The BEST news ever!

mood: Happy
craving: spending the weekend with my family and friends.... <3

First of all I wanna give a very, very, very BIG Salam Alykom to my little sister and my little brother. Why might y'all ask? Well, since I've been back from UAE they've asked a lot questions about my religion. Yesterday, I picked them up from school, along with my daughter, and my little brother just started asking a lot of questions, more than usual. I answered and he was so fascinated at some of the answers. I showed him and my little sister some youtube videos on Islam and he said," I want to become Muslim and I do believe." My little sister said the same. She said, I believe that there is one God and Jesus is not the son of God, nor God. They said, they believe Muhammad is the last prophet to all mankind. My dad is starting to ask, too. So, yes, they both took their testimony of faith last night. The Shahada.. :) :) :) I'm on cloud 9... Wouldn't you be?
These are the words my siblings said. 
La ilaha il Allah, Muhammad-ur-Rasool-Allah
(None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah) 

I just remembered, when my little brother was little, we used to take him with us to the Masjid (mosque) and he used to say, Kristie, I wanna be called, Muhammad. :) :) :) I'm giggling about it now. What a great name. ;) So, his wish came true. Nine years later and he'll be 15yrs old in a couple of months. :)

So, welcome to Islam, little sister and bro... All your past sins have been forgotten.. Alhamdulilah (Thank you God) 
In other news, the weekend has started and it's a start to a great weekend. My friends and I will get together tonight, I'm thinking of cooking for them. :) Hoping my little sister, Georgette comes in from another state. I wanna have a small celebration for my my little sis and bro, and would be nice if she could be here , too. :) Since we don't mix, (men and women) my little brother will hang out with some of my friends son's who are also Muslim. The girls will all hang out here at my home. :)

Hmmm, I guess that's it for today. I pray all y'all have a GREAT weekend. :)

I ask Allah to make this journey easy for my siblings and to give them what's best in this life and the hear after ameen

final whisper: If you believe there is ONE God and that prophet Muhammad is the final and last prophet, don't delay..

Wa Alaykum Salam,

OMG, I'm so glad I came to read your Blog, this lovely post sure put a smile on my face. Sometimes things happen for a reason and maybe this is why it was meant for you to return to the USA. Alhamdullila! I wish one day at least one of my siblings can convert, it's hard not to share the 1 thing that more dear to your heart (Islam) with the people you love most. InshAllah.... Just keep setting a good example and they will see how beutiful our religion is inshAllah. Love you. <3

that's me said...

Hola Texan, me dio gusto saber que estas de vuelta, subhanallah!, no cabe duda que Allah tiene su propio plan, te confieso que estaba un poco triste al oir que dejaste UAE y que te has divorciado pero leyendo este post, te das cuenta de que algo asi tuvo que pasar para que ahora tu familia conociera mas sobre el Islam y lo aceptacen en sus corazones, animo!, Insh'allah tu papa va a salir bien de su operacion, un super saludo cuidate mucho ...

Because life is beautiful.
