Power of prayer

Alhamdulilah!  I just read this article online this morning and all I can say is WOW!  This poor mother was informed that her twins died right after birth only to be informed that one was found still alive in cold storage in the morgue. Can you imagine?  The power of God is so strong.  It gives me hope that he is merciful and compassionate!

I can not imagine the emotions this family went through.  May God continue to be with them and their family.

Do any of you have some personal stories of Miracles?  I think it would do us some good to hear some positive stories of our Faith, InshaAllah....


  1. Subhan'Allah thats truly from Allah swt. Well, with me I've been thru some really hard times where all i did was cry and cry and call out to Allah then all of the sudden things change and get better.

    For example, once I had to have an ultra sound for my ovaries and I didnt have my health card because it expired and it still didnt arrive in the mail. I had to pay $200 and I decided I was going to pay it. The day of the ultra sound came and my health care card came in the mail. Subhan'Allah.

    Also, once at work.. I was coughing really bad from the air conditioning they had. I could barely handle the coldness of the air conditioner, anyways a few days later the ceiling started leeking water and they discovered that the air conitioner blew up so there was no air-con for a few days Subhan'Allah.

    Allah truly knows.

  2. I have a question (well two actually). Why do all the blogs I read from Muslim women put Alhamdulilah and InshaAllah throughout their blog post? You only put it at the beginning and end. Just trying to read better :)

  3. Okay: I just realized I said Muslim when you are Islam. I am sorry.

  4. I am so glad you asked potential. I used to ask the same thing when I was a Christian. First of all, do you use the saying, "God Willing" ? Like if you really want to do something, you say god willing. InshaAllah=God Willing in arabic. We believe as Muslims, Christians too, that nothing happens to us without the will of God. Good or bad. You will often hear it as a repsonse to even basic questions. Like this morning I reminded my husband to water my outside plants. He said,"InshaAllah".
    Alhamdulilliah, is "Praise to God". If you were to ask me how I feel, I say Alhamdulillah. We say this a lot as well. Even after we eat. Bismillah (In the name of Allah or God, same thing) is also used a lot. Before we eat, before we do pretty much anything.
    Feel free to ask as many questions as you want. This is how different cultures and religions bridge the gap between us and understand eachother.....InshaAllah.. :)

  5. Hahah...ohhh my dear. You do have a lot to learn, inshaAllah.. I can help you.

    Islam is my religion. The meaning of Islam, if you look it up in the dictonary, is submission and obedience to God. Thats it. Pretty basic.

    Muslim is the follower of Islam. The meaning of Muslim is to surrender, submit.

    Not as foreign as you would have expected hu? :) Continue to ask questions...please do. I remember how confusing it all was too me.
