Last night, I got a question above from my son.
Kaka asked me when I covered him with a blanket, “Who is keeping me when I’m sleeping, Mom?”
“Hey Dear, that is a nice question! Do you know we have one nose with two nostrils, two ears, and one mouth. It’s amazing, when we’re sleeping, the insects never enter into those senses. So, who is keeping you when you’re sleeping? Do you know, Dear?”
Kaka shook his head, then gave his idea, “Mom, I can pin my nose and fold my ears, he..he.”, “Oh, Dear, are you sure you can do it?” I gave him a wide smile.
“Allah keeps you when you’re sleeping, subhanallah. What will happen to you if Allah does not keep you?”
“The ants, the mosquitos and the other insects will enter to my mouth, my nose, and any other parts of my body.” said Kaka.
“Exactly, my Dear! And now please pray to Allah before you take a sleep.”
“بسمك اللهم أموت وأحياء”
“Mom, does Allah sleep like us?” Kaka asked again. He is very enthusiastic to know about it.
“Oh, no Dear! Allah never sleep and will never sleep forever. Allah is our creator. He is different with us, because we’re His creations.”
“Oooh, I see!”
“Good night, Dear! Allah keeps you, insha’Allah.”
Yeah, it was our discussion. A simple discuss, but I hope my son can believe Allah as His God. Allah The Almighty. Allah who always keep us and this universe entirely. Allahu Akbar!!
Allah has said about it in surah al-Baqara : 255
“Allah-there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence. Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them, and they encompass not a thing of His knowledge except for what He wills. His kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation tires Him not. And He is the Most High, the Most Great.”
