Subhan Allah, it’s been so long since the last post. I remember the way I felt when I was writing it, I was so full of energy and ideas I felt so inspired and then… I just disappeared. There are many reasons but ultimately, it was a combination of being busy and very easily distracted. Admittedly, I’m not a very good multi-tasker.Alhamdulillah, we’re all well and I pray that you all are too Allah bless you all.
I tend to feel a little melancholy towards the end of Ramadhan. I remember as a new Muslim, I would sit there and visualise devils being released from their chains* at the stroke of maghrib like some scary movie, ruining my fairytale Ramadhan happiness. Alhamdulillaah as the years have passed I have stopped the visualisations but the thought still somewhat remains with me….until the Eid Fun begins!
Alhamdulillaah the children have been working hard to maintain both their hifdh and motivation. I’ll go into more detail soon about the motivation problems we’ve experienced and how we have tried to combat them in shaa Allah.
Their progress has definitely motivated their 2 younger brothers to follow in their footsteps so we’ve decided that we’ll be blogging about them too in shaa Allah. they are 7yrs and 4yrs.
Their personalities are quite different to our eldest 2 so we don’t always use the same methods. It’s been really interesting seeing how it has affected our approach.
We’ve received so many wonderful emails and comments filled with love and support. I’m so sorry that we haven’t been able to respond to all of them but we plan to bi-ithnillah.It’s been overwhelming but in a good way. Thank you all so much for your support. Your messages always leave us happy. We see you all as a part of our family and will be making dua for you in the last few hours of fasting that we have left.
I ask Allah to bless you all and grant you goodness in this life and in the next and protection from the fire aameen
