_The new Ramadhan Issue of Modest Beautiful Muslimah is out.

_Brother Suhaib Webb gave a lovely lecture on how to welcome the coming month of Ramadhan. Here's the transcript of part 1 and part 2.

_Must read: How to Taste the Sweetness of Prayer, by sister Jinan Bastaki. I realize that alot of us out there have problems with Kushoo during prayers (I admit that I do as well) . It's a series, and I have just gone through the first two parts, but its worth dedicating a whole afternoon to improve your state during Salah (and your Iman ultimatly, inshaAllah)

Part I | Part II | Part III | Part IV | Part V | Part VI | Part VII | Part VIII | Part IX | Part X | Part XI | Part XII | Part XIII | Part XIV | Part XV | Part XVI|Part XVII | Part XVIII | Part XIX | Part XX | Part XXI | Part XXII | Part XXIII | Part XXIV |Part XXV | Part XXVI | Part XXVII

_Another good read, what with the rise of people glorifying such things: Who is your favourite Celebrity?

_You know how I am a big fan of brother Nouman Ali Khan's tafsir series (podcast here)? Well, I got directed to a blog that has transcripts of the lectures given by brother Nouman =) InshaAllah it will benifet many people out there.

_Finally, a poem that I really loved, taken from verbage =)

I asked for Strength:
And God gave me Difficulties to make me strong.


I asked for Wisdom:
And God gave me Problems to solve.


I asked for Prosperity:
And God gave me Brain and Brawn to work.


I asked for Courage:
And God gave me Danger to overcome.


I asked for Love:
And God gave me Troubled people to help.


I asked for Favors:
And God gave me Opportunities.


I received nothing I wanted;
I received everything I needed.
My Prayer has been answered.
