Bismillah Rahmanir Raheem (In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)
Assalamualaikum wr wb our dear brothers and sisters,

We hope that you’re in the best state of health and iman insyaAllah!

Let us start off with a story, which we hope could benefit you in one way or the other.


A little boy was telling his Grandma how “everything” is going wrong. 

School, family problems, health problems, problems with friends, etc.

Meanwhile, Grandma is baking a cake. 

She asked her grandson if he would like a snack, which, of course, he does.

“Here, have some cooking oil.”

"Yuck.” said the boy.

”How about a couple raw eggs?” Asked Grandma 

“Gross, Grandma!” Replied the boy.

"Would you like some flour then? Or maybe baking soda?”

“Grandma,  all of them are yucky!”

To which Grandma replies: 
“Yes, all those things seem bad all by themselves. But when they are put together in the right way, they make a wonderfully delicious cake!


From the story, we learnt that the littlest things can benefit us positively. In the Islamic context, Allah works the same way. In our life, we can’t run away from obstacles and struggles that will affect us. Sometimes, we wonder why Allah gave us those bad and hard challenges when you have enough on hand. Those were the times which we felt as though oue world had turned into a complete darkness.

“Sometimes darkness is there to remind how beautiful light can be”. 
A quote we should really reflect on.

Allah indeed knows why He places all those moments in our life. When He put those challenges, they always work out for good. We would benefit from them as we will become someone stronger and wiser. We just have to trust Him and eventually, they will all make something wonderful.Verily, Allah is Ever All-Knower, All-Wise. And follow that which is revealed to you from your Lord. Verily, Allah is Well-Acquainted with what you do. And put your trust in Allah, and Sufficient is Allah as a Wakil (Trustee, or Disposer of affairs).  [Surah Al-Ahzab: 2-3]

In time of struggles, pray to Allah to grant you strength and to ease your affairs. Let us reminder one another and continue to establish our faith in Allah s.w.t when given the many trials and challenges, for it is all made and designed for our very own good. Allah indeed knows best what is best for us, and all praises to Him for He is indeed the All-Knower (Al-Alim) and the All-Wise (Al-Hakim).

Be thankful for all the blessings that you have!


I am a slave

I am a slave

I have become a slave of my desires;

I have fallen into the trap of this world

And change is something dire.

I have become a slave of anger;

A spark of  fire was all it took,

And now I am an oncoming danger to everyone.

Never was that my intention,

Thus, the only way out is Ablution,

To which I am cooled down the moment I am enraged.

I have become a slave of sorrow;

Forever bringing back the past

And never positive for the morrow

While the present is left unattended.

I have become a slave of the people;

I followed the flock of emptiness

And I am finding it hard to find a way 

Out of the darkness they enjoy -

The heart is left devoid

And now I am stranded in a sea of sorrows.

I have become a slave of technology;

Piling up frivolous stories that do not concern me -

Oh the mental slavery!

"None but ourselves can free our minds."

As much as it seems of the slavery I have become,

And the sins I have collected,

I am reminded -

I am a slave of The Most Merciful.

Everything is Beautiful

When you add Him

Into your equation of life and death

For it only reminds you

Of the deception

This world contains.

Turn back now to the right path.

It is never too late

For you and I

To seek His forgiveness.

Remember now

And tell yourself:

"Indeed, I am what I am: I am Abdullah."

I am a slave of Allah -

I am the slave of The Most Merciful.

Who are they?

Our Lady of Lourdes Gluten-Free Treat

Today is the traditional feast of St. Bernadette Soubirous, saint of Lourdes and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI's 86th birthday!  I thought it would be the perfect time to share the beautiful gluten-free treat submitted by Summer, which she made for her children earlier this year on the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes and the day on which Pope Benedict announced his resignation.   Thank you Summer! 

I woke up Monday morning [February 11, 2013] to the news that Pope Benedict had resigned from the papacy. After I cried, remembered to pray, and gathered up my little ones to tell them the news, I had to ready everyone for a party. As it was the feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes and I needed a gluten free treat to help keep my kids away from the other tasty pastries, I made the grotto. This time, however, I used popcorn because that is what was in the cupboard. Elizabeth Foss inspired me with her popcorn snowballs. Let me tell you, big and little ones demolished this treat. The three-year-olds just stood around taking little bits like Hansel and Gretal. It's truly delicious and easier to mold than rice crispies! We will definitely make this version in the future.


