Peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, our beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW.
In all the many entries of this blog since 2019, little to no mention is made about my family.
It does not, of course, mean that they don't mean that much to me. Of course they do, even though the words on this site is always for other things.
You see, as of this moment, one of the things that I'm most grateful to Allah for is to simply have family members to be with and how our relationships have been and still are colourful. Sometimes these beautiful moments happen and you feel your heart smiling inside and only to Allah can you direct that indescribable joy.
Isn't that a great enough blessing from above? Which of the favours of our Lord then, do we deny?
In these final hours before I leave, InshaAllah, one of my frequent Dua(s) is that I'll be able to make the best out of my time here with them. Being the eldest, I can't say that I've satisfyingly fulfilled my responsibility towards my younger siblings but Alhamdulillah for every single second that has passed. I pray that Allah will take good care of their religion and also their worldly affairs.
Another thing that's worth mentioning is it became super obvious to me recently how much sacrifice my parents have made for my sake. Wallahi I don't think I'll ever be able to make it up for everything they've done and only Allah has the best of rewards. It makes total sense now how in the Quran, there's great emphasis on the correct treatment of parents like how we're not supposed to say even the slightest word of disapproval, etc. Subhanallah !
May Allah forgive the sins of all our parents and show mercy on them as they have taken care of us even before we were born. May Allah grant them the highest ranks in Jannah and save them from the torments of the hereafter. And may Allah give us guidance and the strength to treat our parents with the best of treatments until our last breath.
Alhamdulillah for the blessing of family.
This will most probably be my last entry for a very long time. Don't long for my return but instead read the many entries written, and share what is good ✌ May there be at least some benefit to anyone at all, who knows?
Thank you in advance, whoever you are. If you're one of those who stayed since the very beginning, you have my sincere appreciation & adoration. May Allah grant you happiness in both worlds, as you have made me happy when you read what I write : )
Alhamdulillah, for everything.
