She couldn’t utter a word nor a sentence. There she standing and feeling open in the eyes of the man who is not her husband, but, a man so obsessed with her.
She quickly ran to her room and he was after her. She was lucky she got to her room before him.
Naheem was banging hard on the door, screaming her name.
“What do you want from me”? She asked him with a shaky voice.
“I want you” he uttered.
“You want me… But I am married, I am begging you in the name of our Creator to please stop this thing you are trying to do.”
“I can’t stop, I think about you all the time, I think am in love with you” he said.
“You ain’t in love with me, you are just obsessed me. Please Naheem stop it, once you do this you will regret it, please stop it.”
But all her pleads seem to be falling on deaf ears.
Just once Anisah and I will let you be.
Suddenly, Anisah’s phone rang and it was Yusuf calling to tell her he was on his way home.
“Please leave from here, my husband is on his way home” she pleaded.
“I won’t move until you promise to call me”
At first she was adamant but she agreed to call him and then he left.
Yusuf returned home and Anisah’s was happy the see him. He told her to get prepared that they will be visiting some of his friends the next day including Naheem. How would she tell him his friend was just here not quite long? she felt if she was quite it would be the best and so she decided to stay quiet.
Naheem was at home tending to Halira when they both had someone greet them in the proper Islamic way. Naheem went to answer the door, the first person he saw made him smile.
“Anisah you at our house today”? He asked.
“Yes, and she is with her husband” Yusuf said.
Naheem’s mood swung suddenly but he quickly hide his disappointed expression.
” Run away friend” Yusuf said and invited himself in.
“Please come in” Naheem invited Anisah.
Halira was so happy Anisah came to visit it has been a while after all. Both ladies were busy chatting and all this while Naheem’s eyes were on Anisah.
“How have you been?” asked Yusuf.
“Alhamdulillah, I have been fine” replied Naheem.
“Maa shaa Allah.”
“I can see you will become a father soon, may Allah(s w t) make it possible, Ameen.”
Two hours later
Anisah and Yusuf decided to take their leave.
“Thank you so much for coming, I feel so happy” said Halira
“The pleasure is ours” said Yusuf.
Life was peaceful for everyone, except… to be continued.
