Masha-Allah, interesting post sister in Islam :)

Alhamdulillah I was able to find your blog again, sister Shahirah, I believe I used to have your facebook account on my 'facebook friends list' once upon a time then my first fb got deleted then I got another account http://www.facebook.com/anamariam.mababaya

anyways, Masha-Allah, I enjoy reading many of your entries where you share with us your Islamic knowledge :) May Allah accept our good deeds and guide us to more good deeds that please Him (Allah) which will ultimately lead us to Heaven near Him (Allah) and His Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam. Ameen.

Take care :)

A very timely reminder for me, Jazakallah Khair Shahirah <3.

I guess when we are on the edge, that's when we are truly tested and we have to trust His Wisdom and Mercy and he knows what's best for us Not what we think is best for us.
