This is my second mother. Even though she isn’t the one that gave birth to me, You know that she has been with me since day 1. For as long as I can remember, she has been there alongside my own mother, supporting me, caring for me, protecting me, loving me unconditionally – You know how generous her heart is. In fact, I can’t imagine a life without her there as a guiding light and a role model every step of the way! Her love, her smile, her warm hug, even her presence is enough to comfort me. I never have to ask for anything from her – she will always give, give, give and give! And together with all the love she has given to me over the years, every single bit added up, You know I would never be able to repay all of her endless gifts!
Before this holy month of Ramadhan comes to an end, allow me to ask another thing from You, this time as a gift for her. All my life, You know that I have had her watching over me and caring for me as a second mother, but I’m afraid that I won’t always be able to do the same for her. So I ask that You send two of Your best angels to watch over her, to guard her, and to care for her, 100 times as much as she has done for me! Please don’t let her see a day without happiness, so she can be happy like how she always keeps me happy. And if there is anything that crosses her mind which You think is best for her, please grant her wishes as fast as lightning! I pray that You reserve her the most beautiful palace in Jannatul Firdaus, cos that is what it felt like when I was spending time with her – heavenly! I pray that when we leave this world, we will be reunited together again, cos I don’t know what I would do without her! And lastly, I ask for You to let her know just how much I love her, cos it would be impossible to tell it to her enough!
