ASaintAway

Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,
As a fellow human being I can say that I have had my fair share of bad experiences. Experiences which I regret and wish never happened. But the past is a memory that can only be recollected in our thoughts and not in the present because the past is untainted so our future can be recreated. Nice quote thing there huh? Well the reason I speak of this sisters is because everyone has a past, that lurks around them like a lingering smell.

The thing is we should realise by now, Islam is the air freshner that will make us not only relieved but our noses happier. We all make mistakes and that's no reason why we should be held down by them, it's a mistake not a representation of who you are. We know that repentence allows us to redeem ourselves and by the will of Allah(SWT) we can start afresh, a new page in our books InshaAllah.

The real issue at hand sisters, is when we acknowledge our mistakes and can repent but judge others for their mistakes/sins. Noones perfect. Lemme begin with brothers/sisters who aren't so practicing, they are journeying through life, and have not yet found the true essence of Islam so therefore we have no right to judge 1) because we are slaves to Allah(SWT) 2) because everyone has their own jihad. Judging can be... Omg she wore scarf one day then next she took it off...Sister, whatever she did is between her and Allah(SWT). Yes advising is fine, but please think about the way you say something it can offend sisters. This goes for brothers aswell. For instance, What? He prayed one day then next minute hes chilling with girls. Just think about this for one moment, if it was you who had done this(boy or girl scenario) and people started judging you, would you feel inclined to ever go towards Islam again? Wouldnt you feel as though you get judged every moment and that there'd be no point?

It's important to remember this sisters as we all forget. Dont judge others because they sin differently. (i think thats from How I Met Your Mother) next I wanted to discuss practicing sisters and brothers. Lets not forget that we all are striving for Jannah and the closer we get the harder trials we face. So when a practicing sis makes a mistake don't judge her and start making assumptions that shes no longer 'practicing' or shes a hypocrite. Lets assume she's trying like all of us. Noones going to make it through life with no scratches.

Even if a person is unbelievably holy they can still make errors so bear that in mind. We are not here to judge others, remember our purpose do not digress. :)

Also please remember sisters, I am not perfect by any means so whatever I say is a reminder to myself first then to yous.

Wasalaam

Run like Mad

I've been running for about two months now and I've picked up a few things that may or may not be of interest to you in any case read on if you'd like to know.
1)Firstly, setting up a running routine is good because you know exactly when you want to run and you can fit in your other life around it, this includes the time of day you want to run and where, as well as for how long. I run in my local park which is about a 10minute walk from my house, however some people don't have park that's close in that case you could run in the local area. I also run for 30-40mins on Wednesday and Friday this equals to about 3laps around my park, the reason why it's good to round it to laps is so you don't have to check the time. I usually do a long run on Sunday for about an hour. I usually run after breakfast but as I tend to write in the mornings if I wake up late it can be early afternoon too. 2)Next, at the beginning you might not experience running injuries but after…

Running to the Docks

So last week I went to the royal docks- well that's pretty ordinary, no idea why you decided to mention it as a post
Well guys, I ran there.
I knew the course roughly via barking road until you need to turn towards Newham University Hospital, from there its straight until you get to Prince Regent DLR and then a right and about 10minutes will you get you to Royal Victoria DLR. It's a simple route, but I did get lost at the T-junction towards Custom House or Eastham, luckily I had my phone on hand to guide me. 
The route was easy enough, I have ran to Plaistow a couple of times, so that was familiar, from then, it was touch and go. However with such a long route you do need pitstops. My pitstop was Newham University Hospital, they have a toilet and a prayer room, what more could you ask for? Plus it was Sunday, so it was practically empty!But other pitstops could be Westfield, from Plaistow you just follow it round, but that would be a detour from the route so I found the Hospit…

Barefoot basics

Today I tried out barefoot running it was definitely an experience! I could really feel my feet doing the work and I quite liked feeling my feet hit the ground. I didn't have any injuries or much pain than usual. My muscles were a bit sore like normal.




You can buy a similar pair from sports direct any sort of aqua shoes should be enough protection for your feet.
These are the hot tuna pair I think my sister bought them for a few pounds I don't remember.

Pros:
-you can feel your feet hitting the ground which feels kinda nice
-you can get used to it quite easily
-very lightweight on your feet

Cons:
-you have to work a bit harder because your feet are doing alot of work your feet get tired more easily
-you can feel the ground when you're walking when you're running it doesn't really matter

I borrowed my sisters hot tuna aqua shoes. Hot tuna usually do sports gear for water sports. The ones I wore are a cheaper alternative to Vibrams. Vibrams are a bit more on the expe…
