Life in Diferent Directions

Isnt it amazing how your days just mange to slip away and then you sit down and think wow where did today go .... this has been happening alot lately ... it`s even amazing how the year passes by so quick

well for us it has and i cant believe that it was nearly a year ago my dad came to visit and already coming again .... this week end he will be here for the second time ... but staying a little longer than before ...all the kids are so excited even the little one as she knows he has some gifts for her

even this last month has been one for the books ... it has been busy and to say that with out my dh being here .... my son fractured his arm which meant that i needed to do more of the outside chores that he does for me and these days i would rather sit at home .... also the kids have had exams and alhamdu`lilah they have come out the other side of it ... with two of them getting excellent marks and comment form teachers ... and one not so good ... but she will have next term to make that up

A few weeks ago i started to go back to studying which has been great and then decided that after my dad goes back i will take back up the tajweed of the quran again ... my lovely neighbor who i use to study with has now finished her studies so ... i will be doing it with her at least four times a week as well as learning arabic ... which i`m so excited as these days my dh watches so many things in arabic and then says to me it`s a shame that you dont understand .,... now if it was in derja (algerian Arabic ) i would have no problems but it isnt ...

i also wish to finish the blanket in the pic above while my dad is here and uses any spare time he has on the pc as i know i wont get to touch it while he`s here and also my dh and kids as their now on two weeks holidays


  1. inshallah have fun with your dad and family

  2. oh jazak`allah khair sis .. we intend to have alot

  3. SubhanAllah, the title of your blog really hit me.. passing through this life... not a permanent abode. Jazakillah khayr for the reminder in the wise title. May Allah preserve you and your family my sister in Islaam.

  4. oh masha`allah sis ... i glad that it has done something for you ...jazak`allah khair for stopping by too

Guest post From Halal Home Cooking ....Pancakes with a twist

As-Salaamu Alaykum I'm Umm Hamza from  Halal Home Cooking  today I'm sharing a recipe for a breakfast staple with a twist. Pancakes are my children's favourite breakfast food. They will gladly eat cereal with milk, creamy porridge and jam/jelly doughnuts but unlike those aforementioned staples that only get half to three quarters eaten because A. they turn soggy B. get's cold and sticky or c. no jam left, pancakes will  always  be eaten, no excuses. Once you've honed your basic pancake recipe you are free to experiment with flavour combinations and that's exactly how these chai spiced chocolate and tahini pancakes came about ma sha Allah Source : I found this chai spiced latte powder whilst searching 'halal' during my on-line grocery shopping. I'm always hoping when hitting that search button new products will pop up and this time it d

Pocasi/ split green pea soup

Asalamu alikum Well it sure has been a long time since i posted so i thought let me share this Pocasi recipe with you while i remember This soup is made from split green peas first i wash the peas and then add them to my pot (i used a pressure cooker) i added onion ... garlic..... i diced up carrots ...courgettes...and potato into  really small bits and added to the pot i also added black pepper....salt ...cumin...and razel hanut.... fill with water and placed lid on  and allowed to cook about 30 to 40 mins in total ... then let the pressure out and open then  stir.... if you need more water add and allow to cook towards the end add some tomato puree and allow to thicken up a little .... when i make this i do not use oil and i should say that this type of soup will continue to thicken and even the next day you will need to add more water to thin out ... but masha`allah is a really nice soup

Pizza Roll

Asalamu Alikum For months my oven hasn't worked and all of a sudden it was working again so the first thing i made was pizza roll ... while doing this i was teaching my daughter my 13 year old how to do this as my 15 year old already knows how to this is basically the samr as the homemade pizza i make only the sauce is a little different ... all i do is use tomato puree and add spices of my choice and then i thin it out to make it easier to spread it is roll out like normal pizza here is my recipe for that you can add any topping and then just take the side and roll the dough till it's like a log ... then cut into rounds and place on tray ... i will add cheese on top as well as the cheese that is inside and then bake for about 15 to 20 mins
