Last update: March, 2020 This blog is really old. The posts are all 4 years or older. 

Before I got married, I had been a (visibly) active part of the community. Masjid-Halaqa-and-AlMaghrib junkie. After marriage, moving and babies, things changed drastically. I felt like I was in the upside down – serious iman drain. In an attempt to keep my imaan up, I started this blog. It was my virtual halaqa with me, myself and I 😀 And if anyone else happened to benefit, alhamdulillah.

I think after the 4th or 5th kid, I didn’t even have time for my blog.

If you’re a first time visitor here – most of my posts are part of a series. I usually do a series of posts on an Islamic class I took, a book I read, etc. The adult posts are cited pretty well (as far as I remember; I used to be a stickler for detail back then). The children’s Ramadan series is not cited, unfortunately. A big chunk of the stories are from Gems and Jewels, by Dar us Salaam. Some are from talks/lectures.

Most of my posts are part of a series. Click on the tabs at the top of the page to see the different series 🙂

Let me know if anyone finds any mistakes! And please make du’aa`/pray for me and my family if you benefit from this at all.

    May Allah(swt) reward you for your time and effort put into this! I agree, that the best way to learn, for some, is to read and absorb the information that way. JazakiAllahukhair sister!

    May Allah Bless u All 4 good work u r doing .Brother I wanted more literature to upgrade my Iman.How will I get such authantic sources of Islamic literature ?

    It depends on where you live…
    I’m in the US, and our family usually gets our books and CDs, etc from Dar us Salaam or whatever bookstore is closest…
    But in places like Pakistan or India (or other countries with huge Muslim populations) I’d imagine it’s much easier to get your hands on good literature.

    Jazak Allah Khairin Sister, May Allah reward your efforts and bring blessings to you and your family. We don’t realize that though we put in our effort by the Mercy of Allah, making sacrifices and staying up late nights to get these things done , we should thank Allah for granting us family members who support us in our efforts, alhumdulillah. Especially our sweet little blessings that Allah granted us..our children. They are sometimes what drive us and motivate us, Alhumdulillah!!!
    I was wondering where you live Sister?

      You’re right, sister. JazakAllah khayr for the reminder. My husband never complains when I spend hours at a time working on these sort of things. Alhamdulillah.

    Jazak’Allah for your blog, they are really nice!. While reading you Fiqh of Clothing taught by Yasir Q, I was wondering if he had mentioned any ruling about women wearing necklaces with Allah’s name/Quranic verses and whether is it permissible. Would you please let me know if he did, or if you happen to know anything about this matter by any other sheikh? Jazak’Allah

  11. ummibraheem says:

    As salaamu ‘alaykum Sr. Rubina,
    Sorry about taking so long to reply…I’ve been very busy with my children. I THINK that topic was covered in class, but I’d have to go back in my notes and see what the shaykh said. I’ll let you know if I find anything inshaAllah.

    Assalaamu Alaikum, I came across your blog while in search of notes for Yasir Qadhi’s Precious Provisions course. I just want to say JazakAllahu khairan for your notes! Not only is it extremely beneficial to have them, you’ve done a great job of keeping them organized! May Allah reward you immensely for this.
