Well,mum asked for quraans from Syria and to send it with one of Jamals relatives.
When I rang the family they said they were leaving today.Not so good!! they live around 1 hour away and I cannot go there by myself.So, I called my Husbands family for help.Alhumdullilah,found my sister-in-law.Her sister lives in the same building and related to this family(Imaan Obieds).So, the transport was solved.
I took another sister-in-law with me to show me were the book shop was.Masha-Allah the shop deals with quraans only.
Glad I didn't bring a lot of money(would have spent it all)LOL.
I hope I sent the right quraans.They only had one size.I would have liked bigger font (thinking of mum).
I sent a sample quraan so you all could see it.It is Juz 30 with coloured coded Tajweed rules.Very good for those trying to learn to read.Thinking about the madressah. Anyway, if you like it let me know. Not expensive and I think would be a good learning tool for any family.
I met Imaan's mum. Imaan wasn't there(out enjoying her last night). So strange to see a familiar face. The funny thing was, I knew she could speak English but I spoke most of the time in Arabic. She was so surprised. I think I surprised myself. When we just came, if I knew someone spoke English, wouldn't dare try to speak in Arabic. Now, I am proud to speak in my broken Arabic LOL.
We shall strive to learn the Arabic language for the sake of Allah.I feel proud to be able to finally speak Classical Arabic with all my grammar in place.(most of the time) So, much more to learn with such little time.It has taken me a really long time to accept that I needed not to be shy to learn.I can finally speak to my husband(who is Arab)and not feel shy of him.Subhunallah, that was a very big hurdle I over came.(took me long enough)
Asking for your daus and support.
