A couple reasons why I choose to become Muslim. Islam is my life..

mood: Accomplished
craving:  a little of this and a little of that.

Salam alykom and Hello. I hope everyone is having a great week. :) Remember, do something special for yourself today. Or better for someone else. Now, on to my entry.

"I am a Muslim woman who not only wants to save the world, I want to show the world what Islam is. Thetruth, not what the western media shows."

- Texan after UAE

Since becoming Muslim several years ago, my mind has really opened. Not only has it opened up to accepting myself as I am, but my mind has opened up to other cultures and other ways of life. Being Muslim is the biggest blessing God has given me. Since my divorce, non Muslims (my family and friends) ask me, are you coming back to Christianity? Let me tell y'all a little secret: I didn't come to Islam because I married a Muslim. I was Muslim before I married him. I simply look at them with a big smile, and say, I'd rather God take my life than me go back to a religion I never understood. The truth is the truth. That's how I feel. Now, I'll show y'all just a couple of the reasons I choose Islam and to become Muslim. Again, we are all entitled to our own choice of religion. Islam works for me and a 1.5 billion (more now) other people in this big world. I never judge anyone for their religion. Heck, I have some of my best childhood friends who practice Christianity and plus my family. I love and respect them dearly. Thank y'all for accepting me as I am and what I choose. I love y'all.

We have a Verse in our holy book;


So, I tell people that when they try to debate with me about Islam. It's simple, you don't like what religion I choose?  Just listen to what Allah (God) said in this above verse in our holy book. :)

Now, on to showing y'all just a couple of reasons I choose Islam.. I was amazed and dazed. LOL Seriously.

Now, who could deny these scientific reasons? Scientist are just finding out in the last thirty years what God told us 1,400 years ago in our Holy Quran about these AMAZING miracles. So many have come to join Islam because of these Amazing facts.


In the resort town of Skagen you can watch an amazing natural phenomenon. This city is the northernmost point of Denmark, wherthe Baltic and North Seas meet. The two opposing tides in this place can not merge because they have different densities.

The above picture of the seas have a verse in our glorious Quran. It goes like this

 He has set free the two seas meeting together.  There is a barrier between them.  They do not transgress.  (Quran, 55:19-20)

This is just one reason that I choose Islam. I'll give y'all one more and the rest will be up to y'all to explore our religion. 

 The Quran on Human Embryonic Development:

In the Holy Quran, God speaks about the stages of man’s embryonic development:
 We created man from an extract of clay.  Then We made him as a drop in a place of settlement, firmly fixed.  Then We made the drop into an alaqah (leech, suspended thing, and blood clot), then We made the alaqah into a mudghah (chewed substance)... 1(Quran, 23:12-14)

The above link y'all will find easy explanations of our religion. Thanks for all the emails asking about Islam and I'm sorry it's taken me so long to tell y'all a little about my religion. Please pardon me. Y'all can always look up the nearest Mosque in your area. 

final whisper: Ignorance is intolerable. There is no excuse to remain ignorant about Islam.

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!
Because life is beautiful.
