As Salaam Alaykum,

 Today, I started my review of Al Maqasid.  Some of the scholar recommend that you review your fiqh once a year.  I started on a Wednesday because there is a tradition which states, thing started on Wednesday are completed.  So Allah willing, I will complete this review of Shafi Fiqh.

   And Also today, I started this blog with the same intent of keeping up this blog. Allah knows best if this tradition is sound but I’ve heard some scholars of the past acted upon this tradition.  I learned about this tradition in hadith class.

It is Allah alone who gives tawfiq, So may Allah give us all tawfiq. Ameen

In the name of Allah the Most Merciful the Compassionate

All praise is due to Allah the creator of the heavens and the earth.  May Allah send peace and blessing upon Muhammad ibn Abdullah, his family, his companions and his followers.

To proceed,

  Some of my friends wanted me to start a blog.  I’ve started many blogs in the past but never kept them up. So I plan on being active with this blog. I’ve titled my blog, “Reflections of a Traveler.”  This blog will be a reflection of my thoughts, my experience and my knowledge on a journey with the same destination everybody else has, namely Allah and the Afterlife.  Ultimately we will all reach Allah and the Afterlife through the door of death.  What path we choose to travel upon toward Allah, determines which state we will have when we arrive.  I hope and pray that I will reach Allah in a praiseworthy state. 

So this is my journey toward Allah.  My blog will be composed of both religious and non-relgious topics.

And it is Allah alone who gives tawfiq, so may Allah gives us tawfiq in all that we do.  May Allah give us the best in this life and the next without tasting hellfire.  Ameen.
