mariam’s tahnik

March 13, 2015

On Mariam’s 7th day into the world, we performed the Tahnik on her where we lightly graze some sweet dates and honey on her lips. A sweet symbolic gesture Muslims do on the 7th day to welcome the baby into this world.

I pray for all the goodness that Allah swt can give you in this world, Mariam Iman Shah, and I pray the ultimate reward for you is Jannah, my darling daughter. Grow up to be a good woman, kind to others, strong in iman, ambitious yet humble. Daddy and I will always do our best to provide you with all the goodness you deserve, and our only hope is for your happiness in this life and the afterlife.
