"I seek protection for you in the Perfect Words of Allah from every devil and every beast , and from every envious blameworthy eye"She is the image of her mama and hasn't been named yet, so is being called princess at the moment (I suspect that might stick).
Funnily enough, she was born on Little Lady's 10th birthday, so the youngest and oldest grandchildren in the family now share a birthday. I have been a mum for 10 years and have 9 nephews and nieces from my husband's family (number 10 on the way soon), but they are all far away in Pakistan. This is the first one in my family and I am over the moon at finally being a proper aunt (or as I explained to Princess at the hospital "I am your big puppo (paternal aunt) and all of these are the extra ones").
Any excuse for cake and sweets with our lot.
Congratulations to the new mum and dad. Please make dua that they enjoy the challenging and rewarding days ahead as new parents and that Allah (SWT) makes this beautiful challenge easy for them insh'Allah. I make dua that Allah (SWT) brings the blessing of a little one in their arms to those who yearn for it and for ease and comfort for my expectant sisters insh'Allah.
