The Birth of My Daughter

as-salamu ‘alaykum,

On the Day of Arafah (well on the day the Saudis called Arafah) Wednesday 19th January 2005, my wife gave birth to a beautiful baby girl at 8.10 GMT weighing 7lbs 12oz [3.52 KG]. This is our third child after two boys and unfortunately my wife had suffered two miscarriages prior to this pregnancy and so our little girl is even more special to us. May Allah protect her and make her of the righteous women of this ummah in the character of the az-Zawaj al-Mutahireen and the daughter of the Prophet Fatima al-Zahra and all the righteous Women of the Ummah from start to end, and may this dua extend to all daughters of the ummah!

I have some photos of my baby daughter on my Photo Blog.

wa’as-salam

  1. Marsha’Allah, congratulations, may Allah guide her to a straight path……. Why are your blogs always filled with such hatred and negative comments though??? (“the day the Saudis called arafat”). Why cant u just accept things, especially on such a doubly special day(ie arafat and the birth of a your daughter), without having a dig at somebody?? Half of this website is good, but the other half is just filled with hatred. Why do you have to be like this???
    May Allah guide us.
    Salaam

  2. Assalamu alaikum, congratulations on the birth of your daughter! Especially since your wife suffered two miscarriages before this.

    Just also wanted to point out that your comments on the Saudis dates of Arafat and Eid shouldn’t be taken as hateful. I, myself, wouldn’t describe this site as hateful. I’ve read a lot on this subject and it seems that the Saudis have some problems with the way they determine Islamic dates. If someone points that out, why should that be construed as being hateful? If somethign is wrong, of is someone feels that something is wrong, shouldn’t they point it out? And if it’s pointed out, then why should people get upset about that? Just a thoguht…

  3. salaam! congratulations my brother on the birth of your duaghter! may she be righteous and a spiritual assest for yourself and your wife. My eldest uncle died that very day, so despite the inconsistencies the saudis have in keeping dates, I hope it truly was arafah and Allah accepts him in His Mercy.
