Maymoonahs' Secret Gifter

A couple of weeks ago someone posted a pile of colourful paper through our door with no stamp or anything, so I assumed it was from one of the neighbours. Today we received some crayons, pencils and a colouring book. Again I don't know who they are from.

It reminds me of a time when I was pregnant with Maymoonah, my husband couldn't find work and we were struggling with our rent. A brother turned up with bags full of shopping for us, Fresh Fruit, meat, rice and vegetables. He wouldn't tell us who they were from though, he said somebody had sent them.

May Allah increase us in love and mercy towards each other. Ameen.

Masha'Allah that is sooo noble of someone. Alhamdulillah, glad tidings from Allah. Remind sof when Abu Bakr (radi Allahu anhu) when he would anonmously drop off stuff to an old needy woman.....masha'Allah nice to hear of this sunnah of our pious predecessors in place. May Allah grant that person good in abundance in this life and the Next. Ameen

Subhan'Allah it is so good to hear that there are people out there that still hold onto the Sunnah of our Beloved Prophet (May Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him)

May Allah swt shower this good person with His Mercy and Blessings and grant them good in this life and the Next.

Nowadays its commonplace though for many to do things out of showing off, being appreciated and elavated in the eyes of others.

This is a serious vice and needs to be stayed clear of.

This example then reminds us that, it is our intention in our heart and the knowing that Allah will be pleased with us, is by far the most valuable, more than any words or praise any human can give.

May Allah swt protect us and guide us Insh'Allah.

You guys do realise there's hardly any Muslims round her area? Hence my hypothesis is: Abu Maymoonah's got a secret admirer. My brother thinks so too.

Saabirah!! your skepticism has no boundaries! See cos there are no muslims in her area that means some person makes the effort to go out of their way to buy gifts and give it anonymously. Well thats my theory. And why would an admirer give to Maymoonah, if its an admirer they want Maymoonah and mother out of the way. by getting gifts, they're sure to stay!! So its a good hearted muslim or even and non muslim. Dont listen to Saabirah, Umm Maymoonah, may Allah grant you all more in abundance. Ameen
