I like holding their hands. I don’t know why I do that but I find it different from mine. It reminds me how much I have grown up myself.
Two weeks ago, I was at work helping a couple. They had a newborn baby. The baby was sleeping. He was so cute mashaAllah. Those little eyes and tiny soft hands; He was wearing a blue hat and was covered in a blue blanket.
In a few minutes, I heard a noise. I thought maybe it was the mother’s cell phone or something. Then the father said to his wife to check the alarm. I wasn’t sure what was going on. I didn’t even notice much. So I asked the mother, “what is this alarm?” She said that they attached a machine to the baby to keep track of his breathing. I felt so sad after hearing that.
I could tell how much his parents have been hurt because of their newborn baby. I told the mother, I hope the baby gets well. His mother said that she hopes that too. SubhanAllah I couldn’t say much at that and I know there are parents who are going through much worse situations. I have met one mom before and she lost two of her babies before they were born. However she was being patient.
May Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala ease their pain Ameen.
We are all blessed in so many ways Alhamdulillah. The little boy could not even breathe properly. We breathe well every day of our lives Alhamdulillah. One short breath of a few seconds seems unbearable to us.
Alhamdulillah for everything.
