…Ya Nabi Salam alaika…Ya Rasul Salam alaika…Ya Habib Salam alaika…Salawatul Allah alaika…

“My wish is this, that when I die

I still may smile,

And while I go, Muhammad’s name

Be on my tongue.”

(Shakil Badayuni) 

…from blessings of Salawaat

…may this Juma’ah be filled with feisty, YES FEISTY efforts that make us from the majnoon with love as we increase our Salawaat and Salam on our Beloved Al-Mustafa SallAllahu alaihi wasallam…

JUMA’AH MUBARAK!

…Alhumdulillah the tedious hours spent restoring earlier posts slowly creeps towards June 2008…so you can now see the photos associated with posts from June 2006 to approximately June 2008…revisiting all these earlier posts is proving to be an amazing adventure…wondrous looking back over these years..at times feeling like it were yesterday…time sure is a delusional…until one realizes the incredible changes around our Radiant City…SubhanAllah…and here we are still engulfed in dust and noise of continual changes…

…Insha’Allah with your dua’s this task is soon done with as there are so many ideas as drafts waiting for this head to be clear to move forward…may I never be so obstinate with procrastinating again…Insha’Allah…lesson learnt…move on…

All good is from Allah Ta’ala whereas mistakes are from this humble speck. May Allah Ta’ala Bless all readers, bringing you all closer to Him and His Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam. May He accept our humble efforts and grant us the capacity to be good and do good. Ameen.

…JazakiLlahu khairan katheeran for an extremely blessed and talented sister who has been designing recent stunning banners for this humble site. They surprisingly appear in the inbox, bringing much joy…Insha’Allah you too admire the creativity…her work, Masha’Allah, stands out in comparison to all my previous novice attempts…some of which are plucked from the archives as a reminder of what has gone before…

…the restoration of earlier posts continues…dealing with March 2008…finish line is November 2008…Sabr Insha’Allah…

All good is from Allah Ta’ala whereas mistakes are from this humble speck. May Allah Ta’ala Bless all readers, bringing you all closer to Him and His Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam. May He accept our humble efforts and grant us the capacity to be good and do good. Ameen.

…flashbacks…

bq-banner-copy

…the tedious, laborious task of updating previous posts, that were lost when the original almiskeenah domain collapsed, has resumed of late…thousands of photos need to be inserted into the blank spaces…each post is a minimum of 30 mouse clicks…some reaching 50 and more…gnarly arthritic fingers are moaning and groaning while the brain starts to fizzle with this monotonous and repetitive task…but the upside is to revisit history…SubhanAllah…so many places no longer exist…while others have mushroomed…so many beautiful reminders and memories embedded the early years of this endeavour…unfortunately all links have been lost…and sadly I doubt they ever will be…khair Alhumdulillah…

…SubhanAllah…September 2007

…massive work on the eastern courtyard…all this was demolished once the King Abdullah expansion was planned…how things change…

…with sublime words from Jami’s ‘Perfume of the Desert’…

…and Makkah in October 2007…the hotel where some of the photos were taken from lost to the winds of time and the might of bulldozers…and the tall leering eye of Dajjal has not yet appeared…

…read this timeless reminder as the reality of death as our state is questioned with ‘proclaim’
