part 30:

Dada:”actually it makes more sense for dadi and I to move there..we are only 2 of us…you people are a family..this house is more spacious for a family…it becomes abit lonely for just the 2 of us….”

 

Me:”this is a big decision dada…I say let us think about it…make mashwara with eachother and then we can take it from there…”

 

Dada:”ofcourse my child…take your time to decide…nabi(S.A.W) always encouraged mashwarah(consulting)…there is no regrets with consulting one another..”

 

Ismail:”jazakallah so much for all this..you people really have hearts of gold..that’s why Allahs given you so much of barakah in your lives and wealth..”

 

Dada:”son! You must remember..all of this didn’t come over night and wasn’t just handed over to us…it took many many years of very hard work…we were not always this blessed….dadi and I, along with our children suffered immensely in the beginning days, but we worked as hard as possible and alhamdulillah..today with Allahs great blessings, we are retired and enjoying the fruits of our efforts”

 

Ismail:”jee that’s true….inshalah we too will work hard and get there some day…anyway, we should get going..we’ve got so much to do and I still have to go around giving out my CV..we can’t afford to live on just love and fresh air(light laugh)”

 

Dada:”that’s another thing….I have a suggestion in mind…you know we’ve got that filling station on main street?…that engen garage with a quick shop?”

 

Ismail:”jee jee, I know that garage…I didn’t know it was dadas?”

 

Dada:”we bought it over a year ago and the same guy was managing it for us uptil now, but now he and the family want to relocate to the netherlands or somewhere..so we were busy looking for someone actually to take over management..there’s great potential there….but that’s if you’re interested.. I’m not forcing you hey..I know coming out of the stationary shop ths is abit different…”

 

Ismail:”this sounds quite interesting”

 

Me:”tell us more about it dada(absolutely excited)”

 

Dada:”well there isn’t much to it..its in quite an established area and the shop needs abit of renovation here and there and some changes would be good…you don’t have to be there all the time…we’ve got petrol attendants and cashiers aswel…you just need to go in daily to supervise..check on things..manage stock etc….”

 

Ismail:”and what’s the pay like?if you don’t mind me asking..maaf!”

 

Dada:”well I’ll pay you 15 grand monthly negotiable aswel as 5% of the months takings will go towards you taking over the business..so you’ll be managing, getting paid aswel as buying it out..its just an offer..like I said..we don’t have long to live…and I want everything off our heads before we meet our creator”

 

Me:”R15 000 dada?wHAT???!!”( I was shocked)

 

Ismail couldn’t stop smiling…

 

Dada:”look!that’s my offer..I suggest you go…sleep on all of this….make istikhaara and then whenever you ready, decide!….for now though…I’m not going to sell the complex as yet and neither am I going to look for anyone else for the garage..I’m going to wait till you kids come back to me..is that ok?”
