I saw the letter Nusaybah wrote for her best friend at school.
Her name is Aleena. I can sense the love she's having towards her. One day she told me that teacher asked her to present her journal and explain what she has written during reception year.
Aleena was the only friend who gave her encouragement by giving two thumbs up and wide smile while she stood in front of everyone.
After she narrated that story, she broke down to tears. She told me that it was a happy tears for she's having such a wonderful friends.
I cried and touched with her reaction. At the end we hugged each other tightly And cried together!
I can imagine how special for Nusaybah to have a friend who always see goodness in her.
Aleena was one of them or perhaps the only one in her classroom.
O Allah ﷻ protects our children from any bad influence and make them strong in the Deen and see the best from others around them.
اللهمّ امين يا ربّ العالمين

Knowledge is light and the light of Allah ﷻ is not bestowed upon a sinner.
Yes everyone will commit sins in one thing or the other because that's the made up of human being but the sinner it's referring here is the one who knows that s/he is committing sins and proud of it, spreads it, don't ask forgiveness of Allah ﷻ from it and continues doing it after reminder from those around her/him.
Indeed the one who wants and has been trying to understand the Deen are the fortunate one!
Mu’awiya reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said,
“If Allah intends goodness for someone, He gives him understanding of the religion.”

As I was vacuuming the floor, Nusaybah was enjoying to look at the map and she's trying to impress me by showing me how she knew where Indonesia and Ethiopia is and then she said:
"Mama.. I know what's the largest country in the world!"
I said:" what is it?"
Nusaybah:" it's Russia!"
"Well done, Sayang" I said
Then she asked again:" how many people is in Russia, Mama?"
"Oh... I am not sure Nusaybah.. It must be millions"
Nusaybah:"I know who knows! It's only Allah ﷻ and GOOGLE Know how many people in Russia is! Isn't it mama?"
I laughed and laughed and laughed and said:
"Yes! You're Absolutely right! But Google is only search engine made by human being"
Nusaybah: "...and human being doesn't know everything....only Allah ﷻ knows everything!"
Me:"exactly, so Google wouldn't know everything but perhaps it knows more than Mama"
And then ....She is content
الحمد لله رب العالمين
*power struggle in gaining leadership from your children but what can you do if you're up against GOOGLE?!
Once upon a time..
as any mothers know, often it is very difficult to make the kids walk quickly home. They dragged themselves and one of my trick to make them walk faster is by telling them to compete (with one another) running from the main road into the house (dead end road)
I have to pretend to participate and let them win for the sake of it and as usual that day I came last and Nusaybah is the first and Rumaysa second.
Nusaybah then commented:
"Mama, I know why you always came last.."
"Why?" I asked
"It's because I am the skinniest amongst you and Adek, so I'm very light, Rumaysa is lighter then you and you are the heaviest and the widest, I mean you have the largest size so it's too heavy for you to run!"
Again she made me laugh and I come to understand the saying: kids always tell the truth! (Unless they have been corrupted lol)
"Aaah... Actually that makes sense Nusaybah"
That's all I can say to her!
