Assalamualaykum wr wbt,
Narrated Sahel Ibn Sa’ad (RA): that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: ‘Two will not be rejected, Supplication when the Adhan (call of prayer) is being called, and at the time of the rain’.
[Al-Hakim 2: 114, and Abu Dawud #2540, ibn Majah]
Alhamdulillah alhamdulillah alhamdulillah.
Today’s the best of days and it’s raining. Double bonus points to make duaa. And in these rainy days, the heart becomes nostalgic thinking about the very frequent rains back at home. Those days where I would either play in the rain or just sit by the windows listening to the sounds of the raindrops.
Homesick- according to my dictionary it means something that this tiny amatullah always feel for a consistent of 7 years. Away from both her wonderful parents (not a wonderful child though) and missing the warm hugs of her gigantic two younger brothers. Missing the kisses of her aunts and grandmothers and her favourite cousins. Missing them climbing you asking them how are you in the most sweetest voices ever. Missing the smell of her room, with books she collected since she was 5 and callings of her mother of her full name (yeap, full name) when she missed her chore and pretended that she was sleeping. And missing the times she just sit down with her grandparents and listening to their chats and tales of life. Of the living and the dead. And certainly homesick is something she always continue to rant in her space in blog. Plus, she knows well it’s either her best friend in Sarawak is reading this or her dearest father who comes back from work, and the first thing that he reads is the typings of this.
SubhanAllah. Being away from your comfort zone, is indeed a blessing. Allah azza wa jalla Is Teaching you about perseverance, independance and appreciating your loved ones more. It’s a blessing, in disguise. And deep in my minds I know I owe my parents a bigger amanah (repsonsiblity) once I get back. Dreading the fact that I hate if my own children have to live away from me, but if it’s for him or her to grow and learn about the temporariness of this world, I would say, go ahead. (with a very heavy hrmmmm, then tawakkul will slowly come creeping insh’Allah)
Alhamdulillah for having such strong parents, Ayah & Ibu for giving the very best for this child of theirs despite being the most noisiest person on earth (that’s me) and always creating trouble. (hehe) No wealth neither the whole world and its contents can repay what they have done for me, and for that I’m very very grateful. Thank You Allah. Do Grant them the highest levels of Your Love, Mercy, Blessings, in Jannatul Firdaus and this world. Grant them patience and quwwah and grant them abundance of barakah in every second they do. Far away from eyes, yet near at heart. Insh’Allah.
(Yes, and they want you more than anything else- that’s my parents.)
Allah Knows Best.
