Eid Mubaraq...

Eid Mubaraq..... : )

No matter how I try to run away from being involve in the festivities, I tend to love it back again when we relatives and friends meet.....Its always so nice to catch up.

These days, Ive been too caught up with mothering duties that I do not have the time to blog. My journey through motherhood and Ihsan continues to be tested with lots of ups and downs, but Alhamdullilah, I am managing.

The children are such a joy to look after no matter how difficult they can be. Often, when taking care of their fussiness, crankiness and moodiness, I wonder, who else can be more patient than me, their mother. No maid or helper can be as patient as I am or give them as much love as I can, because simply, they are MINE.

I cant wait to go back to the workforce, however, I am worried for Adik as she is clinging on to me like a little monkey. You know what I mean right. I worry for the kids if I were to go back to work, but it must be done in order to achieve our aspirations.

The cure of being worried all the time is to have absolute faith in Allah (swt) and to lay your worries to Allah (swt) only. I noticed, my heart has been more at peace eversince, I started practising this zikir :
Hasbiyal laahu laa ilaaha illa huwa alaihi tawakkaltu wa huwwa Rabbul arshil azeem.

حَسْبِيَ اللّهُ لا إِلَـهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ عَلَيْهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ وَهُوَ رَبالْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ(129)

say: Allah is sufficient for me, there is no god but He; on Him do I rely, and He is the Lord of mighty power.

With that, I am walking the straight path, trying to be a good mother and person and to do the best I can with whatever that I face. Insya'allah.


Our colour for this Raya is Dark Purple. However, I ditched Adik's purple kebaya for a more comfortable pink blouse for obvious reasons.

Purple is our colour this year. Even Aunty Nurul joined in.


The kids with their 'smelly pillow' which Abang affectionately calls "Babbut"...and they love biting the corners. What can I say... these pillows are "god sent" !

Thanks Kak... alhamdullilah, I do what I can with my outmost commitment when it comes to the kids. Sometimes I fall short and is so disappointed with myself eg when Adik falls of the bed or when Abang gets rashes cos of his sweaty body, but I try to tell myself that mothering does not come with a handbook to guide me. hee...

and for the zikir, its in Surah At Taubah ayat 129. do it after subuh and Asar minimum 7xs.

حَسْبِيَ اللّهُ لا إِلَـهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ عَلَيْهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ وَهُوَ رَبالْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ(129)

say: Allah is sufficient for me, there is no god but He; on Him do I rely, and He is the Lord of mighty power.

Sis, I'm glad you came to know about this zikir. I've been doing it for years by the will of Allah swt... it's soothing for the heart as well. Yes, subuh and asar. And if I may add, try to recite surah sawd every day... insya allah. :)

Hope you have a blessed weekend. :)
