My Life: Youm al Arafa and Eid Plans inshallah!

Salam wa Alaykum folks! 

I hope you are all in the best of health and imaan. And I hope you are racking in all the blessings this special day when the Prophet delivered his Last Sermon. I am putting chunky face down for a nap and wanted to use this time to blog.

They Say it Better: Imam al Ghazali

"You should not neglect your time or use it haphazardly; on the contrary you should bring yourself to account, structure your litanies and other practices during each day and night, and assign to each period a fixed and specific function. This is how to bring out the spiritual blessing (baraka) in each period. But if you leave yourself adrift, aimlessly wandering as cattle do, not knowing how to occupy yourself at every moment, your time will be lost. It is nothing other than your life, and your life is the capital that you make use of to reach perpetual felicity in the proximity of God the Exalted. Each of your breaths is a priceless jewel, since each of them is irreplaceable and, once gone, can never be retrieved. Do not be like the deceived fools who are joyous because each day their wealth increases while their life shortens. What good is an increase in wealth when life grows ever shorter? Therefore be joyous only for an increase in knowledge or in good works, for they are your two companions who will accompany you in your grave when your family, wealth, children and friends stay behind."

 -Imam al Ghazali from The Beginning of Guidance.

Hair Journey Part 1

Hello Folks!
Today, is the second installment of my “progress” with starting this new path to improving my hair and reaching my hair goals that I started in this post.
First of all, what is a hair journey?
A hair journey process where someone makes a continuous intentional commitment to grow and/or improve the health of their hair.
This process takes a lot of patience, some extra funds, plenty of research and sometimes physical daily maintenance. It may be even best to document or take note of what is happening with your hair. A natural hair journey is when someone who is used to relaxing their hair chops it off and starts to regrow healthier un-relaxed hair.
