SubhanALLAH it's Cold Over Here

We've been working diligently over the last week or so but we haven't had any heat! SubhanALLAH we had a carbon monoxide leak and they shut down the furnace last week. We have some space heaters, AlhamduLILLAH,but it really killed my motivation to blog or do any special projects. We're having our regular school sessions while we huddle together in one room upstairs, AlhamduLILLAH. Still, it's good training and helps us to remember our brothers and sisters who always live with less. So, anyway, the furnace is supposed to be replaced tomorrow, InshaALLAH and I hope that we will be back to normal.

Carbon monoxide! Alhumdullilah you are still alive! Insha Allah everything will be back to normal soon. I always feel that moments like these are good times to give to charity.

Wa alaikum as salaam,

Yes! AlhamduLILLAH. We've been sick for a long time and SubhanALLAH as soon as the furnace was turned off, my cough went away. I feel perfectly fine now. And yes, you're right about the charity, so right.

Take care,
wa salaam,

As salaam alaikum,

May Allah rectify your situation. Ameen.

We were also having A/C unit/heat problems, subhannallah. It is still not totally fixed. I know it can get cold, subhannallah.

Did the carbon monoxide detector go off? My husband just bought one of those actually because we have a fireplace.

Nope. It didn't go off because they didn't calibrate it properly. Needless to say, I've been going off over here.

May Allaah azza wa jal make it easy on your Family, Aameen. When situations like that come, it truly does make you appreciate Allaah azza wa jal's blessings, even more.

We live in Georgia, maashaa Allaah. The weather is very warm now, maashaa Allaah. I was just telling my children to be thankful to Allaah for this.

Wa 'alaikum as salaam, Umm Khidr. Ameen and yours as well, Ukhti. I could certainly use a little Georgia heat right about now. My family is in Virginia and Texas and I miss the early spring. It feels like spring starts around here in April.

Umm Tafari,
May ALLAH make things easy on you and rectify your situation as well, Ameen.
