alhamdulillah, we have reached the eleventh fast today. the ten days of mercy have ended and we have entered the days of forgiveness. the Prophet Muhammad (saw) would seek Allah's forgiveness and turn to Him in repentance more than 70 times a day. subhanallah, imagine how much istighfar (repentance) we need to do!

No-Machine Nutella Ice Cream.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

So, Nutella. Thoughts?
I'm going to be honest with you guys and confess that I wasn't a fan of Nutella until about a year ago. Shocking, I know. Up until then, the only chocolate spread ever to grace my morning toast was always this one. Seriously. I would always scoff at people who dared to allow hazelnuts to contaminate their chocolate spread.

Peruvian Baked Chicken with Herb Fries + Caramelized Veggies.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

What's for Iftar tonight?

It seems that this is what we all ask each other during Ramadan. Over at the cousins, they're having kebab sandwiches and aubergine curry. The other ones are eating leftover lasagne with sweet potato fries and chipotle chilli roast salmon. And, for the other other one, it's rosemary flavoured cod and steamed spinach with feta along with more sweet potato. Today, for us, it's leftover pulaoroast chicken and mango milkshake. That's right, people. The first batch of alphonso mangoes landed in the kitchen this morning at £15.00 per box, may I add (!!!!). We will probably eat most of them as they are but a few will go into the best milkshake ever along with vanilla ice cream, milk, a little sugar and ice.

Can you believe it? The year has zoomed by and the blessed month is at our doorstep once more. Ramadan is a time to reconnect with the Almighty, to make our connection with Him better and to bring more of the things that He loves into our daily lives.

There were two doves in our garden this morning.

Choux Pastry Attempt + June Trifle + Ramadan Prep:30 May - 5 June 2015.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


{via} this week, June began. whaaaat??! how are we already half-way through the year? 
I remember a conversation I had a few weeks about how time goes so fast. we came to the conclusion that time is not going fast. instead it is us who are filling our time with useless things which inevitably decrease the blessing (barakah) in said time.
people before us had the same amount of hours in a day yet they spent them doing things which were beneficial to them in this life and the next. something to think about there.
