Asalamu Alaykom,

August 2, 2013

Thinking 2 much in absolutes misses the nuances of reality.#Egypt is bigger than your TV screen

#Egypt is a country of Muslims NOT a Muslim country. Don't judge Islam by the people who say they follow it.

July 30, 2013

As an #expat in #Egypt, you know it's gotten bad when two old high school classmates email you asking, "I know you're OK but are you OK?"

July 28, 2013

No matter political beliefs for #Egypt, as a person u have to grieve the loss of sons, brothers, fathers, uncles n friends. They were loved

Congratulations to Ebrahim Moly from#Egypt for placing 4th in @WorldNomadsTravel Photography Scholarship Contestjournals.worldnomads.com/scholarships/s…

It must be lovely to think ad nauseum how Egyptians r special n different n OH SO apart from world history 

#Egypt Fear Allah and do not cheer on the misfortunes of others or Allah might take it from THEM and give it to YOU."

July 5, 2013

A feminist in Egypt doesn't have to be out in#Tahrir to prove her point. Prove to whom? There's power in living a quiet life in safety.

"U can safely assume that u've created God in ur own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people u do." Anne Lamott

Alhumdulillah bro-in-law is home safe from Abd Al-Moneim. Really? #Egypt doesn't have to be filled with such fear for brothers n fathers  

July 4, 2013

If it looks like a coup, quacks like a coup, and walks like a coup, it's probably a coup.

My sadness in Egypt isn't whether or not a particular leader is in charge, it's that the democratic process has been nullified

July 3, 2013

Fajr in #Egypt. Good time for everyone to pray. Between now and the next fajr a lot is going to happen and we need some strength to cope.

Women of #Egypt what about Lysistrata? That's Aristophanes' play in which women withhold affection from their men until they negotiate peace

That's my husband downstairs shouting, "Allahu Akbar" to news. I'm not beside him. I don't feel the same jubilation. I've read history.

Pray over your worries and concerns and change them into hopes and aspirations. With God, all things are possible.

"The Angry Arab" is easier to understand than why the collective feel unheard by their leader.

The U.S. Travel Warning is going to affect #Egypt`years into the future as trip planners continue to avoid

Here's ONTV streaming online wwitv.com/tv_channels/b6… for those without a dish on the roof next to their pigeon coop.  

Ya Americans, it's not the time to get out on the streets. I'm deadly serious that you need to stay away from protests in Egypt

Seriously? No photo is worth your life. NONE! I live in #Egypt n I stay HOME when there's trouble. Heed the warning n stay alive

Normal American kids sell lemonade and sip cups quietly. Normal Egyptian kids sell firecrackers and split my ears endlessly with explosions

To treat Cairo water: boil water rapidly 1 min. Let stand and cool down in open container. Chlorine dissipates after 8 hrs.

June 26, 2013

Just north of Hadayek Al-Haram is an army encampment which sprouted up over night. Lots of those small tanks.

June 25, 2013

You forgot the BIGGEST stockpiling in Egypt:  CASH!  It's the end of the month and everyone is pulling out what they can. 

June 22, 2013

Brides throwing off hijab "just for one day" in order to "look pretty" totally lose credibility. If it's an obligation, it's for all days.

June 21, 2013

"You shouldn't have told Grandma that men pee on walls." I reprimanded the 7 yr old. "Why? She's not going come here and try it, is she?"

What if Stephen R. Covey helped plan your Ramadan? afterhardship.blogspot.com/2013/06/the-se…

The chaotic clamoring after the Egyptian court adjourns always seems to last longer than the hearing itself.

June 2, 2013

I marvel at Egyptian summer fashion looks: layering a tight body shirt, long T-shirt, and jacket over jeans and topped with two scarves.

Look past your thoughts so you may drink the pure nectar of this moment- Rumifacebook.com/photo.php?fbid… …

Those who preach hate in the name of Islam will be held accountable for every misguided follower's acts of terror. Fear Judgement Day.

2nd night that I bathed from a bucket. No electricity means no water pump. Power came back after I had chilled my bones with cold water.

May 14, 2013

If you're in a mess, don't lay sole blame on someone else. Apologize for whatever small part you may have played in it. Life is shared.

When you feel as if you aren't getting ANYTHING done, pause afte every task you accomplish (no matter how small) and say, "alhumdulillah."

May 12, 2013

Not everyone is having a Happy Mother's Day. If you are hurting, on either side of the equation, then I'm sorry. Tomorrow will be better.

For a smart man, @ElBaradei you make some dumb moves. You didn't want to live in Egypt OR run for president BUT you do want to criticize.  

May 7, 2013

At this point, Egypt's ministers need jerseys with their names on the back. Couldn't Juhayna sponsor the Egyptian Government?

April 22, 2013

Tamerlan never said he WASN'T Muslim. All who state they're Muslim in their life get a Muslim funeral and burial. We accept. God decides

April 20, 2013

Once again I decide that I hate Facebook, or as we should call it: FitnahBook.

Mursi's relationship with Egyptians stronger in the same way that dead fish smells stronger the longer it's with you.  ME:  An 8-year-old boy died in the Boston bombing.  7-YEAR-OLD SON:  Do you grow bigger when you're dead?  ME:  No.  SON:  That's too bad.

I know who set off the explosions: a sick mind. The color of their skin, their region or parents' religion doesn't matter. Let's stay kind

If it feels strange for you to watch actors portraying Jesus (peace be upon him) and his disciples on The Bible, maybe you're Muslim.

March 6, 2013
Small knives, bats, and hockey sticks on planes? Scary! Yet, I know I bring on something more frightening when I fly: my hijab. #TSA

Shame on mothers who have their daughters cut because of mindless tradition with no basis in health or religion.

Februrary 15, 2013

Wouldn't be Egypt without a Morsi fight!  Every student asks me, "you for Morsi?"  I say, "I'm for anyone who helps Egypt."

Februrary 11, 2013

@TheRealRoseanne Good envisioning and good outcome. As a Muslim woman, I totally agree with eliminating intercession. God's got my number

Februrary 9, 2013

I trust no one except God. While this disturbs many as unfair, putting 100% trust in falliable people is illogical.
