Alhamdulillah

After days of stop start contractions and a false alarm, I was blessed with my fifth child, a healthy little girl, last Friday morning at dawn.

I am feeling so very grateful, awed, achey, exhausted and overwhelmed right now.

Alhamdulillah for the blessings of little ones, of helpful family, health, kind neighbours, good friends and this faith which is the only thing that gets us through the hardest times to blessed ones.

Alhamdulillah for that sweet baby smell, for those tiny fingers and those smiles that babies smile in their sleep.  Alhamdulillah for the big kids who help their mum, for mum-in-law who has been holding the front with cooking and cleaning despite her poor health and for sisters who have been fulfilling my to-do lists.

I am so grateful for the kind comments, e-mails, offers of help and encouragement from sisters.  Most of all I am humbled and grateful for your dua's which are so very precious to me.

























I have so much to share and I will start blogging again and answering comments and e-mails soon once I find my feet, things calm down a little and my head stops spinning.

  3. Thanks to Allah for this blessing! Was quite worried at not seeing a new post from you for the last several days. Was it because of some serious complication, or some long hospitalization: It's a relief to see you back blogging.

    May Allah keep showering you with His blessings!

    قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: «مَنْ عَالَ ثَلَاثَ بَنَاتٍ، فَأَدَّبَهُنَّ، وَزَوَّجَهُنَّ، وَأَحْسَنَ إِلَيْهِنَّ، فَلَهُ الْجَنَّةُ»
    Allah's Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said:
    Whoever raises three daughters, teaches them Adab (Islamic etiquettes), marries them and (all through the years) is kind towards them, gets Jannah.
    Abu Dawud: 5147

    May Allah grant you the Jannah in the Hereafter now that He has granted you the first part of this Hadith (three dauthters).
