I'm sorry sisters about the lack of posts, I've been busy this week! On Saturday my family went to our Muslim family friends house. It was really fun, but we didn't get back until a little late. Then Sunday was family, but we didn't go but I still didn't have access to a computer. It has gotten a little hotter here now, but I can't complain because alhamdulilah; I've had a cool, breezy summer so far! It's just a bit humid now, and always thundering. I like thunder anyway. Insha allah I will have another All Natural Hijabi post for you all tomorrow. May Allah bless and reward us all! ~Nisa
Juma Mubarak everyone! I know the times around the world are different, so you may or may not have already attended Juma. You also may just be getting ready for Juma, or you are already there. Regardless the time, Juma mubarak! It is my favorite time of the week, I mean sincerely! I don't go for Juma (my Dad does), but I feel the excitement of it! I have done a set that I think would be nice to wear after the lecture at the masjid (orange is a bit too bright). I love how orange and black mix together. I don't limit colors like that to pagan holidays like Haloween. They are just COLORS.
Popping with Oranges

I don't know, now that I look at the colors they don't look so bright. Plus, it's only a small amount of orange. What do you ladies think? May Allah bless and reward us all! -Nisa
I love babies so much, I can describe them in one word. Adorable. Well, if someone asked me to describe babies in one word, I would. However, there's so many more words that I can describe them as. Adorable, fluffy, sweet, cuddly, cute, beautiful, a blessing, and all that mushy jazz. :) My teacher from my masjid just had a baby, and I had watched her baby grow while she was pregnant. It was so weird seeing her baby out of her stomach for the first time. The baby is beautiful (the picture to the left is not her)! I was amazed when I touched one of her perfect little toes. Masha Allah! I love babies so much!
At our masjid, there is a large community of small kids. On Family day events it gets kind of hard to control them all, but my friends & I do a pretty good job of keeping them in check. We play games, talk to them, and cuddle them (even though they aren't our children so we can't keep them! Lol). I cannot wait to get married, finish my schooling, and have myself a baby. Although, I am a little afraid of them growing up. Because when they are 18 you can't cuddle them like that anymore. Then what with all of the terror birth stories, I get really nervous. Other than my little fears, babies are such a reward. Ladies, if you have babies you should be sooo thankful! I am so jealous when I hear that someone is having a baby, but I am also excited for them too. Alhamdulilah.

All I can do for now is play those virtual "baby" games, and play with my baby doll. Lol. Insha allah one of these days I will be blessed with a little one myself. :) May Allah bless and guide us all! -Nisa
On Sunday my best friends, sister, and I had a conference. Before we began the conference, my friends & I helped set up the tables, podium, did henna (I did my Mom, myself, another girl, and Sis double you), and food. Then we talked, and had a little bit of then. When the people finally arrived, we talked about the Wives of the Prophet (saw), as I told you all before. It was great! All of my friends did their essays nicely, even my friend who doesn't speak English very well. She did amazing! This time we stood in the Musallah and spoke to the audience over speaker. Some people took pictures, and some took video recordings, alhamdulilah. Wipe the horrified look of your faces, there were no men. :P Not one, except for some sisters Husband and my friends brother. They stood outside for three hours waiting for us to finish when they didn't have to, subhanallah.

Afterwards we had a bake sale and henna art. My Mom made coconut pound cake and Patti Labelles carrot cake (I do NOT like carrot cake at all, but this cake was delicious! You NEED to try this cake! We didn't add raisins though.) My friend # 1 made home-made brownies and strawberry cake. Friends 2 & 3 made these Moroccan cookies that are made with honey, and strawberry cupcakes (she made 54!). Friend #4's mother burnt whatever she made. Friend #3 and I also did Henna Art. I had brought my portfolio, but she didn't bring hers...so she used one of my patterns. I did one little girl, and she did the little girls sister. When the conference was finished we made Asr, split up the remaining cakes among each working family, and went home. I was so tired! We were going to go to a soccer field to play soccer afterwards, but everyone was too tired, and it was too late!

