Levels of faith

well said

thehijabioutlook

Through your life your faith will go from points of being so high that you’re constantly praying, to points of being so low that you sometimes forget to pray. Its normal for your levels of faith to fluctuate because it can be difficult to stay strong in faith, especially when we live in a world where there are many distractions diverting us from the right path. We’re questioned by science and social media constantly on why we believe in a god we’ve never seen, or why we believe in a religion spread by an illiterate man in the middle of a dessert. But even though the prophet (pbuh) couldn’t read or write, he could deliver an entire religion and he could talk in front of hundreds of people because Allah gave him strength and faith to do so. And there came a time when the prophet didn’t receive a revelation…

Modest Dress Code For Children

Yeah I know it seems weird to be writing a article on how to dress children but I feel I must have a say and this seems like the only place were I can have a say so away I am writing .

I feel there are certain ways children should dress and this is my way no one Else’s way feel free to agree or disagree , I really don’t care .

 

Showing the knees in both boys and girls is tacky and immodest should be avoided.

The length of a dress should be at least below the knee or longer ankle length is preferred. When one sits down one should make sure that dress is draped over legs and ankles if need be one may use a small lap blanket to cover legs and be modest

  • Sleeves should cover shoulders and the older one is the longer the sleeves once one is 5 years old they should not be wearing short sleeves unless in the privacy of their own house, 5 to 11 years old, from 12 years to adult one should wear long sleeves whenever they are out of the house.
  • Undershirts and underwear should always be clean and free of holes and stains , If you are embarrassed to show them then don’t wear them. Underclothing should fit comfortable and not pinch or ride up . Once a girl develops breast she should always wear a Bra .
  • Bras should fit and be comfortable not ride up pinch , pull or bulge if it does any of these things then it is to tight
  • Shorts for boys should fall to just below the knee , wearing pants would be preferable as they are more modest.shorts
  • Pants should be clean hole free and fit comfortable they should not ride up , pinch or be tight , if too long then fold into cuffs at the ankles or ask your mom to do a quick hem on them. Girls may wear pants that are loose , if the pants are tight then don’t wear them , stretch pans may be worn under dresses and long shirts .
  • Shirts should not have faces or ugly pictures on them , girls should avoid wearing shirts that have prints on the chest area as it brings attention to that area.
  • Dresses should fall below the knee and always wear either tights with dresses or short that fall below the knee, Tights should either match the dress or go with the outfit as should the shorts under the dress, young girls less tan 6 years old may wear dresses shorter than knee length as long as they wear shorts that fall past the knee.
  • Skirts should be long loose and free flowing never form fitted or tight.P11-young-ladies-dress-and-little-girls-dressskirt
  • Girls: Jilabas/ Abaya/Tunics and Kurta Tops/Salwar Kameez/Caftan may be worn over a core outfit, a core outfit is underclothes with tee-shirt and stretch pants or tights.
  • Hijab should always be encouraged , once a girl has her monthly cycle then she should start wearing hijab full time when out of house
  • Boys :Salwar Kameez/Disha Dasha/Long Kurta Shirt/Abaya/Thobes, Caftan/Jilabas / Kufies and hats should be encouraged to wear as it is more modest.
  • Swimwear should be modest: for Boys shorts below the knee along wit a tee shirt. Girls tee shirt and below the knee shorts until age 11 then swimsuit should cover from wrist to ankles with a hijab attached islamic-swimsuit-Wavy-NavyBlue-Pink-400
  • Socks should always be clean and hole free , if wearing dark pants wear dark socks, light pants light socks .
  • Shoes
    When choosing shoes always make sure that your toes are comfortable and that they don’t pinch pull or hurt your feet if your feet hurt then the shoes are wrong for you.
  • Sleepwear / lounge wear should be comfortable and modest it is ok to wear short sleeves but only in the privacy of your own house .

A word of advice if you are in doubt if something is modest then don’t wear it

A Mothers Prayer

Oh Allah give me SABER
To deal kindly when the children are testing my patience and acting like wild animals

To guide them to the straight path , and not be harsh when they are jumping off the walls and everything else
Oh Allah give me strength and gentleness , as well as a clear head to see all sides of the picture

Give me courage and strong will to always speak and teach the truth
To be able to carry several sleeping children to their beds
Oh Allah Give me guidance and Saber
And help me teach and guide my children to the straight path

Dua’a for My Husband

Dua’a for My Husband

Oh Allah! I thank you for granting me the one who is a garment for my soul
Who will satisfy half of my deen and in doing so making me whole

Make him righteous and on your path in every way
and let him sprinkle water on me at Fajr reminding me to pray!

May he earn from halaal sources and spend within his means
May he seek Allah’s guidance always to fulfill all his dreams

May he always refer to Qur’an and Sunnah as his moral guide
May he thank and appreciate Allah for the woman at his side

May he be conscious of his anger and often fast and pray
Be charitable and sensitive in every possible way

May he honor, protect me and guide me in this life pleasing Allah!

Make me worthy to be his loving wife And finally, Oh Allah!
Make him abundant in love and laughter
In taqwa and sincerity In striving for the hereafter!

O ALLAH…
Enlighten what is Dark in Me,
Strengthen what is Weak in Me,

Bind what is Bruised in Me,
Heal what is Sick in Me,
Straighten what is Crooked in Me
and
Revive whatever Peace and Love has Died in Me..!
Ameen

The prophet (SAW) said:He who remembers his Lord
and who does not remember his Lord,
are like the living and the dead.”
(Al-Bukhari) 11/208;Muslim 1/539

Mothers ARE THE ONES

WE ARE THE ONES
We are the strong women who hold everything down
From the kids, dinner and tend to the strong men when they are around
We are the beauty that keep the world spinning by the Mercy of our Lord
By carrying the next generations from 9 months to 18 plus year our time is never bored
We keep our man strong, loyal, and we are a supporter by his side
We keep him going strong and balance out his pride
We are the ones who stay strong
Even when everything around us goes wrong
So my SISTERS OF ISLAM stay that beautiful woman Allah made you to be
Be confident, humbled, and let your pious self out for the unbelievers to see
That you are beautiful through your eyes and soul
And Insha Allah we will be the ones Allah let us enter the gates that Paradise holds
— feeling blessed.

I have been stable for a while and now I find myself falling into a depression again guess that is the nature of being bipolar I’m either up or down but it never stays that way for long . The worse part about having bipolar is never knowing how my brain will react.
Any little thing can tip my mood which sucks as I never know what will and sometimes I have to ask myself am I overreacting or is this an appropriate reaction.

There are certain things I can control , like what I wear and watch other things I have no control over, like the weather and what is cooked for dinner, or how the children behave.

I feel so powerless and weak I have nothing to look forward to , I do not know when I gave up having dreams did it happen all at once or little by little? How does one loses their dreams? Can they find a dream once they have lost it?
