Bismillah Ar Rahman Ar Raheem. All Praise be to Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala. On Saturday, I went to Six Flags Great America in Chicago with my family. I was so excited to go! Alhamdulillah! When I went there, I saw those “scary looking” giant rides. It was a beautiful weather SubhanAllah! I had a great time there.
Of all the rides, there was this one ride that was colorful and had balloons on it. I can’t remember its name. I took my little sister with me to go on that ride. I am not really a ride person. I get scared. My little sister was a little scared as well. She is only six years old. Since I am older than her, I had to get some courage and I looked at her. I smiled and told her, it will be fine. When we went inside the ride, I told her, “You know everything will be ok. You don’t have to be scared. I am right here next to you. Let’s make du’a to Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala. Once we make du’a, put your trust in Allah. Allah will take care of you.” I looked at her, she raised her little hands close to her face and made du’a for both of us.
Then she said, “I made du’a, Allah will protect us”. She then said, “If I close my eyes, you can hold me tight and if you close your eyes, I will hold you tight.”
Then the ride started. It went up and down the air. We both laughed and smiled. None of us were scared Alhamdulillah. My little sister learned that once she makes du’a, Allah is there with her.
She went on that same ride four times and our little brothers and sisters joined us as well. It was great.
I think I made du’a on every ride I was on. Alhamdulillah it was fun.
