Check out Swahili anchors Rashid Abdalla and wife Lulu Hassan home

NTV Swahili anchors Rashid Abdalla and his beautiful wife Lulu Hassan shared a picture of their humble home.

What many of us don’t know is that Islamic teachings and traditions involve guidelines that have direct applications in the domestic sphere. They have three principles; privacy, modesty, and hospitality.

These three principles help to shape the architectural styles and use of space within Muslim homes in different ways.

“Home sweet home … county 002.” said Rashid.

The two lovebirds follow their Islamic teachings as they share their humble lifestyle.

As you know, Muslims live in the midst of their families and relations, eating a variety of foods and drinking different drinks that they desire.

The photo shows food on the floor. In Islam, eating or drinking on a dining table is discouraged. Eating is a chore just like any other and it has its own rules. Sharing is also important and so is unity.

Quick Recovery Lulu Hassan! TV Beauty Recovering In Hospital After Major Surgery

Mpenzi mtazamaji, don’t be alarmed when you don’t see Lulu Hassan on your screens tonight.

Lulu Hassan is currently in hospital after undergoing a surgical procedure.

The TV beauty who anchors the Swahili news on Citizen TV together with Kanze Dena will be taking a break from the spotlight for a while.

Lulu says that she will be bedridden for a while as she recovers from the procedure.

Lulu Hassan

“I will be in bed for some time to recuperate. I would like to thank my family, friends, my boss who constantly reminded me that i needed to do something…Dr Thuranira i dont know how to thank you but you made me have faith with our medical practitioners and introduced me to one Doctor Mogire (He is God sent)…To anyone going through a tough time now…Be encouraged. It shall pass,” Lulu wrote in her Instagram.

The surgery is as a result of an accident Lulu Hassan was involved in back in April 19th 2010.

Lulu narrated the events of that gloomy day.

“I remember this day like it was yesterday…I was going for an assignment in Kisumu but on reaching Kapkatet it all happened so fast…i found myself at the Siloam hospital in Kericho first aid was being administered. Next thing I knew, I was in the ambulance on my way to Nairobi for an emergency theatre at the Aga Khan Hospital. The next few months would be tough. If you would have asked me then if I thought I would be able to walk or be on my feet again, I wouldn’t have imagine that was possible. But; Alhamdullilah !!! It’s been 7 years walking with a plate on my left femur.

Lulu continued, “On the 30th October, 2017 I finally gathered the courage to walk into theatre for a surgery to remove it… I had been relying on this Aluminium plate for the 7 years after the accident in 2010…. 7 years that saw my walking style and body posture change completely thus affecting my back and work not forgetting the excruciating pain i woud have to endure whenever i wanted to lie down…Alhamdullilah after the Monday surgery; the plate is out…i would like to donate the plate to any elderly patient who may need it and cannot afford it.”

She wore hot pants, a pair of white sneakers and a fancy top leaving her ‘voted the best dressed’.

TerryAnne could not hide her excitement and she took to social media to thank her former colleagues for their act of kindness and love.

 

“About today. This is Love! Thanking all my girls for showing me what friendship and family really is about. Here’s to Life, Love and Family. ❤❤❤❤,’ she wrote.

Here Are East Africa’s Showbiz Power Couples (Photos)

The TV celebrity couple is know for gushing over each other in public and this seems to be spicing up things in private. Anyhow, the old adage does say the family that works together stays together…yes, that includes praying together.

The power couple have been working on Kenya’s first ever telenovela dubbed Maza, depicting the unfolding intrigues and drama of a once successful family whose strong bond is crushed by a best friend’s envy in one night..

LOVE WINS! Here’s A List Of Famous Kenyan Couples With A Significant Age Gap

The show that is produced by Lulu Hassan features five main characters Dingo (husband), Lea (Wife), Maya (Daughter), Badi(Son) and Kate (Best friend to wife) through which the plot is realized using other supporting characters.

It flashes back 10 years ago when LEA, DINGO’s wife mysteriously disappears and never to be found or heard again. After years of an emotional roller-coaster, DINGO and his two kids MAYA and BADI must find closure; the court declares LEA officially dead but her cousin sister PILI suspects malice and she is not ready to let go of this matter that easily.

When LEA’s best friend, KATE visits, she is warmly appreciated and becomes the perfect replacement for LEA. Behind the scenes, the family lawyer, WAKILI and KATE have planned for years to settle for LEA’s wealth. Finally when the opportunity knocks, KATE wastes no time. But when she arrives into the mansion as DINGO’s wife, the dark aura that surrounds her – reveals itself. She is a dark witch…and so begins endless family trauma.

Maza is fourth of the 15 new local productions by Maisha Magic East to launch for the year 2017/2018.

Lulu Hassan is the envy of many Nairobi women. She has a job to die for and a cute hubby by her side.

To top that up, her hubby claims her in public, something we cannot say for many city women.

NTV news anchor Rashid Abdalla took to his facebook page to celebrate the eight years the two have been married. They have a son by the name Jibran who will be six years on the 9th Aug, a day after the Kenyan general election.

“Sasa miaka minane, moyoni umetulia

Kamwe hujawa mjane, manani hajaridhia

Alotaka mubanane, mkono nilipungia

Na wako akawa mimi, akajuta mwafulani

Leo wewe ndio mimi, natanua kwa yakini

Ninahisi kama jana, moyo ulivyouteka

Nami nikajitahidi, hasidi kutotucheka

Napenda kuliko jana, nikikumbuka mkeka

Sote si watimilifu, daima tunakanyana

Moyo kuwa mzoefu, tusichoke kupambana

Na tuwe waadilifu, tuepuke kutengana

Namshukuru Muliwa, kwa kunipa hii Lulu.”
