Things I said Alhumdulillah for in October 2019…

Alhumdulillah means “All Praise is due to God” and are the words uttered by a Muslim when he/she is expressing gratitude to Allah. I find myself saying this numerous times a day and this post is a collection of moments when I have said Alhumdulilah during the past month.

Things I said Alhumdulillah for in October:

  1. Alhumdulillah for being able to see un-aided! Yes, my LASIK surgery was a success and I am so happy that I went through with it. To know all about my Laser eye surgery experience, and answers to any FAQs, refer to see this detailed blog post here.
  2. Being surrounded by books at the Big Bad Wolf sale. I really hope my love of books translates to both my boys!
  3. Attending Master Z’s first Parent Teacher Meeting at his new school, and hearing how well he is doing. Super Proud Mummy moment!
  4. Having a month with so many school holidays, so getting a little bit of a lie in, more than usual and getting to spend more time with Master Z.
  5. Hearing Little Z learn new words every day and laughing till our bellies hurt when hearing some of them…
  6. Baking pretzels from scratch for the first time, and actually succeeding! Trust me, I’m more shocked about this than you are…
  7. Feeling reconnected to my faith as I read “A Temporary Gift” by Asmaa Hussein. I am yet to finish it, but it has already been a source of so much inspiration for me.
  8. Being nominated for the “Best Mum Advisor” category by Qidz UAE. I am truly humbled and feeling the love from all those that supported me with their votes. Thank you.
  9. Listening to Master Z as he learns to read. What a beautiful milestone to reach, as frustrating it sometimes because it is a very slow process as he gets to grips with it.
  10. Feeling the beginnings of the winter breeze in the early mornings. Aaaah, finally!
  11. Applying henna on my nails, after what feels like AGES!

These are just a few of the many times I uttered the words Alhumdulillah this month. Check out what I was thankful for last month here. Also, here’s a list of what I was thankful for in October last year! What are you thankful for? Feel free to share your moments in the comments section below.
