Tagged by: American Muslima Writer


1. ON your blog, post the Rules & 10 things you have HOPE for in your life.
2. LINK Tag 10 people (we want hope to spread people!) and LINK the person who tagged you.
3. Comment/Notify the 10 People they've been tagged.

10 Things I HOPE for in my life:

1. I hope to avoid the punishment of the grave and reach Jannah

2. I hope to be able to bring up my children worshipping and loving Allah and being contented in their deen

3. I hope to have a family that always maintains strong ties wherever we may be on this earth

4. I hope to be able to settle down eventually in some nice quiet rural location, whether in the UK, Algeria or elsewhere and be able to concentrate on my deen

5. I hope to be able to perform Hajj and I hope for that to be a life-changing experience for the better that never leaves me

6. I hope to be able to become more eloquent and able to explain myself so I can make better, more effective dawa to my family

7. I hope to learn more Qur'an, become more fluent in my reading of Qur'an and to be able to more fully implement what I read into my and my family's life

8. I hope to see the day where Muslims are able to stand up for themselves more effectively and unashamedly and make their voices heard

9. I hope to be able to behave in such a way as to be a good example of Islam to others: my children and strangers alike

10. I hope always to grow in my faith and improve myself

I'll tag 5 people:

Salaamu alaikum! Sorry, I just noticed that you tagged me! (one month later!) I'm working on it right now - it's a pleasure. ;) (although not much new info...a lot of us have the same hopes!)

One question about your list - you don't plan on staying in Saudi? Does your family have plans/intentions to move in the future?

Alaikum salaam,

Only you left to do the tag Umm Yehiya - glad you finally noticed the tag!

As for your Q, that's in relation to number 4 on my list I guess... Saudi is not really the place to stay for life particularly when you have kids. It's extremely difficult to get non-Saudis into uni here so sooner or later you have to think and work out what to do for the sake of your childrens education.
