I’m still singing to him but went from Drake to an Old Indian Song 😆 And now I can’t control this big boy msA! My arms were hurting by the end of that first song!
Did you hear my daughter in the back coming upstairs shouting, “Mama! Mama, wait!” 😆 She doesn’t remember the songs I used to sing for her!
And yes the I changed the Drake lyrics to “Yusi! Do you love me? Are you hungry? Cuz you never ever leave from beside me!” 😂

#sorrynotsari This sari might have to go! 🙈 You guys! It’s time for me to tackle and declutter my overwhelming closet. Why do I have so much stuff? Well, here’s my excuse:
I’m a Muslim, Pakistani, working mom who is also currently nursing a baby. This means I have casual outfits, work clothes, formal dresses, desi casual wear, desi fancy wear, maternity clothes, head scarves, long-sleeve shirts, abayas, other layering items and what not! And I experience all four seasons very distinctly here in Toronto so weather appropriate clothes are needed. I mean... the struggle is real! Trust me, I’m not a shopaholic. Especially not when it comes to clothes.
For about two years now, I have been hogging the master bedroom closet entirely. I moved my husband’s stuff into the office room 😂 I want to really change that and keep only the items that I use and love. Let’s see if I can have my husband move his stuff back!
If you have any solutions, please do enlighten me in the comments!
Join my Declutter Challenge on my Instagram Stories. Just in January alone, I’ve done 20 days of 10-15 minute declutter activities and that has made such a big difference in my house already. Looking forward to these last 10 of the 30 days. And if you participate too, don’t forget to share your pictures / posts/ story clips with me using the hashtag #anamsdeclutterchallenge . I’ll be re-sharing ❤️ Let’s do this! 💪🏽

“You are so lucky, Anam!” Someone once said to me. “You don’t have student debt because of scholarships.”💰Lucky? 😑 Anyone who‘s received merit-based scholarships knows that it takes work and dedication to win and renew them. But for some reason, people’s first instinct is to believe that things comes easy to others. I was kind of disappointed by the comment... but then I thought - hey! As they say, “luck” is what happens when preparation meets opportunity. I’ll take that definition.
During high school, I used to work part-time at a coffee shop - twice a week after school & on the weekend. I would sometimes bring my textbooks with me and place them right beside the drive-thru cash register. Whenever we’d have these periods of lull at the shop, I would sneak in some reading for my biology or history test. During breaks, I would work on my calculus homework. My papers would sometimes get coffee stains 😄 It didn’t interfere with my work so my employer and super awesome coworkers were cool with it. Plus I think everyone likes a student who is genuinely making an effort.
I worked hard and was therefore able to apply for scholarship opportunities when they came up. And alhumdulillah, I went through university without financial stress. I’m here to tell you that nothing comes easy, but hard work and dedication can take you places. Prepare yourself to the best of your ability for whatever it is that you wanna achieve. Then you can get “lucky” when the perfect opportunity presents itself. It might just be around the corner! ✨

That Abdullah bin Omar is satisfied with them, tell him that the messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said the Muslim brother of the Muslim, he does not remain and does not deliver him, and On the day of resurrection, and who will be a Muslim.
Narrated `Abdullah bin `Umar: Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said: “A Muslim is a brother of another Muslim, so he should not oppress him, nor should he hand him over to an oppressor. Whoever fulfilled the needs of his brother, Allah will fulfill his needs; whoever brought his (Muslim) brother out of a discomfort, Allah will bring him out of the discomforts of the Day of Resurrection, and whoever screened a Muslim, Allah will screen him on the Day of Resurrection.” Abdullah bin Umar (RA) narrated that the messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, " the Muslim is the brother of Muslim, neither does it injustice to him, nor will he refer to the unjust, (that The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, " the one who is in the concern of his brother's needs, Allah will fulfill his needs, and whoever removes his misfortune from Muslims, Allah will remove from him the calamity of the day of resurrection, and If you want to be a Muslim, then you will be able to hide it on the day of resurrection. [Sahih Al-Bukhari, Book of Oppressions, Hadith: 2442]
Chapter: A Muslim should not oppress another Muslim
In the process of attaining any goal in life humans often start relying or depending on their own strengths while forgetting the fact that Allaah (Himself) is the SOURCE of everything you’re trying to attain in this life and the next. So, don’t depend on yourself. Don’t depend on people. Depend on Allaah.
