time check out this nasheed.

As-Salaamu 'Alaykum Sis!

Masha'Allah. Subhanallah, time really flies. I remember just last year.. the thread on Islamica :P. I'm really happy to hear how happy you are Alhumdulillah and I pray you continue to remain just as happy and happier with the blessings and mercy of Allah (swt). Please continue to keep us (the singles lol) in your duas.
