From The Roots

They say that to nurture and instill good behaviour in children you have to start from the very beginning. Not by raising your voice or physical violence, but to make a firm statement and be firm with your decision. I guess it is something like 'no means no.' This way, the child will be able to recognise your tone when you are upset. 

When I was pregnant, if I don't have time to read the Quran I'll just play it while I sleep. Even after she's born, I noticed that she'll be quiet when I pray and making dua. I will always read my dua so that she can hear it too and she'll always smile when I mention her name.

Recently she has been very curious towards everything! Yesterday while Farid was reading the Quran she was jumping excitedly to be with him. 

I'm happy to be a mother and not a day goes by that I do not pray to become a better person for her sake. I'm far from perfection and I have a fair share of mistakes, flaws and sins that I have commited along the way. I just pray that I'll be able to improve every single day. I also pray that Aleesya will be a good muslim, be blessed in everything that she does and be rewarded Jannah in the hereafter.
