In my small family, alhamdulillah I am blessed with two supportive parents who are always the ones to help me with everything such as Islamic studies, Islamic knowledge and Quran.
Over the past few months, I have started to do hifz. I have always dreamed of memorising Quran and becoming a hafiza. But only for two reasons, they are because of my parents who have inspired me to read quran and my older brother who has also started hifz and memorised 3 juz. My family is MashaAllah fantastic in that way.
My brother has also started leading salah for us with such beautiful recitation. It is my family who encourage me to read Quran and gain my Islamic knowledge. My dad has also started sanatain and he has learned so much! He always tells us new hadiths and stories. He reads Quran to me and my brother. It has improved and MashaAllah he is doing well.
My mother is always the one supporting us with Quran and Islamic studies. She is always the one to take time and listen to me read Quran, praising me and telling me not to worry. When I read to my mother, I know that even if I get it wrong, she is always there to help me fix my mistakes and tell me its ok.
Last year as you know, in Ramadan we were in the national lockdown due to covid-19. But corona didn’t stop us from reading as much as Quran as we could and reading salah together. My brother would sometimes lead tarawih and that really made Ramadan feel like Ramadan! Alhamdulillah.
I am very lucky to have such a blessed life! ALHAMDULILLAH!
