Shuib and the late Siti Sarah’s premature baby, Ayash Affan, who was born last Friday, is now in stable condition.
According to Shuib, her fourth child is now dependent on formula milk, and doctors recommend getting a supply of milk from a breastfeeding mother.
Acknowledging that it was a big challenge, Shuib admitted that there were a few people who volunteered to be her baby’s nursing mothers.
“Although some have offered to give breast milk, but I had to think about it when it comes to religious law,” he said after the tahlil ceremony and Yassin’s virtual reading last night.
In another development, the hospital gave a period of one month before Ayash was allowed to go home. More reassuringly, the results of the smear test were done twice and Ayash was confirmed not to have covid-19.
Shuib added that he is grateful to be surrounded by family and friends who offer a lot of help. For now, according to Shuib, his mother-in-law helps take care of the children if he has to go out to work. He is currently also in the process of finding a maid after a previous maid was also killed due to covid-19.