As for my Henna, insha allah I will be having a Henna Art business because my customers that I do randomly really like my work. Insha allah I may also be doing Henna art for a bride at my masjid! I can't wait!! Next month we will be going to a big masjid that is a bit far away to do another conference on hijab. We are really excited about that too. We were supposed to be doing a speech on hijab at another masjid that is closer, but the sister wants us to do it in front of MEN and women. We were like, no way! So insha allah we we will see. May Allah bless and guide us all! ~Nisa
I love just a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. You can dress them up with a few pieces of jewelry, some make up, and a cute hair style. This style could also be worn outside and hijabified with a hijab and one of those really, thin shirts to go underneath.
Around the house style: City Lady

A good hairstyle for this set would be the pig tails in the picture. As for make up, a bit of grey eyeliner, dark blue eye shadow, and lash extending mascara would work well. Remember, the make up should be light. You cannot make salat with too much make-up on. You don't want to waste your time reapplying all of that, now would you? May Allah bless and guide us all! - Nisa
In todays society, some teenagers think they have the upperhand. Yelling at their mothers, arguing with Dad, getting loud when told not to do something, and ignoring parents when they are asked to do something. Subhanallah, I really hope this isn't the case with Muslim teens. Allah (swt) and the Prophet (saw) tells us to respect, obey, and take care of our parents. Mothers of course deserve the most respect, but parents are supposed to be treated kindly regardless.

“And your Lord has commanded that you shall not serve (any) but Him, and that you shall show goodness to your parents. If either or both of them reach old age with you, say not to them (so much as) “Ugh” nor chide them, and speak to them a generous word.”
Noble Qur’an, Surat Bani Isra’il (17) Verse 23

In this surah, Allah tells us to show goodness to our parents, and when they are old we are supposed to repay them by taking care of them. Being undutiful and rude to your parents (MUSLIM OR NON-MUSLIM) is one of the greatest sins that you can commit.

Narrated Anas:
The Prophet was asked about the great sins He said, “They are:–
(1 ) To join others in worship with Allah,
(2) To be undutiful to one’s parents.
(3) To kill a person (which Allah has forbidden to kill) (i.e. to commit the crime of murdering).
(4) And to give a false witness.”
{Volume 3, Book 48, Number 821 : Sahih Bukhari}

You don't have to wait for Mothers Day or Fathers day to come around to treat your parents kindly. You should thank your parents every day that you live. What if you die and you are waiting for that useless holiday to come around? You waited for that day just to thank your parents? How will you answer to Allah for it? How will you answer to the fact that you treated your parents with disrespect, but decided that you'd "treat them nice" for that day? Small acts of kindness such as doing what they ask you to do without giving them lip, doing your chores, studying hard, and helping them out are all small things to do.

You should never, ever hesitate to help your parents when they have a problem. Even when you are an adult, you still have to obey your parents. None of that "I'm twenty-one and grown now..." crap. That isn't Islam. Islam says to obey your parents, so you do it! If you disobey your parents, you are disobeying the Prophet (saw), and if you disobey the Prophet (saw), you disobey Allah (swt)! See how all of these things connect?

Your parents loved you, cared for you when you were helpless, and protected you from harm. "Blah, blah, blah," you may say. Yeah, it's the same old story. It's the same old TRUTHFUL story. Thank your Mother for enduring that pain when she gave birth to you. Thank your Dad for providing food for you. Thank them both for protecting and loving you. May Allah bless and reward us all for being dutiful to our parents ~ Nisa
This recipe for a brown sugar scrub can be used as a daily cleanser. It leaves the skin feeling extremely silky soft and looking radiant. Wallahi, your face will feel like a baby's butt! Seriously! You can also use it on your hands, feet, and lips.
Brown Sugar Scrub

You will need for a basic face scrub:
1 table spoon of Light or Dark Brown Sugar
1 table spoon of Olive oil
A wash cloth

Mix the brown sugar and olive oil together. Smear on the face and scrub GENTLY in a slow, circular motion for one or two minutes. When you are done, wash the sugar off of your face with luke warm water. Your face will feel very greasy. Take the wash cloth, wet it, and wipe off your face. Rinse your face off once more with cold water (to avoid having to do the ice treatment afterwards, use ice water), and pat dry your face with a soft towel. Moisturizer shouldn't be needed, but if you have extra dry skin applying a dime sized amount of Aloe Vera can't hurt. Let everyone feel the difference in your face. Beautiful, bright, and soft! If you have any left overs (your hands should already feel soft), use it on your lips. May Allah bless and guide us all ~ Nisa
When I was on my way headed to play soccer with my masjid, I spotted this Asian lady in my town. She was eating ice cream, and strolling to her car. She looked so cute and fresh. Not only that, but she looked half way modest. So, I decided to hijabify her cute town style.
Hijabi: Town Style

