  1. La ilaha il Allah…wa la huwla wa la quwwata illa billah. Allah is the One who takes the souls, and He is the One who saves them. May Allah grant you a good end. ameen

  2. I just couldn’t help but think of the story that shaykh Waleed told us about the man who stepped out of his car and then a milisecond later, another car came and smashed into it. Allahu Akbar, inshaAllah your 4 angels were cushioning you!

    And just so you know inshaAllah, my mom and I are also not allowing you to drive 🙂

  3. oh my God! that is so crazy, are you ok? how are you feeling now? I hope you get better soon inshallah. May Allah give you strength to recover both mentally and physically. was the man that hit you drunk or did he just not see or was he speeding what happened there?

  4. Amatullah: Ok, no driving for now. My mom is driving the rental car. I think I’ll find out on Tuesday or Wednesday if they intend to fix my car or write me a check.

    Koonj:
    Alhamdulillah that concussion knocked me out so I don’t remember a thing about the impact or the aftermath.

    Tasmiya:
    Alhamdulillah, some aches and pain but I’m sufficiently medicated so no complaints. And plenty of sick leave from work, so I have time to recover.

    EverythingisEventual:
    I don’t want to give you a laundry list of my aches and pains because all in all it could have been much worse. It seems my car got the worst of the accident. In sha Allah, I have to get the police report to find out what actually happened because that part of my memory is blank.

  5. Assalamu Alaykum Ify,

    We have just opened your website and when we saw your destroyed car our hearts were sunken. Al hamdulillah you are alright, we will make du’aa for you to recover to full health. We miss you a lot and we feel close to you through your website.

    Amal and Aminah

  6. Salamaat,
    Oh I am so sorry to hear about your accident; the car looks really bad. Alhamdullillah you are fine and may Allah grant you shifaa completely Inshaallah. Take care of you and take it easy.

  7. Asalamu alaykum,

    Maliha: Ameen. Are we going to see you at the Janazah workshop on Saturday?

    Amal & Aminah:
    My dear sisters, it’s been much too long since we’ve all sat down together over a meal and some tea and had one of our late night chats. Best wishes and duas to you in Egypt. I hear that you have some big news Amal. In sha Allah, I’ll email you both soon. I always miss and remember you two at the masjid, AlMaghrib classes, and at iftar. We had some good times together.

  8. Salamaat,
    Actually I am planning to go with my mom. I am assuming it will be easier to meet you since it won’t be that many people? Inshaallah I look forward to it 🙂

  9. Oh no! I’m glad you’re ok and hope you make a full recovery soon. And that everything is resolved quickly with the cars, insurance, and all; that can be a big pain sometimes!

  10. Asalamu alaykum,

    Maliha: Wonderful meeting you and your family. Zaynab from Patience and Gratitude and I knew who you were as soon as you walked in, mashaAllah.

    MusicalChef:
    I’m doing better each day, still on the painkillers but to a lesser extent now and my insurance wrote off my car as a total loss so now I have to look for another one and I’ve updates the hospital with my medical insurance info so hopefully they will not send the bill to me.

  11. As-salaamu ‘alaykum uktee. This is a sign for everyone, but most especially for you, Muslim Apple. Has your perspective on life become more refined since the accident? Perhaps this event will bring a great enlightenment in your life. All these comments prove that you’re cherished and beloved. You’re remarkably fortunate. May you have a quick and full recovery. You have my dearest and sincerest salaamz.

  12. Salaam,

    Abdul Quddus, you seem a bit like a troll, trolling here and over at Patience and Gratitude. Alhamdulillah, my accident and the experience has only solidified my complete trust in Allah and Islam. Too bad for you but I’m doing great. Best wishes.

  13. Wa ‘alaykum as-salaam MA. I’m glad you’re doing great. Perhaps I was misunderstood. There are cases where such an accident has altered one’s perspectives on life, usually for the better. They experience appreciation for subjects they once ignored. A once distasteful fruit or vegetable is now suddenly sweet. Mundane life becomes increasingly spiritual. It seems we both comment at Patience and Gratitude. I enjoy Zaynab’s blog too. Best wishes.

  14. AssalaamuAlaykum. SubhanAllah, that wreck is so scary. I hope you are doing better, and I am so grateful that Allah spared your life on that horrible occasion. May the accident and the pains you suffers due to it be a source of forgiveness for you. Ameen!

    Sending lots of love and duaas your way.

  15. assalam alaykum ukthi

    may allah subhanna wa ta’ala give you a fast recovery. Accidents are defenitely scary and horrible. I hope you get better soon Inshallah.

    Ma’salama

  16. Salams my dear sis! Oh my I am so glad you are alright. I hope your healing well. May Allah make it easy for you and may you recover well. Ameen. Lots of love MA. I will keep you in my dua. Take care sister.
    was salam
    sheryza

  17. Asalamu alaykum wa rahmatullah,

    Digital Nomad:
    Love and duas to you and your sister as well.

    Veiled_Muslimah, Umm Luqmaan, Umm Farouq & Umm Adam: I ask Allah subhanahu wa ta ala to reward and bless all of you and your families for remembering me at this time.

    Alhamdulillah, I’m feeling much better physically although not 100% mentally. I’ve been told that the recovery period after a concussion can take months or years.

  18. SubahanaAllah…. man, i still can’t get over at the state of your wrecked car. I was looking at the wheels and man, even that was destroyed.
    Are they gonna charge the guy or something?
    But above all, I am so glad that you are alright. Allahu Akhbar.
    I hope you’re resting at home.
    Can I come visit?

  19. egads!!! insha allah you are on the er.. road.. to recovery!! subhan allah… the way life can change in the blink of an eye…

    alhamdulillah you are alright….

  20. Asalamu alaykum,

    Ya Liyana, I’ve been meaning to call you for weeks, in sha Allah expect a call today.

    Hamdi: Ameen.

    Jilbabble: Alhamdulillah, I’m doing better but I find myself reading over the news reports of car accidents with increased attention and trying hard to imagine the series of events that unfolded from the time my mind went dark until I woke up in the hospital.

  21. I’m new to your blog and saw the car…I couldn’t believe it was yours until I read your post- I hope you are feeling better…I can’t imagine how this happened, the car wreck is severe! May Allah protect us ya rab….
    You’re in my duaas sis…Unique
