Three Bald Men

Haziq initially did NOT want to shave his hair off. Which is understandable. And I didn't want to force him anyway. It does not nullify the umrah and plus he is still boy.

But most importantly i don't like making him do things without him knowing why should he do it in the first place. I prefer that he feels he want rather than because Ibu said so. But this does not apply to basuh pinggan, kemas bilik, lipat plastik dan sebagainya. :P

But then we talked about humility and such. I also narrated this hadith

Bukhari :: Book 2 :: Volume 26 :: Hadith 785
Narrated Abdullah bin Umar:

Allah's Apostle said, "O Allah! Be merciful to those who have their head shaved." The people said, "O Allah's Apostle! And (invoke Allah for) those who get their hair cut short." The Prophet said, "O Allah! Be merciful to those who have their head shaved." The people said, "O Allah's Apostle! And those who get their hair cut short." The Prophet said (the third time), "And to those who get their hair cut short." Nafi' said that the Prophet had said once or twice, "O Allah! Be merciful to those who get their head shaved," and on the fourth time he added, "And to those who have their hair cut short."

Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. prayed three time for Mercy from Allah to those who shaved their whole head.

He then agreed. tee he he. Ahamdullilah. I pray that Allah will always send guidance to my children.

three bald men in front of kaabahAnd when the men came back after doing their tahlul (I went straight back after my snip snip. Tak kuasa nak tunggu. dah pukul 2 pagi), my lover, Mr Fath (we went with the Faths family) and Haziq, they all came back looking like aliens. Two big ones and one small one. Cute!

To tell you the truth, I cringe thinking what my lover would look like bald. He had never gone bald. In fact the first time I met him, he had this long thick shiny healthy black hair. Oh so macho!

Now bald, my my my still macho. :P

And I love playing with their growing hair. It's like caressing a carpet or those velvet fabric. I was checking out whether the hair colour would change like velvet when you caress the fabric. Caressing their not so bald hair is very stress relieving i think. It pricks your hand a bit but on the other hand it is very soft. It would bend when you go against the grain but would go back to the hair root direction. Sangat menggeramkan.

Do you know that for the first two days, the sticky tiny hair left on the head is like a velcro. It will stick to the ketayap or your shirt. Each time you pass a fabric it will stick to those hair like a velcro.

Even ihsan, Elisa's son would rub Haziq's head. Saying smooth as he rubbed it along the grain, saying rough as he went against it. Smooth rough smooth rough smooth rough smooth rough, he went.

Apparently growing tiny hair after shaving it bald makes your head more of a public property. And beware playing with it can be very addictive!

oh yes, it is very very very addictive..
kadang2 bila terbangun tengah malam pun I felt like reaching out... and touching touching.
tee hee.

Tapi cepat lah rambut diorang tumbuh and panjang.
I think Taufik look extra bulat with a bald head. With his hair, his head looked like rectangle a bit.

Nina @ BabyBoon said...

ooh.. i also cannot imagine my husband bald. his head is very bersegi-segi, not really round. we're planning to do umrah this year insyaallah (insyaallah, i truly hope so!!) so i think i'll get a chance to see him bald too lah ;)

love the picture! they really look like happy bald men (and boy). LOL!

p/s: hahaha.. when u said it was like velcro, i suddenly remembered gib's velcro-like hair after we cukur-ed his head at 3 months old. his sleep hat got stuck on his head and he got very cross!

Lollies said...

elisa - hahahhaha. so kelakar bila u describe it like that. betulkan addictive? tee he he

famy - tu lah kan. Mesti lagi kiut kalau oompa loompa ada jugak. But he has been pesterng us to make his hair bald. Bilalah ayah dia nak pi botakkan dia ni.

i pray that Allah makes it easy for you to go for umrah.
