Al Adab Al Mufrad - Makki Masjid Manchester

AssalamuAlaikum, I finally have some free time to post after my Real Deal exam. Alhamdulillah.

I'm very glad I sat the exam, I was very close to not sitting it, Maymoonah was very unwell last week so I wasn't able to revise much and felt stressed about the exam.

Alhamdulillah the Sheikh (may Allah preserve him) reminded us in the final online revision session that we are not learning for an exam but to please Allah. SubhanAllah its easy to forget this point.

After I instilled this in myself I felt a lot calmer, regardless of how much I had revised.

Also my 'younger' sister told me, 'Don't think of it as an exam, think of it as a knowledge assessment test!' After that, I felt even calmer. Alhamdulillah.

I did expect the exam to be case based though and felt the paper could have been more challenging, but thats not to say it was easy.... time will tell inshaAllah.

Now, the mission begins to bring AlKauthar to Manchester....

Anyway, on another note.

Does anyone here have a mother who they often clash with - because they are just too similar?

Or does your mum have friends whom you think are just a bad influence on her, nonetheless you have to smile and and bear with them?

Or do you have parents that are divorced so a visit to see your parents always needs to be a 48 hour visit - a day with mum and a day with dad?

Or is there the issue where trying to please mum means displeasing dad for some reason, and vice versa?

Well Alhamdulillah apart for the 48 hour visits a lot of these issues are past tense for me, here is why....

Oh and for those of you who do not have these problems Alhamdulillah, there is plenty plenty more for you....

And.... There is a room upstairs for us mothers with babies and young children, (we often have a stash of chocolate too for after, but don't tell anyone!)

Assalamu Alaikum, sorry dear but the address was too long, and the other address had a spelling error. The blog name is the same, but the address is much easier to remember.
Alhamdulillah.

I tried loads of other names but blogger said they were all 'not available' then I typed, 'what is available then?' It even told me that wasn't available! So then I settled for this name.

Aroob means.... you'll have do do your research 'miss'

Also there is a reason but thats to come I have some Ideas for some things InshaAllah.
