Happy 40th UAE

mood: :)
craving: to celebrate national day

Salam Alykom and Hello to all my sweet readers out there. I know I've been away for a while. Tt's just that I really have had writers block. : / But, nonetheless, I'm  here now and that's what matters. I hope and pray that everyone is doing well and achieving the goals in your life. Can you believe 2011 is almost over? My birthday is right around the corner.
 Abo Azooz surprised our son (Azooz) on Thanksgiving Day. He showed up and the look on Azooz's face was priceless. Azooz actually stayed with Abo Azooz at his hotel last night. Needless to say, I didn't sleep at all. Imagine being with your child for almost four years 24/7 and then him not being there with you. But, I always want to be fair to Abo Azooz and his time with his son is very short. I pray that his relationship with his son will flourish and get better as the years go by. So, that's my little random for the month of November. On to my short sweet entry. Be safe and take care. To all you Emiraties out there, don't party to much. Be safe.

The legend of a visionary leader

No one can deny that His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan  (may God have peace upon him) was the most influential ruler of all time. His dedication to his people isn't seen anywhere and will never be matched. His love and admiration are unforgettable. Years ago I read that he said none of his people will be homeless and he will provide financially for his people to own their own homes. That to me shows that his heart was made of gold and his mind wasn't only for himself. He was a simple man, never living a day without thinking of his people. Not only did he think of his people, but others outside of United Arab Emirates who don't have the means of support from their governments. He helped all, not only Emiratis. If you look at his face, light radiates from it. I ask Allah (God) to forgive his sins and give him the highest place in Heaven. Ameen



So, now the Emiratis celebrate the birth of the UAE in its 40th year.

When I first arrived in UAE, the 36th anniversary was being celebrated. Now it seems that time has flown by so quickly. I can still remember driving around the Corniche in Abu Dhabi where it was packed to the fullest. All I heard were the cheers of the Emirati citizens celebrating their country. It's nothing like the 4th of July here in America- it's not just hot dogs and fire works, it's genuine happiness for the birth of their country and the peoples' happiness.



My sons father brought him the UAE flag.

final whisper: Long live Emirates!

Assalamu alaikum sister,
If Abu Azooz is reading this,I pray from deep my heart, May Allah open his heart for you to accept once again as his wife and let both of you forget and forgive each other whatever happened in the past in your married life and look forward to a happy journey by understanding each other for ever and may Allah grant BOTH OF YOU jannah hereafter.

I humbly make Du’a,…May Allah help both of you sister.
