Seed of Barakah
And we got 6 left to go…
Well, I have 6 exams left to go.
Alhamdulillah x 3, The paper was good. A pleasant paper that was, yes, indeed, rather.
I love pleasant papers like that. I can go to the loo and take a break from all that sitting down.
Let it be known; sitting down is hard work 😛
Nah, I went to the loo like 4 times during the paper!!
Drank lots of water the night before as well as earlier today, you see 😀
Yeah…I have this mouth ulcer…that really really really hurts 😦
AND it’s a big one…yeah, almost as big as the size of my pinkie nail!
Now that’s big!
You know what sucks?
Seeing/Reading about a full grown man complain about a wound smaller than a nostril.
So I’ll stop now 😛
I asked my mum what I could put on it to make it better (Mums always know these kind of things don’t they?) and she said habbat assaudah oil. Habbat assaudah (or also known as habbat albarakah – which literally means the seed of barakah or blessings) is the black seed that is widely sold in Saudi. Looks like this,
It’s also known as Black Cumen but if you want to be really fancy about it, it’s scientific name is Nigella sativa.
In Islamic medicine, this seed is held in very high regard (hence the name ‘seed of blessing’) and it has been used for hundreds of years.
And I conveniently forgot all about it.
So anyway my mum told me to use the black seed oil…and I asked, “Are you sure it’ll help?”
And she turned to me and said, “The Prophet P.B.U.H. once said that this seed can cure all diseases but death – I’m sure it can handle an ulcer”.
In the words of the Wacky Met…”~nyeah”.
I completely forgot about how we used to apply this oil to Umar’s lips when they crack (thanks to a cold night) and they healed by the end of the day!!
And look at his lips…
There it is, Umar’s Infamous Pout.
Look at his good looks lah!
Umar! What are doing with such stunning good looks aye?! Huh? What are you doing with it huh?
Helmi got all the height and you got all the good looks and nice skin and everything!
I just got stuck with all the HAIR.
Yeah, but if your good looks were to be any indication of the beauty within you…I’d say it’s doing a pretty good job, little guy 🙂
Yup, you are our seed of barakah 🙂
I’ve already applied the oil.
Now I’m gonna try and see if my pout looks as good as his 😉
Good luck for the rest of your exams my friends!
And [the seed] is BLACK!!! 😉
