Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh!

So it's been a long long time since I last blogged & so much has happened! Alhamdulillah I got married in December & Alhamdulillah I also got a job so I'm no longer a graduate bum! I guess I should edit my profile a little. So anyway, I come on here and all of a sudden I have over 12,000 hits, Alhamdulillah. Jazak'ALLAH to all of you and I hope you've benefited somewhat :)

I came across this rather beautiful and inspiring story which I just have to share. In shaa' ALLAH, enjoy!

83 years old lady who lives at pali in West Bengal. Every evening she comes from Pali to kolkata to sell the fries.The pedestrians out of respect buy the fries from her.
After lung cancer took away her only son from her 5 years back,to make ends meet she works.Her nephew aged 30 works as a mover on meagre wages in pali.
When asked if she has a problem in traveling,she weakly smile ans says “No,the bus gets me here and my health is not that bad”.
She earns 400 rupees per day but still it is less for her family of four. Circumstances could have easily forced her to beg but her dignity and respect is everything for her, she would work till the end of her life rather than beg on the streets.
When we go on complaining she has chose to solve her problems on her own for as they say God helps them those who help themselves.
She is a determined women and deserves our respect..♥
