Hi all well today was my uni induction day, there wont be a big class that's ok with me. My actual modules will be biomolecules, foodology, scientific skills and physiology and nutrition. Have no clue s ton what they involve in the way of study as yet cut will find out next week on wednesday. The other positive is that it's still a 10 am start.

The uni has also installed a new registration system son that when you enter a class you use your identity card to log in and at the end of the day sign out before you leave uni, this how they check you have are attending the cousre lectures etc.

Well that's me for now

Bye for now

Ramadan so far

Salam to all my friends and inshallah your ramadan is going well.

Monday started off so well for me, I had my suhorr (food before beginning fast) then i went to bed around 4am after clearing away the kitchen and making sure that everyone was fed well.

I then arose in the morning around 8am, and after my sons had their showers, i was able to have my shower and then afterwards i then sat down in my bedroom and was able to read the whole chapter of Al Baqara of the quaran.  I did not realise the time as after I had finished it was 3.45pm and so I then proceeded to go shopping for the bits and pieces that we needed and then went back to my room to rest and listen to the womens hour on MCR the radio station i allways listen to this time of the year, they have some good programmes on there especially the drivetime, although the presenters this year have changed the new brothers are still doing a good job of entertaining.

I must say though that since day one i have been suffering with very bad migraines again this year, i have managed to fast alhumdulillah, so reading has gone out of the window but now im inshallah getting back on my feet i can inshallah catch up with what i have missed out on.

well so im now going to post some photos inshallah over the next day or so, inshallah of the iftar table and maybe inshallah of us outside tonight if we still go to London as hopefully planned inshallah.

well inshallah will write soon and will also have good news about uni, as i have to do the online enrollment sometime this month and the face to face on sept 5th.

Ramadan is nearly here alhumudulillah

Well its now the 15th of July and inshallah in around 17 - 18 days it will be the beginning of the month of fasting called Ramadan. From now until the start of the holy month it is time to reflect on the past year and what we want to get out of the holy month coming up.

To prepare I have begun to sort through my iphone and its music content and remove quite a bit of the stuff on there and fill it with my islamic readings and favourite nasheeds. I inshallah hope to put my quran reading in the forefront this year too, last year I was really ill and unable to even eat for most of the month and so my ramadan was not very eventful and being able to read was not even part of my daily routine as I spent most of the time in bed in pain.

As its the summer holidays again inshallah i can spend my time in the bedroom reading to my hearts content, as cooking will be a lot later in the day inshallah.

The foods that me and my family will be eating will be msemmen and bgriia these are moroccan pancakes, there will be samosas, bread, soup (harira,tomato) and i have made some chebbakkiya and frozen this too at the moment. I will be making some moroccan cigars and some biscuits and cakes too.

This part of the lead up to the holy month I do enjoy and inshallah it shall be a rewarding month.

I will be back inshallah weekly to post what other things I have to done to make ramadan a little easier in the beginning, and inshallah the whole of ramdan right up until Eid ul Fitr.
