The New World - A story of anticipation . . and love.
Behind the doors, lives were at stake. The outcome would change his life forever. He glanced at the clock.
Seconds ticking away seemed like hours. He stood up and paced.
Two doors cracked opened. He stood and stopped breathing for a second. No one came out. The two doors closed again.
What? He shook his head in disbelief. Nervous.
He cracked his fingers. Shook his legs. The doors opened. A masked man in blue came to him. “Congratulations, it’s a boy!”
His face beamed. A father at last…
O you who believe! Let not your properties or your children divert you from the remembrance of Allah. And whosoever does that, then they are the losers.
( سورة المنافقون , Surah Al-Munafiqoon, Chapter #63, Verse #9)
Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “Every child is born with a true faith of Islam (i.e. to worship none but Allah Alone) and his parents convert him to Judaism or Christianity or Magianism, as an animal delivers a perfect baby animal. Do you find it mutilated?” (Sahih Bukhari Book #23, Hadith #467)
