I have some pictures uploaded that I wanted to share. I’ll be adding more in the comming weeks inshaAllah. Enjoy!

My resolve has been strengthened. I decided that if I am going to feel at home I’ve got to behave like I am home, so today I cleaned!!!!

When we got to Jordan I tapped, tapped, tapped on my new smart phone with the touch screen and pulled up the set date and time app. Jordan, Cairo, and I thought Alexandria too should have been in the same time zone, so I’m thinking I have the correct time. We get to our temporary apartment and there is a clock on the wall that is about 45 minutes faster than what I had on my cell and I thought, that can’t be right. So, of course we hear the adhan for salah and Ahmed goes off to the neighborhood masjid. When he got home he told me he asked several brothers for the time and no one seemed to have the same time and they didn’t seem to care either. None of the brothers had the correct time on their cell phones. We both wondered how did they get to class/work/anywhere on time if they had no idea what the correct time was/is. Finally, we were able to get online and I figured out what the correct time should be and put it on our phones.

Ahmed and I spent the first 3 days freezing our toes off at night and making plans that as soon as we could we would get to the store to buy heaters. Ahmed went to the large grocery store called Fataallah (it is like a Wal-Mart), but ended up not having enough Egyptian pounds to buy the heater and the new SIM cards for our phones. He ended up buying the SIM cards and we finally got in contact with our family and friends on, Friday, December 28, 2012. The brother whose apartment we are staying in called the house phone in the apartment that evening and told us that the air conditioning unit in the living room was also a heater! Finally, some heat in the apartment!

So Ahmed took me around the city today. I finally got my first glimpse of the Mediterranean sea and it was beautiful. Many little cafes were set up along the beach and if you wanted a seat you had to pay the guy who was running that area of beach. We just walked along the cornice and took in the view and the hustle and bustle along the way. On the way from our neighborhood we saw an entire heard of goat on the side walk and in the grass. The goat herder just had the goats walking along the street eating whatever grass and trash they found. He was walking with another guy talking and going on about his day. I just had to shake my head. There were goats of all sizes and colors, even though they all looked a little shabby. That was an amusing start to the day that unfortunately did not end up so amusing, but that’s a tale for another day.

Knowing True Islaam is having several new shows coming up.  If you are interested in Islam head on over to blogtalk radio and listen to Knowing True Islaam’s radio program.  You can call in and ask questions and find out the correct beliefs of Sunni Muslims.  I will be posting the flyers for all the upcoming shows. 


Yunus 10:18

And they worship besides Allâh things that hurt them not, nor profit them, and they say: "These are our intercessors with Allâh." Say: "Do you inform Allâh of that which He knows not in the heavens and on the earth?" Glorified and Exalted be He above all that which they associate as partners with Him!
