Thank you to all of you who have been following my blog! I have been asked to post new links under one topic so this is where you will find them, insha Allah.
For those not familiar with thePerfectionistas, I've recently started a blog with my (and my family's) experiences learning about and trying to emulate the Four Perfect Women of all times. I try it extrapolate lessons from their lives in a practical and contemporary way. Insha Allah, I blog on Mondays and Thursdays--the entries usually take a couple of minutes to read.
I would like this forum to be a place where we can discuss some of the topics I bring up. Please comment freely. I hope to learn from all of you, insha Allah!
Here's a link to the latest post:

My question is how do we continue to practice this even when we feel wronged or hurt? Any tips?

Here's an excerpt from my latest entry: "I had to peel my five-year-old off the floor last week when she was a-screamin' and a-hollerin' because she was "mad at God."
Any tips on better understanding this concept?

This blog is great.. I, too, am a 'language nazi', and indeed a perfectionist. I know exactly what you mean about the Arabic language and the frustrations faced when getting to grips with its beautiful but taxing contradictions in grammar and pronounciation... its a toughie if its not your native tongue!
But I enjoy the way you write, I shall be following you!
