Today we went to a part of town called Roxy to buy school bags for the kids. Their bags from last year were too busted up to be used again this year. We got a good deal mashaa Allaah – 4 bags, plus a pair of P.E. shoes for Rahmah. and white school socks for all four kids – all for LE300. Mashaa Allaah, store keepers get generous in Ramadan. Something I love about being in a muslim country.
The two youngest had vaccination appointments at the pediatrician’s office that happened to be in Roxy as well. It was crowded, but alhamdu lillaah we didn’t sit in there too long.

“Verily, We have inspired you (O Muhammad) as We inspired Noah and the Prophets after him; We (also) inspired Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the twelve sons of Jacob, Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and Solomon, and to David We gave the Psalms.
And Messengers We have mentioned to you before, and Messengers We have not mentioned to you, – Moses Allah spoke directly.
Messengers as bearers of good news as well as of warning in order that mankind should have no plea against Allah after the Messengers. And Allah is Ever All-Powerful, All-Wise.
But Allah bears witness to that which He has sent down (the Qur’an) unto you (O Muhammad), He has sent it down with His Knowledge, and the angels bear witness. And Allah is All-Sufficient as a Witness.” (Al-Nisaa’ : 163-166 )
