last 10 days of ramadan

so we are in the last 10 days of ramadan, i just can`t believe how quick it has gone by, so what will we do to increase our ibadah ,

well insha`allah will do more reading of the quran , and try to pray night prayers as long as dd(baby) sleeps and doesn`t keep us awake

insha`allah allah will accept all our dua`s in these last days and that all of you will be blessed in this month too

Narrated Sahl bin Sad (Radi-Allahu 'anhu):

Allah's Apostle (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, "The people will
remain on the right path as long as they hasten the breaking of the fast."

what are we eating

so being married to an algerian and living in algeria especially in ramadan means that their has to be chourba and borak on the table no matter what well not tonight

my dh was only to happy to change the menu so tonight we had

veg soup

lasagna

potato wedges

coleslaw

and only one algerian dish  shlitta

so how did it go , masha`allah

it was the first time in days that the kids eat great

so i have taken pic of my lasagna and coleslaw also the wedges

kids

so today is just one of those day i sit back and look at my kids and think subhan`allah , allah truly bleesed me .

yes their are time that they drive me crazy but i couldn`t live without them , my son who does everything that he is asked all day he goes back and fort to the shop buying and even in this heat and he`s fasting he never complains ....

the my two big girls help so much in the kitchen and after iftar they let my sit and relax and they wash and tidy the kitchen for me

then the baby she just makes me laugh all the time the faces she pulls masha`allah , and now she is coming to us wanting to kiss us all the time it is so precious

i ask allah that he keep them on the straight path that he guide them to do right by him and by us and that their off spring will be blessed just like them insha`allah
