'By night when it covers with darkness. By the day when it spreads its brightness. By Him who created the male and female, surely your efforts are diverse (different in aims and purposes). There is the one who gives, who is mindful of God, who testifies to goodness. We will make smooth for him the path of ease.'

I never thought the day would come when I'd be saying, I'm here, in New York!!!! (contain your excitement woman, hahaa). There's much to say about this city and I've only spent a day here, so I will leave that for another post when I let it all out.
This trip is a gift from my sister to me because she knows just how much I (well along with all my other sisters) have been wanting to experience this city. Traveling abroad is so much more than seeing places. You'll experience things and hopefully grow a little more from the people and things you encounter. And for that inshaAllah I'll be forever grateful to her and my family and friends who are utterly generous with me.
So here's to people in our lives that are ever so thoughtful to gift us with things that are so meaningful. Allah's generosity manifests in ways we can't even imagine. :)
