I never tire of talking about how Great Allah is. One of my favorite memories of my grandmother is singing: How Great Thou Art. I understand that some may view it as bragging about one's blessings. However, I view it a little differently: if our Lord has been so Great in my life and I am nobody- nothing, then He can bless you with much better.
Before I moved to Baltimore in 2012, I made a couple of simple prayers. I asked Allah for: *affordable housing (within a certain budget) *walkable, safe neighborhood *Muslim Neighbors *Homeschooling Support *Close to a Community Friendly Masjid *Quran Program *Nearby Parks *Good Library
