Your Son Can Be Your Diaby (Henna) Buddy Too

Assalamu aleikum!

eid tatoo 3

In West Africa, Henna is often referred to as Diaby (Dee-ya-bee.) On the eve of eid, I looked forward to apply Diaby on my hands and feet even if I don’t have a daughter. It was more of a self-care intention. Anyway, my son wanted to take part in it, and I kept telling him that it’s only for girls, and that he had more hair and a beard, he could have partook in. Boy that I was wrong.

After his vehement requests and my husband saying once it was fine for him to play with Henna, I came to the conclusion that he could become my henna buddy. Yes, I’m not always right, haha!

I decided then that Diaby would take the role of a harmless kid’s tattoo. The lessons I learn from being a Mom are simply too many to list here. Alhamdullilah.

You learn more about yourself in the journey actually. Eid Mubarak folks!

Thanks for reading,
