Thanks for the birthday wishes!

As I reflect on my birthday (27 April) and all the good wishes from family and friends, I take a moment to reflect:

How can I smile when everyone else is frowning?
How can I frown when everyone else is smiling?

How can I laugh when everyone else is crying?
How can I cry when everyone else is laughing?

There is nothing more rewarding than giving.
Let people around you feel wanted, respected, loved and hopeful.
Keep hope alive in the pursuit of happiness!

Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, “What are you doing for others?” - Dr Martin Luther King Jr.


Thanks for all your wonderful messages of love and appreciation. Stay blessed!

Haja Fatmata Binta Bah - It's been 10 years since you left us

10 years ago, this day (7th April), I lost a very special woman in my life.
10 years later, I still feel the urge to connect with her.
Words cannot describe the emptiness.
There’s no substitute for a mother’s unconditional love.
Neneh, we miss you. May Allah continue to bless you, and may you continue to rest in peace.
