The Simple Life

‘Read! In the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who Created-‘

(Surah Al Alaq, verse 1, the first Revelation)

Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh, my dear brothers and sisters.

The boys had lunch at SushiKing restaurant yesterday, followed by ice-cream for Adam and donuts for Daniel. As we were walking towards the car, Adam said to me, ‘Thank you,Mummy, may Allah bless you for a great day.’

Masha’Allah! That was so sweet of him. It was just lunch and a dessert after but for them, it was a nice treat. I guess there might be a few people who’d probably be thinking, ‘What a cheapskate mother!’ but I don’t believe having treats should be an expected privilege but instead, an unexpected reward for the boys.

This is my way of teaching the boys to be grateful for the good things they receive in their lives and what better way than through a simple meal. Allah knows best.
