Secret #25 - Ramadan Special by Sis Zabrina

With the mixture of tears of sadness and smiles of joy, Secret 25 is the last Ramadan Secret from my book, Life is an Open Secret - Ramadan Special. As this blessed month of Ramadan comes to an end, I hope you have enjoyed reading and sharing the stories, and most of all benefitted from them even in the smallest way.

Let us strive to be steadfast in earning Allah's Pleasure and Love throughout the year, inshaAllah.

Me, my family and my book team would like to wish everyone Selamat Hari Raya 'Aidil Fitri and 'Eid Mubarak!

And most of all, 'Taqabbal Allahu minna wa minkum (May Allah accept from you and us). Aamiin!❤️

Till next time inshaAllah,
Sis Zabrina

“Whoever fasts Ramadan and follows it with six days from Shawwal it is as if they fasted the entire year.”

Quran Captures The Heart - Inspirational Story as a Parent

I was reciting the Quran after Fajr prayers when Tariq woke up. 

He crawled down his bed to me, put his head on my lap and said,

Mama.., can you read for me Surah at-Tariq? Tariq want to hear Surah at-Tariq..

Sure sayang... That's your favourite Surah, isn't it?.., I said to him and immediately bookmarked the last verse I read.

Yes, Mama.. Tariq loves Surah at-Tariq.., he said with twinkle in his eyes and a smile on his face.

I opened the Chapter and started reading..,

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem...
Wasamaa'i wattaariq...
Wa maa adraaka mattariq..
Annajmus saaqib...
In kullu nafsil lammaa 'alaihaa haafiz..
Fal yanzuril insaanu mimma khuliq..
Khuliqa mim maaa'in daafiq..
Yakhruju min bainissulbi wat taraaa'ib..
Innahoo 'alaa raj'ihee laqaadir...

Tariq listens attentively as I read the whole Surah till the end.

I know he doesnt understand a word I was reading but that is the miracle of the Quran. MashaAllah.

We dont even have to know the meaning but it will still capture our hearts. 

Young and old, regardless.

Quran is so important in our lives that one of frequent duaas I make for Tariq is this,

'Ya Allah... please make solat to You (prayers) and Your Quran as the source of tranquility of Tariq's heart and mind..'

May Allah accepts my duaa.. 💗

Secret #24 - Ramadan Special by Sis Zabrina

The Prophet was the most generous amongst the people, and he used to be more so in the month of Ramadan when Jibreel visited him, and Jibreel used to meet him on every night of Ramadan till the end of the month. The Prophet used to recite the Holy Quran to Jibreel, and when Jibreel met him, he used to be more generous than a fast wind (which causes rain and welfare).”
