Our first snow

We're so sorry for the delay and lack of monthly updates...we've been extremely busy with day to day farm life. Here are two pictures of what we woke up to.


  1. Assalamu alaikum!

    Subhan Allah I've been reading your blog posts for the past 45 minutes or so. I started at your old blog in madinah and then came here!

    May Allah bless you and your family.
    I'm a Muslim living in the U.S. Too and I saw your other blog when I was looking to life in madinah.

    It's an amazing change you've made going from life in madinah to having your own farm! BarakAllahu Feekom!

    I've been thinking of taking my whole family to madinah when I finish my schooling since madinah and makkah will be the only safe place from al Dajjal.

    Just curious:
    What made you want to leave madinah and come back to the states?

    1. Wa alaikum as salaam wa rahmatullah. May Allah bless you and your family as well.

      To answer your question about why we left Madinah, you have to understand why we went there. My home is America, and we went to Saudi so our children could be raised where being Muslim is the norm. We also wanted to learn Arabic and other Islamic sciences so we could give dawah to our family and other Americans. Many of our family members aren't Muslim, so it is our duty to invite people to this beautiful deen, just as the sahabah did when they left Arabia.

      Our beloved Prophet could have kept this deen to himself, but he and his companions sacrificed so you and I could b e Muslim. What kind of people would we be if we only cared about ourselves and left our relatives and countrymen in darkness?

      Just as the Saudi government accepts students from all over the world to study at their universities, the purpose is for them to return home and teach the world, not stay in Saudi Arabia.

      Lastly, we couldn't stay in Saudi Arabia because they don't have an immigration policy, and I was clearly told that I was brought there to work! My life is to worship Allah, not work at a university, and I can do that from anywhere on Earth, as our prophet Yunus showed us from the belly of a large fish.

      I hope I have answered your question, if not, please tell me and I will try to do a better job next time.

      Barak Allahu feekum.

  2. As'salaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh! Alhamdulillah! So happy to see all the updates. Masha'allah may Allah grant you all tawfiq in this life and the next. Praying for your family as well in these times out there in the midwest. Your girls did a great job on the bookshelf!

    1. Wa alaikum as salaam wa rahmatullai wa barakatuh. We apologize for the lack of updates, but we are so busy here. It seems like one day isn't enough to get accomplished what we scheduled for just the morning.

      However, we aren't complaining, being here has been/is a beautiful experience. We thank you for your dua', and may Allah bless, protect, and give you success in this life and the next!

      The 1 minute warranty expired, and so did the bookshelf, lol. I guess it's time to have a carpentry class for the children.
