My Raya’s 'Best Moment'



A friend asked me what was the best moment I had during raya.

I think it was when I waved to my eldest son as he walked away with his father to go and pray at the mosque that raya morning.

He looked so proud and happy to be going with his dad – to be 'a man', so to speak. And it was wonderful to wake him up early that morning and look into his face when he asked me, ‘Is it Raya, mom?’ and then later, after he has showered and was already wearing his ‘new’ shirt to go for prayers, he asked me brightly, ‘Do I look smart?’.

Bless.

It is amazing how he has grown from the little chubby baby he was 5 years ago.

I will always remember that look he gave me as he walked away with his dad, to go for sembahyang raya, this Raya in 2006.

Sigh...yes. Tell me about it...you should hear the things that come out of Hamzah's mouth! Amazing that a 2 year old can speak the way he does.

And Hasan's maturity is apparent when we refuse him something he wants. He'll sigh and say, 'Oookaaay...' (in a resigned way) and will never ever sulk! What else can you expect from a person whose name actually means 'good'. He is a good boy.

Alhamdulillah.
