Most people when they asked me what is the number one decision you have to make in your life, and most of them say it's marriage actually is not.
Number one decision in anyone's life is to have a child. Number two is to get married. So when Allah subhanaw taala blessed us with a child, we understood that it is for make it or break it for us because it's a hadith of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Kaffir be muddy.
