I am a wife.. I am a mom.. It all happened so quick.. Met the guy of my dreams.. Fell in love.. Got married.. Became a wife.. And now a mom.. this pic you see up here is what I got mom a few years ago.. I was the li'l girl in the pic.. And now.. Now I'm both, the li'l girl; the daughter and the mommy.. How, when, where..... I dunno.. It's the hardest job I've ever had.. Being a mommy.. I've been so busy being a mom, that I forgot all about being me.. Or is being me being a mom.. Yeah, I guess that's it.. A new me, that involves being a mom.. I'm writing this for me, before anyone else.. To tell myself out loud hey, it's a new me.. A new Sara.. Umm Zeina.. In other words, Umm Noona :) I don't have to only be Umm Noona and forget about me, I can be both, me and Umm Noona.. It's a bigger blessing than I could imagine.. Alhamdulillah :)

Noona is now 15 months old mashaAllah.. And I'm starting to wake up, and have sometime to believe, see and do.. It hit me first time when she started a few days ago calling me "mama" and "mommy".. All the hard work came to a beautiful outcome.. WOW! I've been seriously taking it so seriously, especially that I've been raising her half the time on my own with her daddy being away (to make our lives better, may Allah bless him and keep him safe for us, amen), and all the time without the help of my mom.. I forget to take pics like I always wanted.. Missed recording her first words.. I've been so busy being busy with her.. Maybe I'm slow, but it's all I could do..

NOW.. Now I need to start over.. I need to lay back a bit, watch her, and enjoy her and do all the things I've always wanted to do.. How I wanna let her walk on the green grass and help her not being scared of it like me.. Wanna see her laugh and never fall ill.. She's had a good share of hospitals and being sick.. Oh Allah, please keep her safe for us, my flower, my baby, amen :)

How I miss reading, writing, taking pics, goin in the sun.. Is it just me, or are there moms just like me.. I pray I'd do what's right, all her way long, and let her be our road to heaven, a lovely flower in this world, making it a better place, amen :)

I've missed you bloggy.. Peace out :)

P.S. To the best mom ever, I wish to be like you, I know it's hard, but I'm trying.. Love you mommy! Tatu :) (Noona's way of saying thank you ;)

Maqsood Qureshi said...

Praise be to Allaah.
Al-Bukhaari (4073) and Muslim (1793) narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The anger of Allaah is most intense against a man who is killed by the Messenger of Allaah for the sake of Allaah (on the battlefield).”

Al-Nawawi said:

“For the sake of Allaah” excludes one whom he kills as a hadd punishment or by way of legal retaliation (qisaas), because whoever is killed by the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) on the battle was intending to kill the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).

It is not known that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) killed anyone among the mushrikeen with his own hand apart from Ubayy ibn Khalaf.

That was narrated by Ibn Jareer and al-Haakim from Sa’eed ibn al-Musayyab and al-Zuhri (may Allaah have mercy on them). Ibn Katheer said in his Tafseer (2/296): its isnaad is saheeh.

Ibn al-Qayyim said – when discussing the battle of Uhud –

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) turned towards the Muslims, and the first one who recognized him beneath his armour was Ka’b ibn Maalik, who shouted at the top of his voice, “O Muslims! Rejoice! This is the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)!” He gestured to him to be quiet, and the Muslims gathered around him and went with him to the mountain pass where he had camped. Among them were Abu Bakr, ‘Umar, ‘Ali, al-Haarith ibn al-Simmah al-Ansaari and others. When they got close to the mountain, Ubayy ibn Khalaf, who was on a horse of his whose name was al-‘Iwadh, caught up with the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). The enemy of Allaah had claimed that he would kill the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) whilst riding this horse. When he got close to him, the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) took a spear from al-Haarith ibn al-Simmah and killed him with it. It hit him in his collarbone and the enemy of Allaah retreated in defeat. The mushrikeen said to him, By Allaah, there is nothing wrong with you. He said, By Allaah, if what is wrong with me had happened to the family of Dhu’l-Majaaz, they would all have died. He used to feed his horse in Makkah and say, I will kill Muhammad riding it. News of that reached the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and he said: “Rather I will kill him in sha Allaah.” When he stabbed him, the enemy of Allaah remembered that that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) had said, “Rather I will kill him,” and he was certain that he would die from this wound. And he died from it in Sarif on his way back to Makkah.

Zaad al-Ma’aad, 3/199

And Allaah knows best.