The style is so easy to do! It's fresh, slightly simply, and stylish. The Asian lady had a short sleeved cardigan on, so I added a long sleeved cardigan. How cute is that? The only thing she did not have was the necklace and sunglasses. I added those because I love long necklaces and sunglasses. As for a hijab, I would wear a pale yellow one, or the white one in the set. Or both! Polyvore is making it a bit hard to find hijabs to go with the sets, so I'll just start suggesting them here. Oh and for that little revealing part by the neck when you wear the tube tops, just drape your hijab so that it covers it nicely. May Allah bless and guide us all! -Nisa
I'm always telling someone (in a kind way) that something is haraam. Every time I turn around I'm reminding someone to sit down when they eat, not to spray too much perfume on in public, certain candies are haraam, or that skinny jeans are haraam if a long shirt is not worn below the knee (my sheik spoke on this subject, and he will speak again about it more firmly so it's not my "opinion"). I told my mother how I feel, and she said it was my duty as a Muslim to correct others when they are wrong. Well, to be honest I feel like a bossy know-it-all. I'm tired of being the one to always say something, and it doesn't feel very nice. Do any of you ever feel hesitant to correct someone for fear that they will take it the wrong way?
I think you probably all know that one of my favorite colors is pink. It goes great with my skin tone, it's "feminine" (although I try hard not to associate colors with genders), and it's such a happy color. This set looks a bit more like what someone would just "throw on" in the house.
Around the house style: Ooh pink
Being simple can go a long way, just as long as it's done right. Making do with what you have is part of what sparks creativity! I love those sneakers in the set though! Also sisters, perfume inside the house only! Wearing those tight shorts around brothers or older sons may not be the best thing to do, so opt for pink sweat pants if you can. :) The make-up should be kept to the minimum. You can't make salaat if your face is doused in make-up. So if you don't want to have to reapply your hard work, don't make a fuss over your face. Looking like this:
Is unacceptable, and ugly. D: A nice application of kohl, non water proof mascara, lipgloss, and a light application of eyeshadow is totally in. All of those can be re applied without too much inconvenience. Oh, and please don't eat my M&M's! :D May Allah bless and guide us all! -Nisa
This coming week at my masjid we are having Girls Youth Gathering. People from other masjids are coming to our masjid, and we have to speak on the topic of the Wives of the Prophet (saw). Last month we put the names of the Wives in to a hat, and picked. I had to write an essay on Zainab bint Jahsh (R.A). I finished writing it last week. I really loved writing about her, she had such a beautiful story! If you ever get the chance, please read up on her. So yeah, I finished my essay and I am to read it on Sunday. I am the MC again (well, I was elected to be a permanent MC for our monthly girls youth gathering). I still have to write up a introduction, and the "quiz" for the end of the conference on the Prophets Wives.

We will have prizes for those that get answers right. Two gift certificates for free henna that costs $8.00's and under (from my bestie and I), hand made hijab pins, and my friends will probably think of some more ideas. That's all going to be in order, but that isn't the problem. The problem is that I'm being forced to learn an ayah (or a few verses) from surah An-Nisa because it has something about Hijab in it. It's really nerve wreaking! Plus, I need lots of practice before reciting in front of people, and lets face it; my voice isn't all that pretty to listen to. Make dua for me, please!

Insha allah, I hope this conference goes well. We are supposed to have a bake sale on that day too, and we are going to be raising money for our masjid again. I think my Mom is making mini cheese cakes and lemon pound cake. My bestie and I will be selling henna art again. I love doing henna art, it's so much fun to watch people smile at what they think is so beautiful on their hands. It makes me really happy inside. Alhamdulilah.

I don't know what I'm wearing this time. My bestie and other friends had planned to dress in green & white together. I don't have anything green and white. So I'll probably wear a black dress, and add color to it. I haven't decided, but whatever I decide I hope it'll be okay. On Saturday we have last minute rehearsal, and we have to organize everything for Sunday.

