"Every soul shall have a taste of death: And only on the Day of Judgment shall you be paid your full recompense. Only he who is saved far from the Fire and admitted to the Garden will have attained the object (of Life): For the life of this world is but goods and chattels of deception." (Al Imran Chapter 3 verse 185)

So…it has been a very wet week….mashaAllah a lot of baraka, alhamdulillah. Been busy trying to sort out stuff that needed sorting out….hopefully my efforts would prove fruitful inshaAllah.

Still waiting on details for the course that I applied to….if all goes to plan it should arrive through the post on Monday inshaAllah…then I would know if they have accepted me or not. Make some dua for me guys coz I really want this. InshaAllah kheyr.

What is going on?
-Well one friend is busy with wedding planning…..been trying to get hold her, so if you read this before I get hold of you…call me! You know who you are! And no……I’m not in hiding… least not intentionally.
-Three others flew to Bangladesh this Friday. I hope they have a great time and come back safe to us inshaAllah.
-Another one is in France for a week.
-A few others are basking in the sun in Egypt.

Me? I am stuck in England…anxious about my course application….anxious about getting a job…..anxious about the amount of student debt I am going to acquire while studying. Owing money scares the hell out of me but inshaAllah kheyr.
Another reason I am also stuck here is the several appointments that I have. Had my follow consultation on Friday, and alhamdulillah it was good news. There is only 7% of damage in my stomach and it is reversible but only if I stick to the diet plan. I have an appointment with the dietician in two weeks (inshaAllah) to devise that plan. Two months from now (inshaAllah) I have a bone scan to review the density of my bones; people with my condition usually have a calcium deficiency which causes weak bones. In four months time inshaAllah) I have another follow up with the consultant to see how the diet is going and if I still need to be on medication.
On top of that I need to sort out my student papers and that might take four weeks or so

Once I stop being anxious and get the money I am going away on holiday somewhere and taking a well deserved chill pill. inshaAllah

Make dua for me guys!
Also make dua for everyone going through hard times (I know I will be inshaAllah)

Till next time….whenever that is…..inshaAllah kheyr

Sounds like you've got a lot on your plate. Of course I will keep you in my prayers, Native.

What course are you waiting on? Post graduate study? Also, I know what you mean about student's a very heavy burden. It gets heavier every time I remember I can't go to Hajj until I repay it all. *Sigh*

What sort of a diet will you be required to stick to? Ilaahay caafimaad ha ku siiyo, sweetie.

You definitely need a good holiday.

Native, I've made a serious plea for the admission on your behalf, hon, so major duas coming your way.

I'm happy to hear of your stomach, insha'allah the damage will be reversed and the diet will be easy for you to follow. All this anxiety about admission and student loans is familiar. If it's any consolation, we may all have to give up our first born to a bank (although Firefly's motivating hajj sounds like a great idea).

Worrying about the papers can't be helping. If you ever need a second set of eyes over a polished (or not) paper, don't hesitate to e-mail them to me (it's in my blog under Me. I've worked as a writer/editor and will be happy to help.

Firefly: Jazakillah kheyr for the dua sis. I quit uni halfway through coz of some issues that I had...I am going back now with a change of course...I wanna study Med...I know...what am I lettin myself in for?

I am supposed to follow a gluten free diet, which should be relatively ok...but the problem is that I have to follow it strictly coz of all the complications I have right now. ameen to your dua sis :)

I know I need a holiday...inshaAllah kheyr!

Aya: Jazakillah kheyr for the dua walalo...'preciate it.

Thank you. lol @ givimg our first borns to the bank. The Hajj idea does sound brill though

Thank you so much for your offer Aya and may Allah reward you for your kind gesture :)
