This is so I don’t forget – Z seems to be on a roll at the moment!
1. Z: Ummi, are you Muslim?
Z: I’m a Muslim.
Me: Yes you are mashaAllah
Z: Is Allah Muslim?
Me: Smiling at his complete innocent ignorance!
2. Z: Ummi, if Allah puts us in the fire…
Me (cutting him short): Allah, won’t put you in the fire inshaAllah. Allah loves you.
Z: Yes, but if Allah did put us in the fire – are there ambulances in jahannam to take us out?
Me: (trying to contain my laughter)
3. Z is obsessed with letter ‘s’ and the sound that it makes. He spots ‘s’ everywhere – on the road, the back of cars, posters, billboards, books, on the computer – everywhere!
So, today at dinner – he kept getting off of his chair.
Me: (shouting for the fifth time – quite angry by now): Z, sit down!
Z: Sssss is for Sit in Sit down
Me: anger completely gone and laughing!
