Dear Friends and Relations, may Peace be upon you all,

Our baby was born this morning at 7:07 am April 7th Malaysian time. She is a baby girl. Her name means “radiant one”, but in the family she has the title KakUda, meaning “Fourth Daughter” and that’s what I’ll be using on the web for anonymity’s sake. The labor was short, only three hours. KakUda weighed 3.15 kg at birth. Her mother and she are both healthy and whole. I expect they will both come home tonight. Please keep them in your prayers.

  1. No wonder you were quiet all these time.

    Alhamdulillah!!! May Allah’s blessings be upon you all. Ameen.

  2. I have a question…

    What do you put in the birth cert?

    Munirah Gregory binti Gregory?

    and did you formally change your name to an arabic one after reversion?

    I am just wondering what to put in the Malaysian birth cert if i have a baby one day.

  3. Mashaallah! I hope she grows up to become a young woman
    pleasing to both Allah and her parents. I hope she has a blessed, blessed, wonderful life. Wassalaam.
