"When in rome,do as the romans do"

This phrase refers that how important it is for a person to adapt to the customs and traditions of certain place and situation that we are in...
We desis very wisely follow this phrase..
Reason why i am saying this is..
Yesterday i was having a conversation with a mom whose daughter has moved to Canada back in 2015 for studies and now she is well settled here...Aunty and Uncle are visiting her first time here..
At first Aunty n Uncle were super excited as anyone will be ghommna phirna etc etc..then after few days they got bored and are stressed..So yesterday she came to my house and was happy that she met a fellow Indian. 
She said hamari beti to poori tarah se Canadian hogai h...inspite of being born n brought up in India she has adapted to all Canadian ways...doesn't follow Indian traditions..no customs...and she was pretty unhappy like anyone of our's parents will be..
We talked i tried to explain that it happens people do get accustomed to the place and adapt its ways...but she said one thing to me "NAI JAGAH KE TAUR TAREEKE APNANA IS A VERY GOOD THING...LEKIN APNE TAUR TAREEKE BHOOL JANA IS NOT A GOOD THING" this statement of hers actually stuck me..
She is so correct..We desi people move and adapt to their ways...and adapt their ways to such am extent that we forget our own..
Is it good?? Not according to me atleast..
Its good to adapt but keeping your traditions..your culture...your customs alive no matter what place of the world you are gives you identity..an identity which truly is yours...which you are born with..which your family has passed on to you..
Adapting the good is great but leaving your goodness behind is an extremely incorrect thing..
When we will keep our culture and traditions alive then only we will pass it on to our kids.. @prilaga #muslimbloggertoronto #indianblogger #ottawabloggeres #lifestylebloggeruk #writers #muslimbloggerpakistan #writersofig #ottawabloggerscommunity #writer #indianbloggers #writersofinstagram #muslimbloggerstoronto #indianbloggercommunity #indianbloggersnetwork #ottawabloggers #lifestylebloggerph #prilaga #muslimblogger #lifestylebloggers #muslimbloggers #mommabloggers1913 hours agoDownload
Is it ok to pity yourself and blame others for the happenings with yourself??? We humans are so much in the habit of playing this blame game..that if something goes wrong..we blame others for the happenings and situations. We don't like what others say and think about us..we feel annoyed or angered when people point out to us..We only want to be surrounded by people who support us and make us believe that we are right and everyone else is wrong..
But honestly...in the actual n real life not everyone is a winner and not everything comes without effort..we lose..we put effort n den earn a win..
The best amongst us is the one who is mentally strong enough to accept and acknowledge the responsibility of the life..Its very wrong to simply turn away from your responsibilities and pity yourself and take up the role of victim blaming others..it is the lie..which prevents us from attaining success .
Life is where every now and den someone is gonna point out..pull u back..create hurdle in your way..but it depends on you how u deal with it..whether u take it as negative effect and start pitying yourself and sit and blame others..or you try n look for good in that negativity also..and emerge victorious ..its our life we are the ones to decide what affects us and in what way..

GRATITUDE AND CONTENTMENT IS THE KEY TO HAPPINESS. 
We often search happiness in materialistic things because we have set a standard for everything in life which is pretty high and when our expectations don't meet we feel stressed and anxious...
Keep your expectations low...when you will have less expectations..there will be no disappointments...
Look for happiness in what you have...and try achieve your goal with hard work but no worries...
Jummah Mubarak to everyone ❤

"And we created you in pairs"-
The Noble Quran (78:8)

Its often said and believed nowadays in our South Asian  Culture..that if a girl gets married  at early age...her dreams...her  ambitions...and her career is over.She simply become someone's wife..someone's daughter in law...her life revolves around that family..then once she  gets pregnant and have baby her entire focus shifts from herself to the family and baby...there is no scope left for her dreams and career.
To a lot extent its true..coz in many of our South Asian family its happening...its happening even now in 2019...
But if you have a supportive husband..who believes in your abilities...your dreams...your happiness...then your career and your ambitions go no where...
I got married at 20 and moved to States with my husband at 21 and had Areeb at 22 alhumdolillah...I can proudly say that what I am today is mostly because of my husband's support...i never had to giveup my dreams and ambition because he supported my dreams and ambition..I gained confidence because he believed in me more than me...
Marriage is about respecting each other's ambitions...dreams...and more than that happiness...
When both husband and wife respect each other's happiness no matter what age you get married...you can build your career.fulfill your dreams and achieve good in life....
Happy 7th marriage anniversary to us..

