A-Z Tag

Salaam alaikum everyone, long time, no write, yes? I bet you're all used to it by now though...

Anyways, I thought I would make another post just because it's been a while. I saw this tag over at sister Yara's blog (go check her out if you haven't already...mash'Allah I love her blog, and her YouTube channel!) and thought I'd give it a go...

Age: 22

Bed Size: Almost a Queen...the mattress sizing here is so weird...

Chore you Hate: It has to be a tie between cleaning the dishes and mopping the floor.

Dogs: I love chows...they look like giant teddy bears :)

Essential start of your day: Something I've been trying to make an essential start of my day would be praying fajr on time. Unfortunately, I'm a bad fajr riser, astighfirallah, but I try :( As of right now, I would have to say kissing my hubby goodbye before he goes off to work.

Favourite Colour: purple

Gold or Silver: I prefer silver

Height: just under 5'5", or 164cm if you want to get exact

Instruments I play: I used to play the cello in elementary school. I gave it up to take more ballet lessons (I was very serious about classical ballet).

Job Title: Muslimah and a house wife...and soon to be...MOMMY insh'Allah :D

Kids: my little boy is due to make his appearance in JULY insh'Allah...I can't wait to meet him!!

Live: Casablanca, Morocco

Mum's name: I don't think she'd appreciate me disclosing her name here, so I'll just say "Mom" or "Mommy"...it depends, I call her both

Nickname: Everyone calls me Ayah here, my husband also has an affectionate name that only he uses with me, but I won't say what it is.

Pet Peeve: when people chew with their mouths open...or when they chomp on their gum obnoxiously...it drives me up the wall!

Quote from a movie: I like movies, but I'm not that into movie quotes.

Right or left handed: Righty

Siblings: one sister, one brother

Time you wake up: it varies...sometimes I'm up at 7:30am for good, and sometimes I just wake up to say goodbye to my husband and continue sleeping until 10 am ish. Most mornings I am up by 11. Yeah...that's all gonna change soon XD

Underwear: umm, I wear it?

Vegetables you dislike: I'm not too fond of steamed zucchini, but I'll still eat it. I'm also not a huge fan of raw tomatoes (even though they're technically a fruit, not a vegetable)...I can't eat them by themselves, they have to be mixed into a salad with some sort of dressing, or on a sandwich. I used to not eat them period.

What makes you run late: if I'm having a bad hijab day...that always makes me run late

X-rays you've had done: my teeth, my chest, my left knee, my right wrist...I've never broken a bone though, alhamdolillah

Yummy food you make: most of what I make is at least edible...but I make really good home-made mashed potatoes from scratch, and I make great spaghetti sauce from scratch too...I'm still getting better at Moroccan cuisine, even though I have tagines down fairly well. If I'm following a recipe, it generally turns out well.

Zoo animal: I like penguins, but you usually find them at aquariums, not zoos. Emus are also pretty cool.


  1. Oooh Mabrook! Sorry if you've mentioned it before, but Masha'Allah. May Allah bless you with a healthy and happy baby, sis. Ameen! :)

    1. ameen! Jazak Allah khair for the well wishes Amal! ^_^ I haven't mentioned anything before now because I'm just worried about hasad/the evil eye...but now that I'm 6 months along alhamdolillah, I felt a little more secure about announcing publicly.

  2. you are pregnant !!! XD Mubarak :D !! masha'Allah, may Allah make everything easy for you, and give you good, righteous children :D.

    1. lol, yes alhamdolillah I am going to have a little boy insh'Allah, jazak Allah khair for the du'ah and well-wishes, my husband and I are very excited for this blessing that Allah(swt) has given us :D
