Al-Salaam Alikum,

Alhamdu Lilah, we were blessed with our first grand-daughter Ayla born for my daughter Chireen & son in-law Shadi on Sunday the 7th of Thul Qedah, 1438 A. H. (after Hijrah) coinciding with July 30th, 2017 of the Gregorian calendar at 12:36 PM, weighing 8.4 pounds (3.8 Kg), 21 inches (53.3 CM) long at Kaiser Santa Clara, CA. 
With Allah's blessings on all of us, mom & daughter are doing fine Alhamdu Lilah (talk to Shadi directly to check on him, you'll find him on cloud nine).
May Allah make Ayla from the Salehat (righteous) and make her best for her parents & the Muslim Umma, Ameen.
Congratulations to Chireen, Shadi and their families; best wishes for a righteous & healthy daughter.
Chireen & Shadi are registered on the following Baby Registries: and
