craving: spending the weekend with my family and friends.... <3
First of all I wanna give a very, very, very BIG Salam Alykom to my little sister and my little brother. Why might y'all ask? Well, since I've been back from UAE they've asked a lot questions about my religion. Yesterday, I picked them up from school, along with my daughter, and my little brother just started asking a lot of questions, more than usual. I answered and he was so fascinated at some of the answers. I showed him and my little sister some youtube videos on Islam and he said," I want to become Muslim and I do believe." My little sister said the same. She said, I believe that there is one God and Jesus is not the son of God, nor God. They said, they believe Muhammad is the last prophet to all mankind. My dad is starting to ask, too. So, yes, they both took their testimony of faith last night. The Shahada.. :) :) :) I'm on cloud 9... Wouldn't you be?
These are the words my siblings said.
La ilaha il Allah, Muhammad-ur-Rasool-Allah
(None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah)
I just remembered, when my little brother was little, we used to take him with us to the Masjid (mosque) and he used to say, Kristie, I wanna be called, Muhammad. :) :) :) I'm giggling about it now. What a great name. ;) So, his wish came true. Nine years later and he'll be 15yrs old in a couple of months. :)
So, welcome to Islam, little sister and bro... All your past sins have been forgotten.. Alhamdulilah (Thank you God)
In other news, the weekend has started and it's a start to a great weekend. My friends and I will get together tonight, I'm thinking of cooking for them. :) Hoping my little sister, Georgette comes in from another state. I wanna have a small celebration for my my little sis and bro, and would be nice if she could be here , too. :) Since we don't mix, (men and women) my little brother will hang out with some of my friends son's who are also Muslim. The girls will all hang out here at my home. :)
Hmmm, I guess that's it for today. I pray all y'all have a GREAT weekend. :)
I ask Allah to make this journey easy for my siblings and to give them what's best in this life and the hear after ameen
final whisper: If you believe there is ONE God and that prophet Muhammad is the final and last prophet, don't delay..
