5 Fun Facts About Shariifah Yunus – CEO Sherry’s Mama’s Delight-SMD.

1. Something weird about me.
I love cooking baking and love to feed people! I, however, dislike eating so I am really underweight!

2. Something embarrassing:
I am sort of lactose intolerant, I cannot take milk more than once a day! If I take it twice…hmmm let’s just say the loo and I become BFF #coversface(my digestive system needs to make up her mind!). I also must take tea every single day.

3. I dislike intensely threw types of characters, two-faced, cowards and the worst those who have both characters.

4. I love being a work at home mum. I am the last face the kids see when they leave home and the first face to see when they get back home. My kids bug the c*** out of me, I am happy when they go to school and I am free to do my thing, yet hates when the holiday is over and they go to school again…sigh

5. Bucket list… Before I die, I want to go to Mecca and then visit several countries to learn how to cook local cuisines, desserts& sweets.

An apology first,and then… SWEATING THE SMALL DEENI STUFFS OUT!

I sincerely apologise for going awol these past couple of days,I have so much on my hands right now. I will really try not to be this long gone again,I enjoy being here and I have missed your lovely comments. So let’s let’s talk about sweating the small stuffs out!
I had a discussion with some lovely sisters which led to this. I just kept thinking about how we sometimes over look seemingly small issues in the deen and view it as not important.
When something is not allowed,it is as simlpe as it is not allowed! Its like deciding to still pick what we wish from the deen,like deciding to say this is what suits me and my circumstances,and that is exactly what I’ll do!
Eg,a muslimah should not wear tight dresses as an outer garment,yet she says,“oh,what that means is we should not let it be too tight,its all about moderation,all about our intention!”
I also find it strange when after doctors of deen say something is not allowed,we still find our way around it. However,when a doctor of medicine says don’t do this,we obey and take it,hook line and sinker(take this medication after eating. No one says water is just as good, I can choose to drink water instead of eating. We will eat something,even if its the killer fizzy soft drinks or just some biscuits,we know we are to obey the doctor and eat something! )! In fact,using medicine as an example here is too serious.
When a professor of english language who has spent several years studying the rules of grammar says, “commas don’t end sentences”,we agree!
No one argues it out,no one says I can end my own sentence with a comma,we know what that would mean,a fail it is! Same goes with issues on deeni matters. Unfortunately,deeni matters are more important but sadly given lesser value. With the deen,even one seem to be a faqii(one who gives judgement or rullings)it is not just about our lives,but our aakhirah,the purpose of our existence.
Maybe those small issues won’t determine our jannah,but who says that,how do we determine that?
Is it you and me who knows so little of the deen or the scholars who spent their lives studying it? So maybe,those small stuffs won’t determine our jannah,but if it’s part of the rule of our deen,we should pay more attention!
These rulings on those things make the bigger worship into a deficient ibaadah,and they are capable of ruining our ‘ibaadah and we know it!
We have not been created for fashion,play and amusement but for worship! We shall give accounts for every single thing,we shall be rewarded for over coming our nafs just to please our creator.
Do I sweat all the seemingly small deeni stuff out,maybe not! However,I ask Allah to soften my heart towards not taking those so called small issues as unimportant,but make it easy for me to take it all as an act of ‘ibaadah with great rewards.
No one knows which deed will be the one to tip our scale of goodness on that day we will need every single bit of good. I will advice sincerely,let us all pray we can sweat the small stuffs out,let us all pray we will not make our self into one who still has an opinion when a rule has been decided by those who know better than us.
We are sisters/brothers,we do owe one another sincere naseehah.
It affects everyone of us,Shaiton might be winning in the case of the disbelievers,and with the muumin,he strives to win over us too,falauthubillah! We won’t give the devil the chance to ruin our aakhirah,by making issues appear as small and insignificant.
May Allah ease and rectify our affairs,aamin.
With love,
~Your sister Shariifah~
