Asalaamu Alaikum,

After I read this article on brother Saifuddin's blog last year I order from Marabo and I really liked it. I just recently ordered the denim skirt and the pink skirt with the animal print! I can't wait to get my order.

ma'a salaamah,

(This is the 3rd time I'm trying to leave a comment inshALLAH this time...!)

MashALLAH your blog is very informative - maybe a little TOO informative! I clicked on one of your links and ended up spending a small fortune!! You should work on commission!

Keep up the good work,inshALLAH.