Oh, and remember the speech on hijab my friends and I did? Well, we are invited to TWO masjids because the people liked it so much! Both are really big masjids! However, at one masjid we might do our other speech on Adaab, because we are getting tired of doing the hijab one over and over again. Insha allah, we'll see! May Allah bless and guide us all! ~Nisa
*Bismillah* (astagfirallah! I've been forgetting to add Bismilallah!)
I was tagged by sister Nailz for an "honest scrap", thank you my dear sister! :) I love doing tags, they are so much fun!
To do the Honest Scrap tag... Here's the deal. Tell your readers 10 things about you that they may or may not know, but are true. Tag ten people with the award, and be sure to let them know they've been tagged (a quick comment on their blog will do). Don't forget to link back to the blogger who tagged you.

Okay, here it goes...

1. I am a knitter and crocheter. My last blog was a blog about my hobby on knitting and crocheting. I won't say the name of it because the website isn't working. Shame on me, shame on me. I had a knitting magazine and everything. I guess after awhile I sort of became a bit more interested in other things such as keeping up with my Masjids community, going out with my Muslim friends more often, and just being really active. I'm more interested in reading blogs about other Muslims like me, about Hijab fashion, and visiting another turn in my life. Insha allah I will go back into knitting. I was hoping to try it today because I want to knit/crochet some things for my friends for Eid. In that picture to the right is a pair of slippers I made for myself.

2. I love cleaning. There is nothing better to me than cleaning up and making everything look sparkly clean. I can't sleep in a messy room. If one thing is out of place, I have to turn back on the light, and put it neatly in it's place. I think this really annoys my sister, but I can't help it. I feel so uncomfortable in my own bedroom. I'm really trying to stop this. Like, even if the top of my laundry bin is off, I have to put it back on. No, there is nothing mentally wrong with me...I just think I need to feel comfortable.

3. I love to drink hot tea, my Dad loves to drink tea, my family loves to drink tea. I was brought up with "tea time" as a family thing, and as a rare treat. I guess this stemmed for my love of tea. Even in the summer, I will relish a cup of steamy tea. I hope that before the summer ends I will have a tea party with my friends. At least before school begins again. Insha allah.

4. I am a full course honor student. I have honor roll classes in Math (I do intermediate college math), college level Language Arts (been in honor roll since I was 10 and my reading level was 11th grade), honors in Science, honors in Social studies, and honors in creative writing. I work pretty hard to keep my grades up, and I think it's because I really want to please my parents. Besides having a strong belief in my religion, making my prayers sincerely, being obedient, keeping my chores in order, the last thing I want to do is keep my grades up.

5. I love to read. I will read any book, any place, at almost any time. When I was younger, I used to read books all the time. I didn't even stop to go to the bath room if I had to. I would read until I were finished. I finally got rid of that seemingly bad habit. It's just the feeling of connecting with the characters, and visiting different places in my imagination. The most frequent books I read now are the Qu'ran and Hadith (I need the knowledge so that if someone is accusing me of doing something "wrong", I can let em know how it is. Hehe.). I do still read a book once in a blue, but like knitting, I've curved that hobby down a bit.

6. I am really close to my Dad. I know that if I'm in trouble with Mom (I'm close with her too, but a bit closer to my Dad), he'll make me feel better. He always does. He can tell the funniest jokes, and now that I'm a lot older...he acts more of my age. People always tell me how funny my Dad is and how lucky I am. Yeah, I know I am. :) I love you Dad.

7. I try almost everything I can to keep acne, oily skin, and extreme dryness at bay. It's not a self-esteem issue, I just love for my skin to feel really nice. If I feel that my skin is too oily, too dry, or really dirty I feel pretty out of place. My love for healthy skin is shown in my All Natural Hijabi sections of this blog. It just shows another part of my personality. It also stems from my loving to feel "girly". Lol.

8. I am extremely sensitive like my Mother. The smallest things may hurt my feelings, and it's not something I'm proud of. It's actually really embarrassing. I can easily cry if something if I feel like I am being disliked. I try to make sure that people don't see me cry, so I know that they don't know they have hurt my feelings. Usually people can tell when I've been crying, or when I am about to cry. That's the worse thing about it. When I heard about the crisis in Gaza, I cried my eyes out. Thinking about all of those babies dying...oh it was horrible. If I read a sad book, I cry and everyone looks at me like I'm crazy. If I watch a sad movie, tears trickle down my cheeks.

