Slamaat on your 6th birthday Mika’il

Six years. You would have been six years.

I thought time would have healed me abit and by now I’d be abit more stable when your birthday comes… I guess I was wrong. I think time has taught me to keep myself distracted, but on days like this, it’s impossible.

I try to celebrate you, in fact, I celebrate you daily. You have pushed me to be the woman with characteristics of the mother I would have wanted to be to you. Each time I’m In a situation, I think “what example would I be leaving if Mika’il were here”.

Precious child, you have made such an impact in my life. I really thank Allah that he chose me to carry you.

Flashbacks of the day that I lost you came flooding in from 01:05am when my sleep broke this morning.

As much as I trust Allah had different plans for you, I still question if you’d be here if only I had made different decisions or if only I stayed off my feet and rested as I should have.

But anyway, you would have been six today. Lol no guessing that I would have been way more excited than you. You would have also started big school. Gawsh, I don’t think they make phones big enough to house all the photos I’d take of you daily. I often wonder how it would have been; me coming home to help you with homework, teach you. You going to madressa and learning more about your religion. I often wonder what type of questions you’d be asking me.

I often wonder… I do that alot actually.

So on your special day. Know that mum and a whole lot of aunts and uncles, cousins, Junaid and Ma & PA are thinking of you. I know you’re in a much better place my son.

The love I have for you will never die. Till we meet again sweet child.

Slamaat on your sixth heavenly birthday.

Love and light always,

“The quality of life is based on the authencity of your connections”

~ TayBreezy


I had another thought this morning ya’all, feeling like Dr Phil up in here 🙌🏼😊🤣. ( I loved Dr Phil BTW)

On the reals though, I honestly do not believe in coincidence. I believe that everything that happens in your life is part of a plan, a plan that’s meant to grow you as a person and to build your character. 

I believe that Life is full circle and that Everything we go through, every person that we meet, is a test and a lesson. How we pass those tests and learn those lessons determine how we spend the days to come. 

Treat everybody you encounter with respect. It really doesn’t cost you anything to just be nice because you really don’t know when you might need that very same “irrelevant” person. God and Murphy have a way sometimes!

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying be nice JUST to or in hope of getting something in return, but I am saying generally, what you put in, is what you get out. 

So here’s a thought:

If we had to receive whatever we gave…. wouldn’t we make sure that we give off our best at all times? Well then touche’.

So no, we not saying be fake, if you really don’t like somebody and you’re meant to encounter them, perhaps it’s a reminder of how not to be. Just keep your distance, respectfully , and then keep moving forward.

So the next time you get a friendly smile from a stranger, return it. The next time some random person on social media needs help, offer to help if you’re able. The next time you see a wet floor at work, go around it (we see all of you who have no regard for the cleaning staff). The next time you see an elderly person standing and you’re seated, offer your seat, the next time you go to a super market, remember, the cashier did nothing to you and neither is she obliged to smile at ya, stop feeling entitled. And the next time you witness something wrong or an injustice, speak up and stand for what’s right. This is what being authentic is all about.


We need to remind ourselves of ourselves before we quick to pass judgements on to the next, because the quality of our life is based on how authentic we are with our connections. 

The world needs your sparkle. 

Some say chivalry isn’t dead and I believe them.
