Few days ago when we just came back from out and about my 4 years and 10 months old daughter said to me (out of the blue):
"Wow mama, you're doing everything!"
I asked: "What do you mean Nusaybah?"
Well, you're a doctor (I don't know why she highlighted this role first- perhaps it's because I just put a bandage on her finger- and you're a driver, you're a cleaner, you're a cook, you're a book reader, you are everything.
Me:" Awww that's very sweet of you Nusaybah, jazakillah khair for those kind words"
N:"no wonder you're tired all the time, because you're doing everything!"
Me:" errmmmm yes maybe that's why"
Children always speak the truth, in fact,
when I read her bedtime story I often fall asleep before it's even finished and then I mumbled in Indonesian language. She would then laugh.
The strange things: she seems enjoying that kind of situation so she usually stretch her bed time till late by asking me to do my Isha prayer, x y z and then ask me: are you really tired mama? If I say "yes" then she asks me to tell her story.
If a child recognise the massive role of a mother, sometimes I wonder how come capitalist system doesn't? Once again it is an evident for me how Islam for the fitrah of human being.
