Two of the million things that the #MarawiSiege taught us are 1.) detachment from the material world and 2.) valuing real and genuine relationships. In spite of everything, alhamdulillah for decades-long friendship. @lilidmd_md πŸ‘­πŸ‘©πŸ»‍⚕️πŸ‘©πŸ»‍⚕️ #jaigufriends

What breaks my heart about the Marawi siege is the fact that I will no longer walk my children through my childhood in the place where I was born and raised. It hurts me because all my plans of raising my kids in inged are all gone. I'm not even sure when will we return to the place we call home. I am more resolved now to raise my daughters in a very Meranao household (language and the good in our traditions) to plant their identity in their hearts, in shaa Allah. The future maybe dark for us now but let us not lost hope in the mercy of Allah (swt). Rebuilding Marawi will start with us and will continue in our children's generation, and hopefully they're a lot better than us. In shaa Allah.

Several nights ago, had an iftar with these two ladies whose presence in my life means so much. Was able to finally let out my feelings about the Marawi siege. @leiremd, who is a Psychia resident thought I may be having an acute stress disorder. If I'm going through this who's thousand miles away from Marawi, ano na lang ang mga nandon mismo at yung iba na-trap pa in the middle of yhe firefight and bombings? Subhanallah. I hope and pray the Marawi siege ends soon because this is too much already. Kawawa na ang mga nasa evac centers. I cannot imagine the emotions when the Meranaos return to Marawi, when most houses were either deliberately burnt by the militants or bombed by the military. Yung mga nakasurvive naman na bahay, ninakawan ng mga oportunista. Subhanallah. The civilians have suffered so much. Realistically speaking, physical rehabilitation of Marawi will take decades. I pray that along with this rehabilitation, may we also put our characters under rehab and may we stand united for a better Marawi. Ameen.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) was the most forgiving person. He was ever ready to forgive his enemies. When he went to Ta'if to preach the message of Allah, its people mistreated him, abused him and hit him with stones. He left the city humiliated and wounded. When he took shelter under a tree, the angel of Allah visited him and told him that Allah has sent him to destroy the people of Ta'if for their sin of maltreating their Prophet. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) prayed to Allah to save the people of Ta'if because what they did was out of their ignorance. May we always find in our hearts to forgive the people who've hurt us in any way, knowingly or unknowingly, and may Allah forgive us for the things we do in our daily lives that do not please Him. May we all have a meaningful Ramadhan ahead of us. Ameen. ✨

I am so proud that the maker of Cookie Sticks are fellow Meranaos by heart, Sir @marccastrodes and his wife. Look at the design of its box, I see okir (Meranao artistry) in there! Cookie Sticks is indeed world-class! Guys, Cookie Sticks is available at SM Department Stores. πŸ˜‹#proudMSUan #goingworldclass
