It's been so long that I don't even know where to start. I don't know if anyone is reading this anymore but it seems appropriate to draw a full circle and come write here on my first ever blog. It's been a long journey on the blogosphere since I left blogger. I've changed blogs, hosts, blogs, hosts and taken long breaks from writing altogether.

I really miss the community and friendship I'd built here but I suppose it wasn't to last. I now blog under my real name: - In fact it's fairly new and I hope it is my final blog. I've also become a twitter addict, so if you're on twitter, feel free to contact me: @hamna_

So I've been really thinking of shifting blogs now. I'd thought about it earlier too, but well, i chickened out because it seemed so much of a hassle. But I've been thinking about it seriously this time around and I've realised it's about time I did it.

Honestly speaking, I don't enjoy blogging here anymore, there is something about the blogger interface which makes it seem like a chore instead of something I'd enjoy.

No offense to Blogger though, it's served for quite a few years and the option of having the different numerous wonderful templates without hosting your own blog is a plus, but there is something about it that has becoming... unattractive. Not to mention that you have to re-add all the widgets everytime you change blogs.

So I've decided to do a fresh start, bloggers change blogs at least once in their lifetime and I haven't even done it once.

However, I'm a bit indecisive about where to shift too.

There is Wordpress - which is famous for it's clean interface but it has very limited templates. And I have a thing for templates... However Wordpress home to all sorts of people will give you a global readership.

Then there is Hadithuna - the Muslim version of Wordpress with numerous templates but a very Muslim-Only readership.

Assalāmu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullāhi Wabarakath,

There are some verses in the Qu'ran which capture your heart and don't let go. :-)

Verily, Allah has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allah's Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Quran. And who is truer to his covenant than Allah? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success.

(The believers whose lives Allah has purchased are) those who repent to Allah, who worship Him, who praise Him, who fast (or go out in Allah's Cause), who bow down (in prayer), who prostrate themselves (in prayer), who enjoin (people) for Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all what Islam has ordained) and forbid (people) from Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief, polytheism of all kinds and all that Islam has forbidden), and who observe the limits set by Allah (do all that Allah has ordained and abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which Allah has forbidden). And give glad tidings to the believers.

Surah At-Tawbah 111-112

May Allah subhan'na wa ta'ala make us among them! Ameen.

Between a crashed laptop, laziness and attempts to finish my work on time I've been neglecting this blog. [I know, I know. This happens more than it should, but whatever.]

There is something I'm not good at and thats organising myself and discipline of my nafs. Not to mention Satan does well to act on his promise by encouraging us to waste time.

I've recognised two of my weaknesses:

Fiction and daydreaming.

I love picking up a good book and reading. I can get so involved in it that hours will simply pass by without me noticing and if its an exceptionally good one - the plot and thoughts stay in my mind for a while.

If its not one thing its the other, and the time can just fly by without me getting any Qur'an or assignment done.

Argh. I guess it's a good thing my laptop crashed, having personal computers can be addicting and a waste of time. [IE- Surfing the net without cause].

But I guess disciplining your nafs is a test by Allah. And I'm hoping I pass.

Assalāmu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullāhi Wabarakath,

Lately I've been listening to Qari Tawfeeq As-Sayegh. :-) Masha'Allah, his recitation is touching and clear.

are the days I end up delaying Fajr. It weighs on my back the whole day. :-( I don't know what happens, but sometimes my alarm just doesn't go on [or maybe it does and I switch it off in my sleep] Wa Allahu aalam - but its such a guilty feeling.

And no matter how many times you pray it, if its qadhaa - it just doesn't give you the same feeling.
