    assalamu alaikum,

    You guys got Abu Aaliyah to write for you, that’s impressive. Brother Abu Aaliyah I enjoy reading the articles on Jawziyyah institute, it would be really cool if you put Minhaj as-salikin up on your website :)

    Anyways welcome brother!

    Ooooh, I’m liking this template a lot (the light blue with pretty water/mountains banner in case you change it before you read this) I vote for this one :) Do I get a vote actually? I think I should :)

    Sr. Lilia, actually we took your, MR, and abdu’s voices into account in changing from the previous.

    We are very reader-conscious! Could three readers have made so much difference on any other blog? I think not!

    Alhamdulillah… a good start so far… I encourage everyone to put forward their comments on this totally unrelated post since it has headed in that direction anyway :)

    When I see scenes like these – Subhanallah!

    I remember in my youth being prompted to say: “This is Paradise” when I saw an exceptionally beautiful savannah scene. I got a scoffing answer: “You don’t know what Paradise is!”
    That is true and also what is true is that all nature has been created by Allah anyway

    Tahsinthree: The best response, when seeing something extraordinarily beautiful, is to say: “Masha’Allah laa quwwata illaa billaah!” :)

    the response
    “Masha’Allah laa quwwata illaa billaah!” is from Surah Kahf 18:39

    My earlier response is from ‘Fortification of the Muslim through rememberance and supplication from the Quran and the Sunnah’ compiled and referenced by Sa’eed Ibn Wahf Al-Qahtaani
    – page 251: What to say at times of amazement and delight – Subhanallah!

    Allah knows best
