Salam alaykum everyone, 

Zeshan won’t be around here for around two months until the end of September. If he didn’t announce it before, he’s  currently at basic military training for the air force. You’re welcome to continue sending him messages and what not, just know he won’t be able to answer for a while (his phone is unavailable as well, just btw). 

Thanks, & I hope you all have a great day! 
the wife 


Patience isn’t easy.

Patience is tears. Patience is cringing out of anxiety. Patience is wanting to smash your fists into sujud. Patience is crying for a response from God. Patience is feeling alone. Patience is painful. Patience is taxing. Patience is clenched fists and grinding teeth. Patience is swallowing insults. Patience is smiles covering tears. Patience is so hard.

But remember, The Qur’an says:

"And how could we not place our trust in God, seeing that it is He who has shown us the path which we are to follow?’ ‘Hence, we shall certainly bear with patience whatever hurt you may do us: for, all who have trust [in His existence] must place their trust in God [alone]!’" [14:12]

Remember Who gave you the path to your salvation, have trust in your Lord, and remind yourself of what The Prophet said:

"Seek closeness [to God] and be steadfast [patient], and in all that afflicts the believer there is atonement, even a thorn that pricks him, and the hardship he suffers." [Tirmidhi]

This illuminated manuscript contains two works by Sa‘dī (d. 691 AH / 1292 CE): the Gulistān (Rose garden) and the Būstān (Orchard). It was copied in 980 AH / 1572 CE by Muḥammad Riz̤ā al-Tabrīzī in Iran.

The text of the Gulistān appears in the main area, while that of the Būstān is inscribed obliquely around the main text area on three sides. Both texts are written in black and gold nasta‘līq script.

The margins are multi-colored, gold-sprinkled tinted or marbled paper. The original leather binding dates to the tenth century AH / sixteenth CE and has dentelle-style decorated boards and doublures with gold filigree work over a multi-colored ground of blue, green, red, and black.

These images were created and are provided through a Preservation and Access grant awarded to The Walters Art Museum by the National Endowment for the Humanities, 2008-2010.

Basically working on these till Saturday. Omg.

This is why interior design in important in Islam 

This is why interior design in important in Islam 

لَتُبْلَوُنَّ فِي أَمْوَالِكُمْ وَأَنْفُسِكُمْ وَلَتَسْمَعُنَّ مِنَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ مِنْ قَبْلِكُمْ وَمِنَ الَّذِينَ أَشْرَكُوا أَذًى كَثِيرًا ۚ وَإِنْ تَصْبِرُوا وَتَتَّقُوا فَإِنَّ ذَٰلِكَ مِنْ عَزْمِ الْأُمُورِ


"You shall most certainly be tried in your possessions and in your persons; and indeed you shall hear many hurtful things from those to whom revelation was granted before your time, as well as from those who have come to ascribe divinity to other beings beside God. But if you remain patient in adversity and conscious of Him - this, behold, is something to set one’s heart upon."

- The Holy Qur’an 3:186


15 poewrful Jose Mujica quotes no other leader has the guts to say

"Modest yet bold, liberal and fun-loving."

Naming Uruguay the country of the year in 2013, the Economist may very well have described the rising nation’s head of state, President José “Pepe” Mujica.

Known for his unusual frankness, fiery oration and bold leadership to turn ideas into action, the 78-year-old leader possesses and practices the very characteristics that many world leaders fail to emulate. He has also garnered international acclaim for his progressive policies, down-to-earth personality and simple presentation, which has earned him a reputation as “the world’s poorest president.”

I love you all,
even you angry sounding teenagers.

So basically, right now, Im mainly stressing about making 2 designer bedrooms before friday.

I work for Avenue Road, I have Basic Training right after Ramadan on Eid, until september, I’ll be leaving my newlywed wife behind for a while. Then I am leaving again December to June 2015.

Im an Aerospace Medical Specialist, I will be continuing my medical career, and going back to college next year, finishing up my undergrad and then med school, along side a Flight Surgeon program. I may stay in NY, go back to WV or go to DC. We’ll see. 

Alhumdulilah and Inshallah for everything. 

I want to do more, I want to pursue a few creative ventures, blogging, vlogging, ecommerce, learning a different language, assembling a legitimate portfolio. 

Everything is happening at a surreal rate, too fast, too slow. I can’t believe things have changed, that things are good now, years off hard work, dua(prayer), and struggle are all coming to fruition. 

Im so blessed, I need to stop stressing, I want to harness all of Ramadan this time around God willing.

May Allah bless all that you do my friends, take care.
