One month of 2016 has already passed. This year hasn’t started for many on a good note. Loss of dear ones to illness or all of a sudden has been afflicting a lot of them, including many in my family who have lost near and dear ones to illness or otherwise. How much we should be valuing life is something that the below slide is reflecting on us…
Somehow, life is becoming so valuable nowadays, even more valuable that it was previously since we see so much pain and misery all around us. It is but time to realize that we need to do all it takes to make our current life worth the unknown life after it – or the life that we have been given a vivid explanation about in so many ways, InShaAllah… Let us all make the below prayer something to hold on all the time…
“Our Lord! Let not our hearts deviate (from the truth) after You have guided us, and grant us mercy from You. Truly, You are the Bestower.” (Surah Aal-Imraan:8)
There are times when you get your hands on seedless grapes that are so sweet that you would love to sit and have a go at them in one shot. If you are more in a mood to drink them, then this is one juice that you can try. Apart from the time from cooking the grapes and patiently waiting it to cool, this is such a delicious drink! I have no clue why this is called so, since I have never given a hand at drinking grape juice from cafeterias here – it would always be avocado milkshake hands down! 😉 Whatever it is, it is delicious when served really cold. You can have it strained off all the skin and serve on the juice or have those all in so that you can bite it through and enjoy! Off to the recipe…
