Al-Furqan Ayah 74:
“Our Lord, grant unto us wives and offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and give us the grace to lead the righteous”
Beloved Daughter turns 16 today – an age in Bim where she can now apply for a driver’s permit, finish 5th Form, select some other tertiary education, strive to be the coolness of her parents’ eyes. A long skinny babe stretched out on her father’s chest, a wriggler who always finds the non-existent space between her parents, the kid with unrecognised stamina, the puller of her pillow from beneath her newborn brother’s body, the washer of dolly in the toilet, the snazzy, the cute, the weird, the eclectic, the edgy, dresser, the talker, the helper, the bossy, the domineering, the right even when wrong, the baker, the fuzzy haired, the pimply girl, the HajjBuddy, the vertically challenged, the friend, the dreamer, beloved Niece, beloved Grand-Daughter, defender of her brothers, nag, beloved child.
May Allah swt shower you with His Choicest Blessings and grant you Mercy
