Perseverance : Inspirational Story as a Parent

Just before MCO, Tariq underwent his Ninja Grading.

And last week, Tariq finally received his Certificate of Ranking from his beloved Sensei Marc
Marcel Fabian for passing his Ninja Grading done end of February, Alhamdulillah!!
Congrats Sayang!!
Tariq started his training as Ninja around 5 years ago.
He went from No Belt, to White Belt, to Yellow Belt, to Orange Belt and just received his Blue Belt.
This is one of the main trainings I want Tariq to go thru, InshaAllah 
I believe all children must learn this too.
It is called perseverance
Everything in life needs perseverance before achieving excellence.
And I always reminded Tariq the Story on How to Eat an Elephant!
We eat it bit by bit. We never eat an elephant all at one time.
And this is what Tariq is continuously learning and understanding, InshaAllah.
To achieve something big, you must do it bit by bit, continuously, consistently.
And to achieve something, one of the principles is Perseverance.
Well done my Lion!!
Mama and Baba are so happy and proud of you!💗💗💗
Alhamdulillah MashaAllah TabarakAllah!!🥰🥰🥰💕💕💕🎉🎊

Tawakkul : Inspirational Story as a Parent

From this to this...
Yesterday Tariq participated in a Tug of War competition in school.
As the holder of Gold Medal in this event previous years, he expected to win.
But Allah planned it differently, MashaAllah.
Tariq's team lost.
And he didn't take it well.
I reminded him that all that matters in life is his effort.
And how he responds and reacts to things and circumstances that Allah plans for him. 
I reminded him that the result in everything that he does is in Allah's hand.
Always and forever.
Tariq just need to do your best, and accept and redha of Allah's decision on the results, sayang...
And don't worry about the results, because Allah knows best.
He is the Best Planner.
Trust Him.
It may not be easy to do especially when Tariq wants something so badly.
And Tariq put in your best effort. You did your best. 
Mama knows you did your best because Mama saw your effort.
But, trust in Allah's Plan, you must. 
So chin up, sayang.., I said to him while at the same time, thanking Allah for this wonderful opportunity to teach Tariq a critical lesson in life.
Alhamdulillah ya Rabb! 🥰🥰🥰💗💗💗


A happy, cheerful and hopeful Tariq in the morning.
Can see Tariq's defeated body posture... You did your best sayang... That is all that matters.


First Horseback Archery Assessment : Inspirational Story as a Parent

Last week on Malaysia Day, 16th September, Tariq had his very first Horseback Archery Assessment.
And he passed alhamdulillah!!! 🥰🥰
The assessment consist of 2 parts and was judged by no other than Coach Akmal Dahalan, Malaysia's very own Gold Medalist for Horseback Archery! 😍
First part was Tariq had to shoot on target 10 arrows in 40 seconds.
Speed shooting is critical as archers on speeding horses do not have much time to release their arrows thus speed is essential.
And Tariq did it in 38.60 seconds MashaAllah TabarakAllah Alhamdulillah!! 😍😍😍
It took Tariq three attempts.
On first attempt, Tariq's 7th arrow missed its target.
On the second attempt, Tariq's 8th arrow missed its target.
Tariq started to stressed out and had to calm himself down and took time to refocus by remembering what Bismillah - Allahul - Haq means to archers.
And on his third attempt, all his arrows hit its target under 40 secs, alhamdulillah!
All 10 arrows in 38.60 seconds MashaAllah Alhamdulillah!! 🥰🥰
For the second part of the assessment, Tariq had to show all 3 forms of Horseback Archery - front shooting, side shooting and back shooting.
And Tariq did it beautifully, MashaAllah TabarakAllah!
Thank you so much Coach Akmal and all Coaches at Ladang Alam Warisan Stable for training Tariq! 🥰🥰
Mama and Baba so proud of you, sayang alhamdulillah!!
It was so wonderful to see the sparkle in your eyes that reflects the great joy in your heart when you passed.
May your every arrow reaches its intended target.💗
And may Allah continue to bless you for being part of reviving our beloved Prophet's Prophetic sunnah.
Mama so nervous especially at his 7th and 10th arrows when Tariq seems to have difficulty locking his arrow to his bow
Beautiful back shooting form MashaAllah

Tariq with his beloved Coach Akmal and Abu Bakr, his comrade

You did it!!! 38.60sec! Alhamdulillah

On target alhamdulillah 😍🎯
Tariq doing his form beautifully alhamdulillah! 🥰🥰

It's The Little Things : Inspirational Story as a Parent

Mama..., I have something for youuu.., said Tariq smiling happily while holding a flower in between his two tiny fingers.

MashaAllah TabarakAllah!! 🌹🌺🌻🌸🌼

Oh how my heart glows with joy and happiness, alhamdulillah! 🥰🥰

Every now and then, Tariq will bring me flowers.

Not the ones purchased from the florist. Nope.

These flowers came from the path or walkway Tariq passed by before reaching me.

And I am always the happiest every time he bring me those tiny little flowers.


Because I know that Tariq is starting to learn and understand the value and pleasure of 'little things' and 'little gestures' in life.

And because I want Tariq to understand that in everything, it is the thought and kind & loving gestures that counts the most.

Because not everything must be expressed with bling2 and dollars and cents.

Because for him to pluck those flowers for me, means he was thinking of me.

And knowing that I was on his mind, is enough to make me happy.

And for him to pluck that flower for me, it means he understood how to show his love in the simplest but in deep meaningful way.

MashaAllah TabarakAllah, sayang.

May you keep finding joy in little things & little gestures in life.

May Allah keep your heart pure and full of love.

May you keep doing the little things and little gestures and actions that bring bountiful joy to others.

Aamiin ya Rabb! ❤️

This is for you, Mama...

Mama, Tariq took this for you..

Here is a beautiful dandelion for you, Mama..

When I saw this flower, Tariq took it for you, Mama..


Becoming the Best Person : Inspirational Story as a Parent

This morning while we were driving to school, Tariq finished his latest book, MashaAllah TabarakAllah!🤩

The book title is ‘The Daughters of Prophet Muhammad’.❤️

After sharing some of the amazing stories from the book and how those Prophet’s Daughters inspire him, Tariq said to me..,

..... Mama, Tariq thinks Tariq wants to make duaa to Allah.....

.... What duaa sayang?...., I got curious

..... Tariq wants to duaa that Allah give Tariq a wife who has the combination of Prophet’s wife Khadijah, Prophet’s daughters Fatima, Ruqayyah and Zainab..’

....Ey MashaAllah...! Mama will pray for you too, sayang..’, Aamiin.., I replied with full amazement of what Tariq said

.... But you know something sayang..., I continued

.... If Tariq wants a wife who has the combination of Khadijah, Fatimah, Ruqayyah and Zainab...

.... Then Tariq must be a man who has the combination of Prophet Muhammad, Saidina Ali, Saidina Othman and Abu al’Aas..., I said

What??!!, shrieked Tariq


Keluar his peluh sejuk!

Yes my darling, Tariq. How can you want the best but you are not ready to be the best person for your wife?


I could see Tariq’s head spinning trying to figure out what I said.


Okay okay Mama... cancel cancel... let me think again about my duaa, said Tariq giggling away

Think sayang think!

More often than not, we always ask Allah for what we feel is best for us, without realizing that we must also change and strive to be ready for what we asked Allah for...

MashaAllah TabarakAllah...

Thank you Allah for such an interesting conversation with my Tariq so early in the morning🥰🥰🥰
