Eid Mubarak for tomorrow - FREEBIE

Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullaahi Wa Barakaatu Everyone

I can hardly believe that it is time to bid Al Widaa to Ramadaan . . .

Attached is the Eid card I made for you using Michelle's beautiful Icy Blue Christmas kit (Michelle's beautiful kits are available for purchase in her store at ScrapbookMax). . .

May Allah (S.W.T.) fill our lives and our homes with Barakah and Nur, and bless and guide all our decisions, interactions, initiatives and relationships so that they may lead to our success and happiness in both the Dhunya and the Aakhirah, Insha'Allah, Ameen.

May Allah (S.W.T.) make it easy for us to uphold and continue building on all the good we started during Ramadaan and the months preceding it. May our daily journey of closeness to Allah (S.W.T.) fill our hearts with joy and happiness, and bring peace, contentment and abundance to all areas of our lives. May Allah (S.W.T.) guide us to be pious Muslims, be steadfast in prayer and all other ibaadat, fulfil all our obligations, help us to overcome our challenges with ease, and guide our families on the straight path, Insha'Allah, Ameen

Wishing you and your family a truly blessed Eid!

A gift for those fasting for the 1st time - 2 FREEBIES (1 for Boys & 1 for Girls)

Here's a little gift I made for all the little ones who have fasted for the first time this year. . . 



I make dua that Allah (S.W.T.) nourish the seeds of love and piety within all our little one’s and youth, so that they may grow up with undying love for Allah (S.W.T.) and His Rasool (SAW), that they be blessed and guided throughout their lives, that they may have strong Imaan and Taqwa, the best of Akhlaaq, good health and grow up to pious Muslims, living by the guidance of the Quraan and Sunnah, and loving Allah (S.W.T.) above all else. May Allah (S.W.T.) shelter them from the ugliness in the world, keep them strong so that they may withstand the negative influences and pressures they will face, and inspire them to be strong and guided leaders of our Ummah, Insha'Allah, Ameen.   

Wishing all Muslims well over the last day of Ramadaan! May Allah (swt) accept all our duas and ibaadat, and make us of those who reap the full benefits of this blessed month, Insha-Allah, Ameen!

Hi Everyone

I see there are a few hadith which I haven't gotten to posting, so I'll be posting those every couple of days. This one is about Salaatul Istigaarah (Salaah/Prayer for guidance) . . . (Click on image to download)

Strawberry sting kit and a Freebie :)

Hi Everyone

Sorry I haven't been around much and that all I have been posting have been mainly my hadith each Friday . . . Not to worry though, I'll be back full steam again by next month :) 

In the meantime, Michelle's just launched a really awesome kit called Strawberry Sting and I just couldn't wait to get playing and show it off to you . . .

Isn't it adorable?!? Remember, you can get most of her beautiful kits at Michelle's ScrapbookMax Store 

Here are some beautiful layouts put together by my CT buddies . . . I've tried to include their names so you know which layouts below to who :) I hope you'll enjoy them as much as I did!

These first 2 cuties of Conner where made my Julie . . . 

The next one I think was done by Michelle (I think) . . . Mmm, makes my mouth water!

 I particularly love the framing on this next one by Sandrine

And the way Jana used curves and circles in this layout, just BRILLIANT! 

I love the clustering on this bright and spunky layout by Edina too  :)
If I've made any bloopers in who scrapped what, please do forgive me! 

And now for the freebie you've been looking forward to . . . A cluster and some wordart I made especially for you!

Ramadaan Mubarak, Ramadaan Kareem - and a Freebie greeting card***

Assalaamu Alaykum and Ramadaan Mubarak (blessings) and Ramadaan Kareem to all my fellow Muslims :)

The great month for which we have been preparing for so long, Ramadhaan, is here!  The great month of Allah (S.W.T.)’s Mercy and Forgiveness. . . The month in which the gates of Hell are locked and the devils are chained. . .  The Noble month in which the Glorious Qur’an was revealed. . .
In this great month overflowing with blessings, and rewards, I make dua that Allah (S.W.T.) guides us to  seize all the opportunities we can to attain nearness to Allah (S.W.T.), to seek forgiveness from Allah (S.W.T.), to strive to attain Allah (S.W.T.) blessings and rewards.  I make dua that Allah (S.W.T.) grants us all health and strength to fast throughout this month, the means to fulfill all our obligations and the desire, ability and follow through to reaching out and assist those in need.  I make dua that Allah (S.W.T.) softens our hearts, guiding and helping us to also reach out with our hearts, visiting and showing our love and care for our family, the orphans, the elderly and the sick.
May we be of those who reflect on the significance of this month, the lessons of the Glorious Qur’an, the life of our Beloved Nabi Muhammad (SAW) and strive to increase the goodness in our characters: generosity, kindness, love, humility, Allah consciousness…
During this month, may we keep our tongues wet with the remembrance of Allah (S.W.T.) . . . May the Qur’an be our companion each day!  May our homes glow with the love and togetherness, bonded together with love for Allah (S.W.T.).  As we cleanse ourselves physically and spiritually this month, may we strive to instill in ourselves beautiful new habits to replace those with no benefit, and may these good habits flourish throughout our lives.
I make dua that Allah (S.W.T.) will remove our veils so that we may see and be truly grateful for all that Allah (S.W.T.) has blessed us with . . . family, health, homes, provisions . . . We have so much while others lack even basic needs like water and food. . . May we remember them, help them and keep them in our duas, Insha'Allah, Ameen
Enjoy this beautiful Hadith about the reward for fasting, and another dua from me to you!

I scrapped today’s beautiful Hadith and greeting using Michelle McCoy’s Doodle Bug kits, available at www.scrapbookmax.com  

I also make a special dua for the Guests of Allah (S.W.T.), especially my dear sister who will be spending Ramadhaan in the Holiest of lands, Mashallah! 
May Allah (S.W.T.) grant them a salaamat travel / safe journey, their health and strength, and the most beautiful of spiritual experiences wherever they go! May they feel Allah (S.W.T.) nearness every step of the way and may Allah (S.W.T.) shower them with the best of blessings and rewards, Insha'Allah, Ameen!
While we will surely miss them, we hold them close in dua and warm our heart knowing that they have been so GREATLY HONOURED!
May Allah (S.W.T.) grant them Umrah Maqbool and Mabroer and the acceptance of their duas,
Insha'Allah, Ameen 

May your Ramadaan be truly blessed . . .
Allah (S.W.T.)’s Forgiveness cleanse your heart and soul,
May Allah (S.W.T.)’s nearness warm your heart,
Allah (S.W.T.)’s Mercy increase your love for all that is Islam, and
Allah (S.W.T.)’s Blessings bring all kinds of richness to your life in the Dhunya & Aakhirah.

Jazaakallah Geyr to all, for the warm wishes and duas I have received!

Ramadaan Mubarak and Ramadaan Kareem
