There's Good and Bad News

>> Tuesday, June 10, 2014


Asalamu aliakaum wa rahmatullah wa barkatoo,

I'll start with the bad news.

The bad news is that I will miss you. I will miss the feeling of sisters coming together and responding to each other. I will miss reading your personal experiences that you would write in the comments. I will miss meeting new sisters here.
I will miss opening up my email and seeing a letter that I know Allah MADE me see because I also needed a reminder...because I also needed to think about something, to reconsider my own actions.
I will miss the trust you put in me to help you.
I will miss the love. 

It's funny how time flies. Four years ago, I decided to start Dear Little Auntie...I had no idea what t it would come to mean to me or how difficult this post would be to write. I remember registering the blog name, sitting down and playing with the banner, writing the first post, and waiting for questions..and wondering "Will this really work?"



And it did.

Alhamdillah! Praise be to Allah. And alhamdullilah for amazing readers and courageous questioners. Alhamdillah for a good crew and a wonderful team.

Yes...I will miss it all.

I will miss all of that because it is time for me to close Dear Little Auntie.

And here comes the good news...
because I have become a "Little Mommy".

As a 'little mommy',  I am still struggling to put things together. My number one priority right now is bonding and helping my baby and that means I'm just not being able to manage this blog. And I realize that this is unfair to those who send in questions. You deserve an answer or at least a response..and since I no longer can manage to do that, then, it's time to say....

May Allah bless you.
May Allah guide you.

For those who are thinking of sacrificing something for His sake, May He bless you with something better. Make each day easier for you than the last.

For those whose hearts are hurting, May He heal your hearts and bless you with His Love.

To all...

May we meet in paradise.

Love,

This is a great blog and perhaps you will revisit the concept later on from your new perspective as a mother :) but yes, those early years can be soooo busy! Mommyhood is wonderful though and well deserving of your attention! Keep in touch insha'allah! :) I'm always available for advice too at qatheworld.wordpress.com

Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu,

I have been a follower of this blog for a few years now and I have enjoyed reading the advice, getting advice myself, and interacting with my beloved sisters. Through this blog I met my Little Auntie as well as many other sisters through the Sisters Majlis forum which she mentioned in one of her posts. I've made great friends and been made to feel so welcome with them, Alhamdullilah. May Allah reward you Little Auntie, One Chinese Muslimah, and the whole Dear Little Auntie team for all of your care and love for your sisters, as well as all of the sisters who commented, asked questions, and gave their advice as well. Love you all for Allah's sake. <3

P.S. CONGRATS ON THE BABY!!! (:

Salaam Alikum,
Congrats on becoming a mom! Inshallah, Allah s.w.t. will make everything easy for you.
I found out about this blog sometime ago, and it has actually changed my life since then-I can't even express how grateful I am for it. While I'm sad that it's come to an end, I feel so much gratitude for the help you have given me and many other sisters around the world. It just means so much to have someone take time out of their life to not only read your question, but then try to come up with a way to help. The knowledge that there are other sisters out there who look out for each other and pray for the well being of one another is perhaps one of the most heartwarming things I think I will ever experience. Even though I have never met anyone on this blog in person, I feel as though by participating, I was able to talk to so many different people, many of which are struggling with the same issues I am. Hopefully we meet sometime in this life, and if not then, in Jannah, inshallah. Islamic sisterhood really is beautiful. <333
May Allah s.w.t. reward you for everything you have done.

Asalamu aialkum!
Well, what do you think? You know, you're part of the team, as well. Please help a sister out and share your own advice/experiences/etc. One for all and all for one =)
P.S. I reserve the right to remove any disrespectful comment ;)
