Things I said Alhumdulillah for in October 2015…

  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 Alhumdulillah during the past month. 

Things I said Alhumdulillah for in October:

  1. Surviving Flying with a toddler for the first time on a 7 hour journey to UK, and landing safe and sound!
  2. Being reunited my with my parents and baby brother.
  3. Being reunited with the entire extended family, most of whom I have not seen for 2 years!
  4. Witnessing a rainbow….I had forgotten just how mesmerising those were.
  5. A lovely 3 day break in London with Mr Z and Baby Z, where I got to swoon at everything inside Liberty London, the exquisite department store, along with seeing all the wonderful sights that London has to offer.
  6. A week of sightseeing in Scotland with the family, where all the historic buildings and cute little towns simply stole my heart and transported me to a mystical land.
  7. Long drives through the Lake District. I can’t begin to describe the beautiful sights that I came across, apart from saying SubhanAllah, SubhanAllah, SubhanAllah.
  8. Watching Baby Z give tremendous amount of love and joy to my parents and brother. He has been such a little star throughout the entire month, considering his daily routine has been changed every 2 days! This month has been full of priceless moments. It is what coming out here to UK was all about, and it has been achieved Alhumdulillah.
  9. Meeting all my friends, and carrying off our chatter from where we left off. Though we are all at such different stages in life, we are nonetheless Friends Forever.
  10. Having the most supportive husband on the planet! Going on holiday with a toddler isn’t the easiest of things, but Mr Z has been there throughout, offering his love, care and support. What would I ever do without you, my love?

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. What are you thankful for? Feel free to share your moments in the comments section below!

      Aww *Blush* JazakAllah that is very kind of you to say. I really applaud Single Parents who bring up their children on their own, I wouldn’t be able to handle motherhood alone at all!
