Bubbling fun day

We had a bubbling, relaxing, fun day mashaAllah! We didn't do anything special, just enjoyed the moment. Nice, little things in life.

I think it's important to learn to enjoy little things. In modern world we forget that too often.

People are busy, they run after money, success, property, beauty, fame.. And none of that actually counts in the end.

So, look around you. Forget the things you're not happy with, and the things you don't have. Be thankful for what you have. Say alhamdulilah!

Allah subhanahuwata'ala and His messinger sallallahualeihiwasallam command us to be humble. And what else can you be when you see Allah's creations, all the beauty around you!

Behold, those who attain to faith
and do righteous deeds
and humble themselves before their Sustainer
- they are destined for paradise,
and there shall they abide.
(Asad) 11:23

PS. you'll never believe, how challenging it is
to take pictures of soap bubbles on a windy day :D ..
but we're supposed to have sabr, right? :P


  1. Asalamu aliakum,
    You said it for me-- and much better, too. seriously, I came to write about something similar today- I noticed that here in KSa when the stop light turns green, literally one second after, cars start beeping like maniacs. I wonder ....why is everyone in such a hurry?

    Like you're saying, stop and enjoy the simple things, SubhanAllah <3

    Life is for living- that's what I love about your blog. You seem to really live it <3

  2. p.s. i love the 'bubbling' title <3

  3. lol we were literary making soap bubbles.. so that's from where the name came. :D i started by writing about our day but then it turned to a small 'lecture':P . btw.. i can't imagine i say something better way than you. you're so talented writer mashaAllah! ♥

  4. ^Silly Tiina. That's why I love the name.Cause you were literally doing it!!

    And I disagree with you on the rest. I win <3

  5. Asalamu Alaykum. Thank you, Jazakallah for inviting me to your blog. I only had a chance to see this as a first post. Wonderful pictures and Mashallah, mashallah the children look wonderfully happy. You are right of course. We all spend so much time dwelling on the "what might have been(s)" that we forget to be happy for what we have been blessed with.. I am hoping to spend more time in your blog, Inshallah, soon.

    Wa salaam
