I waited so long to meet you

mood: sentimental
craving: to hold you and kiss you forever

Ar Rahman - The Most Gracious
To my beloved son, 

The most beautiful thing about having you in my life now is: I get to reminisce about how you always settled down when you were snugly warm inside of me when I would play this surah (verse) in the Quran for you. I always pictured your eyes opening wide, a small smirk and you were just continent when you heard this surah. Many days and nights I played it and longed to meet you and hold you close to me in my arms. Today was something special. I played this verse in our glorious Quran and I reached my arms out to you and you jumped in my arms without hesitation and laid your head on my chest. As I looked down, you closed your eyes, as if you knew just what you were listening to. It eased you and put a smile in your heart. Just holding you in my arms while listening this recitation, brought back memories that I will always remember. Isn't our mind a wonderful blessing from our Lord? I can't thank God enough for the many blessings He has given me.

final whisper: It's not only children who grow. Parents do, too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can't tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it myself.

MAshallah! very beautiful post. May ALLAh give ur son and Yourself life that is filled with easiness and happiness and health.

You are so true about reaching out for something urself rather than telling them. Parents are teaching as well as learning from our kids and vice versa.

assalamu alaikum sister.
Immediately after listening (watching the video) coincidentally I clicked another you tube channel and found another beautiful verse meant for all of us, especially teachings for the children, how to behave with their parents and some other.

I think the same qari is reciting this verse also.

may allah help you unite your husband again for a long lasting love and happiness..
insha allah and aameen.
jazakallah khair.
