Friends.. by the will of Allah .. for the sake of Allah! :)

About a year n halfΒ  back I came across a blog post. It was a review on the items the sister had won in a giveaway! I read the post and hit the ‘like’ button! Little did I know that that one like was a way of Allah swt to send a really special companion into my life! πŸ™‚

A few weeks/months later I found a comment from the same sister on my blog! She told me that she hadΒ  recently realised that I had liked one of her posts, so was kind enough to leave a comment on mine! πŸ™‚ MashaAllah!
Little did I know that this was not just a passing comment but the beginning of beautiful bond of sisterhood!

Weeks passed. Once my newsfeed displayed a status update by Sr.Yasmin Mogahed! Her words touched my heart and I was amongst the first to leave a comment. A few seconds later a notification popped up “Nasmira Firdous likes your comment on Yasmin Mogahed’s status”. Little did I notice that this was the same sister who was also my fellow blogger.

The same day she left another comment on one of my blog post asking if that girl was me! I said yes it was..wondering how she found out, since I use my pen name here. (For the sake of my privacy I shall not mention how πŸ˜‰ but) let’s just say that Allah has His own beautiful unexpected ways of sending in people into your life. So, this was just the beginning of a bond that truly began and continues to be loved and cherished for the sake of Al-Wadood, alhumdulillah! ❀

Over the year, we had loads of conversations! From her studies at IOU to my life as an engineering student… from the love for Allah to the love for His deen.. about life as a muslimah.. about the struggles of this dunya.. about the highs and lows of eeman and ways to get through it.. struggling through the roller coaster of life.. reminding each other of Almighty, The Wise… ! alhumdulillahi rabbil aalameen! πŸ™‚ None of Your favors I deny my Lord. Truly, all praise is only for You. :’)

She’s my most beloved sister in faith, my fellow blogger, colleague at HH (and will be my senior, incase I decide to take up the BAIS course in future, inshaAllah! πŸ˜‰ )Β  – Nasmira .. or Nasmiiiii as I love to shout out! πŸ˜€Β  It’sΒ  our long conversations about love for Allah, Islam and everything (halal) under the sun… that really made me survive the lows of eeman mashaAllah! πŸ™‚

Recently my dear BIG sister as she likes to call herself (:P) sent me a lovely gift! (As for my gift for her.. uh .. well.. all I can say is it’s not yet dispatched.. Why? well that’s another story.. we shall keep for some future post!)

Anyway, back to the gift… well.. I think I should just let the gift do the talking πŸ˜› . So, here it is



Beautiful, ain’t it? MashaAllah! Even more beautiful was the message that came with it! πŸ™‚


The illusion of this life lasts but a moment..
It’s the journey you carve that makes the path
and the destination whimsically beautiful.

When you think you’ve experienced happiness,
Just remember being given your book of deeds
in your right hand on the Day Of Judgement!

“Words are a pretext.
It’s the inner bond that draws one to another.”
And how beautiful it is when that bond is Islam
between you and me!!

Alhumdulillah, so overwhelmed reading the message! :’) Now whenever I am happy I actually think of the happiness that will come my way if I receive my book of deeds in my right hand on the day of judgement, inshaAllah! And this thought, it reminds me of my bigger goals and keeps me humble and god-conscious even in the times of happiness, alhumdulillah! ❀

JazakaAllahu Khair Nasmi for all the things you’ve thought me, alhumdulillah..! You are indeed an awesome big sister, mashaAllah! πŸ˜‰

May Allah accept your duas and grant you good in this world and next! May Allah make our friendship and sisterhood a means for us to be amongst the people who meet and part for His sake and who are granted His shade on that day when there is no shade but His! Ameen Ya Rabb! πŸ™‚

    The story sounded familiar πŸ˜›
    awww..girl!! Ameen to your beautiful dua!!
    and again, may Allah swt reunite us under His shade on the Day of judgement when there would be no other..Ameen!!

    Truly, He swt does work in mysterious ways, never had a clue our relationship would turn the way it did..
    we can never ever thank Him swt for that…never
    It makes us understand how He swt sends ppl to take care of us…despite this worldly life being such a fleeting moment …

    my painting looks good… πŸ˜›
    and that’s your hand?
    nice background mashaAllah
    and my handwriting looks ewwww…why did u take a pic of that!! 😦
    but see… I was using pen and paper after God knows how many months okay, so maybe that would explain why it was so horrible..

    and now that you complained about me not commenting on your blog, here you go.. πŸ˜€
    i’ve left a big long essay! :))

    May Allah swt shower His blessings, mercy and guidance upon us and everyone else who meet and build a relationship for His sake.
    may He swt be there with us during times of ease and hardship and help us to strive together in His path and allow us to enter Jannah together! Ameen! ❀
    Love you for the sake of Allah swt!! ❀ ❀

    May Allah ‘azza wa jal bless all our friendships for His Sake and make it a reason for receiving His Shade on the Day of Judgement. Ameen.

    I recently met a sister that became my good friend, she is my team lead at work, but we quickly became friends, and the reason why we became close friends was our faith, so she became my friend in the name of Allah.
