Malaysia and Egypt

Sorry for taking so long to write.
I didn't really know how to put down in writing how I felt in Malaysia and how I am feeling know. All I can say is we are glad to be in Egypt.The sense of begin in a Muslim country is very humbling.One only dreams of living next to a Masjid and to hear the Athaan 5 times a day.For me hearing Arabic is soothing to my ears.

Subhunallah, Egypt is literally like living in a dessert.It is dusty and hot but at the same time it has the advantage of the history behind it.I think that is what makes it so appealing.

The city we are living in is called Nasr City.It is an old city with a touch of new.The hustle and bustle of cars in the streets is crazy.The noise of the beeping cars go way into the night but when you wake up for Fajr the Athaan is so loud you wonder how one can sleep through it.

The kids are happy and are eager to get settle down. Myself,I miss Syria and my home there.When you live in a place that is not yours,one needs to be patience.I find my kids are happy and don't complain if the food I cook reminds them of home and the house smells fresh.
Alhumdullilah for everything.

We didn't really do much in Malaysia,so for those waiting for news from me,I'm sorry. Subhunallah our hearts were not there and this was from Allah. Fatimah completed a Henna course with an Indian lady and got a certificate.We went out a few times.The older girls had mid year exams so we really couldn't do much.

All in all my views on Malaysia is not that good so I won't comment to much.Australian weather so far is the best.

Insha-Allah we will be moving soon and getting ourselves settled down.Make dau for us as we really need it.

Please keep in touch and until next time......
