A wonderful friend

Gone but not forgotten. You were a wonderful friend and mentor. 
Rest in peace Khadijah.

Everything that we have belongs to Allah. When someone dies we say, Inna lillaahi wa inna ilayhi raaji'oon, which means: Indeed to Allah we belong and indeed to Him we shall return. This is not a supplication just for when a soul is lost. It is a supplication for every calamity that befalls a believer, even if his sandal were to tear. Why? Because everything belongs to Allah and everything shall come back to him. Sit and try to count the blessings Allah has bestowed upon you. Have you ever tried to count stars?

Khadijah you were a blessing to me. God bless you. 


  1. I had my shares of shocks this week. Please don't add this. I hope that I had miss understood this article, otherwise I can not take it.......fash

    They remain close to our heart
    Because they leave behind them beautiful memories for us to cherish."Anon.
