AsSalamu Alaikum my Sisters, Just a reminder about the upcoming days in December. Keep in mind that celebrations of any kinds, accepting gifts on these days, parties ect... are a direct opposite of Islamic teachings. As a person that grew up in Shirk and reverted to Islam I know oh so well..... the family pressure. I just tell them that I love them and that I do not accept gifts during their days, nor will I eat their food, nor will I visit. But I will make duaa for them that Allah will make them amongst the best Muslims. Oh...and do not forget. No sales shopping during their days...the sales(figures for the season)go towards the stores annual seasonal profits. May Allah may it easy for us all. Be lead by the proofs! May Allah make us firm in our deen and save us from the fire....Ameeeeeen!
