  • Fashion Trend - FALL 2016/7

    So fashion week has come and gone for fall 2016. Like always designers gave viewers some outrageous looks that make you think, “Who would ever wear that?!” Eventually these styles will be toned down for the average consumer’s market and will be seen this fall. What is the trend this fall? Lots of reinvented retro and new designs that you will either love or hate. Take a look:

    Bell Sleeves/ Extra Long Sleeves

    image001

    IMHO, I LOVE bell sleeves! So feminine and they make you feel like you’re back in the 17th century. Is this trend practical? Of course not! Wearing bell sleeves or extra-long sleeves may look cool and pretty but try reaching out for a dip of hummus or writing, drawing, or painting wearing it. Very difficult and very messy. So this look is just a look, meant to be worn and seen in, but not to work or eat in. Continue reading

  • The Four Women of Paradise

     

    The Four Women of Paradise

    We all live our life with a goal to achieve, paradise. When we act according to the command of Allah, we are doing so with a goal in mind. If we please the Almighty then He will please us with a rewarding afterlife and moreover His love and rida (acceptance). That’s the whole point of living in this world as we know it. Those who commit suicide and believe they have no reason to live are gravely mistaken. As Muslims we know we must fulfill what has been commanded on us in the worst and the best of times. But imagine if you didn’t have to worry anymore about attaining God’s mercy and pleasure, knowing that you have achieved it in this world. Four great women did reach this ultimate goal. They all had the highest virtue, ultimate conviction, and greatest unwavering faith. Who were they? Continue reading

  • Fashion Faux Pas

    A long time ago I was visiting family during a cold and rainy winter day in Lebanon. While sitting in a room with about fifteen or so women, an older aunt commented on my clothes. “Who wears white in winter?”  She asked me. “Here in Lebanon, we don’t wear white in winter.” I felt horrified!

They would have many justifications for the way they behave.  They could lie, steal, cheat, kick animals and enjoy making babies cry and somehow they would justify their behavior.  Continue reading
