Winterlicious Tag! xox

Asalamu-Alaikum! Today I am going to be doing a Winterlicious tag. I know I haven't blogged recently, but its just that I've been soo BUSY! And I am going to continue with the five pillars of Islam next time Insh'Allah. Right, lets get started!

No.1) Fave winter nail polish?
Hmm, It would have to be Maxfactor nail polish in 'Chilled Lilac'. I just love this colour so much, and it does suit all skin tones.

No.2) Fave winter lip product?
For winter, my fave lip product is Nivea 'Essential Care' lip balm. My lips are always dry,so I just put this on, and my lips aren't so dry any more! Its just so smooth, and that's why I love it.

No.3) Fave winter face product?
Its the Superdrug BB cream. Its a 5-in-1 skin perfecting day cream. A BB cream is a beauty balm. And its an all on one primer, moisturiser and foundation. And the superdrugs BB cream is perfect for me. It glides on smoothly and lasts for hours. It really does enhance your skin tone.

I'll do part 2 next time Insh'Allah!
                                     Take Care, Afra

sorry i have not been blogging as much as usual, but ive been terribly busy.
Anyway, to continue, the next pillar of Islam is Zakat. This is basically the act of giving to the poor and needy. You know. Charity and money and all that. You get so much reward for doing this, SubhanAllah!
   "When you are surrounded by those who have more than you, always look to those who have less than you."  Be grateful!

The Next Pillar

The Next Pillar of Islam is Salah.(Also called Namaz). In English it is Prayer. It is the practice of formal worship in Islam. Before Perfoming Salah, one has to do Taharah (ritual cleansing) until they are purified .Salah consists of the repetition of a unit called a rakʿah (pl. rakaʿāt) consisting of prescribed actions and words. There are five daily prayers in the day, which are obligatory. The first one is Salat-ul-Fajir ,prayed at sunset. Then its Salat-ul-Dhuhr(pronounced Zoher), at midday. Next is Salat-ul-Asr, prayed at mid-afternoon. At sunset is Salat-ul-Maghrib and at night is Salat-ul-Isha. And that is the next pillar of Islam.

The Five Pillars :)

The Five Pillars of Islam are also know as Arkan-al-Islam. They are generally practised by all Muslims, with just a few differences among Shia and Sunni. They are considered obligatory by all practising Muslims.
 The First Pillar is the Shahada: the creed;The testimony of faith. When a person wants to enter Islam ( Oh yes, you really can enter Islam, even if you weren't born in to it! ) he or she has to say these words:
            La-ilaha ilallah Muhammadar-Rasoolallah. This is the shortest version of the Islam Creed.
It means that there is no God But Allah, and Muhammad is his servant and Messenger. When a person says these words, he or she is testifying in Tawheed, Pure and unaltered Monotheism. The means believing in Allah's Oneness.(Muslims believe in the One True God, and the Arabic word for God is Allah.)There is no other deity than Him, and none has the right to be worshipped, except Him. The second part of the Creed, Muhammadur Rasoolallah. This means Muhammad is the last messenger of God, and his coming was foretold by Jesus(sa) or, Isa, in Arabic.
   The next Pillar will be in the next post, InshAllah.
This is the Shahada in Arabic text.

A Poem...

Trees and sand, Forest and skies,
Provided for us in purposed supply
To render aid to Aadams seed
To nourish, nurture, and satiate its needs
Guardians we are, entusted its care
In tandem we live like a symbiotic pair
All of this beauty is heaven sent
so lets protect our....
Asalamu-Alaikum, lets enjoy the sunny weather! xx

A story....

AsalamuAlaikum everybody whos reading this blog post!
      You all know Im an aspiring writer, and recently I wrote a story, about drink driving ,which is loosely based on real life personal experiences. Its called HAPPY EVER AFTER, and Im gonna wite the first paragraph down below. So here goes.

                                           HAPPY EVER AFTER.
It was on the 2nd March 2005. I hadnt known what was going to happen. If I did, I would have done something. I wouldnt have let him drive.
  It was my older brother. I loved him dearly, and we had fun together.That  morning , that fatal morning, he'd just got his driving license, and was in a good mood. I remember.....

I gave it to a teacher at school, and she loved its so much! She actually asked me to type it up and publish it on the school website! Wow, I just cant believe it!
          OK, got to go now, HudaHafiz, let me know if you'd like me to write the next bit! :)
