Alhamdulillah, I went to the NRD at Putrajaya and registered the birth of my son yesterday. Everything proceeded smoothly and within the hour I received the birth certificate for MU’AWIYAH RAYYAN NIESHAEM BIN MOHD ELFIE NIESHAEM. So the name is officially registered and he is recorded as an individual in the national registry.
Alhamdulillah, I am now a proud walid of Mu’awiyah Rayyan Nieshaem bin Mohd Elfie Nieshaem bin Juferi bin Kasman bin Shafi’i. He is named after a Companion of the Prophet SAWS and the first Caliph of the Ummayad dynasty, Mu’awiyah ibn Abi Sufyan. He was born two weeks early, yesterday, and the timing took us quite by surprise, I must admit. But his arrival is definitely a blessing from Allah SWT and I will never ask for anything else.
