Will my happiness and checking account sustain at this current mindset I am in well into a month of me owning this thing?But a commenter warned her against making judgements based upon what individuals post on social networks: Who are we as mere humans to evaluate an individual’s intents? since from what I understand, an individual’s intents is between them and Allah.

quite pricey, it does not cater to the high-end market.
