Birthday / Doa Selamat...

I started my day fine and had it all planned out.

Woke up early to clean and mop, and bought the bread. Breakfast then wait for cake delivery. After lunch, I was suppose to put the "star" of the show to sleep after his afternoon milk so that by the time the majlis started, he would be all bright and happy.

But it turns out, what I had planned was not meant to be. Yes, Little Habib drank his milk at 12.30pm and was asleep by 12.45pm but at 1pm, he coughed in his sleep and vomitted out pleghm and milk causing him to cry and I had to change his clothes and wash the pillow cover.

Soon after my sister came to do some decorations and of cos, the birthday boy could not go back to sleep cos he knew his aunt there. I relented and allowed him out of his bedroom so that he can play with the baloons. Then, 1 baloon burst in his face, again another round of crying and he vomitted out his lunch this time, on my clothes. Nasib, not my party clothes. Apa Lagi, the both of us hit the bath, while my sleeping hubby had to get up and wipe the vomit.

By 3pm, my family came over and mum prepared the salad. Birthday boy upon seeing his grandpa Dada, became hyperactive jumping here and there. We arranged the furnitures and got things ready.

Hubby left around 4.45pm to pick up Ustaz, while our guest, just close family and neighbours came strolling in. : )

Little Habib in his party suit, bought by Grandma Dadi. Thanks Mum !

All ready and waiting for Ustaz to arrive. I love that smile, macam little Doctor pakai bow tie !

To add to the occasion, I bought Winnie the Pooh Party Items.

Food cooked by MaK Ngah... Bamiyaah, french loaf, Mum's salad and peanut sauce and Mak Ngah's complimentary gave Mee Hoon Putih.
Dessert included, Mak Uchu's cocktail Jelly, MIL's agar agar Gudil and Dad ordered Creame Puff.

Slight decoration and buffet table.

Ustaz Hasan who is our long time friend, came to grace the majlis and also lead the doa selamat. Ustaz tried to joke with birthday boy, but birthday boy was scared and just cling on to his Mamu Izhar.

Started with a short tahlil, syarahan and ended with Doa Selamat. I loved it that Ustaz mention our Habaibs names and tawassul against them and doa for our dear birthday boy to be alim and follow the sunnah of our prophet Muhammad (saw).
Ustaz Hasan gave a short sharahan about 15-20 minutes about the importance of remembering afterlife and doing more amal to bring with us.
He reminded us that this world is just a loan from Allah (swt) to us. The time belongs to Allah (swt) and we should not mis-use the time becuase one day, kiamat will happen as Allah (swt) will take back the time.
Only the ones who are safe will come to Allah (swt) with a peaceful heart. Who are these people ? They are the ones who have follows God's orders, jalankan perintah Allah (swt). Only that can save us. Ustaz reminded us to use our wealth for amal ibadah.
While Ustaz was giving the syarahan, our birthday boy fell asleep! alamak apa macam punya "little Habib" ni.... hee...

After the syrahan, the makan was served, and the men were engaged in another topic... asking Ustaz for his opinion on certain current affair issues.

Not forgetting, this is what the birthday cake looks like this year. Dark Chocolate Truffles from Royal Cake. I couldnt not find anywhere that sold Halal 'Winnie the Pooh' cake. Later I found out that I could get it at Blossoms. But its okie, we enjoyed the cake.. too sweet for some though.

Birthday Boy woke up 10 minutes before 7pm, so we proceeded to read Al-Fatiha and sang the customary birthday song, "Allah selamatkan Kamu".... Groggy Birthday boy didnt wanna see the cake and clung on to his Abah as he malu everyone was looking at him. He even refuse to open his eyes...so Ummi had to cut the cake lah.

The majlis continued past Magrib when Hubby's masjid friends came. That was a last minute invitation as hubby wanted some alim friends to come, eat and bring some berkat too. Turns out one of them was fasting, so more pahala for us when we serve him food for buka puasa..Alhamdullilah. Food too was not wasted as everything was finished except, 1/4 of the cake left.
The last guest left around 9pm and my family helped to clean up. Mum's helper was such a big help as she managed my kitchen happily and I was so touched everything was put back into place cos everyone helped to vacumm and mop and arrange the furniture back.
By 10pm, I was ready for my shower and Birthday boy was on the bed with his milk. Dadima slept over to accompany birthday boy.
My elder bro drove back from KL to see his only nephew and I could tell my family was happy to see him. Overall, Im satisfied with the majlis despite the earlier glitches.
Of cos, my favourite part was the doa selamat and the syarahan, something different I find. Anything else was just for the fun of it. : )