  • 3/4 Cup of Popcorn
  • 2 TBS of Coconut Oil
  • 1 Stick of Butter
  • 1 Bag of Marshmallows
  • 1/4 t of Salt

I pop the corn on the stove in the pot. If you let the pot heat first, without the oil, there will be far less smoking and time spent shaking the thing. Also, coconut oil can take much higher temperatures and is delicious. Throw a couple of corn kernels in to see if they pop right away, if so, toss the rest in, put the lid on, and shake until the popping sounds slow way down. Transfer to another bowl.

In the same pot (I don't like to do dishes) melt the butter, toss in the salt, then melt the marshmallows. You know how to do this, right? Stir all that popcorn back in until it is well coated. Using well greased hands, mold warm yummy goodness into your grotto. Really press everything together. Try not to eat too much during this step! I used a jar to prop up the roof until it cooled.

Add a little statue of Mary and a decoration or two. Easy!

You can find grottos made from Cocoa Pebbles, Fruity Pebbles, and Rice Krispy Treats in addition to other ideas for Our Lady of Lourdes and St. Bernadette in the archives.

Buddhism to promote moral development among foreign tourists - PM

Taken from Daily News Sri Lanka

The Buddhasasana and Religious Affairs Ministry considers its teaming up with the Economic Development Ministry in a joint endeavour to promote Buddhism throughout the world as a major victory, Prime Minister and Buddhasasana and Religious Affairs Minister D M Jayaratne said.

The Prime Minister said this participating in a ceremony at the Kotte Parliamentary Complex to mark the distribution of the book "Why Worry"authored by late Dr. Kirille Sri Dhammananda Thera among hotels in Sri Lanka recently.

The Sri Dhammananda Foundation of Malaysia will provide 15,000 copies of the book for distribution among hotels under the auspices of Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa on a concept of the Buddhasasana Ministry.

The Prime Minister said concurrent to the tourism promotion drive launched by the Economic Development Ministry, teachings of Buddhism could be made use of to promote moral and spiritual development among foreign tourists visiting Sri Lanka and his Ministry hoped to make maximum use of this opportunity.

He said during his visit to China, he saw the Holy Bible and literature on agriculture kept in hotel rooms for the information of visitors. Such a scheme is not found in Sri Lanka to promote Buddhism and the Economic Development Ministry has stepped into fill this void which is a highly commendable gesture.

The Prime Minister said the book "Why Worry" written by late Ven.Dr. Kirille Sri Dhammananda Thera had many important details,not only for Buddhists, but all people in the world, especially those in the developing world to lead a meaningful life.

Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa said Nature as well as Buddhism could be made an investment to develop and promote tourism. When tourists visiting Sri Lanka feel lonely and confined to hotel rooms, they could easily get over their boredom by reading books of this nature and also understand the essence of Buddhism.

Ven. Kirille Sri Dhammananda Thera, Buddhasasana and Religious Affairs Deputy Minister MKADS Gunawardena, Secretary to the Prime Minister S Amarasekera, Buddhasasana and Religious Affairs Ministry Secretary MKB Dissanayake, Public Trustee Sarath Seneviratne, SLTDA Chairman Bhashwara Senanka other representatives of Hotel Associations were also present.

Divine Mercy Cookies

This afternoon, following the completion of our Divine Mercy Novena, my children enjoyed decorating cookies. 

We just used some soft molasses cookies I had in the cupboard, trimming them into the shape of a heart with kitchen scissors, though any heart shaped cookie would work.  Then we simply added red and white cookie icing to represent the rays of blood and water that flowed from Jesus' pierced heart.    

Happy Divine Mercy Sunday!

A Paleo Strawberry Coconut Trifle

It is a little late for this Easter, but I wanted to share this with you anyway.  It would be a great dessert for many feast days, including Valentine's Day or Pentecost.  Add some blueberries and it would be a fun dessert for Divine Mercy Sunday as well!

In our family we have people with gluten intolerance and one poor little muffin who is lactose intolerant.  So I generally have to get a bit creative with our holiday treats. 

