The miracle is right here…

The miracle is right here…

I have witnessed the birth of my daughter Zainab and it’s truly a miracle of Allah. A bounty and favor that Allah has bestowed upon me and my family.

I remember when we used to discuss that she was  2 cm long, then a handspan then 2 handspans and now she’s a healthy being staring at the world with exploratory eyes. I thank Allah for His Mercy to me and my family. This also reminds me to be thankful for all the other “little things,” that I take for granted everyday.

As the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) advised us, the best way to stay thankful to Allah is to count His favours in our lives everyday, for Allah says, “And He giveth you of all that ye ask for. But if ye count the favours of Allah, never will ye be able to number them. Verily, man is given up to injustice and ingratitude.” [Surah Ibrahim 14:34]

This statement of Allah is so true, yet we put so little value on it, and do not take heed. The very fact that Allah has guided us to Islam and the sunnah of His Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), in itself should be a source of continual praise. Allah says, “Surely We have shown him the way: he may be thankful or unthankful.” [Surah Al Insan 76:3]

O Allah! Protect my baby in the Perfect Words of yours from every devil and every beast, and from every envious blameworthy eye and make her a preceding reward and stored treasure for us all. Ameen!
