All praises and thanks be to Allah SWT. Abundant salutations be upon His And our Beloved SAW.

I try not to share too much 'cause I'm well aware of the evil eye. Even I occasionally feel creepy crawlies in my heart when I see those instagrammable pics of drop dead gorgeous couples embracing, while I'm still over here on the shelf waiting for someone to notice me. Hi.

I have a friend who posted on Facebook a while ago that when she gets married she's not going to post pics of her and her husband, but since she got married she's long forgotten about that Facebook status.

I'm tempted to say that I won't post pics of me and my husband some day but what if, like her, I just can't resist?

Anyway, this post was actually supposed to be about some of my good news.

Dramatic, Metaphorical Drum Roll please…

I found "the one!"🎊

I've been searching high and low for a while now. The first car didn't have a full service history. The second car we found had a past. It turns out "third time lucky" is a REAL THING!!! See, I told you I'll get what I'm looking for! Alhamdulillah.

When I made du'a for this car I told Allah that He's gifted people with Ferraris and sports cars and all I'm asking for is a little Toyota or Honda. I also promised Him I'll only use it for good, like I promised 5 years ago when I went for my licence. Alhamdulillah.

PS: Please don't be jealous – I've had my driver's licence for 5 long years and I've been sharing a car all that time.

PPS: The remedy to feeling jealous is to make du'a for the person. Just in case you need it. Which I trust you don't. But in case.
