BismilLaa HirRahmaa NirRahiim
Today, 7 years ago we became a proud parents of a beautiful little girl, the first born girl in our family and the second child after Muhammad Abdurrahman. My dear wife gave her the beautiful name of Iman 'Aaliyah, from Arabic translated as "The Highest Most Exalted Faith".
My late mother was so proud to have a granddaughter, for it was no secret that she needed more girls in the family (my youngest sister is her only daughter after three sons!).
Alhamdulillah, Iman has grown up well and healthy, and Alhamdulillah is also doing well academically. Iman loved challenges and will try her best to overcome whatever comes her way, be it puzzles, games or homework. That's why I was not the least surprised when she actually completed a full month of fasting in the recent holy month of Ramadhan.
Babah and Mama is so proud and happy for you, and on this auspicious day, we wish you a very happy birthday, we pray for Allah's continuous blessing upon you every day and every moment, and may you grow up to the beautiful name that we have proudly given you. Always remember that we love you so much, Sayang.
Babah, Mama, Abang Muhammad and Adik Aaeeshah.
This picture was taken few hours after you were born.
Grandma Babu loved your lips :-)
This picture was taken when you just turned 1.
You had Babah's cheeky smile (and chubbiness), and Mama's beautiful eyes.
This was taken when you were two. You've got that fashion sense,
got it from none other than Kaka Ateul.
Taken during your third birthday... no secret that you love pink...
... and also wanted to be princess. This was on your 4th birthday
This was taken when you were just 5. Short hair?
I still remember you begged Mama to have it cut at the saloon ;-)
Remember this? We celebrated your birthday on the first day of Hari Raya 2009....
And this last picture was taken just last week.
Happy birthday Sayang. We love you so much.
