Why don’t we have Kids ?

It has been six years since they got Married , but the couple was not blessed with a child. One night the couple began to whisper to each other: “why don’t we have kids ? Its more than six years by now.” I guess, there is a problem amongst us.The whispering, eventually became noisy.

Without telling to anyone, Ahmed and Maryam went to a doctor for consultation, and conduct the examination. The lab results revealed that the Maryam is barren, while Ahmed does not have any problem and there is no hope for her to recover in the sense that no opportunity for him to conceive and have children.

Seeing the result, Ahmed though mentally disturbed still said: Praise be to God!

Ahmed entered the room alone at the doctor’s lab and allowed Maryam to wait in the waiting room.

Ahmed said to the doctor: “I’ll call my wife to enter the room, but, please, will you explain to her that the problem is with me, while she does not have any problem.”

He told the doctor to do as he said, but the doctor refused and was amazed. However, Ahmed continued to insist and the doctor finally agreed to tell as he said.

Finally Ahmed called Maryam. She entered the doctor’s cabin and the doctor opened the envelope infront of her, then read it :” Oooh, Mr.Ahmed you are barren, while Maryam does not has any problem, and there is no hope for you to heal.”

Hearing the announcement of the doctor, Ahmed kept quiet, and looked at her Maryam with a face of someone who surrendered to the will of God.

Then the couple went home, and gradually, the news spread to their neighbors, relatives and friends.

 Five years later, since the hospital checkup; Ahmed and Maryam were patient, until finally Maryam lost her patience and said : “O Ahmed, I have been patient during the past 11 years, and did not ask for a divorce from you, and all the people have said: “how good and faithful wife I am. 11 years have passed, and even after knowing that her husband will not get any children still, she is loyal to him”. However, now it seems I can no longer be patient, I want you to immediately divorce me, so I can marry another man and have offspring from him, so I could see my children, cuddle and nurture them.”

Hearing Maryam’s emotions , Ahmed said: “Maryam, this is a trial from God, we must be patient”.

Finally Maryam said: “OK, I’ll hold my patience for another year, remember, just one year, no more”. Ahmed agreed, filled with great hope, that God may give the best solution for both.

A few days later, his Maryam suddenly became ill, and the lab results revealed that she was suffering from renal failure. Hearing the news, her psychology and emotions took a big toll .

She said to Ahmed: “All this is because of you, I always kept my composure, and now I’m like this, why don’t you immediately divorce me, I do want to have kids, I want a baby, …”. Maryam was at bed rest in the hospital.At that juncture, Ahmed said: “Sorry, I have a job overseas, and I hope you will be fine very soon”.

“Haah, go!”. Said Maryam. “Yes, I would go out and look for a kidney donor, may be”. Said Ahmed.

The day before the surgery, the doctor came to the bedside of Maryam and said that tomorrow will be the installation operation of the donor’s kidney.

At that time the Maryam was reminded of Ahmed, she said within herself: “What a husband I have got’ I am undergoing operation, and uh he just left me “.

Anyhow, the operation was successful. And after one week, Ahmed came back.

After nine months of operation, Maryam gave birth to a child. Then there was a rejoicing smile and joy in their life.

One day, Ahmed while going to office, forgot his personal diary on the table , a diary which he had kept hidden all this time. And unintentionally, Maryam got the diary, she opened it and started reading it.

She almost fell unconscious when she found the secret about herself and her household. She was shocked.

She immediately called Ahmed, and wept uncontrollably, and apologyized to Ahmed. And even after the event, for three months, she did not dare to look at Ahmed’s face.

Know that the donor was no other man but Ahmed himself. Yes, Ahmed had donated a kidney to Maryam, and nobody knew about it except the doctor. He had ordered not to disclose the secret (and thus made overseas job excuse). And he also got her operated through latest technology so that she could conceive.

Dear Reader, are you such a caring spouse for your Husband/Wife as we see Ahmed in the story?

    The researches, carried out by the Scientists concerned,
    reveal,, that the majority of the husbands are unfaithful
    to their wives, and the minority of the wives are unfaithful
    to their husbands..

    A touching story of love and sacrifice, at all cost and in all circumstance. A platonic love!

    Ohh Really

  16. Fatma August 29, 2012 at 7:46 PM #

    I dont think that Ahmed does exist in this world full of selfishs and liars..

    • Mohammad Urooj September 5, 2012 at 11:43 PM #

      I think its the other way round. Women are always selfish and they need more and more. The day you give less they start arguing and not remembering what good was done to them most of the time.

      • Fatma September 12, 2012 at 1:57 PM #

        Thanks Mohammad for you reply..
        First, in my comment I’m not addressing only men.. And I do agree with you on the fact that there are women that are selfish and liars as well but you don’t have the right to say that “all women are always like this”. Please stop stereotyping..

        • Mohammad Urooj September 12, 2012 at 3:49 PM #

          Ms. Fatma. I wish you had read my comment properly. I said “Women are always selfish…” AND NOT “ALL WOMEN ARE…” so I wish you had read it properly and then reply. See this is what I was talking about women twist the words and then accuse others. So it proves my point 🙂

            Chill Guys !!

      Dear Ms. Fatima/ Sister,

      Allah through his Messenger said dont hold negative feeling towards …. try to forgive and move….. there are goods and bad in every gender.

    Heart touching… And close to true story.

    I knew a couple without child owing to prob in wife. They lived a happy life and remained very contended..

  23. Gimbiya August 17, 2012 at 1:49 AM #

    This type of thing can only happen in imagination world. Any way nice reading it!

  24. Ian August 16, 2012 at 5:15 PM #

    Its a double dose of emotions, first the childless tragedy then the kidney transplantation. wow…
    And finally something great comes from SARA for the Husbands.
    Now there may be some proud husbands reading this and happy about the feel good story they have read.

  25. Sayid August 16, 2012 at 3:10 PM #

    There is no true love without understanding.

    The “bad” character here is the wife – there is no baby obligation in a couple.
    Only love.

    The rest, as we can say, is literacy.

    Nice story, but more a fairytale than a story which could occur these days (unfortunately)

  26. Salem Alshinqiti August 16, 2012 at 1:01 PM #

    WoW. Heart Touching.

    Loyalty is the noblest thing that distinguishes a human.

    I really enjoyed the reading, and It cost me a teardrop during a fasting day and am in need of every water drop in my body 🙂

    Big Thanks to Sara For Sharing and Eid Mubarak

    I don’t think that I can stay with out kids or let my husbend live his life without kids as well its too selfcentre but some ppl just doesn’t care about having kids like Ahmad if he really like kids he will get devource or just Marry another lady without devorcing if his wife agree to share him this way no one will feel that he make afaivore for another that he or she can’t return it back.
