Somali Children and their Bananas


  1. So precious! Just shows you how strong the genetic link for loving moos is :-) And yes, banana in baasto and rice tastes awesome!

  2. sister don't waste your time you can be growing in eemaan or serving your deen in the time you run this blog remember the grave & work for your akhira you will be asked how you spent every moment of your life. muslims have bigger things to worry about than their bellies also taking pictures is haram if it contains souls with great punishment as in hadith

  3. Dear Anonymous,

    Thank you for the advice. I am curious though, you obviously know I am Muslim and don't even give me the salam.

  4. ^Assalamu Alaikum,

    Please ignore her Tammy. You are doing a great service. My family feeds on good meals because of food inspired by your blog. You don't know how many people appreciate it.

    Nobody is born with the knowledge to cook...everyone learns, and you are a great teacher.

    Jazakhallah and please continue!

    P.S. Anonymous - you said that she should consider how she spends every minute of the day. Well, in the time you wrote that comment you could have read a couple of ayahs of Qur'an or read some duas. So please get off the computer, follow your own advice, and spend YOUR time wisely. You obviously did not happen on this blog by searching for Islamic articles.

  5. Tammy has helped me cook few meals for my husband and kids. They appreciated it and were quite happy. THey even send dua on to tammy for her blog. this blog is for people like us. keep going tammy. i do appreciate your efforts.
