I was having a difficult time yesterday and sometimes I love to share what I am going through with Zayd just to see how he will respond. I never have any expectations of what he would say, so more of than not I will be quite surprised listening to things that he came up with. And yesterday’s one really top the list for me.
Mummy: Zayd, I am feeling a bit upset today.
Zayd: Hmm..maybe you should rest.
Mummy: But I am not tired, I am upset. (made a sad face) (and also I cried a little bit before that so he knew I was in a somber kind of mood).
Zayd: Maybe you should make dua to Allah. And Allah will make you feel happy and not sad anymore.
I am really touched and cried again (yes it’s the hormonal times of the month) and could not believe that he could give such advice. It was really interesting how he could relate feeling/emotion to Allah at such young age.
Sometimes I wonder how much he understands what he was saying, or even what I was saying to him – but I am grateful because somehow by the grace of Allah, the idea is already planted in his mind.
May Allah keep the consciousness, the love and the awe of Him ever steady and growing in his little mind ameen.