All I could think about was the fact that I wanted to have that wonderful trifle here at Catholic Cuisine we have every year on Easter.  So I searched the net, but nothing looked very good (well to me, that is, I was being picky).  Then I found, on Pinterest, a link on how to make whip cream from canned coconut milk.  With that and a gluten free cake mix from Pamela's I knew I had it!

A Paleo Strawberry Coconut Trifle

  • 1 package Pamela's Vanilla Cake Mix
  • 3-4 pounds strawberries (you can do less, but we went for it)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup almond or coconut milk
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1/2 cup evaporated cane juice  (you could use agave or another sweetener I am sure to your taste)
  • 2 cans Native Forest unsweetened FULL FAT coconut milk

Bake the cake according to directions.  Do this the night before and let it cool completely.  I had to hide mine on top of the fridge.  In the morning cut up into 1 inch cubes.  Poor the almond or coconut milk over the cubed cake till it is moist but not soaked.  Cut the strawberries and sprinkle with coconut and sweetener, mix.  Make the coconut whipped cream.  Follow these directions.  They work and it is AMAZING.  I didn't have enough whipped cream for the top because one of my cans got shook up, which was a huge disappointment.  So we only had one layer of the coconut whipped cream instead of two.  I ended up drizzling the other can a little over everyone's servings instead.

On the bottom of your trifle or glass bowl, put half the cake.  Put half the strawberry mixture on top of that, then half of the 2 cans worth of whipped coconut cream.  Repeat.  On top place a decorative strawberry and some toasted coconut.

Avoid the Fools. Associates with the Wise


I've written a few articles about friendship. You can read them herehere, here and here. We have also gotten so many advises from the Buddha. few touches on this aspect about friendship. But one important hint that the Buddha have given us about handling friendship is, for us to avoid the fools and associates with the wise.

To have a good understanding about associating with the wise, here is a good article by Bhikkhu Bodhi

But what I wished to touch-on today is the part about avoiding the fools. If we could understand the nature of a human being life would be alot easier. But I would say most of us aren't. That's because all of us are bounded by the 3 evil roots. That is greed, hatred and illusions. Most of us are ignorant people and is coated with a thick layer of dust on our eyes. We are fools. We can't tell what is right and what wrong. We think everything we do is right.

There are plenty of fools out there (including myself). I would say almost 99% of the people around me are fools. We are just plain foolish people who does not understand how nature works. We are filled with pleasure and thought that is the ultimate success in life as a human being. We have got a good job, we have got a nice house, nice car and a nice Samsung phone. We also have a good standing in the society. Hence, we thought we have got it all. We have conquer the world and thought that there is nothing else we can't achieve in this world. We have done all in this world.

But, true Buddhist understood that there is no such thing as true happiness. As long as we are born, we are in samsara. We may be happy occasionally but in reality it won;t last. Soon we will grow old, contract diseases and die. We must admit that this is suffering.

Ordinary people are not aware of this but the Buddha have found a solution to fix it. We can stop the patent of death and rebirth over and over again. We can actually escape suffering. Just like in a car if it;s  ran out of fuel, it will stop running. Same in us as a human being, if we stop wanting those things in life, then we will stop being born. If we are not born at all, hence, all suffering stopped.

I hope people could see this. Once people can understand this simple principle, then there is hope for that person. He has now started to become wise person by stop wanting unnecessary things in life. And when he practice letting-go in a perfect way, he has the potential of not being born again. This is when we say that he has entered nibbanna.

Thanks for reading.

Russian Cheese Pashka

I know Jennifer posted a Pashka recipe already, but I wanted to add what we made this year. It was a very simple, traditional Russian recipe that I altered to suit our tastes. I used melted chocolate to add the decorations. An Orthodox Pashka is usually decorated with a Russian cross and the letters XB which represent the first letters of the Pascal greeting "Христос воскрес!" (Christos Voskres!) On our Pashka, I used the letters C & R to represent "Christus Resurrexit" and a Latin cross but I also included the usual symbols around the sides and even an XA for the Greek "Χριστός ἀνέστη!" ( Khristós Anésti!)

Russian Pascha

2 boxes cream cheese, softened
8 oz. small curd cottage cheese
7 oz. plain greek yogurt (the original calls for sour cream)
1/4 C. unsalted butter, melted
7 oz. sugar (a little less than 1 C.)
1/4 tsp. almond extract (the original calls for lemon)
1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 oz. blanched almonds, finely chopped (opt., I opted not)
2.5 oz. currants (opt., I opted not)
cheese mold

If you don't have a cheese mold, you can use two layers of cheesecloth inside of an empty 35.3 oz. yogurt carton. First, poke a lot of little holes in the bottom of the tub. I used a metal shish kabob skewer. I think I poked it about 20 times each from the inside and the outside.

In a medium bowl, thoroughly blend cream cheese, cottage cheese, sour cream/yogurt and butter. Fold in sugar, extracts, almonds and currants. Scoop your cheese into your prepared mold. I recommend folding paper towels or kitchen towels and setting your tub of cheese on top of those to help soak up the extra liquid. Refrigerate overnight. You might want to change the towels out once or twice before unmolding. 

When you are ready to serve, place the upside down tub on a plate and remove tub. Carefully pull the cheesecloth off. Decorate if you want to.

Know From Emotions, Really Love From Notice through Gian Kumar ISBN

Understanding As Well As A Obvious..

Through saturday day, while you wolf morning meal, shed the children in school and also battle some of the visitors operate, maybe you have idea, "If only i possibly could be at liberty!" or more, "If only i possibly could produce times of comfort!" In this case, this is actually the reserve for every person. You may be thinking the solution take a look at like, "consider everything such as and do not such as, create listings, after that exercise methods of enlarge avoiding consumers correspondingly. Very another, Gian shows that the very first thought you are doing is actually DON'T EVEN THINK. Rather must quietly discover, observing the feelings and thoughts, and also the community about you. Ultimately, Gian states, we are going to get intuitions from your unaware that will help aim you within the movement must truly choose. Gian refers to this as entire process "understanding", however, many may have heard information technology because religionist term "heedfulness" (archangel Carrithers. The buddha: a rather brief intro: Oxford hit, c1996, mo. 50-52). As indicated by Gian the problem along with convinced is the fact that the values use and also we all reside in a quickly increasing people being. Additionally the and also are translated through you when it comes to exactly what the mom and dad, educators, spiritual management, governmental management, and others. trained you. They ideologies tend to be them version of these human beings pasts. Gian is simply not just recommending there is a problem along with convinced, nevertheless tip is the fact that you try to be really up to date prior to we feel.

This particular reserve might be named modern age, however it is more precisely referred to as east approach. Gian exhibits a fascinating mix of religionist and also religionist idea. Some of the religionist idea mostly originates from Some of the Bhagwat Bhagavad-Gita (Ch. 13). Gleam sprinkle in Religious and also Muslim tips. Gian is an accomplished free-thinker, self-taught, and also, even as we produce suggested, among their prime tips will be hinder staying caught in every definitely one base even as we rather quickly restrict the look at what exactly is "nowadays."

One coin of reserve handles a short a review of (one) the healthiness of guy, and also, (two), the answer in understanding. Another coin focuses on the mostly religionist look at understanding (Ch. four), choicelessness (Ch. 10) understanding (Ch. six), and also dichotomy and also non-duality (Ch. 7). The last and also next school term focus on religionist tips of downright (Ch. eight), manufacturing and also devastation (Ch. nine), improvisation and also the nowadays (Ch. ten), susceptibility instead of emotionalism (Ch. eleven) understanding as part of useful residing (Ch. twelve), logicality (Ch. thirteen), and also no (Ch. 14). The world breeze introduction to program can simply touch during the detail of reserve that performances a great deal learn.

Your reader who is competent inside area of real information can find Know from cardio, really love from notice a tiny bit frequent; unfortunately, this particular exact same top quality definitely will really assist individuals fresh to the minds. Advertise in fact have various very difficult principles that should be considered and conducted. As part of part two "awareness," that exposes "downright reality," is actually referred to as staying either "immutable" and also "continued moving": definitely one specific description connote one thing fixed, and also the some other one thing increasing. In the event that audience maintains supposed, unfortunately, every one of the are revealed later on ever invented. The thought of "choicelessness" (Ch. 10) is actually more of a mysterious, particularly when confronted with the issue in bad in other people. Exactly what must you choose? Again read on and also maintain convinced.

If you are especially considering approach generally, a few will understand as part of Gian's operate the sameness aided by the Existentialist's look at 'regular' being since unmerited, broker, worthless, and also nauseous (example. Sartre. Sickness: Sphenisciform Seabird, 1965). A lot more especially you will find a mentioned sameness aided by the philosophical doctrine Jaspers' look at downright world since tremendously complicated, past every one of the techniques of real information, but none of them some of the reduced somehow cognizable throughout mysterious encounter (approach In life: Pennsylvania hit, c1971 & cause And also Existenz: noon hit, c1955). Additionally Gian's look at creativeness welling increase from unaware is really like some of the philosophical doctrine consultant Rolf Can (Some of the daring to develop: diminutive courses, c1975).

This particular reserve is perfect for every one of the 'hunters' after newbies to your practiced: every needs from this one thing at just their particular amount. When occasionally handling significant concerns advertise is very brief, even though it should probably try to be review some vacations so to process the difficulties. Overall Know from cardio, really love from thoughts are a pleasurable and also beneficial study.

Basic Paska for Easter

After reading a Ukrainian folktale to my girls this morning, we got busy baking our Hot Cross Buns for Good Friday, Easter Doves, and Paska!  Jennifer recently posted her beautiful Paska recipe, but since I didn't have all the ingredients necessary, and I wasn't going to be able to make it back to the grocery store, I decided to adapt "Mary Urim's Paska" recipe from Romancing the Stove incorporating some of the decorating tips from Ukrainian Classic Kitchen.  I just love how pretty the Paska turned out, and it smells heavenly!

Basic Paska

  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 2 cups of milk

  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 4 eggs, beaten and separated
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 9 1/2 – 10 1/2 cups flour


In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in lukewarm water. Let stand for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, scald the milk. Add the sugar, stirring with a whisk until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat, and let cool.

In another bowl, mix 3 eggs (saving one for the egg wash), butter, oil, and salt. Add the yeast mixture, and milk mixture, and whisk to combine.

Add 9 1/2 cups of flour to a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook. Gradually add the egg/milk/yeast mixture while mixing. Mix the dough for 10 minutes. Adding up to 1 to 1 1/2 cups of additional flour. The dough should pull away from the sides of the mixing bowl and not stick. If it is sticking, gradually add more flour. (Note: My stand mixer was not quite large enough for this recipe so I ended up kneading the dough by hand. If needing by hand, knead well, letting the dough rest a couple times between kneading to let the gluten work. Continue kneading until the dough no longer sticks to hands.)

Place the dough in a large bowl coated with oil, turning to cover all sides of the dough with oil. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk (about 1-2 hours).

After the dough has risen, take it out of the bowl, punch it down a little, and shape into loaves, reserving a little dough to create decorations. Place loaves into well oiled round baking dishes, filling only 1/3 full. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place until once again doubled in bulk (about 30-45 minutes).

Note:  I had to be creative finding deep round baking dishes!  I ended up using an Oven-proof Batter Bowla white casserole we were given for our wedding, my new Round Covered Baker, and an old Pampered Chef Bread Crock

Meanwhile create decorations for the top of the paska.

Note: Adding decorations after the shaped Paska has risen prevents the decorations from rising unevenly.

To make a braided cross: Using 3 small pieces of dough, roll each piece into a rope, then braid the 3 pieces together. Repeat to make a second braid. Place one of the braids over the dough ball in the pan, tucking the sides under the ball. Place the second braid over the first in the form of a cross, again tucking the ends under the dough ball.


Additional decoration suggestions/designs can be found in Jen's post.


Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Make egg wash - beat 1 egg and 2 tablespoons of water. Brush the tops of the loaves with egg wash. Bake for 45 minutes or until the bread is golden.

 Let cool in the pan.

Remove from pan, place on wire rack and cool completely.

NOTE:  This recipe will create 2-3 Paska, depending on pan size.  I used the leftover dough from our Easter Doves to create a 4th small Paska.