9. An ironic contrast to being a cry baby, I say things most people wouldn't say. For example, friend 1 thinks friend 2 is hanging out with friend 3 alone too much, is being bossed around by friend 3, and is ditching us. All friends after the number 3 agree with her. I am the only one who says to friend 2 to either bring friend 3 with her, or to not be friends with us at all cause you can't be two faced. Shocked faces, shocked faces. Now, I'm not a totally blurt mouth. I am "reserved" as my Mother likes to call it. Before I say things, I usually have to think awhile. So I don't just "blurt" things out. I just say things before they hurt another person in a different way. I also have a temper, and I won't hesitate to tell someone about themselves if they make me angry. Subhanallah. I am trying to hard to control my temper.

10. I love animals and the natural world. I especially love squirrels, bunnies, and cats. You know, the cute stuff. I have a lot of things with cats on them, and I have a lot of things with bunnies. I haven't found any things that have to do with squirrels, except that I love to take pictures of them. I love going on hiking trips, fishing trips, flower pickings, and just laying outside enjoying the sun (can't stay out too long, I get sun burn...and then immediate skin peeling!).

And that's it! Ten things about me. As for the people I will tag this time;

1. Never Ever
2. Sister Lela
3. Sister Jaz
4. Slave of God
5. Random Hijabi
6. Sister Lisa
7. Ms. Mango (cute name, huh?)
8. Bengali Heart
9. (Sorry sis, I don't know if you do tags or not, but I'm going to include you any way. :)) Canadian Hijabi/Sister Nazia
10. Anyone else I missed! :)
May Allah bless and guide us all! ~ Nisa

It sounds pretty weird, but get this; it works great for oily skin. I'm talking about the yeast for for cooking/baking. Because it dries the skin out completely, it's probably best to do this one once or twice a week. Now, when I do the face mask I use only yeast and honey. Some people add lemon juice, yogurt, or other ingredients to it. If your a cheap-o hijabi, you'd probably do better with sticking to the yeast only paste. :D Lol.

Yeast & Honey Only Paste

1. Packet of Yeast. Any brand is good, just as long as it is the cooking kind. :)

2. Some water.

3. A bowl.

4. Honey (optional)

Add a small amount of yeast to the bowl. You do not want to use alot or waste the yeast because you cannot save yeast mixed with water. One small package of yeast should last you three facials. The bigger packages last you months. Add enough water to make a muddy paste. Don't add too much water, you know when you've added too much water when it rolls off your face. Make sure that you add enough so that it isn't so thick that it can't smear on your face smoothly. If you want, add a squirt of honey, and mix, mix, mix! Mix it till you can't mix anymore!

Then smear the paste all over your face. Under your eyes, around your mouth, and so on. Let the paste sit on your face until it dries completely. I let it sit on my face until the paste starts to make my face look like it's cracking in all different directions. Don't worry, there's no pain. :) Wash the dried paste off with warm water. Once the paste is off completely, do a double wash with cold water. Dry your face with a towel, and use the Ice Cube treatment. Pat your face dry with a soft towel, and use Aloe Vera or a light lotion for moisturizer. If you want, you can use Honey as your moisturizer. Here is another recipe that uses Yeast and Yogurt only. Here is another one with Lemon and yogurt.

Do NOT store left overs. It ferments and smells really badly. I honestly don't like the smell of water and yeast, regardless if it ferments or not. It's still a really good mask for people with oily skin, and it's pretty cheap! May Allah bless and reward us all! ~ Nisa

Today is a rainy day. :( So I created this outfit to reflect the dramatic turn of the weather. Alhamdulilah for the rain though, it keeps the weather slightly cool. We haven't had too many really hot days this summer, and where I live it usually gets pretty hot! Allahu akbar, he answered my du'as! :D
Hijabi: Gray Simplicity
This style would be great worn to work or to the masjid for classes. It's so cute that I think I'm pretty confident that I could pull it off, the only difference is that it would be in brown though. Imagine that lacy hijab over an under scarf? Just imagine yourself in this outfit! I'm really in love with it! May Allah bless and guide us all! ~Nisa
Yesterday I had a very, very long day. It was so long, I stopped paying attention to the time. First, after Zuhr prayer, we went to a barbecue's with two family friends (I mean, two other non-related families). The park was overrun by six (including me) hijabi teenagers, and a bunch of little kids. Haha, it was so much fun! The only part I didn't like was when I was trying to get the soccer ball from my friends little brother, I tumbled head over heels on the grass. Then, I sat up and saw some other non-Muslim family staring at me like I was crazy. I simply burst out laughing. Thank goodness for my lovely sense of humor.

