Cocoa Red freebies . . . Inspirez Hadith & blank card too

Hi Everyone

I'm trying something new today that I hope EVERYONE (non Muslims especially) will like. . . and I would LOVE to hear your feedback. . .

Usually, I send out a Jumuah (Friday/Islamic) email from my Inspirez Group on Yahoo ((http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Inspirez)  . . . It usually has a scrapped hadith/verse from the Glorious Qur'an in it. Then I come here, leaving a link for you to download the  "hadith card" in case you'd like to print it. 

Today, I'm doing things a little differently. . . I still sent out my email and it still included the hadith for today. I even remembered to upload it to Zabra Scrap on Facebook!

But here's what I'm thinking. Every week I scrap a hadith but only a small amount of my blog followers can use it. So, this week, I thought I'd also upload the card (without the writing) as part of the download. That way anyone can use it for anything they like. . . You can write your own personalised message on it and use it for something you'd like to keep and share (perhaps, add a recipe or a inspiring message of your own?). I'd love to see what you do with it, so please pop me an email or leave me a message.

Here's what the blank card (or layered paper if you'd like to think of it that way) looks like:

And here's the hadith for today - its about Marriage in Shawaal . . .

Click here to download both the hadith and blank card

I scrapped it using Michelle's beautiful Cocoa Red kit, and can be purchased at her store at Scrapbook Max or www.craftyscrapsstore.com. . .

Don't forget to leave me some love and your comments/thoughts/ideas. I love to hear from you!

All the best till next time

Eid Mubarak and Inspirez Hadith freebie greeting card

Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullaahi Wa Barakaatu (May the peace, mercy, and blessings of Allah/God be upon you!) Brothers and Sisters in Islam

Click here to Download this Inspirez Hadith Freebie

On this joyous day of Eid, I pray that we are amongst both the groups mentioned in this beautiful hadith - that we found Laylatul Qadr/the Night of Power and spent it in prayer with sincere faith and hope of reward from Allah, and that our fast (during Ramadaan) too was out of sincere faith and hoping for the reward from Allah, so that we may all have all our previous sins forgiven.

I make dua that all your fast (saum), prayers (salaah), dua (prayer/appeals), reading of the Glorious Quran (tilaawat) and good deeds (ibaadat) be accepted, that all your transgressions be forgiven and that you reap the best of blessings of Ramadaan and Eid! May we all be amongst those who were successful in attaining Allah's Mercy, Forgiveness, Blessings, Taqwa (God Consciousness) and strengthening in Eemaan (Faith) this Ramadaan!!!

May we remain strong and steadfast in all the good initiatives we started during Ramadaan, and be rewarded by attaining ever higher levels of Taqwa (God consciousness) and nearness to Allah!

May this Ramadaan leave us all spiritually refreshed, rid of our bad habits and traits, and ready to be even better Muslims in the months to come.

May Allah continue to shower His blessings upon us and grant us even higher levels of spiritual success and blessings in Ramadaan's to come, Insha-Allah, Ameen!!

Wishing all Muslims a truly blessed Eid!!

Eid Mubarak (Eid Blessings)

(PS: I scrapped this hadith using Michelle's lovely Paris with Love kit, available in her store at www.ScrapbookMax.com and www.craftyscrapstore.com

Freebie Laylatul Qadr Dua and Hadith card

Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullaahi Wa Barakaatu

Again the month of Ramadaan has passed in a flurry and I haven't been good about posting this beautiful hadith and dua timeously . . . I scrapped this dua and hadith last year Ramadaan using Michelle McCoy's August (2011) QP Challenge kit, which was available as a free download on her blog www.craftyscraps.blogspot.com/ May it be of benefit, In shaa Allah

You can click on the image to download my freebie Hadith Card. Feel free to share it with family and friends :) A link back to my blog would be appreciated. >wink<

Here's a preview of the kit

I take this opportunity to ask maaf to all, if there is anything I've said or done, knowing or unknowingly that may have offended or harmed you in any way. Please keep me & my family in your duas.

May Allah place barakah in our time this blessed month, so that we may attain the full bounties of this great month . . . May Allah (SWA) bless, guide, protect and forgive us all . . . May Allah (SWA) make it easy for us to separate ourselves from the distractions of the Dhunya and enter Itikaaf or find our own way of connecting to and drawing closer to Allah (SWA). . . May Allah (SWA) purify our hearts, minds, and most especially our souls, and make us better Muslims. . . May Allah (SWA) accept all our ibaadat, salaah, tilaawat, dua and thikrullaah . . . May we reap the best rewards of Ramadaan, and be of those who find the Night of Power and spend it in ibaadat . . . May we remember our parents and teachers, the sick, the less fortunate, the deceased, and the entire Ummah in our duas . . . May Allah (SWA) accept them all In-shaa-Allah, Ameen!

Fi Amaanillaah (I leave you in the protection of Allah)
Wassalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullaahi Wa Barakaatu
