My Favorite Time of the Year!


Welcome Rest into Autumn!

Fall is a time to restore.

Fall is arguably the most beautiful season. As the leaves change color, from green to vibrant reds, oranges, and yellows, I’m wowed by the outdoor scenery. It is not just the absence of the hot summer weather. Ancient wisdom tells us that Fall is the downside of any cycle of energy, when there is more darkness than light, and when natural rhythms slow down. Fall is a time to rest, meditate, connect to what is beyond ourselves, to let the deeper parts of ourselves emerge, and to prepare for a new emergence, a new transition, a new chance for future possibilities. Just like the trees and animals perhaps we need rest and renewal. This is a perfect season to begin to forage not for food for the body but for the soul. 

Rest provides the chance for renewal, an opening for something new to emerge, for a transformation that may shift the entire trajectory of the future. It is the space for what is new, what is possible, for resuming action in a different way, perhaps in a new direction. It is letting your soul have a voice and a choice. Our culture teaches us to initiate, plan, execute, and drive for the outcomes. For most of us, it does not include the moments of completion and letting go. It does not include Rest. It does not include Stopping to see what new is possible. It usually doesn’t even let you rest enough to be refreshed, only to be able to attend enough that your absence will not be noticed. It does not include Renewal. The cycle of learning from our projects and efforts, of seeing what new is possible only comes from practices for renewing – to go full stop before we begin again. We can learn this power if we listen to the lessons of the seasons if we learn the power of Fall. We can have the possibilities of transformation of our possibilities if we have truly rested, stopped, and renewed. 

I could revel in this place forever, but nature has her ways, so I will revel in this place for as long as it stays.
I delight in the delicate, intelligent processes that repeat themselves with such care. I see deeper into the soul of every living and fleeting thing. I walk the earth with lightness in my step, adoration beating in my chest. I am open to beauty wherever I go.

About Us

Tailor-Made Comfort

The Halaal Household was started as a platform for me (Sakinah) to write and share photos and stories about my lifestyle and journey on establishing our home. When Arah and I bought our first home, a fixer, the real fun/work/blog began to unfold. We were filling our weeks working on countless projects and implementing the practices of Islam in our home. We started taking pictures and videos from the start because we knew we wanted to change things immediately. I love the idea of seeing your progress through before and afters. We also knew the funds were limited so most of our home improvement projects would be completed on our own. 
I blog weekly about everything around my  Muslim home management system;  homeschooling, organization, decor/design/diy with an occasional recipe post thrown in. We have now been in our home for six Years! Our lives have changed in so many ways since I started Halaal Household. However, our intentions have not.
So we welcome you and your family into our virtual halaal household.  Feel free to share your comments, ideas, links and questions in the comments section where we can discuss all things together. We strive to help families with managing their day-to-day activities big or small. Want to hear more about our services? Contact me today.
