A Beautiful Inspiration Award

I'd like to thank dear Marie, for once again sharing this beautiful award with me:

Marie's constant support of this blog, with constant positive feedback and awards is really appreciated. I pray that she always has light, joy and contentment in her life.

From Marie's blog The Colour of Our skin, I have learnt so much about diversity and the every day issues that we have to face when we embrace all cultures without discrimination. This is definitely one of the blogs that I constantly read and I'm sure if you begin to read it you won't stop as well.

Having said that... There are some rules that go with this award:
  • Copy and paste the award on your site and copy the link of the person who gave you the award.
  • Then answer the tag questions! And Don't send it back to me - this one has been made to fly away........
  • Nominate any blogs you feel deserve it.

Okay, so I've already done the 1st one, let's move on to the next one....


  1. What makes you laugh, smile or giggle? The funny things that children come up with.
  2. What are your dreams for your future? For me and my family to move away from the crazy City life and live a more quiet,wholesome life. Peace in the world. 
  3. If you are to go to a cruise, where would it be and why? It wouldn't matter where I was going, I love the sea and would be glad to go on any cruise.
  4. How would you spend your vacation time and with whom? 2 ways; 1. Going for Umrah (minor pilgrimage) and spending time in the Blessed Cities of Makkah and Madinah. 2. Relaxing on the beach. It would always ideally be with my entire family (which is very big)
  5. If given a chance, what life would you choose? Your life now or your past? Definitely my life now, I think that the past is something to learn from so that we can become better people and going back to the way my life was in the past would be a sort of regression.
  6. Is there something that you wished before when you were young but you didn’t get it? I guess there were many things, but nothing worse making a fuss over.  
  7. Have you been in a situation where you might have given up but still you chose to move on? I think I came close to being in this situation many years ago, but I was extremely fortunate to be reminded that nothing in this world is worth giving up over, and when we move on we begin to grow in ways that we didn't know was possible.  
  8. Is their someone in your life who has been your source of strength and inspiration? Yes, both my parents!

These questions were supposed to be easy but they were actually much more difficult to answer than I expected... Anyway, the last rule is to share this award with others.

For this one I've decided to keep it general and I share this award with every blogger out there who is able to inspire anyone, even in a small way. Inspiration comes in different ways for different people and just taking the time to put up posts and share thoughts and experiences is inspiring in its own, so therefore this one goes out to...



  1. Thanks Asma

    I will visit your blog inshaa Allah, I used to read it often but then a few times when I checked it said that the blog no longer exists, will have a look again.

  2. Zarina, thank yo so much for these heart-touching words. I'll never cease to support you, you are the first one who opened my eyes on the life of Muslim Women and through you I discovered many amazing faces of Love of examples of Faith.

    Hope one day you will find this peaceful and simple place to live in - I know how life in the city can be tough. Stay blessed and have a lovely day!

  3. Thanks Marie

    You stay blessed too.
