In the name of Allah,The beneficent,The merciful.
All praise is due to Allah, The Lord of the worlds,The All Hearing,The Answerer of prayers.
After the birth of my 18 months old baby, I had not resumed my menstrual cycle which i assume maybe i have not been ovulating( I may be wrong, not an O&B expert!) At the start of last ramadhan,I drew up my list of wants which I presented to Allah throughout the month among which included a request for another child.(specifically,a son.guess it is allowed).
After my husband passed on,funny enough,I resumed a very regular menstrual cycle and each time the blood came,I usually feel bad wishing I was just pregnant.Though at each time I accepted Allah’s decree and moved on until last saturday when….
I was watching a programme on channels T.V when a couple who are richly blessed and highly influential was featured with a child that has a developmental problem called “cerebropalsy”. I’m not too sure I got the name of the condition well but it’s a condition that has to do with brain development.Then something told me,”How sure are you that if you were pregnant,it’s not going to be a child with developmental problems” And then, I started giving thanks.
How was it going to be like having a child with issues without the father around to give his own support. I just reminded myself that there are plenty goodies in that prayer that was not answered.
Do you have any request that is taking time to be answered? I’m sure that there are a lot of goodies in that delay. Just remind yourself of the so many good things we’ve gotten from Allah,especially the ones we know that we do not deserve and He has bestowed upon us.For verily, if we are to count our blessings,never will we be able to exhaust them!
All goodness therein is from Allah and all errors from me.
Wasalamu alaykum warahmatullah wabarakatuh.
