Dear Mom,
You lived your life like a say'ee...
Running back and forth to earn a living for us, and to fill our lives with material and spiritual goodness...
From living beauty to living prayer, you were everything to us; to your family; to your students; to the society; to the world...
Allah swt made you perfect! Perfect in beauty, complete in personality and faultless in character!

He swt filled your heart with strength, pateince, love, belief and purity!
He swt designed you like the angels. He gave your smile the brilliance of the stars.
He swt made you fragrant like flowers and bright like sunshine!

And then He swt gave you to us; to your off-spring!

We loved you and cuddled inside you... We did not do anything to earn your prayer, yet you prayed for us! You brought smiles our way, while we never realized how difficult it was for you...

You answered our questions and held our hand till  fear gripped our heart...

You sang to us while we slept, you stroked our hair when we cried...

And when we were old enough to fly away from the nest, you closed your eyes,
And went into eternal slumber!

We wailed, we wept... Nothing was of avail... Allah swt had tried and tested you... You had earned His pleasure and done your part in our lives... The time had arrived and you were summoned!

Oh how I miss you Mom, uptill this day... This day when you would have completed 64 years of your life... But have not been with us to celebrate it for the past 8 years!

Your life was full of lessons for us, as was your demise...
We learned the reality and the purpose of existence in the way you gracefully accepted what Fate held for you!

We continue to make duaa for your eternal journey to be smooth and beautiful...
Complete, with angels and palaces and fruits!

There is nothing I can do to bring you back, to hug you and win your love...
Which is why, there are still many things that I will leave unsaid!

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem!
I just realized the other day that I dont begin my posts with Allah swt's name!
It surprised me that I had missed it all this while!
And then to think that He still made each post better than the other for my readers!
So now i'll make it a point to begin all posts with Bismillah IA!

This post can not probably be considered a proper post. It will not be of the length and detail that a blog post requires to be called a blog post. Yet, I just had to write these few lines that I found very special!

 I could not help but thank Allah swt for the beautiful man He has united me with!
Little Friend can say the best things without even knowing how special each word is!
He told me recently, during a very normal conversation at the dinner table, that I was the answer to his duaas from Allah swt! Imagine how touched I was! There could not be a feeling more special than the one I got at hearing these words! I am an ordinary human being, with a very ordinary personality, moreover with a very ordinary  appearance! And I have known all along that my hubby holds me very dear in his heart! But these words are historic!
Alhumdulillah! I hope and pray that all muslimahs land even loevlier husbands, Ameen! I realized the sanctity of Nikah and the importance of marriage in deen! Alhumdulillah! It is a beautiful unison, especially from Allah swt! SubhanAllah!
I love Little Friend for the little things he says that change my perception on life each time, alhumdulillah!
There could not be a better match for me than him, alhumdulillah!
Truly all pairs are made in heaven! Wow! SubhanAllah!
