Greetings from Saudi Arabia it is A'mal here and I am now twelve and a half I have been married to Azam for five years now, and have given him one Son and am pregnant again. I pray to Allah for another boy because I do not want my child to go through what I have. A boy will have a chance to make his way in this life, a girl will be forced to get married when still a child, just as I did. I was only seven when I was married. Seven a little girl in some eyes still and now at twelve I am a Mother. I have a six month old boy and am pregnant once again. A'zam seems to be pleased and in that area I am blessed many women are beat until they can take it no longer and kill themselves, but A'zam is a good man as men go and for that I must thank Allah.
It is nearing time for our evening meal so I must prepare that for A'zam before he gets home. I must also tend to the baby. I pray to Allah that the baby I am carrying is healthy and is a boy. I know that would make A'zam proud as well as spare the child to much grief.
I should be thankful that I have A'zam it could be so much worse. I could be one of those women who are beaten and abused. I am not so for that I am thankful still I wish I had a chance to be a child. Instead at the age of seven my childhood ended, now at twelve I already feel like I am much older.
Until next time this is A'zal may Allah find favor on you...
