Asalaam O Alaykum!

Sorry I haven’t posted for a while now, I’ve been super busy with school and an online English course I’ve taken, Alhumdullilah Ala’ Quli Haal (All praises are upon Allah in every state) .

So my favorite season is here! I love Autumn with all the crisp colors and the transition from greenery to fiery reds and oranges. SubhanAllah, it’s just amazing! Looking out the window I’m baffled by all the wonderful sights and sounds and I know this is only due to Allah (SWT)’s power and will.

The changing of seasons reminds me of our own life cycle; in spring the flowers bloom, in life a being comes into existence. As summer comes close, the person has reached the early stages of their life, living their youth to the best of their ability. Slowly as Autumn rolls in, the person starts showing signs of aging and less agility. Life is winding down and finally when the trees have shed their leaves and all signs of life are gone the person expires, b’ithnillah (with the permission of Allah). Sometimes a person does not even get to see all the seasons, a person can die in their early twenties or live to see a hundred, Allah knows best.

Weekend class

The reason why my blogging will be slow is due to the fact that I am an assistant teacher at Manar Al Islam classes for youth, which is held at Al Huda over the weekends. Yesterday was my first day with another sister teaching 8-9 year old boys. Might I add, they’re a quite a load to handle but Alhumdullilah very fun to teach!:) We covered the basics, talking about Allah and His attributes and group discussions, many of the kids were participating and had very good answers prepared.

With the Taleem Al Quran finishing in two months or so things are becoming very busy, which is why I will try to frequently update my blog but if I’m missing for a week or so, I’m likely studying for tests or doing poem critiques.

Speaking of poems, here’s a Haiku I would like to share which is quite deep:
