From the Editor's Desk – COVID-19 Ramadan Prep & How We are Supporting You in AprilAs salaamu alaikum and hi everybody!
Amazing. Walk was a taxing month, any semblance of which the majority of us have never seen in the course of our lives. We began the month finding out about the coronavirus in China and afterward we heard increasingly more as it arrived at different pieces of the world. We observed Italy and Iran begin to capitulate and different nations see their own cases rise, incorporating here in the U.S. It immediately turned out to be evident that there was a significant emergency preparing when the World Health Organization authoritatively announced it a pandemic.
That was March 11. After two days in Virginia (where I live), our schools shut down for about fourteen days. At that point it was a month. What's more, presently, no more school for the remainder of the year. Somewhere else, a significant part of the U.S. workforce, including we all at Haute Hijab, moved to telecommute circumstances at every possible opportunity. Our masajid, including the Haram Sharif (where the Ka'aba is) in Makkah and Masjid a Nabawi (the Prophet's mosque) in Madinah, shut for Jumu'ah supplications and every day salah.
All the discussion was tied in with "leveling the bend," remaining at home and social separating. Before the month's over, portions of Washington state, California and particularly New York were announced problem areas, virtual combat areas, with human services experts on the bleeding edges in the battle of their lives. For us all, another, significantly more separated and terrifying "typical" rose as the lifestyle.
My dear companions, I wish I could offer axioms to cause you to feel better. In any case, we will all vibe what we will feel, living such a significant number of various sort of lives and sincerely dealing with an assortment of things. What I can let you know is that here at Haute Hijab, we are in this with you – body, psyche and soul. We have spent endless hours producing a way ahead to assist you with your new real factors and discovering approaches to help our networks and each other with supportive, fun, enlightening and genuine substance.
In light of that, this is what we have coming up for you in April:
1. A plenty of substance to assist you with getting ready for a Ramadan any semblance of which the vast majority of us have not seen previously. How might we meet up to make network when our mosques are shut? What can virtual iftaars resemble? Would one be able to supplicate tarawih petitions at home? How would we bring more kushoo (center and modesty) to our supplications? What are a few different ways to enliven and set up our homes for Ramadan? We will investigate every one of these points and that's just the beginning.
2. A portion of your preferred items are returning to the site! (I can't let you know precisely which items, yet deciding from the gigantic energy when these first dropped, you will be glad!) Also, we are bringing you something pristine that you'll appreciate having for Ramadan!
3. Proceeded with stories and articles to assist you with altering different aspects of your life to remaining at home. In March we discussed telecommuting, self-teaching tips, how to spring clean and reuse your hijabs, making supplication space at home and how to implore Jumu'ah at home. We will keep on investigating a greater amount of these points in April, including ways you can help human services experts on the cutting edges. (Become familiar with how you can support a hijab to give to them!) Buy a hijab for gift here!
We absolutely never need you to feel alone in this. I also am frightened and miserable on occasion. There has been a colossal measure of change in my youngsters' lives. My parents in law, who should've been back home with us at this point, are at present stuck in India. My better half is a specialist on the bleeding edges of the entirety of this. It is a ton. However, as far as I can tell is, there's no other path yet through this.
We are not generally intended to comprehend what Allah's (S) reasons are in everything that occurs, yet we are approached to confide in Him. That is everything I can do. That is everything you can do, as well.
Recall each other in your du'as. Remain at home. Social separation. Call your friends and family. Facetime! Set up a Zoom meeting! Give to great purposes. Bolster social insurance laborers. Give yourself and your family a break. Furthermore, similar to I tell my children constantly, may we as a whole be acceptable, use sound judgment and state Bismillah-hir-rahman-nir-raheem.
Editorially yours, Dilshad
