    what a gorgeous video! i could study each picture for hours. if time didn’t exist. in which case “hours” would be utterly meaningless. but “gorgeous” remains forever!

    If you want any of them (or even all XD), tell me which one, and I can send you them!

    i believe in a walk across Waterloo Bridge as a cure for low mood too! It’s nice to appreciate London and the Thames in between the bustle of city life

      I love your picture. It is the best thing ever and I want to eat it.

      Cupcakes JUST MAY be more potent than a walk across Waterloo Bridge.

    This is hilarious! You’ve been blessed with a light sense of humor, and Masha’Allah your blog is just awesometacular. I came across it today while skimming through Abu Eesa’s facebook page [someone posted it as a link–not sure if she’s a writer for this blog or perhaps a devoted fan who’s payed to advertise for you…Hmmm (?)] and I think I’m hooked! 🙂

    I’m sharing your “Rant” about Skinny Jeans with all my friends. Who knows–Maybe it’ll disengage them from their strong interest in skinny jeans and leggings and such…

    Jazaakum Allah for putting a smile on my face! This “About Me” really brightened my day, Alhamdulillah.

    Salaam ‘alaikum and jazakallah khair! I bet it was Celine Dion, right? That gets people every time.

    (‘near…far…whereeeever you are, I believe…that my fart will…my fart will….go oooOOOOoon’ etc…tell me that doesn’t crack you up. Especially if you’re watching that silly film XD)

    Ah, AE, cracks me up (what the fatwa?) – which just goes to show that a little humour takes a sheikh a long way. Like this:

    I hope you’ll stick around and join in the discussions!

    (Perhaps she’s a writer AND a devoted fan. But she’s not paid. She wishes she was, though.)

      Well its interesting what some men think of what a paradisal state is like. Pretty interesting commentary of what some people’s inner desires are.

    I love the word tumblewit! I have, especially in certain crowds of people I don’t know well where I feel somewhat awkward and attempt to alleviate the awkwardness by making dumb jokes (which often exacerbates things when they don’t get them) engaged in acts of tumblewit.

    Of course my skill in tumblewit also enables me to create sarchasms wherever I go. I often tumblewit when around people I know very well, because I end up laughing quietly at whatever joke popped into my head, at which point they insist on knowing what it was, even when it references something that they do not know, or produces a mental picture that it funny to me but is difficult for them to create.

    I’m totally adding these words to my personal lexicon. I’m slightly more fond of tumblewit than I am of sarchasm, though, because I find the idea of a person doing backflips and somersaults and cartwheels while telling joke that only one person in the room understands pretty hilarious.

    You really are not a nice person! you may seem that in your writing but your heart is not pure and God knows it!

      If someone sees darkness in another it might be better to pull the log out of one’s eye instead pulling the speck out of another. To claim someone is impure and not nice really isn’t having an open heart and truly trying to understand who a person is. To truly love is like an abundant ocean it ebbs and flows in constant motion. To carry all the aches and pains condemning none but bearing them without complaint. Stay in Peace and Compassion!
