Ramadhan and Rayyan

Now we muslims are in the fasting month..alhamdulillah, so far i still hasn't missed my fasting..thou it gives me unease feeling inside my belly - due for few days already for my monthly-best-friend's visit..cuak k..cuak yang teramat nie..

All this while, when it comes to month of Ramadhan, it always remind me of my dear brother, Ramadhan..when he was small, he was so happy everytime he heard his name mentioned on tv..it's like, he's the celebrity of the year..pagi Ramadhan, tghari Ramadhan, petang Ramadhan, and malam also Ramadhan..being a small naive boy really enjoiced his moment there..and only slowly when he grew up, he starts to think that during Ramadhan, u have to fast.and when he became older, he also learns that, during Ramadhan, straightly for one month, he need to be an Imam for terawikh - which is a big thing for our apak's big heart..hehe..

well..enough of Ramadhan - he's in Jakarta now..pursuing his degree..so this is the 1st Ramadhan Ramadhan is not with us..but, it's Jakarta only..i think my mak thinks that its like from here to Perlis kot, because every day she's checking on him..hehehe..anak manja...

And as i'm become older, i got to know that, there's another thing that u should know during Ramadhan..there's a special gate of heaven which allows fasting people in Ramadan to enter..
The gate of heaven which allows fasting people in Ramadan to enter..

Shal bin Sa'ad reported the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: "Paradise (Jannah) has a door called Rayyan (the quencher), which is preserved for those who observed fasting on the Day of Judgment. It will be announced, 'Where are those who observed fasting?' The door, Rayyan, will not be closed until the last one of them enters." (Bukhari and Muslim)

Yes..Rayyan..and so i was so in love with this name..i loves reading novels..reading the story, the characters and the names the writers gave to the characters gives me ideas on what to name my babies..hehe..whenever i like or think of a name, i'll jot it down somewhere and seek for the meaning..and the same thing happened when i came cross RAYYAN..so, i told myself, i'll have my baby named as Rayyan..

And i kept waiting..the idea of me having a kid of my own is one thing, but to get a baby, u do have to get married..alahai..lemahnya rasa..it's not that its hard to get married..hahahahah..basically, we girls don't need to kumpul duit hantaran..juz go and pilih kain, buat baju, duduk diam jer lar kan..takde masalah..but to get the one yang akan kena kumpul duit hantaran tue was a major problem..hahahahhaa..(daddy..no offence..juz keep reading..) hey..it's not easy to know whether he's the one or not ok..and it's not for a day, then u'll get a new one the other day..manede cantu...

So i waited..and waited..and waited..until one day, a news from mak really hit me.."wan nyah dapat cucu lelaki, anak abg du..nama dia Rayyan.." Aaaaaaaaaa?? o know..not rayyan..pls..not that name..Arrrrrrrghhhhhhhh!!!..wan nyah is a wife of apak's cousin and mak's best friend..and abg du is my 2nd cousin..a'ah..kalau ikut hubungan tue mcm dh saudara jauh..but dun forget that i also mentioned, she's one of mak's best friends..meaning, we all always met..now and then..aduhh..

Seriously i got so frustrated..i told mak, "Deng suka nama tue..deng dh plan nk guna nama tue.." mak asked me for the meaning..and i told her..and she said, "guna jer lar.." hahahaha..i juz laughed..when to use, god knows...

And alhamdulillah, i got a girl as my 1st..i want a girl..too many boys/guys/men inside the house..i need a girl..i need to share my interest and my stories, that only we girls know and undertand..so i still kept the name Rayyan..tak apa..ambik lar siapa nak..tp i'll make sure one day i'll have my own Rayyan..

It's a well known story telling, i don't have to wait long till i got pregnant, AGAIN..and i do hope, this time, i'll get a boy..so i could Rayyan him..hahahahha..god listened to my prays..i got a boy..unlike the 1st one, we named her immediately after she was born (there's a hadith saying we should name the baby right after born)..this time we waited till seventh day (its a sunnah Rasulullah)..mak still remember that i wanted to name my boy, Rayyan..she mentioned about it before i delivered..she said, she told mak long about the name..hehe..obviously, she also likes the name..hehe..

Yeah..so we named our boy Raja Dzia Rayyan Irtiza..he was born on 2nd week of Syawal..hehe..NO!! we had Ramadhan already..that doesn't mean we want Syawal..

Rayyan..or ayyen..we juz hope that he'll be as wise as his name..insyaallah...

Rayyan and the meanings that i browsed..

Rayyan M Luxuriant, One of The Gates of Paradise

Origin : Arabic - Atmosphere, galaxy, the heavens
Origin : Persian - Fragrant herb, sweet scented herb


People name their children to distinguish them from others. The baby must be named on the seventh day. According to a Hadith a child must be named promptly on birth. The baby name must be meaningful. "You will be called by your name on the day of judgment" this is another reason why it is important to chose a baby name with good meaning.

Selamat Menghabiskan Puasa All...
p/s all - and wan nyah was so irritating..everytime she heard us calling Rayyan, she'll asked, "Rayyan?? mcm nama cucu i ker??" again and again - YES!! tapi x ada kena mengena dengan cucu u..hahahaa..if i may add, this Rayyan is a lot cuter and slimmer than your Rayyan..hahahaha..gila emo seorang ibu aku nie..she's not forgot it because of her age..she juz couldn't care less..yeah..so do i..
