The Day My Life Changed

823826_family_concept_1.jpgAssalamu-Alaykum – Peace be Upon you)

The day of my marriage:

I was sat there next to the Imam as he read the Khutba (sermon), read the names of the witnesses and then turned to me and asked if I accept the person as my wife. I will never forget that moment…that deep black hole feeling in my belly thinking ‘Damn that’s it, I’m a married man after this!’, those couple of seconds were like, ‘Wow! My life will change forever from this point forth’ – but now I have been given bigger and better news…

My wife had been feeling sick for couple of weeks. She had the usual symptoms, not eating, not feeling very nice, I thought she must have caught a nasty bug, especially with the recent weather changes.

I remember she cried at night holding me tight whilst she found it very difficult to breathe. Then the scary thought of a new baby crossed our minds, so we decided to check if she was pregnant before going to see the doctor.

Life goes on per usual and I had to go to work like any other day. Whilst sat at my desk at work, my wife decided to take the test. She broke the news to me that I am going to be a father through a quick and teary phone call. That point I was struck with such a feeling I can not explain. The joy inside me made me want to jump up and scream but just like my wedding it hit me: ‘DAMN there will be mini me calling me daddy!!?? Me..the big kid is going to be a daddy! I still get shouted by my own dad and now someone calling me dad!! This is unbelievable.’

Once the information sank in I thought, ‘How cool is that!’ That feeling of joy and happiness was just so overwhelming. The emotions in my body were all over, my tongue even went numb for a few seconds. I wanted to jump on my desk whilst on the phone with a client and just scream with joy- don’t ask how I did not scream!! Trust me that has to be the hardest thing to do ever. Trust me the feeling I cannot even put it down into words.

Allah has blessed me with many wonderful things in life, my family, my friends and now insha-Allah (with the Will of Allah), Allah will bless me and my wife with a child. I still remember when she broke the news, it felt like my insides wanted to jump out and just say woohoo!!

My wife says she was so over the moon she did the test twice!! And both times that feeling of just pure amazement was just as magnificent. The smile on her face just makes it all worthwhile.

Each night when I sleep, I sleep with a smile on my face and think how lucky I am.

The only thing I ask of you is to make Dua (supplicate) that Allah makes my wife’s pregnancy easy and we have healthy pious child.

So please pray for us all and those to come too.

Ma’as-salaam – With Peace

Jazakallah khair (may Allah give the best recompense)to Mr and Mrs T for sharing this post of joy with us. May Allah make your child the coolness of your eyes.

  12. Yaz its soooo sweet init! Dats y I told u 2 read it! Yeh Mr T do let us know wen Tiny T arrives in dis world!

    I fink der shud b more gud stories like dis 1 on dis blog, instead of all da boring stuff about terrorism etc. I like to know about peoples personal lives, init Yaz!

  13. I don’t think the stuff about terrorism etc is boring. Infact it’s informing people of the beauty of our deen (religion). It’s showing people that don’t know nothing about Islam other than what they see on the news and read in the papers – that Islam is a religion and a way of life of peace!!

    The standard joey (i.e. you and me) know this but alot of people don’t.

    Plus even though I know all this already I still love reading it.
    So please do carry on.

  14. Ok the stuff about terrorism its not dat boring but its sumfin dat I already know n hear bout it all da time. So therefore I dont like reading the same stuff!

    I love this blog man… didn’t think there was anything on the internet like this for Dewsbury until just a while ago… I think it has the potential to become well established…. InshaAllah!!!!!
