Bismillahir rahmanir raheem
I love snack bars, granola, cereal you name it, but I hate buying them. I’ve been trying to find the easiest granola bar recipe that I’ll be able to whip up on a a Sunday ready for the rest of the week and I think I’ve found it! These granola bars from Emmy Made in Japan look easy, tasty and cheap to make. Just because Ramadan is over, it doesn’t mean we should start slacking and going back to our old, eating habits.
Let’s talk salads. During Ramadan I really got into salad. They’re healthy and can be made with pretty much anything you have on hand in the store cupboard and fridge. In some cases you don’t even have to use lettuce! This salad recipe from Laura Vitale is perfect for lunch or a dinner served with some nice crusty bread, olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
The Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:”There will come a time when holding on to your Iman (belief) will be like holding on to hot coals” [Tirmidhi]
Why would someone hold onto a hot coal? Wouldn’t it be excruciatingly painful? We as Muslims know, everyday it gets harder and harder for us to hold onto our deen in this duniya but, what Allah swt has promised us is much better than this world and everything in it. Check out this amazing reminder from The Merciful Servant.
Just as bad food habits may slowly start to creep in after Ramadan, so may bad character traits that you’ve tried to weed out during the past blessed month. Not only does this little clip teach us how the Prophet (saw) and we should treat those with disabilities, and just as importantly how the Prophet (saw) used to react to those who insult others. May Allah swt forgive us and grant us the company of the prophet (saw) in Jannahtul Firdous, Ameen.
Does Allah swt need our prayers? Why do we pray? Listen to Sh. Saad Tasleem’s reflections on Ayah 44 from Surat ar-Rum.
