A new born for my son Azrul and wife Sarah. Alhamdulilah. A first grand daughter of five grandchildren for us and a second child for Azrul and Sarah. Oh! what an excitement. She looks almost like the mother, fair and beautiful. My late mother in law would usually have a lot of beautiful adjectives for a bundle of joy like that. On the seventh day of her birth, she would be officially named Balqis Raihana.
Sarah will have a little problem managing the new born because the maid has just resigned before the Eid. But I have no doubt Azrul will work harder to help around. Tomorrow she will go back to her mother's house in Kedah to rest and do the "pantang". It is about 40 days of strict rituals to make sure mother and baby will be strong and healthy, insyaAllah.
May Allah bless Azrul's young family and may they grow stronger each day submitting to the will of the most Loving, most Merciful.
