‘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.
My sons asked me to drive to my sister’s house this morning because they wanted to see the rat that had been caught. (‘Huh..?’ LOL!)
But true to their khalifah potential, they didn’t react with ‘Ewww…!’ but with interest and wisdom. Adam walked away from looking at the rat in the cage, saying, ‘Wow! I never knew the rat’s nose is so long.’ and Daniel reminding Makcik Lis to ‘Don’t kill it but take it far away and let it go.’
Alhamdulillah. They understood it was still Allah’s creation and had given it’s existence some dignity. Even if it was just a rat.
