Yes, yes, I haven't been updating my blog for 2 weeks now!! My apologies, with everything going on in my life these days I can't seem to find the time to sit still for a couple of minutes and write something. So, today before I do anything else I'll just do an entry quickly!!
I have 4 posts which I haven't published yet but will do so in the coming days Insha-Allah!! That is if the time will allow me. With Ramadaan on us my time has now become somewhat of a scarce commodity. Take Saturday for instance, my day started at 4:30am preparing something for us to eat. My children are all fasting Alghumdulillah!! After having eaten, it's time to read Quran. I have to finish my ghatam this year for once!! So I'm really pushing myself with regards to that. After Fajr I read again until sunrise. Then I made an order of cake and pies before leaving for a class that I have registered for. I'm very excited about it as Sheikh Faaik Gamieldien is the lecturer. The course he offers this time around is Usul-lul-Fiqh, the method with which our jurists extract law from the Quran and the Sunnah of the Nabi (SAW).
The lecture was very enlightening!! The venue of the course is the beautiful Masjidul Quds. It is such a beautiful mosque, I promise to have some pics of the class as well as the inside of the masjid the next time I do a post. The esteemed Sheikh has a website you may want to visit for notes on the courses he gives. Feel free to do so at http://www.faaikgamieldien.co.za/ The class finished at 12pm and then it was off to a meeting at the school my children attend. Aqeedah and Uthmaan will be going on tour with the school just after the September holidays. So far we've managed to raise more than half the fare for the both of them, Alghumdulillah!! Uthmaan has been washing cars over weekends and Aqeedah has been selling mum's baking at school as well as in the neighbourhood.
After the meeting I returned home and decorated the cake. Read more Quran till about Asr, then it was more pies and quiche to be made, there's certainly no end is there!! Nonetheless, I'm kept very busy and that's a good thing. No time for my mind to wander!! By the time I had finished the orders it was time to prepare for Boeka!! After breaking fast it was more Quran till just before Eshaa. The children and I attend Taraweegh Salaah at the masjid in the area. So off to the masjid we went. By the time we returned home the children were bushed!! Off to bed with the 3 of them. I was left to my own devices, so I, yep you guessed it, made more pies & quiche!! I rolled pastry till about 11pm, read Quran till about 12am. By the time my head hits the pillow in the evenings, sleep comes blissfully!!!
