My Hijrah Insha'Allah
Asalaam Alaikum Warahmat Allah Wabarakatu:
Lots going on around here...and anything that falls under the category of moving to another country is what's going on now. Insha'Allah my family and I- meaning husband and 4 small kids-are skipping the only home I've ever known, the US to a land in which the complete opposite is emphasized in so many ways. The ultimate "pro" is that the place God-willing we're heading to is Madinah Munawarra, the 2nd holiest city for Muslims. The ultimate "con" is leaving my dear parents whom I've been near and close to pretty much all my life...and leaving my new baby nephew, brother and sis-in law. Not to mention my daughter's hearing care services. Insha'Allah *God-willing, our lives will be different, but life should never be about life itself, it should be about making the grade that earns us increased Mercy from the Most Merciful, Ar-Rahman..leading to a placement in the Hereafter.
So in a few days insha'Allah, between all the crazy emotions of ending my life here for now, and objectively preparing for this endeavor in the luminous city of Madinah, insha'Allah, I hope to introduce to you my new place on the web depicting a hijrah to Madinah, 2007 style. From the most "powerful" country in the world to the most sincere and perhaps righteous place on Earth.
I know, some of you are probably thinking that there is no such place of perfection. That is so true, utopia only happens in Jannah/Paradise. But Allah has created beautiful virtues for every place on Earth, and the feeling I had in Madinah...and that is shared with Muslims world-wide is a beautiful virtue that can be seen by the soul for those who truly seek guideance from Allah...and that is the most special kind of beauty there is.
May Allah always guide us and protect us from the materials of this donia...
Please keep me and my family (those going insha'Allah and those staying insha'Allah) in your duaa..
and don't forget it's Dhul-Hijjah so let's all have a bit more patience (especially ME!!!)
May Allah reward you all................
