Bismillahir rahmanir raheem
InshaAllah, I’ll be rebranding my 5 Favourite YouTube finds by calling them “My 5 Favourite Things” to include more variety like blog posts, actual recipes, instagram posts, pictures, pins from Pinterest etc. I hope you’ll all like the new content. If you’re featured in the 5 Favourite things, I’ll link back to you and we can connect 🙂 Let’s jump into it!
I’m ALL for simple suppers. I work 9 to 5 so when I get home and both me and my husband are hungry, we don’t want to wait hours for something to be cooked and on the table. This Simple Tuna Pasta recipe from Gennaro is perfect. All of these things are already in the cupboards and it’s easy to make extra for lunch the next day!
My favourite picture this week comes from something I found on Facebook posted by a dear friend of mine. It perfectly sums up how we as women should elevate ourselves to the rank that Allah swt intended. If I find the source, I’ll link it down below inshaAllah.Dear Woman
The first Instagram feature goes to Muslims of the World. An account I came across a few months ago and mashaAllah I’ve loved it ever since. It shares the stories of Muslims and takes submissions too. This was one of the favourite posts from them this week.
I’ve been looking for the perfect granola recipe for a while now and I think this may be it. I’ve previously bought and attempted to make my own but they never seem to hit the spot. This one from Pinterest created by Lovely Little Kitchen may just be the sweet treat that I need!
For my blog feature this week I’d like to take this opportunity to say Alhamdulillah and JazakumAllahu khayrun to the lovely ladies over at Muslimah Bloggers. I’ve been nominated for the Most Inspirational Blog award over on their site and I couldn’t be happier. I don’t know who nominated me but may Allah swt reward you.
Voting ends August 31st and you can follow the link to take part. You don’t have to be a blogger to enter so get voting!
You can contact me on social media Twitter, Facebook and Instagram if you want to feature your post in next Friday’s Favourite Things by tagging me in your posts by using either #ChristalBlogs or @christalblogs or if you just want to say hi!
Wasalaam – Peace Be With You
