Salaams/peace to all! I'm already missing our old thread, so taking the bull by the horns and opening our very own Muslim Tearoom, all welcome (non-Muslims too of course), to chat, share, ask questions etc etc. Imagine a cosy cafe with floor cushions, tea and coffee of all kinds, and lovely cakes! Please join me!

I might sneak in for the odd baklava if I'm allowed! Greetings to all Muslim MNers! smile

Can I pop in and sit in the extra-cosy corner with the floor cushions?

Welcome to mumsnet and the muslim tearoom farhana. Welcome back cuddledup, crescent and cote, I'm imagining you 3 sitting in a corner, debating over tea and scones!
Welcome Mareeya and Holof.
I reckon we need to make this truly multicultural crescent and offer english tea and scones along with arabic tea and baklava, turkish coffee and....perhaps you could enlighten us cote, and maybe even some samosas in your mums syle of samosa diplomacy crescent.
I'll make dua for you crescent, life has its ups and downs in that sense doesn't it. I remember when DS was small and I wasn't getting much sleep I used to make a little dua when I went to bed that Allah would make my 4 hours of sleep like 10 hours. It worked (well at least I got through the days without falling to sleep at random).
Juma mubarek everyone, one of my favourite moments of the week as watching DS get ready to go to juma with his dad (thobe, perfume, hat, the whole works!) - alhamdulillah he looks so proud of himself!

I love your lecture dua story Crescent! Because of my poor Arabic I nomally make dua in my own words in English, and I feel that's a really important way to connect, but I must say when I read the sunnah duas it really gives me a sense of peace. I've got a little book called 'Fortress of the Muslim' which has loads in. That book is special as it was given to me when I hadn't been Muslim long, by a chap I was on a course with. He wasn't being at all over friendly (in the wrong way), just came up to me at the end and said someone special had given it to him when he converted and he wanted me to have it. It's been much treasured.

GoshAnneGorilla Sat 23-Mar-13 19:23:53

wonders whether she needs to borrow a headscarf

Hi Crescent, thanks for the invite. As well as cake I've brought vegi samosas from Wolverhampton.

Which if it wasn't snowing I'd be getting in RL

HardlyEverHoovers Sun 24-Mar-13 11:20:21

sashh welcome headscarf or no headscarf! mmm, lovely samosas, someone will have to post a recipe I think!

Not muslimn but can I pop in too? On a bench though (as my arthritus won't allow floor sitting these days)! Is this 'MuslimNet?'. Its where some of the nice sensible people hang.

Mine's a sweaty mint water in hot water (don't translations sometimes make things sound errrrrghhhh?).

my inlaws have dogs to stop them getting burgaled, they live on corner house with garages behind and have been burgaled many times

WaynettaSlobsLover Mon 25-Mar-13 09:55:41

Asalaamalaikum and good afternoon smile long time no speak smile

Can I have mint chai with two bits of baklawa and a nice portion of konefa min fadlak? Shokran. How is everyone? I'm off to Egypt for two weeks to visit dh's family and have a holiday inshallah. We are all ill with chesty coughs and runny noses unfortunately though. I found out I'm expecting a little girl at my scan, and this is my last baby inshallah so any nice unusual names would be greatly received.

Hope to chat to you all soon smile

Salaam everyone.

Mines a plain old English tea please, also on a bench, don't think my 36 week pregnant rear end would get off the floor!

My DH has a dog which is kept at his mums house. He's never been in the house but has his own cosy shed. Unfortunately all my in laws are scared of him and so haven't stepped foot in their own garden for 3 years! Which is a shame.

Hope you're all well. I haven't been on for ages but lurked a bit, not seen waynetta for a while, is she still around and ok?

LostAndNeverFound Mon 25-Mar-13 09:59:52

Haha, x post waynetta!!

LostAndNeverFound Mon 25-Mar-13 10:03:11

How lovely a little girl alhamdullilah. There are lots of nice girls names I keep coming across, but I'm having a boy so can't use any of them! Have you got any in mind at all?
