Ummi, My very first teacher


"I received many messages from my daughter-in-laws and future daughter-in-law wishing me Happy mother's day but not a wish from you" she said last weekends.

I smiled. I know her. She doesn't really mind if her sons did not wish her or give her presents or flowers. All she ever wanted were our care and loves. So I said, "I'll post something about you in my blog as a sign of my love to you, Ummi". I hope she'll read this.

My Ummi (mother) is so amazing 
I'll tell you why. She and Abah (Father) raised us their eight sons with so much effort. If you have many siblings, you should knew how hard it is. She got my two elder brothers when she was still in university. Yes. and they were very naughty back then, my brothers. You can imagine how hard it is to have kids when you're still studying and managing your family at the same time. She has done all that.

My youngest brother, Fatih wasn't born yet

Ummi is a Teacher
She is a Chemistry and Science teacher at Munshi Abdullah secondary school therefore she has more problems to deal with. Students' problems. Teachers' problems. Sometimes she'll share them with me and abah since there are only us at home. and Abah will listen and give his best advices. I'm really grateful to have them as my parents. and also jealous when so many students wish her happy teacher's day.

and the list goes on..

Umi is a Mother 
Sometimes she would also tell me if she had problems with my brothers and daughter-in-laws. How she was worried about Naeem's sitting for his exams, about Fatih's and Basyar's studies in Matri, or about how tired Shafiq is doing all those works in JB. And about her daughter-in-laws who are pregnant right now. 

Abah reminds me, " a mother can take care of all her children, but you can never be sure that all her children will be able to take care of their mother when she's old"

Abah likes to tease my Ummi. He'll make weird faces in her pictures. =)

Thank you very much to my teacher of my life, Abah and Ummi for everything. Love you guys so much.

To the teachers in my family and to all my teachers from my schools and university, Many thanks for the teachings and endless coaching to guide me to where I am right now. Happy teacher's day.

Tadika abim, tadika Ummi, Sri Alor Setar, Sri JB, Seri Mersing, MATRI Perlis, UIA PJ dan UIA Gombak. 

and let me remind you with this quotation from Sami Yusuf's Muallim. The greatest teacher of all, Rasulullah.

We once had a Teacher
The Teacher of teachers,
He changed the world for the better
And made us better creatures,
O Allah we’ve shamed ourselves
We’ve strayed from Al-Mu'allim,

Surely we’ve wronged ourselves
What will we say in front him?
O Mu'allim...

note: I noticed this. My mother is a teacher, so as my two sisters in law and maybe my future sister in law. Does that means I need to find teacher as wife too? lol.

note2: There's some friends-bloggers who are teachers too. Zara, X-Po, Cik Nurull and many others. Happy Teacher's Day and may allah accept your teachings as Good deeds.
note3: I went to JPA interview after SPM to be a Mathematics teacher. If I pass back then, I would probably be called a teacher as well.
