As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuh

Many sisters have asked about the Ramadaan TIME swap, forgive me for taking so long to post images - between the flu and waiting for sisters to receive their gift, 'time' was just flying! jaja!

Our theme was Time, and this what I came up with:

The Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wa-salaam) said,
Take advantage of five conditions before five others:
1) Youth before old age. - bib (for her little one, of course)
2) Good health before sickness. - soup bowls
3) Free time before you become occupied. - dhikr book (prayers for forgiveness)
4) Wealth before poverty. - fruit candles and chocolate (rep. sustenance)
5) Life before death. - cd lecture series on death (by Shaykh Feiz)

And this is the beautiful gift I received: Jazaki'Allahu khair Hijabi Apprentice, it's more than wonderful! I appreciate all the TIME and thought (and money) you put into it.

ME TIME and TEA TIME a gift to help me "unwind after a long day of working for the sake of Allah" - how absolutely lovely!

Below is a list of all the sisters who were part of this swap. Jazakum'Allahu khair for joining us, I hope you enjoyed it, and will be rewarded for it. - each name will take you to an image of what they made/sent.

    Assalamualaikum Dear Sister Farhana,

    Love the whole swap concept. ^^ Just brilliant! Although I was not a part of it, I feel equally thrilled when I look at the presents made/sent by our sisters. They're all so beautiful! It must have taken a great deal of thought and love to come up with the appropriate package to send. Insya'Allah, I shall partake in the next event. Do keep me informed! :)
