What have i been doing

well thats the question ... what have i been doing or up to ..... well over the last month and a half my life has changed ... i have become more grounded and know where i ant to go with it .... even my dh has found a new lease of life that has affected all of us ..... sometimes we get so caught up in the day to day of our lives that we forget whats the most important and that is allah  and the reason we are here .... so this past month we have step it up and making sure that all in our house prays on time ... makes dikhr all the time ... we have even reduced the amount of tv watched ... masha`allah since we have been doing this  things are looking different  ... we feel lighter in our ways

quran is played more and i have even gone back to reading and studying too ... which is great ... i`m loving this new lease on life and alhamdul`ilah allah has given us this chance too

as you will have seen i havent posted much for a while and this begin the reason ... i havent  tried anything new but what i have done is a little more crocheting to keep me going and to keep my little one warm this winter .... they are just simple cardis and a blanket but i love how they turned out .... the original pattern  i have posted before and also a video of the tutorial  i found it on   just look through the pages and you will find it .... the original  pattern is for a 0 to 3 month old so i had to do some thinking and see where i could make it bigger to fit my 2 year old ... if your interested i will give you the places just let me know


  1. Assalamo alaikum,

    MashaAllah that's great about your changes, may Allah keep us all steadfast, ameen.

    I love the cardi's mashaAllah, and the hats are lovely, do you have an online tutorial for those?

  2. for the cardis yes their is an online tutorial here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVUWsJmMneM&feature=channel as for the hat i got them from ravel https://www.ravelry.com/account/login but the cardis in the tutorial is for a 0/3 month old and their such a simple pattern that i dont use the totorials since i made my frist cardi from their and thats over a year ago

    also ameen to you dua sis

  3. Masha'Allah, isn't it wonderful how even the smallest changes that bring us closer to Allah have such a profound effect. May you and your family continue to grow in faith and feel the benefits of it in your everyday lives. Ameen.

    The crochet is also fab, masha'Allah!
