"Anonymous" strikes again :(

Salaam and peace, ya'll. :) So I had this in my comments today:

Anonymous said...
I just want to say that I read your profile and I am horrified that you said 3 of your children were created from birth, and one from love. I hope your 3 older children never read your blog and see that there was no love involved when they were created and born. You may not like your ex, but there is no reason your children should ever think they were born from anything but love. You are a horrible HORRIBLE person for saying, thinking and believing that. You are a sad excuse for a mother, after saying that about your children God will NEVER allow you to enter your Jannah.

Anon, you are an idiot. I have 3 children by birth that I gave birth to so they are indeed my children whom of course I love. I have another child that is a stepchild so we are not blood related but only by love. That is one way people say stepchild instead of saying "step" and making them feel less. Idiot. Pure and simple.

Now, is my little "About me" blurb on the side really confusing? I assume Anon thinks I am talking about Aaminah as the one from "love" but they would be wrong. I gave birth to her, just as I did my two sons whom I also love. My stepson, Hamza, I love also but he is only my son through love ie the love I have for his father and now of course for him.
I thought it was a sweet way to say I have 4 children but only 3 are my born children from my blood. I don't like the term "step" because to me it denotes less or different from the others. I was trying to be sweet. I said "four great children" so how does that make them not loved??? I swear, some people make my head hurt. And they weren't brave enough to put a name with their comment. AND... said I was a horrible mother and didn't deserve Jannah
Are you freakin' kidding me?? Subhanallah, who says that to anyone, but especially to ANOTHER Muslim??? Allahu rabbi, it really shocked me. I don't wish that on anyone, even people who have done me wrong. I sincerely hope Anon reads this and realizes their ignorance. I mean, what part of me seems like I don't love my kids? I don't talk about Zack and Alex as much because they are teenagers now and don't like to have their business spread around; Aaminah is still small alhamdulillah and doesn't have an opinion.
And if God forbid Anon really thought I meant that, why wouldn't they kindly say, Sister that isn't correct. I mean, wth? OK so that's that and alhamdulillah. Ma salaama ya'll!


Anonymous said...

Wow, talk about an overreaction from that Anon. Looks like they really need reading comprehension skills lol

Umm Aaminah said...

Seriously! And in retrospect, I don't think they are Muslim anyway because they said "your" Jannah; well it's not mine! Anyway I typically don't comment on those kinds of posts but there is always the chance this is someone I am acquainted with in person and I just wanted to set the record straight. Would have been happy to do it privately but I had no email address. Crazy people subhanallah... And they obviously don't know me because they said 3 older children; they would know Aaminah is the baby and that I only "birthed" 3 babies. Bless! lol Thanks for being a KIND anon!!!

HijabiMommy said...

Wow. I'm sorry you received such a mean and ugly comment. I'm just going to assume this person is someone new and hasn't read your blog before. Or else they are just plain hateful. Because anyone who has read your blog for a minute knows just how much you love your children. And how hard you try to be the best mother you can be to all of them. Masha'Allah, you are a great mom. Don't let this one ugly comment get to you.


Ugggghhhh....I hate internet trolls...

People you can't read are so annoying. So are people who have a little sense and misapply it terribly.

Love to all your children;). I find a lot of inspiration from you as a mother since you seem so good at mothering, hehehe, and I personally struggle with this aspect. So whatever anonymous.

Read the blog. Learn something.

I couldn't help but laugh when I read that comment because *seriously* it was so obvious what you meant.
I hate when people hide behind "anon"- yuck.
Take care!

Umm Aaminah said...

Thanks Party! I usually do not EVEN let it get to me but there was just sooo much vitriol behind their words and yes, it really DOES bother me that someone would think I didn't love all my children.

Have a great day!
