Happy Birthday Rehan

On September 26th, 1984, my mom introduced me to some tiny kid. When
I first saw him, I couldn’t believe this guy was going to invade my
territory. How dare he also be worthy of my mom’s love? Nonetheless, I
decided to see what this cat was all about, and over the years, well, I
think he turned out pretty OK… no doubt, all due to my brillance
as a role model and hero figure in his life. And now, mashallah, I
can’t believe my little brother and best friend is 21 years old
today… I feel like an ancient relic.

Happy Birthday betay. May Allah fill your years with tranquility,
joy, and success in both this world and most importantly, in the next.
I love you man… but you’re still a staller in my books.


Pictures of Rehan’s 21st birthday party… or was it his 8th? not sure.


Don’t let the topi fool you


Eating the kulfi my mom had made for me…


Cruisin’… on the handlebars is my equally stalling cousin, Abdul Sattar (aka Believer2)


I think this captures the essence of Rehan completely…


kr and his best friend.

    ur a good role model. but y cant u make rehan do something that ur REALY good at: blabber.
    and i felt really uncomfortable looking at that picture w/ rehan resting on the handlebars. it explains a lot.
    and y do u have Lloyd christmas’s hair in the last picture? dumb and dumber style.
    rehan, get me a beer.

  2. awww…cute post. the last part was very nice ~Flaim

  3. puahhaha! the bike photo rocks the entry! haha, man you have the sentimental guts to post that. my sisters and I can’t even hug each other. We just ain’t affectionate. We hit each other and call each other beast, rodent, and stupid. haha. but it’s all love nonetheless. we’re a lil  nicer to each other now though for some reason. i guess we got tired of hitting and running.
    asalamu alaikum waramatullah.

    Assalam Alaikum,haha good stuff mashAllah. I wanted to let you know that IONA has its own online Islamic discussion forum for everyone, including non-Muslims:http://www.ionaradio.org/phpBB2/index.phpIONA is a nonviolent and non-political Islamic Movement working to re-establish Islam as a complete Deen. For more information on IONA, you can watch this 1hr presentation on it by Shaykh Omar Baloch: http://www.quranicwisdom.org/classes/Islamic%20Organization%20of%20North%20Americac/start.htmlOr you can simply ask me inshAllah since I’m a member myself.

    i just wanted to ask you if your family has been really religious or if you got deeper into learning about Islam by yourself.
    because though my family practices Islam actively we dont ever sit down and discuss Islam so i sort of  had to learn alot on my own
