Day 21 – Ramadan and Deeds

I’m sleepy. Why is it that even though I know there are only 9 days left and I have so much Quran reading left and that these 9 days are so precious in terms of importance and blessings, that I am so sleepy!!! I really need to persevere and the hadith below is the perfect... Continue Reading →

Day 20 – Ramadan and Tranquillity

The last ten days of Ramadan are here and so quickly too. These ten days for earnest supplication for freedom from Hell for believers. Ten days may seem like a long time but it will be over in a flash and with it will be gone the great blessings that we can attain. Narrated Abu... Continue Reading →

Day 18 – Ramadan and Goodness

I love working at Deloitte. We have a Foundation called The Deloitte Foundation of which I am a member and we have partnered with Oxfam to raise donations for the Pakistan Flood Relief. We had a mufti day gold coin donation at Deloitte’s Sydney offices yesterday. I was having a stressful time organising people, collections, deposits,... Continue Reading →

Suddenly everything I’ve written about for the past 15 days takes on a new... Continue Reading →

Every feeling was scared and to save them, Love made a boat on which they could escape. Every feeling got into the boat except one. Love got down to... Continue Reading →

Day 14 – Ramadan and Mistakes

You know that moment right after you have done something wrong? When your heart beats a little faster and your hand shakes just that little bit? For me, that’s the beauty of being human. The consciousness Allah swt  has placed within us to know the difference between right and wrong and act accordingly regardless of... Continue Reading →

Day 13 – Ramadan and Purity

There are so many products out there which help us cleanse our bodies and purport to keeping them clean. Soaps, scrubs, body washes, perfumes, creams etc etc.. and yet exterior cleanliness is useless unless the interior is clean as well.  It’s like biting into a shiny green apple and finding a bitter rotten core.  Prophet...
