I used to call him ‘My Little Maulid Boy’ as he loves to attend Maulid events. Alhamdulillah, he still is. And today, he is NINE years old.
“Happy 9th birthday, Affandy. May Allah shower you with HIS utmost love, blessings and protection. May your love and devotion towards Allah and Rasulullah S.A.W deepens throughout your living years. May your passion in selawat will continue in order to receive the syafaat from our beloved Rasulullah S.A.W.”
As per his own personal request for his birthday, we invited Al-Fadhil Ustaz Solihin and our selawats brothers and sisters to our abode for the recitation of Qasidah Burdah with other selawat in between. Alhamdulillah, the event went well. I felt so bless to have my humble abode transformed into a garden of paradise, putting high hopes that Rasulullah S.A.W would be with us during all those selawats.
