On one of the Eid holidays we stopped by Taufik's friend's home in Gurun. 'Gulam' (I don't know what his real name is.. but that's what Taufik calls him, though I think that's his father's name) comes from a big family and according to his mom, she has like 20 over grandchildren or something.
The house was full of kids running around.
Anis and Ihsan fell asleep in the car and was still asleep when we carried them out into the house.
Ilham was the only one awake and he was gleefully eating the festive cookies.
Then came a cat.
The cat was really playful. He scratched one of the girls in jest and some of the boys were chasing the cat around, in and out of the house. It wasn't long before Ilham joined in the fun.
In the middle of a chase I heard Ilham ask an older boy,
"Saya Ilham, Kamu siapa?" (I am Ilham, who are you?)
The boy casually answered "Amin"
"Apadia??" (What??) Ilham asked, with a suprised tone.
"Oh!", Ilham raised a finger as if he just got an idea.
"Amin. Macam bahasa Arab. Allahummabariklanafimarozaktanawaqina-azabannar-AMIN...!"
(Amin. Like the Arabic language. [then he recites the dua before eating real quick]).
'Amin' is equivalent to saying 'Amen'

I thought it was hilarious.

she's so cute masha Allah =)

I can picture her cute face with the sudden idea in her mind.

The tragedy of life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal.
The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach.

Reminds me of a story someone told me.

Two brothers, Amin and Ahmad were praying side by side at the mosque. After the fatihah, the congregation (together with the elder brother) said Aa-min. Not wanting to be missed, the younger brother spoke out loud - Aah-maaad.

Fame is the scentless Sunflower, with a gaudy crown of gold;
But Friendship is the breathing Rose, with sweets in every fold.
