Making sure all the times my girls think of me, I want them to remember Allah (subhanallahu wa T’ala).
Whenever anyone makes du’a for us, we need to be humble and thankful to Allah for this.
Give thanks to Allah. Praise Allah. Ask for forgiveness from Allah. Make du’a to Allah. Ask for help from Allah.
For us, it’s taking my time to do a different hair-style for each daughter, just by combing and staring at a bag of colorful hair ties to creatively come up with something new each day.
Of course, my whole purpose is to keep my girls tidy, neat, and clean so their eyes aren’t irritated by hair falling or flying around, so they can study with ease.
Little did I know it would be a conversational-starting point to learn more Arabic and to gain du’as because others find out that our only purpose to learn Arabic is for the Qur’an and our deen (way of life) as Muslims, etc.
So, small things like intending to keep our kids clean and tidy and help them study better (which is all sunnah) can and will bring blessings throughout our days—so make sure our kids always remember Allah for their glorious blessings, inshaAllah Ta’ala.
So, we’re curious, what do you do so your kids remember you while they’re away from you each day? And, in turn, how have you changed or how can you change it to their remembrance of Allah? Please share these deep thoughts and experiences in the comments section below.
