Moses basket….say what?!

Leave a comment

I love Skype. Especially when it gives me the chance to have these kinds of conversations with my little brother!

Me – so are you excited for when I come home to have the baby?

Brother – well yes I suppose so.

Me – you will have to help me lots and make sure everything is ready for us.

Brother – Mum says she has your old Moses basket for when you come back from the hospital. Hey wait (shocked and worried expression on his face)…….what religion will your baby be?

Me – Well he or she will be a Muslim, why do you ask?

Brother (having recently covered a little about Islam in school) – WELL THEN YOU CANT SAY MOSES BASKET YOU HAVE TO SAY ALLAH’S BASKET!

Alhamdulilah. I didn’t try to explain who Musa (RA) is to us. My brother is only 11. I just enjoyed the moment. 

Noora, xx
