Mabrook!

My scale in Syria wasn't that expensive, but it wasn't digital. And we just had it adjusted to by the same as the doctor's scale. Are you getting them in pounds or kilos?

Seeing my weight, definately makes me more motivated. I lost the weight with my first daughter and I'll do it this time, too... I'm just looking at maybe needing another month or two this time...

InshaAllah it'll work out well!

Fi aman Allah

Alhamdulillah, I slept almost normally last night (insomnia is a problem I've been having) and to top that off, my weight is starting to come off a little. InshaAllah today is going to be a good day!

Assalamu alaikum,

Eid mubarak! InshaAllah you're all having a wonderful holiday...

My husband and older daughter will get back from Syria on Thursday, but they're having a great time with family while I clean myself to death before they get back, hehe. I guess it counts as exercise, though...

I feel good about the fact that I've lost a little over five pounds in five weeks (that's how long they've been away). That's the rate I should be losing...two months or so and I'll fit back into my clothes again!

As for Eid recipes, my husband usually likes yabra. I don't think that requires a recipe, besides, it's just a little different everywhere. He said that my mother in law made aish bilbol and lots of other things this year...I'd prefer shish barak, which tastes good with ground turkey instead of beef or lamb...Since I don't have anyone around to help me cook and I'm definately not cooking a ton just for myself, I just had steak over spinach salad.

I'm going to have a late Eid party next week, though, inshaAllah with all my family and I might roast a turkey...my dad's trying to unload the one in his freezer on me...

Fi aman Allah

Assalamu alaikum,

InshaAllah you'll start losing again soon. There are so many reasons for gaining weight...

Yabra are stuffed/rolled grape leaves. Aish Bilbol are a little like lachmajin (turkish/arab pizza)--but smaller and with a different kind of dough under the topping. Shish barak is pretty much homemade beef tortellini in a yogurt-garlic-coriander sauce. They're all very common, but time consuming, recipes from Aleppo...

Fi aman Allah,

Katherine

Assalamu alaikum,

I've been plateauing...but inshaAllah things will change fast. I won't be weighing myself, because I joined the G2009 thing and have just hid my scale.

How are you doin???

Du`a' for the people of Gaza


Oh Allah, the most Exalted, the most Blessed

The ever living who never dies

The one who sustains all that exists,

In Your mercy we seek refuge

Oh Allah, rescue the people of Gaza

Oh Allah, rescue the people of Gaza

Oh Allah, rescue the people of Gaza

Oh Allah, mitigate their sorrow and grief

Oh Allah, cause a rapid relief

Oh Allah, You are the loving, the Originator, The Restorer

Oh Allah, The Lord of the glorious throne

Oh Allah, you are the Doer of all that you want

And the Doer of what we can't

We ask you- by the glory of Your face that filled Your heavens, and we ask you by the power You have over your creation-

to save the people of Gaza

Oh Allah, save the people of Gaza for You are the Rescuer of the weak and the oppressed

Oh Allah, grant them steadfastness and patience

Oh Allah, make their hearts firm and strong

Oh Allah, descent peace and warmth unto them in this bitter cold

Oh Allah, provide shelter and security to them

Oh Allah, replace the darkness of the city with light in their hearts and unto all their senses

Oh Allah, accept their martyrs and cure the injured

Oh Allah, send your mercy unto the mothers who lost their children, and the wives who lost their husbands, and the kids who lost their parents

Oh Allah, send your mercy unto the elders who bow for the glory of Your face.

Oh Allah, the most Exalted, the most Blessed

The ever living who never dies

The one who sustains all that exists,

In Your mercy we seek refuge

Ameen!



دعاء لأهل غزة

يا ذا الجلال والإكرام.. يا حي يا قيوم

برحمتك نستغيث

اللهم أغث أهل غزة

اللهم أغث أهل غزة

الهم .. اكشف عنهم الكرب..

اللهم عجّل بالفـرج..

يا ودود يا ودود... يا ذا العرش المجيد... يا مبدئ يا معيد...

يا فعالا لما يريد... نسألك بنور وجهك الذي ملأ أركان عرشك

ونسألك بقدرتك التي قدرت بها على جميع خلقك.

. أغث أهل غزة... يا مغيث أغث أهل غزة..."

اللهم أغث أهل غزة

اللهم اشدد أزرهم

اللهم أربط على قلوبهم

اللهم أنزل عليهم دفئا وسلاما

وأمنا وأمانا

فى هذا البرد القارس

اللهم اجعل من الظلام نورا

فى قوبهم ونورا فى سمعهم

ونورا من فوقهم ونورا من تحتهم

اللهم تقبل شهدائهم واشف مرضاهم

وارحم الأمهات الثكالى والزوجات الأرامل

يا ذا الجلال والإكرام.. يا حي يا قيوم

برحمتك نستغيث

آمين

Hmm, no posts here in about two weeks...

I'm a Muslimah. Just joined the forum today. Good to know there are some other Muslims on the site.

Working on losing weight and doing ok so far. I live in the US. I had no idea scales could be so expensive in other countries. Another thing I take for granted.

(((jahjah))) May Allah help the people of Gaza.
