- Ammi: what.
- Me: ...a small wedding in a masjid?
- Ammi: WHY. I was thinking about having 500 or 600 people!
- Me: What the hecksies. Why would you invite so many people to MY wedding.
- Ammi: Because it's MY daughter's wedding. It's everyone's happiness! And because everyone's prayers are with the guy and girl with they get rukhsati'd
- Me: But AMMI 500 600 PEOPLE FOR JUST OUR SIDE WHERE IS THE GUY'S SIDE GOING TO SIT
- Ammi: We'll get a big hall but one that doesn't cost a lot.
- Me: Big halls do cost a lot.
- Ammi: We'll have the wedding in that one hotel where that one girl got married.
- Me: 600 people will not fit in there.
- Ammi: Okay, I don't know if its gonna be 600 or 300. I have to make a list.
- Me: Better start making a list now.
- Ammi: I'm not gonna make a list now. What if i meet more people!
Whenever Ammi talks about her uncle who just recently passed away, I hear the word “ikhlaq” a good ten or so times. She goes on and on about how her uncle had the best of manners when dealing with everyone. He showed kindness and love to his family, friends, and those he just met. He showed mercy to those he didn’t know or did him wrong. Ammi looked up to him as her second father, a father who took care of her when her own father had passed away.
And after all the praise she says, “And it’s because of his manners that we’re all sitting here today praising him, missing him. Why we loved him so much. And it’s because of such an example that we strive to develop a beautiful ikhlaq so that one day people will remember us too when our time has come.”
