Alhamdulilah and Eid Mubarak

I wanted to update everyone and let you know that we have received the hijab/scrapbook. Even though we were told that it was mailed weeks before our first blog on this issue, the package shows that it was mailed on September 2nd. So thank you everyone who weighted in getting it back.

I was talking with another sister few days ago, and she mentioned how receiving the hijab/scrapbook is something that creates joy and unity for others, and is therefore a sadaqah.

Sisters do not get any benefits from it but the joy of creating a sisterhood for the sake of Allah. They have shared gifts with other sisters and opened a window of their life, struggles and shortcomings to complete strangers with whom they only shared one thing, their love of Islam

So to us, the hijab/scrapbook really has no monetary value, the bonds that have been created on the other hand are priceless. What I've learned is that the bonds created were already strong enough and though the hijab/scrapbook is a physical reminder of that bond, it transcends the realms of a physical bond, our bond in essence is spiritual since we've all shared something physical but have not met.'An invisible thread binds us, it may stretch, it may tangle but it will never break.'

In everything, there is a silver lining. And in this case,there are a lot of sisters who took part in the project but got busy with their lives and therefore kinda lost track of what was going on or did not stay in touch who all reached out and became united again. So, I am grateful for that. In the process, I have also met other great sisters and increased the interest in the sisterhood . So alhamdulilah :)

Eid Mubarak to everyone and their families! May Allah accept our fast and prayers. Farewell Ramadan, we will miss you...

What you said is really beautiful-
"An invisible thread binds us, it may stretch, it may tangle but it will never break."
