And What An ‘Îd Gift It Was!!!

We got a beautiful ‘Îd gift this morning (2:23am to be exact) in the form of a 6lb. 6oz. baby boy, and the praise is Allah’s! Needless to say I’m dead tired; I didn’t get to sleep until around close to 4ish, got up around 5 or 6 for Fajr prayer, it’s now quarter past 7 and ‘Îd prayer is in a few short hours. Anyhow, I just wanted to share the wonderful news with the visitors to my blog. I’ve got to start preparing for what promises to be an interesting day.

May the brothers and sisters who visit this little spot of mine on the internet have a blessed ‘Îd. I ask Allah to accept from you and from us, our fast, our standing in prayer during the wee hours of the night/morning, and the rest of our deeds done for His sake this blessed month. Âmîn!


About Rasheed Gonzales
My name is Rasheed Gonzales. I’m a Muslim convert of Filipino descent. Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, I was guided to Islam through one of my younger brothers and a couple of friends, all of whom had converted to Islam sometime before me (may Allah reward them greatly). I am married with four children (and the praise is Allah’s) and also a volunteer for the Qur'an & Sunnah Society of Canada, based in Toronto.

    I pray to Allah that you all enjoyed your day of Îd, and that He accepts our fasts and prayers from this past Ramadân, forgives us of our sins and allows us to live to meet Ramadân when it comes around again next year.
