The Girl’s Concert and Graduation Ceremony 

The Girl’s Concert and Graduation Ceremony 

Last Sunday the girls had their annual school concert and graduation at Vera Hall in Rondebosch East. All parents had to host a high tea. I really like setting up the table and decorating it but it’s rather stressful and puts a dent in your pocket. I don’t mind though, it’s once a year and the girls so look forward to being on stage and entertaining everyone. The concert started off with an Islamic theme,

Friday thanks: how to live

Trust the one who can see these three things in you. Sorrow behind your smile. Love behind your anger & reason behind your silence for beautiful things are not always good, but good things are always beautiful. “Always choose to heal, not to hurt, to forgive not to despise, to persevere not to quit, to smile not to frown, and to love not to hate!” At the end of life, what really matters is not

My father’s prayer: Imaan

Friday thanks: Positivity

A King had a male servant who, in all circumstances always said to him; My king, do not be discouraged because everything Allah does is perfect, no mistakes. One day, they went hunting and a wild animal attacked the king, the servant managed to kill the animal but couldn’t prevent his majesty from losing a finger. Furious and without showing gratitude, the King said; if Allah was good, I would not have been attacked and
