When I was 18 years old my father gave me 6 small books…I began to read and some hours later, it must already have been midnight, I had read all these six books. This was my life with all its „ups and downs“, my first words, my first steps, my adventures, my dreams, my childhood diseases, sad days, happy days, life with my family…simply my whole life until today… in the words and through the eyes of my father.
When I was pregnant for the first time I began to write… and I hope that my children will enjoy as well…For me this is more valuable than any photo, video recording or anything else. We as Muslims are not allowed to take whole pictures from a living creation of Allah [everything that has a soul], especially from the face [maybe you know this even from other cultures.. „the eyes are the mirror of the soul“ and something like this]. So this [for me and for „us“ as muslims] is an alternative, something that I can give to my children once [instead of photos and these things].
Maybe you’re inspired to do the same?