I was never an over weight child but during my high school i ended up gaining few extra kilos...and that was the time I was made to realize the importance of having the perfect figure...
Our society is highly obsessed by the word Perfection...
Perfect figure...Perfect skin tone..perfect hight...etc etc..
Some aunty told me that you are gaining weight and a girl of this age should not gain weight..its not good..
Those were the words that still echo in my ears...and I did every damn thing to loose weight...diet..excessive workout..and mainly I stopped eating...I used to eat so less that I became skinny....
I felt that even eating small amount of oily..spicy...and sugary foods will make me fat..It got stuck in my mind to be thin is beautiful and if i gain weight i will look ugly..and I lost weight as low as from 45 kgs to 39 kgs...and I remained like that until Areeb was born...
And when I lost weight same aunty told me now you have become skinny..this is not good..you look like beemar(ill)...
I meant bandi ko kisi haal mein to jeene do..that was the time I understood kuch to log kahenge logon ka kaam hai kehna..
Alhumdolillah I am blessed my genes are not fattening still I cudn't take that out of my mind..and after Areeb I again lost weight..but now I like to maintain my weight by eating healthy..controlling portion and working out...
I just want to say there is nothing like perfect figure..perfect skin tone.. perfect weight...so never body shame anyone especially children's coz their mind's are super sensitive and sometimes your saying can get stuck in their mind's and can cause issues with them...
Altogether body shaming is bad don't do that... #mommabloggers19@prilaga #stopbodyshamingzachherron #mommabloggerph #ottawablogger #stopbodyshamingwomen #muslimmommahasskills #mommabloggers #muslimmomma #ottawabloggersbrunch #ottawabloggerscommunity #mommablogger #stopbodyshamingyourself #mommabloggersofinstagram #muslimmommas #ottawabloggers #stopbodyshaming #muslimmommaholicbookclub #prilaga #stopbodyshaming #muslimmommademarket #ottawabloggermeetup #mommabloggersconnect #ottawabloggeres #muslimmommaholic #indianmombloggercommunity14 days agoDownload
I am a kind of person who believe in giving advice only when asked and there are very few people who's talks and advice make impact on my life and thinking...i may sound rude but this is me...so apart from this coming back to the topic...yesterday i was listening to this person's talk show and the topic was today's youth's life...and again like always his talks made an impact on me...
He talked about how today's youth have make their life complicated..stressful....depressed..just to achieve success..just to make a name for themselves in the small age of 15 or 16 ..and even more 11 or 12 years...
Why our kids have become so much stressed..the age where the kids are supposed to enjoy..have fun..least worry about future they are depressed...they are taking grave steps..The answer is the pressure..pressure of being perfect..pressure of achieving success...pressure of making name for themselves...pressure of having a perfect lifestyle..pressure of looking good..etc etc
Where does this pressure comes from..social media...our surroundings and in the case of success its us.. we parents and elders...we have made our expectations so much from our kids that at every step they are under pressure and struggling..struggling to get good grades...struggling to become an obedient child...struggling to become good in eyes of everyone..and struggling to achieve everything...and ofcourse they are struggling to fit in their circle of beauty..fame..lifestyle...achievements which comes from their social circle and the so called life started by social media...
Even the younger adult they start up a work in fun and then when they don't get the result they stress out...its success which will not come in a day or two or month..it will take years to come..but what we do we take pressure and stress out..why coz we lack patience..
We have surrounded our lives with so much worries that we have forgotten to live life happily..
Forget everything and enjoy your day every second..if you cannot achieve something today try again tomorrow..your job is to try and rest leave in the hand of God... Enjoy your life and worry less.. #advice#talkshow#impact#spiritique#mommabloggers1915 days agoDownload

Travel is something that rejuvenates a person's heart soul ..mind and body...its one of the best ways to detach your self from the affairs of duniya(world) and connect with Allah( almighty) through the nature...Allah's every creation is mystical and gives you peace of mind and happiness of soul and ofcourse keeps your health in check..especially travelling is amazing for mental health and care..

