  • Expecting guests, need help with hosting :o

    :salams

    So usually I dodge the whole 'welcoming, serving and entertaining guests' situation as elders take charge of it alhamdulillaah

    But today we got walimah in the street and am HOME ALONE, so I got no choice.

    I don't know what to prepare :(

    They are comin over straight after walimah so they will be well fed, that means i should offer light munchies and nibbles along with tea/coffee or drinks?

    definitely going to serve fruits and nuts, but whatelse along with it? and also something for kids particularly?

    me plan pls

    sigpic

    Allahumma anta Rabbi la ilaha illa anta Khalaqtani wa ana'abduka, wa ana 'ala 'ahdika wa Wa'dika mastata'tu A'uidhubika min sharri ma sana'tu.' abu'u Laka bi ni 'matika wa'ala abu'u bidhanbi; faghfirli fa'innahu la yaghfiru-dh-dhunuba illa anta.
    O Allah, You are my Lord, none has the right to be worshipped except You, You created me and I am Your servant and I abide to Your covenant and promise as best I can, I take refuge in You from the evil of which I have committed. I acknowledge Your favour upon me and I acknowledgemy sin, so forgive me, for verilynone can forgive sin except You.

        Wasalaams

        Okay so you got the fruits and nuts.

        Maybe (you can choose from.here- not expecting all of them on the table!): biscuits, croissants, cakes, cupcakes, maybe a nice cake loaf like madeira or something simple, melon and dates (so yummy and light), scones, crisps and if you really wanted to: those small pies you can get.

        Those are the kinds of things we've served before. Insha'Allah fruit, nuts, crisps and something sweet like a cake should be enough if they're coming from a walimah. Depends on their apetites though. That's a whole other story :/

          My Lord sanctify my flawed heart
          As You have sanctified Your house,
          Make my heart as protected and as honoured
          In which permission of entry
          Is only granted to a few,
          Please Allah, allow my heart
          To be preserved only for You.

          It hurts, to watch you leave so soon,
          when I don't know, if I will ever see you again
          In Jannah, we will meet :love:


          If I have ever offended, hurt or insulted you, forgive me for the sake of Allah سبحانه وتعالى‎

                Got some samosas??

                Otherwise yeah, cake / biscuits/ nibbles

                Ibnul Qayyim رحمه الله said: "Don’t ruin your happiness with worry, and don’t ruin your mind with pessimism. Don’t ruin your success with deception and don’t ruin the optimism of others by destroying it. Don’t ruin your day by looking back at yesterday.
                __________________________________________________ _____________________________
                If you think about your situation, you will find that Allaah (سبحانه وتعالى) has given you things without asking, so have trust in Allaah (سبحانه وتعالى) that He doesn’t prevent anything you want except there is goodness for you.

                You could be sleeping and the doors of the heavens are being opened with dua’as being made on your behalf, SubhanAllaah: perhaps from someone poor whom you helped, or someone sad whom you brought joy, or someone passing by and you smiled at him, or someone in distress and you removed it.. so don’t ever underestimate any good deeds."

                    Lock the house and go out ? Lol

                    Id probably bake a simple cake, perhaps carrot or plain, with a savoury snack. ....khamar works well.

                        Samusa, bhajia, pateriya, and then naan khatai, jeera biscuits and cake rusks..

                        And a lovely blend of masala chai..

                        How long will they be staying for?

                        And when it is said unto them: believe as the people believe, they say: Shall we believe as the foolish believe? Beware! They indeed are the foolish? But they know not.

                          :jkk: that's the thing, they are coming over soon after walimah so they will be well fed anyway, hence iam confused what to serve, otherwise usual fried goodies would be best option inni

                          for sweets am going with cakes (swissroll) and almond naan khatai? stil dont knwo if crisps alone would suffice for savory side hmm

                            okkkkk so i have decided

                            cakes (any kind)
                            almond khatai
                            mixed fruits

                            SAVOURY
                            khamar dhokla
                            crisps/desi farsaan

                            DRINKS
                            juice (any flavour)
                            hot beverages

                            and lastly lindt assorted truffles plus dry nuts
