To My Mother


You carried me for nine months.You prayed for me for seven years. You always had hope, That one day I would arrive
You taught me how to love, smile and hug. You taught me how to think, rationalize and live. You were and still are my first teacher of life
My Bestfriend, guidance counselor, my rock. Through my childhood you stood beside me. Through my single years you stood with me. Through my pain you gave me comfort. 

Now in my married years you stand beside me. You give me your wisdom and experience of your success as to help me with mine. 

My rock, the one that always has the right words. I Love you Mom

Without you I wouldn’t be who I am

One day doesn’t justify the years of sacrifice and love that you have and continue to give. No words can explain the love and appreciation I have for you.

So I say humbly

Thank you Mamie, I love you Mamie Insha’Allah I have many more years to show you how much I appreciate you.
Happy Mothers Day

I Love You, You will be Missed!


This post is dedicated to my second Mother. She was my mother while I was in the military. When I couldn’t go home her and her family took me in as one of their own.

She comforted me, counseled me and showed me love, This woman touched my heart and soul and my only regret now is that I didn’t keep in touch with her or her family.

The day before New Years she passed away, she was battling some medical issues. Finally Allah (SWT) called one of his Angels in order for her to be at peace and not have any more pain.

I Love you Mrs. B.T. You will always be in my heart. I am so sorry that I cannot go to your funeral, I am sorry that I never called you mom through out those years. I’m sorry I didn’t keep in touch.

I hope now you see in my heart and know that I have never forgotten you and your family. I love all of you and I will be eternally grateful for all the love and kindness you all gave me.

Insha’Allah you are in Paradise singing in Allah (SWT) choir with that beautiful voice that you have. I miss it plenty.

I Love You Mom and I Miss You!
