Bersunat, berkhatan and circumcise...

6th December 2008. We plan to register Aiman for his circumcision. I never had experience with boys before. Well, my feelings are mixed. Nervous and worry. Nervous because this is my first experience and worry that Aiman will have to be under confinement after the "sunat". I asked my friends Mida, Hajah, and Faridah who have sons and experienced and gone through all these worries.

During school holiday I called up RIPAS and it has to be on queue and Aiman's turn will be on the 25th of December 2009. Private clinics in Brunei have the service but Papa wants a Malay Doctor to do it. We decided to send him to a private clinic in Limbang after consulting with Zalinah, she said Klinik Dr Abd Rahman is having the service. Alhamdulillah, we do not have to worry much about it. But I was still worry about how to take care of him. Messaged my elder sister and she advised not to drink too much water and avoid allergic foods especially seafood.

We pushed off to Limbang earlier just to be in time. Aiman was prepared for he had done some research about it by asking Mustafa, his friend and some other friends too. He was strong and confident. I'm proud of him. When we took him to see the doctor, he was cool. I know he was scared inside but as we explained it's part of Islamic practice and it is encourage to do so. Cause there are reasons for what He asked us to. Cleanliness and Healthy. That's the answer. So Dr Rahman asked us to wait outside while he does the minor operation. According to Aiman, Dr Rahman recited prayers before the operation. Papa has gone to the toilet, nervous he said. To our surprise, within 30 minutes, it was done! ALHAMDULILLAH. And Aiman was in his jeans already.. it was the "clamp" method. It's Adib's turn next and he said "not until I'm nine years old". :D
