Once Upon A Eid.... at the home of Team Rahim!

It's just so awesome inshaAllah gives us just what we need, when we need it.
And with Once Upon A Eid, the timing could not have been more perfect!
We were wondering about how we would decorate this year, and we were blessed with the opportunity to review these wonderful decorations from a beautiful online store called Once Upon A Eid! The website is here!

 It's so important that we get our children excited about the blessed month of Ramadan. Before decorating we talked about what Ramadan means and why it's so important.
The boys, my husband and I ..opened the box together and got super excited ! Wrapped beautifully, just enhanced our Ramadan decorating excitement mashaAllah alhamdulilah! I'm really thankful we were blessed with this opportunity to review such a great way to bring extra excitement in our home.

Why is decorating important?

1.) we are making memories
2.) getting the children involved at home
3.) showing them that because they aren't fasting, doesn't mean they can't take part in Ramadan 
4.) creating traditions that can be passed on
5.) and Ramadan is only once a year... Do it exciting, do it fun, and do it together

Lights, banners, decorations for many occasions mashaAllah! Take time to please support this wonderful sisters business and really, I'm thankful that this is available for us!

 We are doing more decorations alhamdulilah... Ramadan countdown to Eid, lanterns from the ceiling, balloons and hanging up our Ramadan artwork inshaAllah!

What are you doing to welcome Ramadan in your home?

The Passing Of A Prince

One month later...  If you would have told me, that I would be eventually blogging as a widow, I would have probably said that I couldn't imagine it!

Well here I am, writing as a widow. My husband (may Allah have mercy on him, and grant him jannah ameen ameen) passed away last month, December 20th, 2016, from complications from his condition.  My whole life changed and I am learning to heal and process this tremendous loss with our six children.

I met my husband in 2006 mashaAllah, and as I like to tell people, I started this adventure 10 yrs ago when I met a Prince from Kings County (Brooklyn NYC) married him, and became his princess alhamdulilah. When we first met, I felt like "wow this handsome guy, I cant believe he is even giving me the time of day." Lord knows I am thankful for all the time of our days, our road trips, and adventures.

I think of an old status message I shared on facebook
" I've dedicated ten years of my heart to this loveable adventurous g…

5 Ways To Love Your Husband MORE

I had to blow the dust off the blog tonight, as I only write when I am feeling inspired. SubhanAllah, tonight feels like a good night to share a few thoughts on the blog.
How can you, love your husband more?


1.) Speak words that will uplift his spirit. I remember when I would be feeling nervous, and anxious about some event, and my husband (may Allah have mercy on him, ameen) would say encouraging words, that made me feel like the most confident woman in the world. We have the ability to be that voice of encouragement in our mates lives. What mountains we cannot move, when our spouse speaks life into our being! Through out the day, speak to your mate in a way that will help them be better. 
2.) Put your love into action: Yes you can say "I love you" all day long, but adding to that by doing loving gestures, show and prove what we feel inside. Surprising our spouse by writing a love note, or sending a loving text, adds a little more joy to their days. In a world where there …

As salamu alaykum To The Struggling Wife

As salamu alaykum to The Struggling wife....





You are the heart of the home. You are his support, his cheerleader, and he needs you to be by his side. Do you know how important you are to him and to your home?

You are worth more than you know. It may not be said often, but without you... Life would be a little more difficult.

I know you're struggling right now to be a better wife and I know you want to do better. Don't put too much pressure on yourself.

Keep asking Allah to guide you in becoming a better wife. Realize that you have a lot of worth and your husband knows it, he married you, he knew you were the woman who could make his life better.

Write down what you can do to make your marriage better and focus on that daily. He put you with this man, that you love, that you decided to marry. You made a commitment, and you said "I am his committed helper." so keep going! Yes it's not always easy, sometimes you want to leave... But you are a strong, praying woman. …