So, after my friends and I ate the typical barbecue (hot dogs, cheese burgers, BBQ chicken, salad, potato chips, a big cake for those who passed the school year, and some soda's) meal, attacked the playground (parents were giving us dirty looks), and almost killing the ducks (I fed them bread, and my friend A [you know who you are A!] told me at the last moment that the police came one time while they were feeding them, and said that they could make them sick!) we went to go make Asr, and then to the soccer field. The girls and women thought that they were going to play soccer, but the men ended up hogging the field and game. So, my friends and I (including another friend who came out...which makes 7 teenage hijabi's) wandered off to eat more potato chips. Until, dun, dun, dun...one friend had a major idea.

Friend (point to deserted net): "Eeyyy...I know what. Let's go play shoot out."

Me (stuffing down chips): "Uh? Whassat?"

Friend 2: ">:|"

Friend: Come on! Pleaase!!

Me: What?

Friend (all the while tugging at my arm): "Let's go play shoot out. Get the ball, come on!"

Me (sighing): "Ya allah..."

Finally all of my friends agree, and we go down to the soccer net to play a ghetto game of shoot out. It get's boring after awhile so we decide to play a twisted version of soccer with one net (ah, reminds me of elementary). Goodness, after all these years of not playing soccer, I didn't realize how lazy my playing has gotten. It took a bit a warm up to get back into the jig of it. Then, I pwned everyone with my amazing soccer skills...until A kicked me in my shin and gave me a bruise that still hurts. Ouch.

Insha allah the next time us girls will play soccer. We have good goalies, and good offenses...we should be able to have our own game too! There were too many men to be playing a semi-contact sport, so we're going to have our own game insha allah! Guess what? I'm still tired from all that running around I did! May Allah bless and guide us all ~Nisa
I have only been to California once in my life, and that was to visit my grandmother. I love it there! It's so nice, and sunny. It's also breezy, and the way people dress is so "californian". I don't want to create any stereotypes here, just want to describe something I can't explain very well with words. Hehe. :) So, this set is dedicated to California.

Bye bye NY, Hello CA!
If you have little brothers or older sons the shorts may not be the best things to wear around them. Opt for a pair of jeans or pants the same color. If you have a private pool or jacuzzi, that's where the bikini comes in...otherwise it's just for fun. :P This s style is very comfortable, and it's perfect for a work out on the treadmill...or whatever. As for a quick, cute hair do...how about the messy loopy pony tail?

How cute is that? I tried this, but my hair was cut short so it didn't come out very well. And I also did it while my hair was still wet. I ended up with no-heat curls on my tail though! May Allah bless and guide us all! - Nisa
So I have a deal with my Dad that if I learn the whole Last Juz, I will be rewarded with a PSP (not that I really want one, I want the money instead!). I am not just doing this for the reward of something materialistic, I want to do it for myself & Allah (swt)! Plus it's a big step towards becoming a Hafiza, insha allah. So, I am trying to work towards this goal. I am going to try to finish the whole Last Juz this summer. Maybe a surah a week? So this week I'm going to finish Surah Al-Bayyinah. One or two ayahs a day for one hour depending on how long the surah is.
I have learned:

Surah 97 - Al-Qadr

Surah 99 - Az-Zalzalah
Surah 100 - Al-'Adiyat
Surah 101 - Al-Qaariyah
Surah 102 - At-Takaathur
Surah 103 - Al-'Asr
Surah 104 - Al-Humazah
Surah 105 - Al-Fil
Surah 106 - Quraish
Surah 107 - Al-Ma'un
Surah 108 - Al-Kauthar
Surah 109 - Al-Kaafirun
Surah 110 - An-Nasr
Surah 111 - Al-Masad
Surah 112 - Al-Ikhlaas
Surah 113 - Al-Falaq
Surah 114 - An-Naas

Surah Al-Bayyinah is pretty easy in the beginning, but I think the last ayah's are the hardest. It's such a tongue twister. :'(

So after that, I'll move onto the next surah. Insha Allah I will finish the whole Last Juz by the end of the summer! If you want to join in the challenge just post what surah's you have learned, what Juz you are going to try to finish, and what surah you are working on. Try to blog about the next surah on the list every week, and also be sure to blog when you finish a surah. May Allah bless and guide us allah! -Nisa
