I hate introductions. You know those “icebreaker” games they make people do where you have to go around and introduce yourself and one wierd quality you have, they  make me nervous. I usually try to pass or muster up something that is completey unoriginal. 

 I chose the name Shakura because it means thankful, actually the name Shakirah would be more fitting since its the feminine for thankful one but that just reminds me of the singer.

I chose thankful because of the following hadith which is one of my favourites.

-Bukhaari (4836) and Muslim (2819) narrated that al-Mugheerah ibn Shu’bah said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) stood (in prayer) until his feet became swollen. It was said to him: Allaah has forgiven your past and future sins. He said: “ Should I not be a thankful slave”

Other then that I am just your average  Muslimah, youth, student, living in Canada. The end.
