Gadget shelf diy project! / Färgglad prylhylla

Finally found the time to make some updates on this beauty. This is was a very fun and easy project, doesn’t take much time either. I used a simple gluestick to glue the paper in the little frames. Great way to work in some colors to you home!






Making some cake stands!

Salaam Aleikum,

I while ago I was given some plates and cups alhamdulillah but I did not like the color of them. So I decided to spray paint them and use them as cake stands. I had collected some candlesticks at flea markets which I also used for this project. To give two of them a different look I made decoupage on them. Be sure to use a very very strong glue for glass or porcelain when you glue everything together.




Every cloud has a silver lining


Disasters and calamities have been created for a reason, which none can fully comprehend but Allah. Some of the things that Allah has shown to us indicate this.

Disasters and calamities are a test of the believer’s patience. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Or think you that you will enter Paradise without such (trials) as came to those who passed away before you? They were afflicted with severe poverty and ailments and were so shaken that even the Messenger and those who believed along with him said, ‘When (will come) the Help of Allah?’ Yes! Certainly, the Help of Allah is near!”

[al-Baqarah 2:214]

This is a sign of man’s weakness and his need for his Lord, and shows that he cannot succeed unless he realizes his need for his Lord and starts beseeching Him.

Calamities are a means of expiation of sin and raising one’s status. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “There is nothing that befalls a believer, not even a thorn that pricks him, but Allah will record one good deed for him and will remove one bad deed from him.”

Narrated by Muslim.

It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Trials will continue to befall the believing man and woman, with regard to themselves, their children and their wealth, until they meet Allah with no sin on them.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2399; classed as saheeh (authentic) by al-Albani in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah, 2280.

And it was narrated that Jabir (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “On the Day of Resurrection, when people who had suffered affliction are given their reward, those who were healthy will wish their skins had been cut to pieces with scissors when they were in the world.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2402. See al-Silsilah al-Saheehah, no. 2206.
