Today, which is a Monday 11 March, my grand-daughter Ayra is six-months old. On Saturday, 02 March 2012 a " Doa Selamat " (Thanksgiving prayer) was done at my home to supplicate for Allah's Blessings on the pending relocation of my daughter Nurul, my grand-daughter Ayra and Jalil my son-in-law to Singapore upon Jalil's moving to a new job there. This week they are there having a look at the apartments where they are going to move in by next month. Insha Allah they will have a good place to stay.
