The Reality of Our Soul : Inspirational Story as a Parent


That day around noon, I was taking my Qailullah or siesta as per the advice of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to help reset and recharge both my brain and energy.😴😴😴

Then I heard Tariq's gentle voice,

... Mama.. Mama.. please wake up now.. Tariq feel alone and lonely.., said Tariq

As I opened my eyes,  Tariq's face was right in front of my face.

... Tariq, Mama is right here.. How can you feel lonely..?, I asked

.. Kan Mama said when we sleep, our soul leave our body for a while.. So when Mama sleep just now, Tariq feel Mama is not here with me.. That's why Tariq feel alone and lonely.., said Tariq with a sad voice

Allah... 🥺

I was so taken by his words.

Yes, that is exactly what I taught Tariq.

That when we sleep, our souls leave our body. And whether it comes back or not, it is all in Allah's Will.

We have no control whatsoever to this.

Like if we plan to stay awake at night but Allah recalled our soul, we will fall asleep without even realizing. Similarly if we want to sleep but Allah doesn’t recall our soul, we will be blinking staring at the ceiling the whole night.

Thus, I taught Tariq that we should always sleep with our wudhu, we should always recite Ayatul Kursi and all the 3 Quls to protect us when we are asleep, we should recite Tasbih, Tahmid and Takbir; and no matter how sleepy and tired we feel, we must try to make sure that the last words that we utter and the last heart beat of our conscious-self before slowly falling asleep is the proclamation that There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is His Messenger.. 💕

Coz just in case our soul doesn't come back into our body and leave our body permanently...

Although I felt sorry that Tariq felt quite alone and lonely when I slept just now, at the same time I was so thankful to Allah that somehow Tariq has understood, internalised and applied this important knowledge of the reality of our soul, alhamdulillah

Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah 💖

Only to You, I say my gratefulness ya Allah, Thank you Ya Rabb..

Mama.... wake up please... Tariq feel alone and lonely...🥺

Kan Mama said when we sleep our soul leaves our body... said Tariq
