This is not a pretty picture.
It doesn't go with my feed.
But it's my reality and my why.
Last year, around this time, I was investing in products to get my son familiar with our deen.
This is when I realized I can make something that will get Bubs excited about prayer time. That's when I made a special hat just for him that he could wear when it's time to pray.
At the time, he was about to turn 2. So most days he'd throw it on the floor. But on the days he wore it, he melted my heart and made me feel so proud.
It didn't matter that he would just run around in circles and play silly games. It didn't matter that he would pull and tug at my scarf and try to climb my back when I went into Sajda (prostrated). Or that he talked gibberish or stood in front of me and stared in silence.
It mattered that he was wearing his prayer hat and standing on or around the prayer mat observing and absorbing what he saw. These were the seeds of Iman being planted.
A year has passed and now sometimes when he feels like praying next to us, he asks eagerly for his topi. He also tries to imitate our actions and words as we pray. These are not just actions and words. This is his Iman blooming, slowly but surely. This is the beginning of his spiritual journey.
I want my fellow Muslim moms to be able to pave the path for their own little ones. Even if it is by doing a simple action like putting a hat on their head.
