Ughhhhhh……I’m back with another blog! So tired. It’s like as if these past two weeks passed in two days. I had so many plans and none were fulfilled. I also did compering for the annual debate competition in my school today. I’m planning on not going to school tomorrow as I’m really tired. I have so many tests to prepare and I also have to prepare for my O levels, which I will, tomorrow, Insh Allah. I have almost three months to prepare and I need suggestions from you all!
How to save time? Better techniques to study? How to use your time conveniently?
Hope you guys have good days. I’ll get back to you all soon, till then, good bye! God bless you.❤️
About a week ago, I got into a conversation with this man, Scottie, and we discussed Islam. One objection he had against Islam was that Islam doesn’t ban slavery!
I was really confused over this matter. I could not believe that the Quran doesn’t stop slavery because it’s the last divine scripture after all and I have a very strong faith as a Muslim.❤️Alhamdulliah, but I still have very less knowledge on Islam so, I consulted my Islamiat teacher, Sir Hafiz. (Hafiz means the one who has committed the Quran to his mind and he had read the translation as well and revised it too), therefore, my teacher was the best person I could consult. I stayed after class and addressed him, “Sir, I wanted to ask you a question. We all know that slavery is bad and it’s banned in many countries, but it’s still there in many countries and why did Quran, being a complete code of life didn’t ban slavery?”, I said with an anxious expression.
I was shocked by his reply. He said, “Islam has banned slavery, Manahil.” After listening to what my teacher said, I went home and sent an 📧 email to scottiestoybox.com
Here are the screenshots of the email.
It’s just so sad that people have so many misconceptions about Islam. I wish that everyone could understand the good things in Islam, but they just don’t.
Anyways, this week has been very tiring. Ugh! There were so many tests to prepare and things to do. Hope you all have a good weekend. Lots of love.💕
Hi guys! I’m back.😊 Today I’m going to answer some questions that arise in our minds when it’s time to take some action to improve our situation, way of life or while taking a risk.
Every single day is a new chance for us to be a better person.
Q1. What if you fail?
You can stand back up. No! You have to stand back up. Failure is not something which has to last long. You have your future in your hand. You have another chance. So get back up! Do your thing and slay! Yeah, I mean it. Get up and prove all those wrong who told you that you couldn’t do it! Prove all them right who believed in you! And just be what you want to be. Shine and sparkle and make everyone proud! 🌟
Q2. What if you did something bad to someone?
Some people go like, “I did something bad to my friend so, now I wouldn’t have good in my life too as I don’t deserve it.”
You can always ask for forgiveness, you can always repent and you can always pray. You can always make things right again. Believe me, you can!
Q3. What if you have no motivation?
I’ve even heard people say, “I have no motivation! I need motivation to make my life better.”☹️
Like, what? You even need motivation to make your life better? Like, isn’t the fact that you’re in ruins enough for you to work hard and make yourself reach at the stage where you can actually be happy?
Q4. What if you’re weak?
Does that even matter? Even a thing as light, small and delicate as a feather can fly then, why can’t we? Why can’t we fly towards our goals? We can, we absolutely can! But rather than flying, lets start by jumping. Step by step, achieve all our goals.
Q5. What if no one believes you?
So what? Do you need someone to believe in you in order for you to be successful? No, You don’t! You are enough to motivate yourself, to believe in yourself and to achieve your goal! Like they say, “Believe and achieve.”
Listen to me! I need your full attention!
Tomorrow, it’s the start of a new week. Tomorrow, it’s a new day, but you don’t have to wait till tomorrow to “make your life better” or to “achieve your goal”! Start now! This minute! This second. Here’s your chance, grab a pen, list out all the things you want to do in this week and make it possible.
Today my mom told me that my father used to bring her cards and a bouquet 💐 of flowers every time she gave birth. (Which is 7 times)
Isn’t this just so cute? My parents had an arranged marriage and my mom was married to my father at a really young age. My mom was only 16.(the marriage was solemnised by the consent of both, my father and my mother) My father is a businessman and we’re rich so, he fulfilled all my mom’s wishes.(Wow, this is actually like a fairy tale)
Not only that, my father has 2 wives.(My mom is the second wife)
My father not only kept both his wives satisfied, but also made them happy.
In addition, I also made these egg muffins in the picture above. They tasted really delicious. I’ll share the recipe soon.
Leave me some cute stories in the comments below.😊Hope you guys have a good weekend. God bless you.❤️
Hello guys! I’m back😊 Today we discuss about the Muslim view on Halloween. Having views and acting on them is a totally different thing and many Muslims around the world celebrate Halloween, even I do.💕
1. Halloween is actually disliked as it is not permissible to change your appearance because Allah made us all beautiful and we have no need to change our appearances whether it is by plastic surgery or just makeup. I mean, using makeup to look neat is ok, but using it to look like a ghost is not OK! Isn’t it beautiful that Islam asks you to accept yourself the way you are, even if you’re fat or as thin as a match stick, Islam still promotes self love.
2. Islam also tells us to pray to have protection from evil and bad. Offering the dead any food or gift wouldn’t help. Only the God can help. Only Allah can guide and protect us so, it is against Islam to celebrate Halloween.
3. Sharing food and love with others is promoted by Islam and we all should definitely do this, but do you think that that it’s ok to only share sweets and food on one day? Where is our humanity-if not religion- on all other days? Don’t you think we should share not only our food, but also our belongings with others when they are in need?
4. Tricking someone is also considered bad in Islam as Islam and the life of the Prophet(P.B.U.H) always tells us to be truthful and not to play jokes on others. Jokes might be for fun, but I actually consider them bad as there are so many more ways to have fun and laugh, just saying.💕
5. Islam doesn’t tells you not to have fun, infact, Muslims have their own festivals like Eid-ul-Azha and Eid-ul-Fitr based upon their religious beliefs. We also get Eidi (money) from elders so it’s a lot of fun.
At last, I’ll end it with an authentic narration by the Holy Prophet(P.B.U.H), “Whoever immitates a people is from them.” This just shows that a person who tries copying someone will eventually succeeds in being the person himself. If we imitate a good person or thing,we’ll be good and if we imitate a bad person or thing, we’ll be bad. I’ll end it by saying, do what you feel right and what brings you closer to God and gives you peace and a feeling of contentment. Allah hafiz.❤️
I feel like I’ve been trapped in a world I was not made for. I want to fly high and soar through the clouds like a bird, but I am not given the opportunity to do so. I want to make everyone happy and everything perfect, but that’s not how this world works. I want corruption and bad to perish and I want justice, love and truth to prevail over all. I see people throwing garbage on the roads and it makes me feel bad for the poor earth. I see so much bad happening, but I don’t have the power or authority to stop it. I see people not only doing bad to others, but also harming themselves. What can I do when everyone thinks of me as a young, 15 year old immature girl?
