alhumdulillah april

Things I said Alhumdulillah for in April 2020…

Alhumdulillah means “All Praise is due to God” and are the words uttered by a Muslim when he/she is expressing gratitude to Allah. I find myself saying this numerous times a day and this post is a collection of moments when I have said Alhumdulilah during the past month.

Things I said Alhumdulillah for in April:

  1. Baking brownies for the first time and having them turn out to be absolutely perfect!
  2. Taking in the fresh air in the balcony.
  3. The sterilisation lockdown here in Dubai is still very much in full swing, and UAE is taking all the necessary precautions to protect it’s residents from Covid-19. I don’t think I would feel safer in any other country than the one I am in right now.
  4. The spirit of every coming together to support each other in various different ways, especially those trinkets of resources being offered to help entertain the kids. I could name so many, but here’s a little something that we got involved in ourselves. The solidarity is what’s keeping us going.
  5. Getting a surprise delivery of craft items by @shakeelgroupae!
  6. Getting a surprise delivery of Kripy Kremes, ordered by Mr Z!
  7. The smell of freshly rained upon earth.
  8. Those 2-3 hours in the day that Little Z naps. Life saver!
  9. Teaching Master Z how to do Wudhu and pray using the My Salah Mat.
  10. Cooking and trying new recipes with Mr Z! (Yes, can you tell our Quarantine time mostly revolves around food…:P)
  11. Mr Z getting creative with the camera and shooting a little video starring our boys!
  12. The start of Ramadan 2020! May Allah shower his blessings and mercy upon us all during this month.
  13. Being made a Johnsons Brand Ambassador! It is an absolute pleasure. Here’s the first video I created in collaboration with the brand, if you fancy having a look…It’s my Energy Date Balls recipe that Master Z and I made together. Enjoy!
  14. Praying in Jamat with my husband.

These are just a few of the many times I uttered the words Alhumdulillah this month. Check out what I was thankful for last month here. Also, here’s a list of what I was thankful for in April last year! What are you thankful for? Feel free to share your moments in the comments section below.
