All Praise is due to Allah, so we praise Him, and seek His pardon and we turn to Him. We seek refuge with Allah from the evils of ourselves and from the evil consequences of our deeds. Whom Allah guides aright there is none to lead him astray.
We are excited to let you know that on Monday, 2nd February 2009 at 2318 hrs; our third child entered our world. She arrived weighing a petite 3.2kg and 50cm long. The mother and baby are doing fine; we are a little bit exhausted though!
We have not stopped in expressing our utmost gratitude to Allah for His great love and blessings which were very present throughout the baby’s journey to our arms. Big brother Ammar Luqman and Big Sister Khadeeja Nasyrah are intrigued and delighted with their new sister. Thank you to our wise and cool doctor, Dr. Seri Suniza Sufian, and wonderful midwives – who made this a perfectly rich experience possible. I feel truly blessed that I have married Fara, who is the lovely mother to our children. I am incredibly blessed to be her husband and the father of our three children. I absolutely adore them.
I love Luqman for his old-soul; sometimes he has the insight and ability to understand life far beyond his years. He has a gentle spirit and wears his heart on his sleeve. He is cautious and contemplative. He is our thinker and builder. His “creativity” often places him on the periphery of childishness and disobedience. He is our snuggle bug, with a book and a blanket. He is our first-born son, our little man of the house. He has the brightest eyes that touch the deepest parts of his parents’ soul.
I love Khadeeja for her happy-go-lucky spirit, yet she’s a loving, caring girl and has a huge servant’s heart. Sometimes she is an active girl in cutoffs, digging in the mud; sometimes busy running around with her own set of colored pencils to assist her brother with his homework. At 26 months she is my wife’s loyal assistant, and our constant reminder that we are training her how to be a dutiful Muslimah. She is our beautiful girl, with big brown eyes and her nose.
The birth of our third child is truly a self-evident proof of Allah’s continued blessings upon our family. We are humbled by His grace and blessings, and we thank you to all family members and friends for the dua, kind words, emotional support and visits.
