My Mother, My Angel (Madina Jabeen)

A baby asked God, “They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?”

“Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you”, replied the God.

The innocent child further inquired, “But tell me, here in the heaven, I needn’t do anything but only rejoice, sing and smile to remain always happy; who shall take care of my happiness there?” God said, “Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will enjoy your angel’s love to remain very happy in perpetuity.”

Again, the child asked, “And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don’t know the language?” God said, “Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak.”

“And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?” child cropped up another question. God said, “Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray.”

“Who will protect me?” God said, “Your angel will defend you even if it amounts to risk her life.”

“But I will always be sad as I will not be able to see you anymore.” God said, “Your angel will always talk to you about me and will teach you the way to come back to me, even though I will always be next to you.”

At that moment there was much peace in heaven, but voices from earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, “God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel’s name.”

God replied, “She is your ‘Mother’ and you will simply call her, ‘Mom’.”
