Salaams I am Razia Mohamed , I am 11 years old, and I am very proud to be born in a Muslim family  ,since I lost my mum I have been lonely and sad ,but I have a strong family of which they support me , through  my pain and they are very  much helpful towards me ,I make dua everyday for me and my family  so that we can be strong I also make dua for my mum that Allah  can grant her Jannatul Firdaus .Dua makes me strong everyday  Jazakillah Khayr below is her art ,she draws beautifully Alhumdulillah for her age!

the next few lines are from Twaeba Imedi 

slm guys  I am  Twaeba my  school  is Bagale Primary School and I am 13 years old l like  madrasah because I love Islam ,I am so happy I am a Muslim and I am happy because I live with my family, I am in grade 6c and love my school.and this is what she drew,

And the next written material was actually  typed out by my 11 year old  daughter  ,I was so thrilled as to how she listened to the video and typed our word for word ,as the video had an Arabic recitation  ,and she copied the subtitles  from the video ,she wrote these in her diary and texted me via her tablet ,and what she has written are so beautiful verses from the Quran regarding  overcoming  grief and death etc as we still saddened  by my late husband’s passing away ,again I reiterate  it’s not easy to lose a loved one .
I seek refuge in Allah from Shaytaan the rejected one

In the name of Allah the merciful the most compassionate.

Let those who sell the life of this world for the hereafter fight in the cause of Allah .

And he who fights in the cause of Allah and is  killed or achieves victory, we shall bestow on him great reward.

And what is wrong with you that you fight not in the cause of Allah, and for those weak, ill-treated and oppressed,among men women and children,whose cry is ,”our Lord! Rescue us from this town whose people are oppressors, and raise for us from you one who will protect and raise for us from you one who will help.

Those who believe ,fight in the cause of Allah and those who Disbelieve fight in the cause of taaghut falsehood (Shaytaan etc).

So fight you against the friend of Shaitan,ever feeble is indeed the plot of Shaitaan 

Have you not seen those who were told to hold back their hands ( from fighting) and perform Salah and give zakaat ,but when the fighting was ordained for them, behold! A section of them fear men as they fear Allah or even more.

They say : ” our Lord why have you ordained for us fighting?” “Would that you had granted is respite for a short period?” 

Say;”short is the enjoyment of this world.

The hereafter is (far) better for him who fears Allah, and you shall not be dealt with unjustly even equal to the thread ( inside a date seed). 

“Wherever you maybe,death will overtake you , even if you are in fortresses built up strong and high!” And if some good reaches them ,they say this is from Allah ,but if some bad befalls them they say this is from you (o Muhammad) say:”all things are from Allah ,”so what is wrong with these people that they fail to understand any word? What ever of good reaches you it’s from Allah but whatever bad befalls you it’s from yourself and we have sent you (o Muhammad) as a messenger to mankind and Allah is sufficient as a witness. 

end of verse Subhanallah the Quraan speaks only the truth !
