      Wa ‘alaikumus Salam Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,
      Dearest Umm Salman and family,
      The exhibits and information at the Museum makes multiple return visits a must to gain more and more understanding and knowledge, not to mention the boost to our Iman! And so much becomes alive for children when they see the models and hear the details, Alhumdulillah. Oh we have ssoooo many things we would love to explore and do together. We need to keep making fervent Du’a for Tawfiq and for this grannie’s energy levels 🙂
      Love and Du’a and hugs to all,
      Wassalamu alaikum

    Assalamu Alaikum
    Amazinnnnnnggggg! 🙂
    Masha’Allah, so heartening to see Muslims taking pride in and preserving their beautiful Islamic legacy and history.
    Every aspect of Islamic culture is innately connected to Allah SWT and His Messenger and the wonderful pearls of Islam – every part of it is just such an iman booster that sadly this short life is barely sufficient to even scratch the surface of the depths of our beautiful Deen.
    Reminds me of a saying I once read, ‘This life is but a moment, so lets make it a moment of obedience.’ SubahnAllah

    Much love and duas for you and your loved ones,

      Wassalamu alaikum
