‘Bismillahir rahmaanir raheem’
(In the name of Allah, the Most kind, The Most Merciful)

Me:”so now dada we have no idea what to do…..”

Dada was silent and expressionless after I sat over an hour trying to explain to him about the entire situation that we’re faced with…I couldn’t tell what he was thinking……all he did was brush his big, fat, white beard with his fingers…..

After much contemplation he finally started talking….
Dada:”firstly beti……both you and ismail, read 2 rakaats of salaatul haajaat…at the end of which you ask Allah for His guidance and help…..continue reciting the istikhaarah dua…”Allaahumma khirli wakhtarli”…..but no doubt, the best thing to do is to join ties with his newfound family……life is short….and knowing that his life could be in danger, imraan still made an effort to find ismail……so that alone shows how important this is to him……”

Its true……imran and his family probably really love and care about ismail….to travel all the way and risk his life and whatever little he may have, just to find his son…..

Now that just shows that they are true family…unlike these rotten dogs that don’t even care about ismail, even though they live in the same town…

Me:”but dada, what about these rotten people?”

Dada:”the fact that they took ismail in and looked after him all these years, sheltered him, clothed him, fed him……ismail shouldn’t be bad to them you know…ismail needs to be the better one beti…..whatever they have done, they will have to deal with Allah about it…Allah is Most just….he will sort them out in the best possible manner…all I can say is that I hope they repent and regret sincerely what they’ve done inshallah beforE their eyes close oneday…”

Me:”but dada they weren’t even good to him…they really damaged him and ruined his life”

Dada:”beti… did the kuffaar to our beloved prophet(S.A.W)…..what torment and torture and humiliation didn’t he go through……but he always found it in his heart to forgive for the pleasure of Allah…..(Pause)…look my child…its never easy to forgive the hurt someone has caused you…..and Allah knows that…that’s why the reward for the one who forgives is so great….”

Me:”and what about what they could do to imraan dada?”

Dada:”beti, over 30 years ago there were no proper systems…..and after so many years I doubt they could have the little piece of paper with them…..ismail is an adult now….when he was a kid, it was probably just a threat to imran….nothing more….tawakkal alallaah…trust in Allah…..Allah is always with those who do good…..”

Me:”so you’re saying that they really can’t do anything to imraan?”

Dada shook his head convincingly….

Dada:”life is too short beti….ismail needs to go and see his mother, his family…try to mend things before its too late…..why don’t you call him over…discuss things with him….our doors are open my child….”

Dada is such an amazing person….his advice is so valuable….and has so much of wisdom behind it….

Ismail remained stuck in the room…he didn’t want to see or speak to anyone…he didn’t want to eat, so I made him a toasted sandwich instead and took it up to the room…..I conveyed to him whatever dada had said…..

Ismail:”unfortunately I can’t forgive them…I never will……I’ve decided that since they aren’t my parents….I’m cutting them out of my life completely…..I need to take control of my life……they can go to hell for all I care……”

Me:”in the end of the day, its all upto you love….and you know I’ll stand by you throughout it all…I love you…and I’ll support you all the way…”

Ismail:”and as for imraan…I don’t know….you don’t understand..its not easy for a guy, after so many years to just accept the fact that you’ve got another family and just be all happy and jump straight into things….”

Me:”but babes…what if something happens to errr….your….err mother……won’t you regret?or feel bad that you never made any effort to fix things?or re-unite?”

Ismail:”I don’t know……..I’m numb….I don’t really care about anything really….I’ve been through enough already”

Me:”ok fine….if you don’t want to, then I will…..give me imraans number……”

    That is why making mashwara or asking others for advice is soo important … Especially elders – cos they have more rational thinking and also see beyond what we can see … And also with her Dada – he adds in a lot of Islamic perspectives so they r really fortunate – ‎​​​الحمد لله

    And also – he’s not directly related so he’ll use his head n not his heart to advise n make decisions ..
    I just hope that Ismail makes the decision to go see his family – this may just b the right thing for him – where he’ll get love n affection from his OWN family – ‎​​إنشاءالله

    ‎​​​​جزاك الله

    I think when it comes to forgiveness ladies tend to forgive morw then the men do. It takes a very long time for the men to both forgive and forget
    i aslo do hope ismail decides to give imraan and his family a chance.
    Faaiza will sort everything out. She has that ability😆

    Alhamdulillah she had Dada to turn to for advice, he seems to have so much wisdom
    I can understand how Ismail must be feeling that firstly he was treated like a rubbish then after all that he’s told that they are not his parents and lied to him n realizes that his whole life he lived a lie
    Hope everything works out for the best for him n he goes n meet his ‘own’ family. Maybe it will make a difference to his life ان شاء الله

    Abu Hurairah RADHIYALLAAHU ANHU narrates that SALLALLAHU ALAYHI WA SALLAM said: “Whoever offers six Raka’at after Maghrib Salaah (on any day), without evil talk in between, a reward equivalent to twelve years of worship is given to him.” (Tirmidhi)‬‬

    Can’t imagine hw Ismail must b feeling. Dis is emotionally draining.
    He should tk Dada’s advice. I think he should meet his own famly. Dey sound like gud pepl. Hopefully dis will bring hapiness in2 his life.
