I begin with - Al fateha

Monday, February 2, 2009


Alhamdullilah, as Allah (swt) has planned for me, I managed to be at Madrasah Khairiah for the talk by Habib Salim As-syateri from Hardramaut Yemen....with Little Adik in tow.

Met many good friends and farmiliar faces and all were excited to meet Adik for the first time.

And Alhamdullilah, Hubby managed to carry Adik who was sleeping the whole time to meet Habib Salim and to get some doa for her. Habib did so and he waved his blessed hands around her heart many times, hubby said.

I'm thankful cos I didn't expect to be there for the talk but it was a last minute decision to drop by there after Isyak Prayers.

The other day, someone told me point blank that Little Habib has gotten many doas from these Alim Ulama's yet he is still very naughty...so whats the point for bringing him to the masjids and also to get doa from orang orang Alim...

You know, I hate it when people say such things....as if they dont know the blessings it has.

Well, I'm still doing it for Adik no less, and I have no regrets bringing my kids to meet these Alims simply because I feel that these acts if done solely for the sake of Allah (swt) will have good repercussions and effects, if not in this lifetime, I will see it in Akhirat. Insya'allah.

I feel that eventhough my son is naughty and sometimes stubborn now, he will grow up to be a good person, a solehin partly because he has received many doas from these Alims and Wali Allah and it will help in shaping his character in future...

so no words of discouragement can bring me down because as we all know, when these Alims make doa, there is a high chance Allah (swt) will grant their prayers.. Amiin...

Dear fren,
No one in this world can teach us how to teach/guide our own very children. They have their style. But we have our OWN UNIQUE way.. Just like you and me.

Hello my fren, ignore what others say...your maternal heart will guide the children to the true path. I remember my arwah dad always bring my brothers when they are younger to be doaed by the alim ulamaks when they were in town. Dont estimate the power of doa k. Take care

Yoohoo! *waves* Me not retired yet!! LOL..

Just dilanda kemalasan sekejap. Dah tak malas sangat skarang. Hehe ;)

Btw, the effects of the du'as won't kick in immediately. Perhaps they will manifest in the near future. This is a phase lah dear. Most of the kids will tone down after four or five. So sabar-sabar lah (coming from an impatient creature like me. so hy-po-criti-cal) besarkan anak. And you have to be firm with co-caregivers too. YOU call the shots. YOU set the limits. YOU are the parent, the mother, no less. Draw the line, and abide by that line. It's not easy, especially when dealing with indulgent grandparents. But it has to be done. In the long run, you will be the one dealing with the repercussions of a misguided childhood.

Ok. Syarahan kedai kopi dah habis.

ps: I wanna see Adik too! :D

That's precisely the spirit sis! As long as we think and feel it's the right thing to do, why bother others? In the end, Allah S.W.T knows best. ^
