The blessed month of Ramadan begins from tomorrow inshallah.
RAMADAN MUBARAK EVERYONE !!
May Allah(سبحانه وتعالى) accept our Siam (Fasting) and our Qiam (Taraweeh prayers). Ameen.
The last year during Ramadan, my baby girl was a tiny newborn, just six pounds in weight and like a minuscule. Mashallah she is now an active crawling baby who loves to keep her mama on her toes all the time. What an year it has been alhamdulillah. Motherhood has taught me a lot. The first and foremost thing is patience. A mothers job is most challenging, and so rewarding at the same time. Indeed Allah has given so much importance to a mother that it is said paradise lies under a mother’s feet ! Subhana Allah !!
With this it is yet again time for me to announce the Season IV of ‘The Hyderabadi Ramadan Food Festival 2012′ on my blog. May Allah SWT shower mercy upon us, make it easy for us all, bless and forgive us all inshallah, Ameen.
The logo for the event is as follows:
