DIY: Recycle & Reuse Candle Jars

Asalam Waliykum,

Do you love candles? especially the ones that come in glass jars? I do! My favorite has to be Yankee candles, and the glass jars they come in are so nice and pretty. I used to chuck them in the recycle bin and it seemed like such a waste, but I never knew what I could use them for. However, I came across some advice a year or so ago, about removing the left over wax and reusing them to store food or snacks or decorate them or simply put other candles inside.

Asalam Waliykum, 

Subhana Allah.... been well over a month since I have blogged. In Sha Allah I hope to be more active on my blog and get more posts up over the next few weeks. I have been MIA due to sickness and illness. Alhamdulillah I am much better now, took a few weeks to get over my sickness. So, In Sha Allah have some good posts coming up soon.

For those who are also affected by the usual illness that we encounter during this time for the year, remember to have sabr and remind yourself with the hadith above. In all hardships always remember there is much good that can come out of it. 

Recorded by Bukhari in al-Adab ul-Mufrad (no. 493), verified authentic by Sheikh al-Albani:

"Expect good, because Allah (s.w.t.) makes a believer's sickness an expiation (for his sins) and a period of repose.  As for a disbeliever falling sick, he is like a camel whose owner ties it and then lets it loose --it does not understand why it was tied, nor why it was freed."
