To my beloved son, The most beautiful thing about having you in my life now is: I get to reminisce about how you always settled down when you were snugly warm inside of me when I would play this surah (verse) in the Quran for you. I always pictured your eyes opening wide, a small smirk and you were just continent when you heard this surah. Many days and nights I played it and longed to meet you and hold you close to me in my arms. Today was something special. I played this verse in our glorious Quran and I reached my arms out to you and you jumped in my arms without hesitation and laid your head on my chest. As I looked down, you closed your eyes, as if you knew just what you were listening to. It eased you and put a smile in your heart. Just holding you in my arms while listening this recitation, brought back memories that I will always remember. Isn't our mind a wonderful blessing from our Lord? I can't thank God enough for the many blessings He has given me.
final whisper: It's not only children who grow. Parents do, too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can't tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it myself.
mood: relaxed craving: time with the family Cucaracha, means Roach in Spanish. There's something about those gross, brown, ugly bug...

Many non-Muslims have come to incorrectly believe that Allah is the ‘God of Muslims’ – A deity somehow different from the God of the other faiths. It should be emphasized that the term “Allah” has no implied meaning at all of an Arabian god, a Moon god or even a Muslim god. Muslims are not claiming any exclusiveness when they say "Allah". However Allah is simply the Arabic Name of the one Almighty God; the same name by which Arabic-speaking Jews and Christians, refer to God. The Allah comes from the term ‘al-ilaah’. Al is the definite article in Arabic, equivalent to ‘the’ in English, while ilaah means ‘a deity or god’. So Allah means The God. This is beautifully articulated in the first pillar of Islam which is to believe that God is One, in Arabic it would be, "La ilaha illallah" meaning "There is no god but God"
"I've learned from studying Islam and being Muslim, that if your happiness is based on people approving of everything you do, you're doomed to fail. Islam helped me stand up and take responsibility for everything to do with me."
