"There was for Saba, aforetime, a sign in their homeland [Yemen] two gardens to the right and to the left . . . be grateful to Him[Allah] . . .But they turned away, and We sent against them the flood released from the Dams [Maarib dam]" (Qur'an. Saba:15-16)
This blog is my personal blog with all the different facets that make up my personality. I am a Muslimah, woman, daughter, sister, wife, M.A. student, Ph.D. holder, teacher, editor, translator, self acclaimed “cook,” and maybe–in the process–will discover other facets of myself that I never knew existed. Oops I just discovered one now “Blogger” !!!!
Here’s what to expect from this site:
My recipes in full–with pictures. If there is a complicated process to any of them, I will make sure to include the pictures of each stage of the dish.
I will be sharing my amazement at my religion Islam that NEVER ceases to amaze me. In my study of Islam I am best likened to a toddler who has a very shiny object dangled in front of its eyes only to follow it eagerly with its eyes, hands and feet.
Occasional posts of personal creative/fictional prose, short stories, and free writes. Even lamentations. I am unpredictable, did I mention that I was a women 🙂 !
Posts about my endeavors. Trust me they are going to be many. I am always trying new things, and in the process either discovering that I enjoy them or am just not made up for them. Remember that the greatest oak was once a little nut who held its ground. There’s no telling how many miles I will have to run while chasing a dream but I am willing to run them. My ultimate goal is Jannat Al Firdawas (the highest level in Paradise) and I live in hope of achieving it, and fear of not.
Synopses of my different halaqas (lectures).
Translations of halaqas I attend, and afterthoughts.
At times my halaqa will be available online (live) through www.dimdim.com/–so make sure to check in whenever possible.
This is the beginning ! Have yet to see where this blog leads me.
