A person has to do a lot of soul searching before getting married and your conviction and faith in Allah is really tested. In the last month, I have refused five marriage proposals because the guys were not religious enough. I thought it would be easy but it isn’t. I really don’t like saying no. I get pressured by relatives because everything is perfect except the religious part....

So I wished my friend a belated Happy Birthday and she told me in a sad voice that her husband forgot her birthday too. I felt bad for her. Her husband is extremely insensitive and is not bothered about her feelings at all.

Umar, Halal Chicken and my pious younger brother.
Everyone who reads my blog knows that I have a very pious younger brother called Mohammad. I’m not kidding when I say he is very pious. I absolutely adore him. It seems that all the religiousness of my parents has gone in one child! Anyway, Mohammad is very careful of what he eats. He usually doesn’t eat anything from outside not even bread or milk and since we live in India he thinks almost...
So, the boy’s sister asked me, “Can you cook?” I said,”Yes, but I’m out of practice.” Then the sister said,”My brother loves good food. Can you make Biryani?” I said,”No.” She laughed and said,”That’s ok. We will teach you!”

I discovered draw something for Android.
It’s fun! You are given a word, you have to draw something to illustrate the word and the person you are playing with has to guess what the word is on the basis of your drawing. You can play with your Facebook friends or random people online. It’s really fun! But I’m afraid it’s taking too much of my time. I am getting late for work.
