You can learn so much about yourself, life, and God by observing your children. Today my 38 month old spilled something again after spilling the same thing this morning. He didn’t want me to be mad, so he starts cleaning it up and saying, “I clean it. I clean it.” Then when he saw that I got frustrated, he threw himself on the ground and said, “I bad kid!” I immediately stopped being mad and was now focused on assuring him that he was NOT a bad kid, but a good kid! Not only did my anger disappear, I was now focused on making HIM feel better! WOW! Bingo! How did Adam (AS) get forgiven? “Qala rabbana thalamna anfusana wain lam taghfir lana watarhamna lanakoonanna mina alkhasireena”: “They said: “Our Lord! We have wronged our own souls: If thou forgive us not and bestow not upon us Thy Mercy, we shall certainly be lost.” (Quran 7:23) He ‘threw himself down’, so Allah, not only forgave, but picked him back up! Allahu akbar!
