Our Lord! You truly know all that we may hide in our hearts as well as all that we bring into the open, for nothing whatsoever, be it on earth or in heaven, remains hidden from Allah. {Quran, 14:38}


Luminosity Introduced

Asalaam Alaikum Warahmat ALLAH Wabarakatu:

Well it's been 3 months since I've blogged here, because I've been at a different location mainly, ( My husband, children and I have moved to the City of the Prophet Muhammad (peace & blessings be upon him) which is in Saudi Arabia, Madinah. I've written about our experiences over there and begun describing the differences over there in comparison to the US (sort of) where I lived all my life up until now. There are virtues everywhere on Earth. In the US there are things I miss like the respect for time, but there are things that I probably couldn't get anywhere else in this world, and that is being part of a community that loves Allah as a whole. Islam is perfect and Muslims are not! Likewise, not everyone here is the ideal Muslim or Muslimah and some you find following culture more than for the sake of the true Islamic ways. But only in Jannah will perfection be everywhere and in everyone as Allah prescribes. So I invite you to follow my journey in hopes I can give you a glimpse of the Luminosity of Madinah and in hopes that your heart will be softened towards the radiance of this Holy Site. I pray that with my learnings and findings your heart will have increased desire to appreciate the richness of this land, being encouraged to visit for a pilgrimage, read up on the blessings of Madinah, or even make a plan to move here, God-willling. This goes for all of those just learning about Islam too, because to understand Islam..we need to understand the story of the luminous city of Madinah.
May Allah guide us all to do what pleases Him the Most.
...and Allah knows best.

wa'alaikum asalaam warahmat Allah wabarakatu:
i have been muslim all my life, and within my life i have gone through many stages of practice..praying that i will always improve and increase in knowledge of what is loved by Allah. my arabic reading is very weak, writing is just ok..

as far as being "lucky" to live here in Madinah..i look at it as a blessing indeed, however more than that it is a test that if i don't pass then i will have gained no goodness nor reward. may Allah forbid that from happening. may Allah guide all muslims in learning more about our beautiful way of life that was prescribed, and may Allah guide everyone to truth in heart and matter where we are in madinah or miami beach!

jazakAllah kheir for your comments sister
