Islamic Dua against calamity.

Today I wanted to share with all of you a beautiful but mighty dua/verse to help all those of you in times of distress. Inshallah, recite from the heart and surely Allah swt will answer. Not only do I believe in answered prayers and miracles, but my youngest son’s birth as well as the fact that my husband is alive today, is nothing short of a very very large miracle. So please keep the faith in Allah swt and recite from the heart.

Victory Heights Craft Fayre 2011

Like I said in my previous post, the fair season is running in full swing. People are holding craft sales in their homes, coffee mornings are hosting table sales and what not. Today we attended the Victory Heights Craft Fayre at the Els Club. It was my first visit to the club and I loved the beautiful lush green grass and the gorgeous golf course was mind blowing. The club ofcourse, was rather small but there was alot of festivities in the atmosphere, with kids playing around, residents and visitors enjoying the many colorful stalls hosting a good variety of goods/products.

Most of the vendors were nice enough to allow me to take pictures. And here they are for those of you who were unable to attend this small but lovely  fayre :-

Market Day at Arabian Ranches 2011

We have already entered the fair (events) season, with the first one being the Arabian Ranches Market Day which was held on the last Friday of October. I was participating in the popular Arabian Ranches Market Day, last year, but this year, my schedule was too tight with the inlaws visiting us from Saudi and all the transformations I am working on at home presently.

 As always the Market Day was excellently organized.  We spend a lovely afternoon finding some amazing stuff and enjoying all the activities organized. Not only did we have over 100 stalls selling clothes, shoes, decoration items, cds, electronics, toys, books, games,  furniture and heaps of many more things, but we also had stalls for games, face painting, rodeo rides and ofcourse tons of more activities. I managed to click a few lovely photos which I am sharing here.  As a community, Arabian Ranches, always amazes me with friendly and mostly helpful residents.

Needless to say, I bought myself a heap of lovely stuff from the table top sales !

 

 

Halloween in Dubai ??

  1. What IS with Halloween ?? I mean, celebrating the devils / demons / witches !! And all in the name of calling it childish costume parties ???
  2. If a muslim man/woman wishes to carry out any of his religious practises in a western country, he is easily targetted as being anti-democratic ! However the very same westerners bring and introduce these weird practises here and we are to just accept it ??? As a muslim, I find it appalling.
  3. As an artist, I am even more appalled, becoz Whats worse is the thorough lack of creativity involved ! I mean, if you look around at the Ranches decorations, its really pitiful. Seems like everything is clearly just bought off the Le Marshe shelves. Sad.

Sharing with you’ll the ghastly celebrations !