How PROPHET MUHAMMAD  SAW  Peace be upon him made tasbeeh??? Abdullah Bin Amru said: "I saw the Prophet (SAW) counting the glorification of his Lord on his right hand". Indeed ALLAH is praiseworthy... Read this information and found it worth sharing... Title- "ALLAH IS PRAISE WORTHY" 
I made this art piece on 11×14 canvas...simple abstract using sponge and then made textured design on the edges with the texture paste and stencil...and the most beautiful part wrote ALLAH in Chinese Arabic Calligraphy... Do let me know how is this art piece?? @prilaga #acrylicpaintingartist i #acrylicpaintings  #islamiccalligraphyarts #calligraphy # #calligraphyph #islamicartgallery #islamicart #islamiccalligraphyart #acrylicpaintingoncanvas #islamicartwork #acrylicpaintingart #localbuisness #calligraphylove #islamicartmuseum #islamiccalligraphy✒️ #islamiccalligraphypaintings #localbuisnesses #localbuisnessawards #acrylicpaintingsoncanvas #islamicarticle #acrylicpainting #localbuisnessinfluencer #calligraphymasters #calligraphyart #localbuisnessowner #islamicarts #islamiccalligraphypainting #islamiccalligraphya month agoDownload
Happy birthday My Boy
Letter to my 5 year old

My little boy who is not little anymore..growing up ma sha allah so fast...
Its like yesterday October 20,2014 at 9:35 pm ...i first held you up in my arms..the times seems to have passed so fast..You came in my life and gave me another life...made me Amma.The moment i saw you i knew i will never love anyone the way i love you.You made my life wonderful...I cannot thank Allah enough for making me your mom...i cannot thank Allah enough for choosing me and your Abba as your parents..and giving us this beautiful opportunity to raise you .Lik every new mom i knew nothing about parenting and raising up a child..but when i held you.. i felt Allah has given me all the knowledge of raising you up..
You are an amazing child..who loves everyone..finds happiness in every small details of life...i love how you play with your abba and me..i love how you ask me "Amma apne khaane mein kya banaya h"😁Your curiosity about small details amazes me how minutely you observe everything around you.I love how you make friends with everyone so easily and sometimes this habbit of yours scares me also..coz not everyone in this world is good...still i want you to enjoy life innocently by protecting you from around the bad side of the world..
In sha allah when you will grow up you will understand everything..The best thing that i love about you is your trust in Allah..how you pray regularly and say your dua's on time...
No words are enough to describe my love for you..in the end i will pray may Allah bless u always and shower his blessings on you..and give you long and healthy life...aameen summa aameen.

Painted this piece MUSIC OF THE WAVES..its a very special piece depicting the music created by the waves when they hit the rock..
When you look at nature you see how every thing is sacred and pure..how every creation of god is mystical in itself..i enjoyed painting this piece..A small dedication to my favorite musician. @prilaga #prilaga #giveawaycontest #paintingoftheday #giveaways #artgiveawayprize #canadianartist #artgiveaways #canadaswonderland #torontoartist #canadianrockies #canadasworld #paintingart #canadiangirl #canada🍁 #paintings #paintingwarhammer #artgiveaway #indiansinottawa #canadian #canadianart #canadagram #canada #giveaway #canadianblogger #painting #artgiveawaycontest #artgiveaway108 #artgiveawaywinner #giveawayindo #canada🇨🇦a month agoDownload
