Alhamdulillah we have reached the first Jumuah of Ramadaan, a day of double blessings!
Our رســــول اللـــه صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ said:
Three supplications are answered, there being no doubt about them: that of a parent, that of a traveller and that of one who has been wronged.
(Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah)
Without the usual Jumuah tradition of a big lunch to cook and cater for, this is the perfect time raise our hands in supplication and to ask Allaah to guide and protect our children.
Its also a good opportunity to teach them about making duaa, to show them how to ask from Allaah, to illustrate to them that your faith lies unshaking in Allaah. More often than not children do what we do, and not what we say. Those little eyes watching us, observe everything we do, and store it away in memory boxes, that are timeless.
May all our duaas be accepted! Ameen
