Mar, you're the first one

My sister got married today. I talked to her afterwards, well - more like screamed for joy at the top of my lungs over the phone to the point where miscellaneous relatives and guests (who could hear me apparently) started questioning my sanity. It hit me pretty hard, my sister being married. She's the first one out of all my siblings to be married. I was really happy, I don't know if I was ever as happy as when I talked to her. It was basically a big cry-fest. It made me realize so much. None of this could have happened if it were not for the Mercy and Will of Allah (swt). I mean, only He had the ability to make it happen that two people from two different continents would meet and just fit. SubhanAllah. May Allah keep them both on the straight path and give them all the imaginable happiness in this world and the next. Ameen. There's a full moon tonight - so I said to it, raabi wa rabuk Allah, My lord and your lord is Allah.

Congratulations Asmaa, to you & your family on this blessed event!

That's the Beauty of Islam uniting 2 hearts simply with the love of Islam.

May Allah (s.w.t.) bless their union

I think you should remove that shameless piece of advertising posted by 'anonymous' unless you know for certain it's not a hoax...as a poor desperate student, I was conned into sending this evil-doing con artists money, only to find out it was all a fraud:(

Poor me:( I actually became $60 poorer;P

Fatima said...

Oh and of course, alf mabrouk to Mar and your whole family on the marriage!! You'd better have a big party in Toronto to celebrate:D

Sumayyah's next! teeheehee..

Congratulations to your family!

It's definitely a special moment. And if one does it according to the tradition of the prophet Muhammad (may God's peace be upon him), then the blessings will be enternal (God-willing), in this life and in the next.

Asmaa said...

Assalaamu alaikum guys, thanks for your comments of support :)

As for the shrine issue...that would be total shirk.

brotherhood said...

You didn't shed a single tear, you heartless beast. So whats with the lie "cry fest"? People think youre so emotional, but you didn't even shed a single tear when they left to Egypt. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Asmaa said...

Araf, just because I didn't cry in front of you, doesn't mean I didn't cry at all. You're mean.

Asmaa said...

Dear anonymous, thanks for your well wishes. I appreciate it my dear :) And I definitely will not forget the bouncy ball - what would we do without it?!

Salam Asmaa,

Shukran for the swift reply:P! I actually almost forgot to check your blog, but just as I got comfy in bed I realized what I had not done... so I quickly rebooted the computer and here I am... today's the last class, if I'm sleepy this is why... oh my... hope it goes well inshallah... till later on today, take care inshallah, walaikum assalaam fr:)
