Mowlana Hazar Imam and Begum Inaara Expecting a Baby!
Those are the words Mowlana Hazar Imam told us when we we shared the news that we were expecting our first baby when he visited us in November 1986.
"When is the baby due?"
Of course, I fumbled with the answer. He laughed and arched back his head in amusement and joy when I said "Maybe be on Imamat Day".
We all say "Mashallah! Mashallah!" at the happy news! Alhamdulillah!
My prayers have been answered. As soon I as I heard the news about the marriage I prayed that they should have children soon and increase the progeny of our beloved Prophet Muhammad. Mubarak! Mubarak! Rejoice!
Verses from the Holy Quran Upon the News of a Son to Prophet Ibrahim
[11.69 to 11.71] Our messengers came to Ibrahim with good news. ...His wife who was waiting on them, rejoiced. We told her that she would give birth to Ishaq (Isaac) and that Ishaq would beget Yaqoub (Jacob).
[11.72] 'Alas' she replied. 'How shall I bear a child when I am old and my husband is well-advanced in years? This is indeed a wonderful thing.'
[11.73] They replied: Do you marvel at the ways of Allah? May Allah's blessings be upon you, O people of the house (Ahl-e Bayt), surely He is Praised, Glorious.
[4.54] Do they envy the people for what Allah has given them of His grace? We gave Ibrahim's children the Book and the Imamat, and We have given them a grand kingdom.
[4.125] And who has a nobler religion than he who submits himself in entirety to Allah, does what is right and follows the faith of saintly Ibrahim, whom Allah Himself chose to be His friend.
