Olympic qualifier

2016-02-25 10.12.28Today, (this was written March 18th and never completed, sigh) masha-Allah, we experienced drama and delight when a teenager broke a 1995 athletic record locally, and qualified for the Olympics.

Last month, I watched as Youngest, following a stamina run with Number One Son and a fall down a hill, surpassed his own expectations and placed 1st in 3 relays, and 1st in his sprint, in his primary school sports. He was last leg in 2 of the relays.

The Prophet s.a.w.s. himself participated in swimming, archery, running and horseback riding, and was said to have encouraged parents to involve their children in these sports.

PicMonkey Collage-Beaches

Hudhaifa reported:

The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: We have been made to excel (other) people in three (things): Our rows have been made like the rows of the angels and the whole earth has been made a mosque for us, and its dust has been made a purifier for us in case water is not available.

So, from left to right (yes, I admit it, I forgot how to get text/captioning done on picmonkey) are beaches in Barbados, where you can pray in solitude or saffs, and purify in water:): Bathsheba Bay, Carlisle Bay (top & bottom images), Bathsheba again (top), and Little Bay (bottom right and visit HIS CREATION for the symphony of images from this bay)
