As salaam alaykum warahmatullah!
Look who’s back! Alhamdulillah for all His na’im (mercies) over me and my family. I am finally back from my seemingly never ending hiatus. I apologize for my absence and inconsistencies, may Allah forgive us all. I know a lot of my readers have moved on but hopefully, Inshallah I will regain your ‘followership’ (for lack of a better word) back.
Okay! ‘daff ‘roll please:-) I have good news, alhamdulillah. Allah has given us a pleasant addition to our small family. Imraan was born at 1.05pm on the 9th of January. My husband and I couldn’t be happier and more fascinated. It was a roller-coaster nine months gestation period and delivery was equally eventful, but he’s here and that’s all that matters. It would be an understatement if I said my pregnancy was hard; frankly, it kicked my behind! It is one of those painfully rewarding things that you hear people talk about. Anyways, I believe adjusting to my new life is going to be full of stories, laughter, tears, contentment, love and the whole nine yards! I already have so many funny stories since my son was born that I don’t even know how to fit them all in here to share with everyone. Just the other day, my husband looked at Imraan for a while and said “hmm, new toy! where are the batteries”! He is a funny one, my husband!
Jokes aside though, being a parent is a LOT of work and unlike toys, children don’t come with a manual! Allah’s guidance is what gets one through each day. I pray, sincerely from the bottom of my heart that Allah grants all who seek this wonderful gift and trust from Him, their heart’s desire.
“Our Lord! bestow on us from our wives and our offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and make us leaders for the Muttaqun” Amin.
