Drapes, diamentes and exquisite cloth, this simplistic monochrome abaya by La Femme Abaya Collections is an absolute gem..

I love how the design is timelessly elegant, you could wear it to any occasion and be smugly content knowing you look great.

Yes, hearts will break.

Death is the only certainty in life

My dear grandma passed away.
I cannot believe it has almost been a week since she died…

A simple, quiet old lady, when she’d glance at you it wasn’t a mere glance, rather a piercing searching gaze.

I stayed by her bedside in the hospital in her last days, reading Qur’an, supplicating… I was there when she breathed her last…when she read the shahaadah…words cannot explain the tranquility I felt hearing her proclaim her Eman.

May Allah have mercy on her and bestow her with al-Firdaws – Aameen
