Spicy Chicken Pizza



There is a strength in these words… In-Sha’-Allah… and what does it mean? “If Allah Wills…” Every Muslim, when he commits to anything, even if it is a small matter, he has to ensure that he givesPin a commitment from his side along with these words. I know that people jokingly say that these words have a guarantee of six months. That is because of the wide spread misuse of it. If people use these words to let their discomfort or uneasiness known to do things, then they are mistaken. Either we say we do not intend to do it, or say we may or we would, with an “InShaAllah”. Once I learned the strength of these two words, I never fail to use it. First of all, we are committing to the fact that we are powerless in the absence of the Almighty’s support. How many things man has promised, but has not happened, because He has not willed it. After all, “with Him are the keys of the Unseen…” (Al Quran 6:59) Once we realize that, there lies our key to eternal peace and satisfaction, InShaAllah… πŸ™‚ This is a reminder to me to continuously strive to tell myself that nothing happens without His knowledge and what I am able to do is only because of His blessings and permission, and nothing else, Alhamdulillah… πŸ™‚


Rarely the kids ask for a pizza unless otherwise reminded about it. A lazy Thursday it was, where I, as usual put out the normal “Ummi is tired after work!” excuse to two frowning faces, which made me feel sad. Yes, I did not have the energy to drive the car and take them out, but definitely did have some energy to make a decent pizza. To turn the frowns in the opposite direction, I asked them, “After ummi rests, can I make you a pizza?” And turn it did… yes, yes, please… πŸ™‚ In less than a couple of hours, this spicy chicken pizza was served hot to the kids and the men in the house to some “wah wah” comments. My tiredness was gone with those comments, but then it was already 11 pm and was time to put the kids to sleep, so no outing!!! Hehe… Off to this easy peasy pizza…
