Mash’Allah, children are such an enormous blessing from Allah. I’m invited to a dinner party tonight at the Yacht yesterday and we are still waiting for my husband and the driver to pick us up. While getting the children ready, my 7 year old daughter drilled me with all of her usual questions about life, “Why…?Why…?Why…?” Some I was able to answer but many I was like, “I don’t know.” She looked at me kindly, then politely asked, “Mommy do you know Surah Al- Baqarah?” I assumed she meant had I memorised it, not did I know of it and so I replied, “just a little” She said, “well if you know Surah Baqarah and ‘Amma yatasa ‘alun’ then you would know EVERYTHING!”

Note: Surah Al-Baqarah is the 2nd chapter of the Quran. ‘Amma yatasa ‘alun’ is the first verse in the 78th Chapter of the Quran called Surah Naba’ or The Great News.
