The one where …

My mother nearly (allah laygool!) died!

So it was 6 AM and I was just about to got o bed … My sleeping pattern has become really messed up, anyways I was about to turn my laptop off when I smelled something burning, so I started to sniff around my room but realized there was no smoke!

So I jumped up from my bed and opened the door and at that same minute I saw the lights being turned from under the door to my mothers room area.  She opened the door just as I was reaching for it and the smoke came out.  I started to freak out at that point, and she started to tell me that she nearly died!

Well we both have this little travel steamer that we use to steam our clothes when we travel, and when our maid was in the hospital my mom used it, but turned it off but that was like a month ago! Anywyas it was still plugged into the wall.  And it burned!!!!!!!!!

Thank God it was on the Tijoory (the safe) and not on top of the table or on the ground on the carpet in the room! Wala allah 7afath-ha, alf il7imdila wala.  Bas seriously it was SO SO SO Scary!  Thank God also that she wasn’t in a deep deep sleep either!

Anyways my new favorite quote that I really REALLY like is … اذا دعتك قدرتك على ظلم الناس، فتذكر قدرة الله عليك  …. Which roughly translates to “If you are able to cause injustice on others … remember Gods ability on you.”

    it is always a safe thing to unplug the electrical appliances from the wall socket if they are not used ,especially if one is travelling .

    take care every one
