Concerning Sharks

My little sister got married last month:) So lets blog about it.

A Guy liked my sister last year - goes to Yemen to finish Hifz and learn Arabic. They keep in contact via facebook and sms. Comes back on a Wednesday. Comes home that night with an informal proposal. Says he wants to marry her in October and go back to Yemen. So we chat about it - figure why wait and prolong the inevitable - she was happy, he was a good guy. So we got them married a week later.

Now, to plan a wedding in a week is hectic. Luckily my dad is in the event coordination business so we didnt need to book anything. Alhumdullilah, it went very well, and they are very happy together - at the moment they are staying in a flat near spur but will go to Yemen after Ramadan. I think Yemen sucks so I wont visit them, however, they plan to move to Dubai next September so thats when i'l drop in :)

Heres some pics from the wedding




Dad outdid himself with the stageNot to mention the Ceiling - The sides of the hall were draped and we had lights hitting mirrors on each table

My niece and nephew walking down the Aisle before I walk sister down

My beautiful little sister Shakira and my bro in law Anwar - and it looks like a strand of my hair got caught in the scanner. Oh - The other guy is our friend Zaahid who reads my blog, so this ones for you bro

Big family Shot with Mums family. My brother is next to me - below him is my lovely nephew Muhammed AzamBig Sister and I very teary eyed after 'we gave the little one away (notice the tissues and bloodshot eyes. I dont usually cry - It a very rare thing. Even when I saw my sister hug everyone I just smiled and waited my turn. Until I held her and then I just broke down. I know everyone in the hall was like Woah! I guess it all happened so fast that it only struck me then.

I'm very weepy these days, could be the sick or the drugs, but I was thoroughly tearful at the last paragraph.
