Eassa@ Cracking Walnuts

A couple of days a go, I was with Eassa listening to one of my favourite childhood recitations of the Beautiful Names of Allah:

Eassa: I really like this. They just said the name Al-Jabbar [The Most Powerful], did you hear it?! Such a good name! I want to call my son Jabbar.

Me: Do you have names for your other children?

Eassa (without hesitation): Yes, Ali and Hussain.

Me: What about girl names?

Eassa: I really like this song, Mum. Can you teach it to me?
