Last night at our school's movie night, I made Halal Cart Chicken bowls using @spicetreeorganics spice mix. They sold out less than a minute after hitting the concession stand tables. Ended up giving my box away to share the love. Had to make it again tonight to fulfill my craving. 😍

My baby brother stopped by for a quick visit to have dinner with us. The girls asked him to play with them. He asked, "are you going to hurt me?" . He knows them so well. ⚡️🌪🔥💥
Shout out to all the dopes that paid full price yesterday. 💐 16 people will be very happy today. ❤️
When was the last time you got to do something for the first time? .
Through most of my school years, my friends were all Afghan. It's the only culture I've ever gotten to know so closely besides Palestinian/Arabs. Every international day at school, my friends would arrive in their gorgeous Afghani clothing with the little mirrors reflecting the rays of the sun as they would twirl during the attan. .
This past weekend my dear friend @siely_hassas 👭 fulfilled my dream of wearing these gorgeous clothes and vintage necklace. I truly felt like a princess that night. .
And I twirled and twirled and twirled... 💃🏻🇦🇫 #namakhuda
"Study me as much as you like, you will not know me, for I differ in a hundred ways from what you see me to be. Put yourself behind my eyes and see me as I see myself, for I've chosen to dwell in a place you cannot see." - Rumi
@nidoscheesecake brought me a slice of her newest creation. Nutella/Ferrero cheesecake. She didn't even leave my neighborhood before I took care of it. (It's been one of those weeks.) Thank God she delivered my plain cheesecake along with this sample because I need another slice. #eatallthethings
Today, I felt it. United we stand. 👊🏼 Thousands of people stood in solidarity specifically with Muslims against the ludicrous ban. We filled @flysfo with our signs and our voices. This is my San Francisco. This is my California. ❤️ #sfoprotest#nobannowall
Yesterday's lesson in female empowerment. 💪🏽💗
Everyday, my children teach me not to be attached to material things. 😩 #reallifeofmine
Prepping school open house folders for potential new families. Including @hinazee's fantastic article, "Raising Children with Deen and Dunya" as suggested reading. If you haven't already, please Google it and read. May Allah keep our children on the straight path. Ameen. 💙
