Your World


My Dear Son,

Today, I looked at you and I thought, What world will you grow up in? Today, a day of injustices and malice, it doesn’t matter whether you are 7 or 70, people are killing people like flies, and I think to myself, this is your world, this is the world in which you were born. This is the place you will grow up in. SubhanaAllah. Only Allah, Most Merciful, knows… In the end, we are all mere creations following a Divine Plan. May Allah, Most Merciful, continue to shelter you from the evil of this world. May He, Most Merciful, keep your soul pure, from beginning to end. Ameen. May He, Most High, help us show you a world of love and understanding. May we always be able to make your home a safe abode, an escape from the world outside and a remembrance of Allah’s Mercy. Ameen.

With love,
Mommy

Blessings and Love


My Dear Son,

Today, I feel extra blessed, Alhamdulilah. InshaAllah, we will be on our way soon… To Arabia… Alhamdulilah, we’ve got the yellow slip now, so things can speed up nicely. I am so grateful for this, Alhamdulilah. We’ll be a happy, little family in the desert. 🙂

Today, I also feel especially grateful for your father, Alhamdulilah. I read a brilliant, eye-opening, little story today, one of those stories that just make you feel blessed. One of those stories that you just feel Allah (SWT) guided you to.  It was a beautiful love story that could have had a sad ending. It made me think of my beautiful love story with your father, and then it also made me cry a bit over a broken love story that I know about. My son, may you never have a broken love story, Ameen, and may your parents’ love story inspire you always. Ameen.

With love,
Mommy

The love story I read

At The Dentist


My Dear Son,

Yesterday, I went to the dentist. It was your first time at the the dentist, even though it wasn’t an actual visit for you. I needed to extract my wisdom tooth, the last one that was left. As I laid on the reclining chair alone in the dentist’s room, I had time to think. So, I thought about you. I thought about all the experiences you have ahead of you. Some of which neither your father nor I will be able to really help you with. Events like first days, making friends, competitions, exams, wisdom tooth extractions…

And now I’m getting ahead of myself and thinking about right down the line… institution applications, job applications, marriage proposals… Okay, I need to stop right there. And when the time does come, I need to remember the famous quote: “Love is in the letting go” and I need to know what to do: continue to make dua.

This morning, after you awoke, the first words that came from your sweet lips were “Mama mama”. 🙂

As you laid in my arms, just a few minutes ago, before I put you down for your nap, I gazed at you with sheer pleasure. Such peace and contentment you have over your face as you enter Dreamland.

May I always carry and cherish all these little memories of you. May you always fill my heart with joy. Ameen.

With love,

Mommy

My Dear Son


My Dear Son,

Where do I start? Assalamu’alaikum is always a good start. May the peace and blessings of the Beloved Allah, Most Merciful and Compassionate, always be with you. Ameen.

I have decided to write letters to you expressing my love for you, and my Love for your Creator, Allah, Most Merciful. It is my hope that these letters will one day draw you even closer to Your Creator. Ameen.

My dear son… You are my dear, adorable son, mashaAllah, and I am your mother. This is a new experience for both of us… A new love. I cannot fathom any love for you greater than mine and your father’s, except the Love of your Creator. The One that moulded you loves you more than anyone ever could. Always remember this.

With love,
Mommy
