What's in a name..Tag

Exclusively for Simah who tagged me... :-)

One of the important thing when we are expecting a baby is of coz a 'name'..whether we want to name her after her parents, grandma..favourite aunty or any celebrity..and as Muslim we will find one that have an Islamic value.

We were excited back then..I was given total freedom to choosed the name, and Simah was one who I refered and even asked a list or Turkish name..

We don't know the I ended up looking for boys name..I wish that if Allah gave me a boy, his name will start with Mohamed..Mohamed Hadif...similar to his abah's name..and I like the meaning as well - Hadif - one with a goal

Some said that how big or how our tummy looks like could give an indication of the most people said maybe this is a boy..but some said its a girl is on the way

Her name was selected at a very last minute...I want a name that represent both of us with a soft touch and a name that sounds Arabic and a little bit of Hindi ..'Sufiya Humaira'..SH is a combination of our name, Sufiya is something related to Sufism, I want her to have a strong grip on religious..besides it sounds quite soft, and for Humaira..I always like a name with a letter R, so that we pronounce it sounds nice, Humaira means white and red..or 'putih dan merah bak delima' as our Phophet (saw) called his wife Aishah

In Mission Kashmir the character's name is Sufiya played by Pretty Zinta..what a coincidence..I like her and that movie about terrorist..she's pretty :-) and cute

One morning I did a test, I rubbed my tummy and called 'Mohamed Hadif..'..long silent, no respond...'Sufiya Humaira...'..ooh she started kicking and moving as if she was saying hello, from that moment I believed that I was going to have a baby girl, but still kept it to myself, can't be too excited..
Alhamdulillah when she was born, that name fits her well..her Bhod Babu (big uncle)in Calcutta told her Dada (Sufiya's grandpa) that her face is pinkish ..or as what they said 'rose colour' match her name.
Everyone's name has been given by Allah long before we were born

A nice name Suffiya Humaira - Soft sweet pink is. I'll set my prayers so that she would grow up as beautiful as her name.

A gift for mother and child.

Ceritera Lebah

Menonong terbang sang lebah sedih,
mencari setitik madu yang putih,
buat penghilang dahaga yang pedih,
biar tenaga yang hilang pulih,
namun mengapa sesudah musim jauh bersilih,
yang di pilih menawar pilih,
membuat dahaga semakin pedih,
membuat jiwa makin meratih.
Menonong terbang sang lebah bingung,
mata merah telinga berdegung,
sundutnya makin memanggil di balik lembayung,
panglimanya makin kuat berdegung,
letihnya makin menganggung,
menambah-manambah kepada dirinya bingung.
Di tengah hari berehat sang lebah di atas batu,
menahan letih dengan hati yang sayu,
menahan getar takut dan pilu,
menjadi tunggal di balik seribu.
Di balik sejuk tatkala singgah di atas batu,
menjelma di mata bayangan Ratu,
menyanyikan syair penuh mendayu,
menyuluh benak yang kurangnya ilmu,
agar tegar di balik sayu.
Syurga sang lebah kata Sang Ratu,
bukan pada mawar yang merah,
bukan pada madu yang mencurah-curah,
tapi pada hapaknya basahan kaabah,
yang dibeli dengan jiwa yang tabah,
dan dibalut dengan dedaun usrah.
