It is one of the best days of the week. Not to mention in the beautiful and sacred month of Ramadan. Talk about triple blessings!. SO thankful to the almighty for allowing me to see this beautiful month. I enjoyed the company of the believers while we fast and listened to the beautiful khutbah (Lecture). So much many wonderful things were discussed during the lecture. One being the importance of the Quran, abstaining from worldly affairs, music, bad speech even after a day of fasting. This month is the 9month in the Islamic calendar, and can be compared to rebirth of self.
Ramadan always come at the right time. Just when God knows the soul needs it. I thank the almighty for allowing me the honor to see the first Friday in the blessed month of Ramadan. Stay loved and focused God willing 25 more days to Go, and I am ready for every second of it!
give yourself love. you are worthy and deserving. spoil yourself, look at yourself and the mirror and get lost in your beauty. why do people mistake mistake self-love for being vain? Understand that loving yourself is a necessity, because if you don’t than who exactly will? Some people can mistake self -love for being self-centered or vain. because a person has a million post or pics about themselves or likes to look good or flashy, does not necessarily mean they are vain or want attention. They just understand that they are special and choose to love themselves as they should. Do not let anyone ever deprive you of loving you or make you feel less than what God created you to be. everyone is a star in there own way. some just choose an know how to shine that miraculous light God has given them.
