I used to find comfort in writing a diary when I was a child. But when you write a ‘dear diary’ it’s kind of going nowhere. Your words stay on the page.
I learnt a lot later in life that talking to Allah or writing ‘Dear Allah’ transforms us. Because your words are going somewhere. They’re reaching Allah.
Therefore, building our child’s connection and reliance upon Allah is SO SO important. If we can establish their love and tawakkul at a small age, it will become second nature as they grow into adults. Insha’Allah they’ll be able to face a life of trials with sabr and understanding and hope.
