  • Step 1 and 2 towards preparing for Ramadhan

    Some years ago, there was a vibe about the way Muslims approached the holy month of Ramadhan. Preparing for the blessed month had its own charm, its own flavour. But life has become so haphazard, so messy in the 21st century that we have forgotten the traditions of our Prophet SAW. Yes, Nabi SAW used to prepare in advance for the holy month of Ramadhan! more
  • 10 effects of Sin our lives in this world

    By: Shakirah Hunter

    As we focus on all the Ibadah we would love to incorporate into our lives during Ramadhan – we sometimes forget that our first goal should be to remove the sin that might be festering away and dimininshing our ability to do good deeds. Simply put – we have to spring clean before we bring in new furniture or décor. more

From our yards, we get rid of bush and weed.
In the wild, there is no such need.

The leaves form a carpet of compost for the tree,
which nature provides for free.

It becomes a habitat for all sorts of outsiders,
a buffet for birds, frogs, and spiders.

All sorts of weeds and herbs grow that heal and cure.
That we know nothing about, that's for sure.

Allah has made the earth soft like a carpeted jungle.
We have turned it into a concrete jungle.

Chef Zana’s Butternut Soup

This savoury butternut soup is my midweek winter warmer! It’s nourishing, smooth, creamy and just yummy.


  • 1 butternut, peeled and cored
  • Half an onion, sliced
  • Water
  • 1 vegetable stock cube or chicken stock cube
  • 3 quarters of a cup Nestlé evaporated milk
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • Cracked black pepper

Cut butternut into slices, and put into a deep pot with the sliced onion. Add enough water to cover the butternut, and bring to boil. Once butternut has softened, add in the stock cube.

Simmer until butternut is fully cooked, soft, and breaks apart when poked with a fork.

Remove from heat and blend. I use a stick blender.

Add the evaporated milk, salt, teaspoon of sugar and black pepper to taste. Blend until fully incorporated. Return to heat and simmer for 2 minutes more. Remove from heat.

Garnish with pan roasted pumpkin seeds and a swirl of cream.

The Little Turtle

A little turtle begins to climb a tree slowly. After long hours of effort, he reaches the top, jumps into the air waving his front legs, until he crashes heavily into the ground with a hard knock on his shell.

After recovering his consciousness, he starts to climb the tree again, jumps again, and knocks the ground heavily again.

The little turtle persisted again and again while a couple of birds sitting at the edge of a branch, watched the turtle with pain. Suddenly the female bird says to the male,

"Dear, I think it's time to tell our little turtle he is adopted."
