This is a poem that I composed upon the birth of my child.
We inserted this poem inside our baby’s aqiqah book:
It was on May 20, 2015 that you were born
Way overdue ten days later
Staying inside my tummy for a mere ten months, ten days!
When you should have been out on May 10, 2015 instead
You even wanted to continue sleeping
After being delivered normally, but vacuumed @1240pm
For the next six more hours as you only cried for a while
Once you were out.
Oh my baby Muhammad
How we both love you so
As we prayed day and night continuously
When you got conceived.
Be a soleh boy, my son and make us proud
In this dunya life towards akhirah
Lots and lots of love
From Umi Hanisah and Abi Amirrudin.
