The last few weeks have been busy busy busy, and combined with a cold and a snotty toddler it’s been a perfect recipe for business burnout.⠀
But on the days I am struggling through my to do list and lose sight of all the benefits of self employment I just remind myself I am able to stay in bed most mornings as long as I want, book appointments at literally any time of the day, and rarely have to drive during peak hour 😂 ⠀
What's your favourite perk of working for yourself⠀

When visiting with my aunt for Eid today, she shared this DEEP and beautiful verse from Imam Zain-ul-Abedeen’s Dua of Arafat. Thought I’d share here. Below is the commentary for the line: “change not my name”- it was one that we couldn’t understand the meaning of, but this commentary sheds light on it nicely.
The commentator offers three possible interpretations:
Remove not my name from the register of the felicitous, writing it in the register of the wretched
Change my name not for the worse, after it had been an elevated name Change not the name by which Thou hadst named us before (alluding to the Quranic verse: “He named you Muslims aforetime and in this (22:78).” The meaning this becomes: Name me not an unbeliever after Thou hast named me a Muslim.” My aunt then pointed out that it’s beautiful how Allah (SWT) highlights where we could be going wrong, but thereafter shares His mercy and provides hope. As someone who’s been struggling with Hope lately- with all that’s happening around the world- that piece of knowledge brings peace to my heart, Alhamdulillah 🙏🏽 knowing that Allah (SWT) let’s us rise in Love with Him with everything we face. آمين
Eid Mubarak to you and your families. May the family names we carry be continually written in the book of Good Deeds
