We’ve been away for a very long time subhan Allaah! There have been a few different reasons but alhamdulillaah we are all good and healthy now.
Even though we’ve been away we’ve all still been working really hard.
During Ramadhan they had a bit of a boost with their hifdh. They finished Surah Yusuf quite quickly and carried on memorising at a much faster pace maa Shaa Allaah. My daughter (now 11yrs) decided that she wanted to move ahead of her brother (9yrs) and learn more than him per day so we agreed to help her. She increased her daily portion bit by bit and seemed to be managing it really well and even enjoying the new amount. Subhan Allaah one of the nicest things for me has been to see her so much more confident. A few years ago she was complaining that she wasnt “good at hifdh like her brother” and here she was now learning 5 pages a day Allaahu akbar!
This increase towards the end of hifdh is something that I’ve always read about but to see it happening has been amazing subhan Allaah.
It also has really encouraged my son to increase his daily portion too alhamdulillaah.
It has definitely not been easy keeping up with the rewards and mini parties lol they’ve just been moving too fast.
My exciting news is that now today as of this morning my daughter has just 11 pages left to finish round 1 of hifdh! My son has arrived at 24 ajzaa May Allaah bless them both aameen.
I’m not too far behind but still a distance from them …moving along *smiles*
Honestly I am still a little shocked at how quickly it all happened subhan Allaah.
The dua of the parent for their child is accepted so I must continue to ask Allaah to make it easy for them now and the rest of their lives to retain His speech in their hearts and that it preserve them from harm and that He love them for it ameen.
May Allaah accept our efforts from us as good deeds aameen
