part 110

Aunty saabiras point of view:

Just incase you’re wondering who I am….I’m goolams mummy….

Firstly…I’d like to introduce you to the apple of my eye..that is my son goolam…

You see…I was married very young and when I fell pregnant with goolam, we so much wanted the name mohammed….but then…closer to me giving birth, I lost my father due to a sudden heart attack…..my fathers name was goolam hoosen…..and so when I gave birth there was no 2 ways about it…my father was an amazing man…and so my husband suggested we name our little angel after my wonderful father with the hope that he’ll have the qualities that my father did…

To our surprise, goolam did turn out to be a lot like his grandfather…he was such a soft hearted loving boy…always helpful and always had good words to say about everyone….he was very reserved though and we never had any problems of him making a mock with other young girls….

But that’s where the problem lied…little did we know that my goolam had taken another route…until oneday someone approached us telling us of what they’d seen and heard….at first I wouldn’t believe it…I couldn’t…this was my son they were talking about..he would never do something like that…

For over a year I refused to speak to my cousin who brought this devastating news to me…I thought how could my own family accuse their blood of something so horrid…I was beyond hurt….I covered up for him as much as I could..no parent wants to hear that their child is involved in such a vice…

However one day goolam sat us down and explained to us that it all was infact true….I couldn’t take it…I was totally taken aback…I cried for days on end and landed up in hospital with extremely high blood pressure…

As time went by,goolam seen how much this had affected me…however I stood by him and made even more dua for my childs hidayat(guidance)….I even started waking up for tahajjud salaah(late night prayer) and haven’t missed a single tahajjud since then….I made a promise to Allah that if ever he gave goolam hidayah, I would leave the materialistic things of this world and turn completely to him…

They say the dua made at the time of tahajjud is guaranteed acceptance..there is nothing between Allah and his bandah(slave)…Allah says “ask and I will grant you all that you desire”…

And alhamdulillah…..well not immediately ofcourse but after some time, goolam started noticing how this was affecting me so badly….he came to us crying oneday that he wants to stop..he wants to change..he wants to be a better muslim….

As a mother, seeing your adult son crying was just heart breaking…I hugged my son and reassured him that Allah would never let him go…Allah still loves him and Allah only can help him…and the fact that he realises what he’s doing is so wrong, Allah will definitely pull him through all this…

Goolam started classes with a well known aalim in our community…this great scholar of deen..I owe everything to him for standing by my son and being a means of pulling him back onto the correct path…even if goolam broke down at 2 on the morning..this dedicated aalim was there to listen and advise…

Looking at my son now, 2 years later?I feel so proud of this great step he’s taken…and I owe it to Allah as I’ve vowed….this test that Allah had put goolam through has not only brought my son back onto the ‘straight’ path..but has also drawn the entire family closer to Allah…goolamis our inspiration…and we all look up to him for moving a mountain that people believe is impossible to…

He has finally taken the courage to see a girl…and alhamdulillah what a lovely girl she is mashallah…salma is a homely and caring girl…inshallah they will be very happy together…

Goolam wanted the wedding as soon as possible because he felt that waiting would just cause shaytaan to put all kinds of evil thoughts in his mind..we wanted to give them a big yet simple walima…and we invited as many poor people as we could…

Its just a week before the nikaah now…and its thursday night..we had just 2 more homes to go to for inviting..these people were really poor and had no phones to contact them so we went personally…

On our way back…we were driving on one of the quieter roads when goolam couldn’t drive anymore as there were large rocks in the middle of the road…ad we slowed down..an egg was thrown onto the windscreen making it abit difficult to see the road ahead….

We were stuck…and scared..I just started reading ayatul kursi out loud….when someone opened my door and threw myself and my husband out….they tried throwing goolam out of the car but he tried to fight them….one guy pulled out a gun and told goolam to get out of the car….

He was scared..I could see…and the next second they threw him in the backseat and drove in the opposite direction…..

We were left stranded in the middle of nowhere and my goolam…oh Allah…they took my goolam…..ya Allah….please protect my child……..

    Wow !!!! Lovely to get this viewpoint – ‎​​ما شاء الله !!!!!
    We r soo quick to judge ppl widout knowing the whole story – lessons , lessons !!!!!
    Its very hard for parents to see there kids goin thru all this – especially the mother.
    If اللَّهُ wants to give hidayat den no1 can interfere ….
    We must make دعاء that اللَّهُ must always keep us steadfast on our deen wid Ikhlaas ( sincerity ) ‎​​​آمين
    Hmmmm ……. Ghulaaarm Bhaaai !!!! OMG ….. Hope they don’t do anything to him !!!!!!!!

    جَزَاكَ اللهُ خَيْرًا 
 ┉┈┈┈♡♡ -̶̯͡┈̥⌣̊°˚

    Always keeping us entertained and teaching us @ the same time !!!!! There’s nvr a dull n boring moment …. ‎​سُبْحَانَ اللَّه

    It’s so amazing how goolam turned his life around. May Allah give us all hidayat. Ameen. Oh gosh, hope goolam will be okay. I don’t know if his mother will handle it if something happened to him.
