Comfort of the Eyes

'O Our Lord', grant us from our wives and offspring, the comfort of our eyes, and make us the leaders of the pious. (25:74)

As of two days, the author of this blog is married.  This was not what he had in mind at all.

  10. As-salaamu 'alaikum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh,

    I was dying to know when we'd be reading this post, 'cuz I remember you slipping up in an MM comment and saying something about your engagement :D

    BarakAllahu lakumaa, wa baaraka 'alaykumaa, wa jam'a baynakummaa fee khair, ameen!

    :D :D :D

    Is the missus a blogger too? Are we going to start seeing relevant opinions as well as irrelevant ones? :D

  11. Assalam-o-alaikum Faraz bhai!

    I hope you had a great wedding (sounds like you did, MashAllah!)! Best wishes and prayers from all of us here!

  12. Congrats bro! I am so glad to know all has gone so well. May Allah make it blissful for the rest of your lives. (It's plural now- eh?)

    My prayers are with you.

  13. Assalam alaikum and many congratulations to both of you - Faraz and Mrs. Faraz. Have a long and happy married life :)!

  14. Allah (swt) tomader dui jon ke khushite and deen darir shathe rakhun. Ameen. Mus

  15. Salaams all,

    JazakAllah-khair to everyone for your well-wishes. I just returned to Canada last night after a wonderful trip through the Mediterranean, highlights of which will be shared here insha-Allah.

    Those of you who are relatives (i.e. Saira, Ameera), expect pics soon enough. I have a few thousand pictures and videos (thanks Nauman for the video camera!!) to sort through, so it will take some time.

    Wa salam,

  16. iMuslim: What do you mean, by "finally!" for the announcement ... it wasn't even 48 hours after the wedding that I blogged! I'd consider that pretty responsive considering how busy I was.

    Ameen to your du'as!

    Ammena: Alhamdulillah, everything did go smoothly. Thanks for the well-wishes.

    Hafsa: I found a few minutes before the walimah to blog two lines ... I figured that if I didn't do it then, it would have been a couple of weeks before I could post something.

    Organica: JazakAllah-khair!

    Farzeen: Ameen to the du'as! I've been smiling for quite some time now, hopefully it will keep up a while longer!

    Saira: I'll send pics soon, insha-Allah.

    Yusuf: Was I in the way? I'm sorry...

    Ameen to the du'as!

    Asmaa: JazakAllah-khair! May Allah grant you ease.

    AnonyMouse: I was looking over MM to see where I slipped up, as I had generally been pretty discrete about things especially on-line ... I think I found the post that gave it away, here. Oops! Oh well.

    I get asked often whether it's another blogger! Anyhow, she isn't a blogger, nor do I ever expect her to be - writing is admittedly not really her forte.

    hfm: Thank you!

    Ameera: JazakAllah-khair for all your help in the preparations! Things couldn't have gone so smoothly without the contributions from you and your mom!

    ms: Yeah, I'm still getting used to using the plural. It's no longer "my" camera, it's "our" camera. I get reminded a lot...

    mummyjaan: JazakAllah-khair! I suppose Mrs. Faraz sounds better than Mrs. Irrelevant Opinions, which is what some people have called her!

    Anonymous: Thanks for the comment!

    Faraz: Hey, that's me!

    'liya: Thanks!

  17. Salam! Mabrook Mabrook!!! Don't forget you promised me photos.

    ps: Looking forward to the little kiddliewinks - and especially to the well structured, paced, and oh so wise posts once you have them ;)

    Salams to Mrs [Insert Surname here] as well.

  18. Sorry for late wishes but guess it can never be that late ;)

    Prayers for ur happily married life inshAllah :)

  19. o wow! MashAllah. buhat mubarek ho!
    May Allah bless you in your marriage and make you both a source of happiness, peace and righteousness for each other in this life and the next. Ameen

  20. Hey man, you got married! Maaaaabrooooook! Masha'Allah, I'm late but you are still in the honeymoon phase so that's cool. LOL! Many blessings and wishes of happiness for you and your beloved. Send her my salaams!
