What a lovely idea to do on Eid!
“We started this tablecloth in 2000. It has the names of everyone we’ve shared Thanksgiving with each year. Each year is a different color. I am so grateful to have the signatures of those who have left us. . . mom, David’s dad, our daughter Mary. It has scribbles of grands and special messages. Everyone signs it at our Thanksgiving and then I embroider it each year and it is quite a treasure to me. Along the edge is a key of what color goes with what year. Thanksgiving is this weekend at our house so we are ready for a new set of signatures.” ❤️

This is what it said:
“Have you not considered how Allah presents an example, [making] a good word like a good tree (Shajaratun Tayyiba), whose root is firmly fixed and its branches [high] in the sky [heaven]?”
Sura Ibrahim (14): Verse 24
Inshallah, I hope we all decorated our akhlaaq and our words in this holy month of Ramadhan to be like that of a ‘good tree’ (Shajartun Tayyiba).
I really hope you enjoy decorating this tree too, and using it to organise and hang your jewellery!
This Art Set for youngsters was made extra special with a special note that said:
Inshallah I pray that your life has been drawn out well this Ramadhan and Laylatul Qadr… and that you keep drawing with this set too!
Here’s another thoughtful gift – a wudhoo bottle to take on spiritual journeys (Hajj, Umrah, Ziyarat).
Plus a Youtube link is on there showing you exactly how to do wudhoo with the bottle!
Such a thoughtful and oh-so-handy gift 🙂
Check out this one – pin cushions! Cute, handmade and perfect for hijaabis young and old 🙂
It’s already that time of year, would you believe?!
“On one such occasion last year I found myself telling him Eid was only 100 days away…and with that came an idea so exciting that I set to work straight away. We would have a tree – it would be a learning tree, a growing tree and with each leaf that opened we would count one less day till Eid but one more inch closer to Allah. I proposed to my then-four-year-old that we would have a “99 Names of Allah Tree.”
And here dear reader, I invite you to join us! This year on the 29th of March, it will be approximately 99 days till eid.”
