Goodbye for a little while

The whole house is a mess of boxes, bags and just stuff! Everywhere you look is just stuff! I really fail when it comes to packing. Lucky my best friend has been here everyday to boss me around and make me do stuff I really do not want to do!

I am off for now! To a new country and new adventures, this has been in the works for a while but I did not really want to say anything until the last minute.

I will miss New Zealand like you wont believe. The sound of the waves as I go to sleep every night, fresh picked cherries, picnics with my friends every Wednesday afternoon, farmers markets, random conversations with old ladies on the bus, the smell of the masjid, endless days at the each, thrift stores, Chai lattes with my best friend, the forest that surrounds me.

When I first came back here my heart was smashed into a thousand pieces and without even trying slowly but surely my heart got put back together. Allah is forever merciful.

I will write once more before I go this week but for a while after that I will be crazy busy with settling in and study and my billion other things but I will be back! That you can count on inshaAllah.



  1. I wish you all the best, may Allah Almighty open many doors for you and may your new beginning bring you much joy and happiness.

    Stay well and all the best

  2. Asalamu Alaykom,

    I just read your comment and had to check over here. Well, aren't you a sneaky so-and-so! I had nooooooooooo idea! Alhumdulillah you are making a move. I think it's for the best. You can reach somethings in a Muslim country that you can't in New Zealand. Inshahallah you'll do well---as long as you're moving for hijrah and for the pleasure of Allah.

    Of course we need to stay in touch. You have contact info so USE it :)

    Love and Light!

  3. My dear Bonnie, I wish you all the best in this new adventure and secretmy hope you are moving closer to me! So I can visit you soon.........Sending my love to you all. May God be with you all along the way. xx
