The story about the girl in blue☺
Apologies since a last few months I had not been able to keep our blog updated.
But here we are back with a special story of a #SWEAidol, Sarrah Murtaza.
Here's to the Women Power.
In her first post on our blog, she narrates her struggle from managing a family while pursuing an ACCA, and how it all became possible with the support of a wonderful pair of families.
I was moved, inspired, and so motivated after going through her testimony, and I am sure it will leave you super women inspired too!
There's definitely no stopping a super woman who decides to do something. Especially with just a little bit of love and support, anything is possible!
Today Sarrah is ACCA qualified, runs a successful restaurant in Mombasa and makes a wonderful mother to her three children.

A much awaited month,
Is round the corner,
A month of Rehmat,
A shower of blessings,
In all sacredness,
Duas for each other,💕
Forgiveness we seek.
Closest to Allah,
Nearest to Prophet's teachings,✨
Roza, Silat, Zakat, Namaz,
With faith, devotion and love,
We partake in.
The aroma of tea in iftar,
The proverbial khajoor,
Lazzat daar meal thereafter,
The preparation of namazi attire, 🌹
Rubbing sleepy eyes for sihori,
The beauty of fajr and Imam Zainul Abedin's a.s. dua.
The stretch of hours observing the fast,
But with such love for the Creator!💖
And of observing fast of all senses, too,
Planting buds of kindness in self,
To share, care and love one another.
The thrill of exchanging recipes,🍗
Pots and pans simmering,
Cut, sliced, chopped,
Blended, sauted, fried,
Iftari preparations since morning!A hot, steaming cup of uji,
Don't i just love it.
A night better than a thousand months,💚
Lailat ul Qadr, Maa Fatema ni raat,
Quran Majeed ascended from the heavens,
Quran recitations day and night.
I love the tantalising sweets and savouries sold by the vendors,🍢
Every mosque ringing with Azaan
Or extra night prayers,
The power of bihori duas,
May roses and peaches of good health shine in our cheeks,🌹
As we pray for spiritual fulfilment and answered prayers.
In thanda Saaya of Aqa Moula t.u.s. may we remain,
Ghanu Jeevo Moula,
I may have wronged you intentionally or unintentionally and for that i seek forgiveness from you.

A lot of times, we get hesitate to make du'a because we're not sure exactly what to say.
We ask around for a du'a in Arabic that we can memorize and recite, thinking that the Arabic wording is the key to the du'as acceptance.
The thing is, it's not about the Arabic.
Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala understands every language and understands you even when you don't say a thing.
It's all about turning your heart to Him with sincerity and conviction.
It reminds me of a story of a rich man, a poor man and a bedouin...
A rich man was going to Hajj. He had prepared for the journey and was ready to go when a poor man asked him if he could go with him and serve him.
The rich man agreed and they started traveling. On the way, the two stopped at a Bedouin’s tent.
The Bedouin was a generous host, serving his guests and making the comfortable. The two travelers stayed overnight at the Bedouin’s tent.
In the morning, the rich man awoke to find that the poor man had passed away in the evening. He asked the Bedouin to help him wash and bury the poor man.
Before they buried the poor man, the rich man asked the Bedouin to lead him in the funeral prayer. The Bedouin declined, saying that he didn’t know how to make du’a for the poor man.
So the rich man led the prayer. They buried the poor man and then the rich man continued on his way.
After he had left the Bedouin’s tent, the rich man had a dream in which he was told that Allah had forgiven the poor man’s sins because of the du’a of the Bedouin.
The rich man was so curious that he went back to the Bedouin’s tent to ask him what his du’a was.
The Bedouin insisted that he didn’t say anything special. The rich man described his dream to the Bedouin and asked him again to tell him the du’a.
The Bedouin told him he just said, “Oh Allah, this man was my guest and I was generous to him. Now he is Your guest, so please be generous to him.”
It wasn’t an extravagant du’a but it was the sincerity of the du’a that made it accepted.
With best wishes to see you succeed at the highest level....

Whatever happens is by the Will of Allah, whether it be good or bad. Sometimes we forget Allah when it comes to happy moments, but immediately turn to Him for the bad. We should always be thanking Allah (SWT) for His infinite blessings, even in the tough times. He still gives and gives and we don’t even ask. The mercy of our Lord is beyond.. Subhna’Allah. “Its better a calamity that turns you to Allah, than a blessing that makes you forget Allah”
Always say Alhamdulillah for everything….
