Islamic frames for children

Among the greatest blessings of Allah SWT is our children. There is no greater joy than holding your newborn child, caring for and teaching him/her our beliefs and morals, and seeing them grow into practising, law-abiding, God-fearing Muslims.

The Quran has a special dua that a Believer can make for finding happiness in his/her child.

In Surah Furqan, verse 74, Allah (SWT) says:

“And those who say: Oh our Lord, gift us a gift for our spouses, our children, and future generations the coolness of eyes and make us leaders over those who are righteous, pious, and fearful.”

In the above verse, Ù‚ُرَّ‌ةَ أَعْيُنٍ, qurrata ayuni, means “the coolness of eyes”. It is an Arabic metaphor which means “a source of joy and comfort that cools your eyes.” Tears of joy, in Arabic and in the Quran, are referred to as “coolness of the eyes.”

The expression ‘the coolness of eyes’ also appears in Surah Taha, verse 40.

"[And We favoured you (O Moses)] when your sister went and said, ‘Shall I direct you to someone who will be responsible for him?’ So We restored you to your mother that her eyes cool (she might be content) and not grieve."

When Asiah, the pious wife of the evil Pharoah found baby Moses (AS) in the river, she picked him up, and said: “qurratu ‘ainil-lii wa lak”, may this baby become the coolness of my eyes and yours, referring to her husband.

We, at Baradari, have launched a collection of frames called “Qurratul Ayyuni”.  Get the name of your child written in Arabic calligraphy, below the words “Qurratul Ayyuni”, and framed. Keep it in your home or office. Also, gift it to a new parent on their child’s birth. Surely, a rare, personalised gift that will last for long and cherished by all.
