Arham Turns Four!

My [not so little] baby is four!  It seems like just yesterday when … where, oh where, has the time gone? Arham beta, you are growing up to be such an amazing boy mashAllah and I pray you always thrive in whatever you set your mind to. You are inquisitive, curious and observant… and I love that about …

Arham Turns Three

Happy THIRD Birthday to my precious Arham. It’s certainly been a fun month-long celebration of your birthday. From the moment I found out about you, I have identified myself first and foremost as your Mama Arham beta. You are my pride and joy. My happiness. My everything.

Good Reason

God puts people in your life for a reason. A couple of months back, a co-worker said this to me regarding the woman whose job I took over. We had just found out she wasn’t returning to work after her maternity leave. It has stuck with me since. Allah SWT provides for you in different …

Arham Turns Two

Happy SECOND birthday to, my pride and joy, my dearest Arham beta, SubhanAllah I can’t put into words what these past two years have been for me. You are my world. That’s the only way to even attempt to put into words the impossible way to describe you. You bring me happiness that I can’t …

Imtiaz Chachoo

Too often we forget how limited our time in this world is and what truly matters. We chase materialistic things, not realizing it's going to be meaningless after our short stay here.

Mother’s Day

The Staff at SPUH

There is absolutely no worse feeling than your baby being unwell and you can’t take away their pain. For the past seven days we have either been at the pediatrician, at the hospital, or both. These past seven days have been exhausting, physically and emotionally.  When Arham woke up ill Friday, and wouldn’t improve as the …

Some Day

Earlier this month, one morning, Arham woke up quite content. He got up, sat up in his crib and started playing. I checked on him a few times, he glanced at me before continuing to play. I should have been ecstatic, right? So why did I feel sad instead? It got me thinking… Some day …

Dual Role

Both my paternal and maternal grandmothers, unfortunately, passed away before I was born. So, what I know of them is only through stories and pictures. 33 years ago today, my maternal grandmother passed away. Two days ago, it was my Papa’s birthday. His first birthday since his demise last March. If you know anything about …
