Optimism!

As-salaam ‘alaykum!
I’m writing this blog with a feeling of optimism. 🙂 This week at IJ has been more fun than usual, I don’t quite know why, but I’m actually understanding and LOVING balagha! Unfortunately tomorrow is the last lesson of balagha, but in sha Allah I would love to carry this on in the future! 🙂 Prose next week and then Hadith and Poetry!! In sha Allah.

Very recently, I’ve been told by two people, that they never would have guessed I was shy. I guess “fake it ’til you make it” seems to work? Its crazy. Yes, there are definitely things I find incredibly difficult (reading aloud, eek!) but it will get better if Allāh wills.

I had so much to write about, was thinking these past few days. As soon as I start typing, the ideas fly out of my head (majaaz or isti’ara?!) 🙈 I was also thinking, I would like to compile some notes/a book on my mother. In this, I would include memories, dreams, wisdoms, stories… Anything! In sha Allah I will begin this soon, may many people benefit from such a work, Ameen!

Until next time, auf wiedersehen!
