We’re moving this summer inshaAllah, and I really want to live close to a masjid. With padmapper, I can look at the area around masjids and see what’s available right there on a map. Spiffiness.
We have another appointment tonight at an apartment I’m really really really excited about. It’s a bit above our price range, but it’s 1 block from a masjid. Not my favorite masjid in the cities, but still, it’s a masjid that’s open for all 5 salat.
Also exciting, the owner renovates the apartment before we move in. Beautiful tiling in the bathroom, real stone tiles in the kitchen, the choice of real hardwood floors or new carpet in the rest of the place, new counter tops, refurbished vintage cupboards, a huge storage closet, a little den off the living room, a large bedroom, I’m totally in love.
