Butterfly Award

I've received the Butterfly Award from one of the sweetest bloggers I know. Its taken me a while to post this because I've been a bit busy. Alhamdullillah I now have some time to do this. Dear rose water, my prayer for you is that you stay as sweet and loving as you are!

Now I've got to share something about myself....

Today all I can say is that I am someone who's always trying to make sense of the world. I tend to think way too much, and I'm not happy just accepting things because other people say it's a certain way. I need to do my research, make my prayers and have my discussions with those I trust before things begin to make sense. Today is one of those days where I'm feeling quite confused about people's way of thinking. Inshaa Allah clarity will come soon, it always does with the Mercy of Allah Almighty.

Now to share this lovely award...There are so many deserving blogs out there and I am honestly so inspired by my fellow bloggers, but I'm going to choose the following blogs for this;


  1. Congratulations Zarina!

    It's good to ask yourself questions, to think and don't accept things the way they are if they don't match the way you feel about them.
    There is not One Truth. We all have to walk our own road and find our own truth inside us and in harmony with ourselves. We don't have to follow others - it looks simpler at first sight but it's not, so continue to be you and to be proud of who you become with every day that pass.

    Prayer helps and you know it. All the best!

  2. Marie- Thanks so much, your words of encouragement mean a lot. Also thank you for the award you gave my other blog. I still have to post there and will do it soon Inshaa Allah.

    Stay well always and remain as open-minded and understanding as you are;-}

  3. Thank you sister for the award - much appreciated :), and am very humbled by your pick!

  4. Nida

    It's my pleasure, you have a great blog Masha'Allah!

  5. Assalaam Alaikum Zarina,

    Congratulations! I think Rose Water made great decision in awarding you. JazakAllah khair for passing it along. =)

    I can totally relate with what you've written because I'm the same way. I like to do my full research on a matter before reaching a conclusion. I prefer doing this to blindly following a matter without understanding.

  6. Sara

    It's my pleasure! I really enjoy reading your blog, and yes, I can see that you're someone who wants to understand things in your own way.

  7. Salam Zarina, thank you so much! It really touches me when I found out that somebody actually likes my writing and would even go as far as to call it inspiring! You're too kind!

  8. Was-salaam Jnana

    It's my pleasure! Masha'Allah you deserve it!

  9. Blue Pearl- Jazakallah Khayr sister.
