Asalaamu Alaykum Readers!

Ever get bored with cooking and eating the same thing over and over again?  Ever dream of some exotic meal but couldn’t figure out what it was your taste buds craved? Well I had this dilemma last weekend and I didn’t want to eat the traditional meals I always cook.  I was craving something chut pati (tangy, spicy) so I went on Google and made three things from recipes I found.  Then I realized that all of these things can be classified as what I like to  call “Pakistani Street Foods”. Which is exactly what I said to my sister when she woke up: “Hey, we’re having Pakistani street food today!” Here are the recipes and pictures from my cooking adventure below. (more…)

In a hadith narrated by Abi Sahi al-Qudri, Jibrael (as.) came to the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلمand said your Rabb (Allah) says “do you know how I elevated your mention?” The Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلمsaid Allah the Elevated knows best about it.

Jibrael said “whenever I am mentioned you are mentioned with me.”

This is a great chicken qorma recipe which is basically chicken in spices and gravy made from onions and yogurt. It’s great for special occasion dinners or just something different you may want to try. Before making anything of course always say Bismillah-irahmaan-iraheem. In the name of Allah most gracious, most merciful, so that you start in His name and add barakah (blessing) to your food! (more…)

The Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم made a Du’a (suppliction) that his Ummah would be blessed in the morning.  this du’a was accepted and as a result the Ummah of Rasul صلى الله عليه و سلم is blessed most in the morning.

What does this mean?  Well if you are to have a productive day, don’t sleep after Fajr (Morning Prayer) and you will accomplish more than you have ever imagined.  And most things you will accomplish in the morning.  I have personally tested this and the days when I am up after Fajr, I get things done and in a more efficient manner than the days that I am not.
