    Asalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu ukhtee

    May Allah ease your pain and grant you sabr Ameen!

    Wallahi, I cried so much after I came on your blog. I have recently come to learn more about "grief" And have realize the immense power Allah has over His slaves.

    Ya ukhtee, I'm a mother. And I know the pain you must feel, though I cannot fully comprehend it. It is sometime hard to believe, but in these trials there is always some benefit. And there is definetely reward for those who are patient.

    " And We indeed tested those who were before them. And Allah will certainly make (it) known (the truth of) those who are true, and will certainly make (it) known (the falsehood of) those who are liars, (although Allah knows all that before putting them to test)."

    Tests and trials are part of a believer's life. Just hold on to the rope of Allah and never give up hope.

    From your posts it seems you are mashAllah very strong. You are holding very well mashAllah and may you continue to hold on strong.

    Sometimes the hardest thing that you deal with living in a country like canada, is that people around you have amazing life. The default people in this country are the happy people and rarely you would find people around you, who are suffering through great grief. Personally that has been the hardest part for me. But you know what, maybe it is through this beloved daughter of yours, that you shall the Garden under which the rivers flow. Maybe she will be the one who will have you honored on Yaum Al Qiyamah. So rejoice ya Umm Samaah. For you shall be reunited to her! InshAllah!

    A heartfelt email from one of my co-worker. A sister in humanity.

    Fareheen, I heard late yesterday that your niece had passed away. I want to say, I am so sorry to hear and my condolences are extended to you and your family. When things like this happen, I always wonder why and to the most innocent but then I think it is not for me to understand but to accept as their is a higher power who controls and knows all.
    In my faith, we believe we are all visitors here on earth and we all have to end our visit at some time but there will come a time of everlasting life once you "believe". A time when there will be no sickness, famine, disease and a time to rejoice and see loved ones who passed and also "believed". I truly feel babies and children have a "free pass" to everlasting life as they had no chance of making a choice.
    I hope you don't take think I am preaching to you but I felt your attachment and love for your niece last week when you were talking to Marilou and I last week. I also don't want to upset you but give you a sense of hope.

    Assalamualikum Br Hassan,

    How are you doing Ya Akhee?

    I heard about little Samaah leaving us to stay in peace and mercy with Ar-Rahman the MOST MERCIFUL, so grieve
    not my brother and continue showing the Sabr that you and Sister Naila have been demonstrating, May Allah Subhanao Wata Aala increase your reward by his mercy
    better your solace, and may he give you Sabr-un-Jameel and may he bless you both in this Dunya and the hereafter with what is better than what he took away (in ways that he knows and we know not)

    Verily to Allaah, belongs what He took and to Him belongs what He gave, and everything with Him has an appointed time.

    InshaAllah hope to see you soon.

    Inna lillahi wa inna illahee rajioon. Sakina just told me about this sad news today. May Allah S.W.T. shower dear Sammah with His mercy and blessings, and may He reunite her with her beloved family in Jannah tul Firdaus ameen. May Allah S.W.T. bless her family with patience and strength ameen. Their faith in Allah has been an inspiration to us all. May Allah S.W.T. bless them with his mercy ameen.

    Our duas are with you.

    Assalamu'alaikum Naila,

    I heard this news yesterday, and since then Samaah has constantly been on my mind. Such a beautiful little baby girl MashaAllah! As I try to make sense of this, the only relief in this situation is that she's no longer sick and suffering. She's in a much better place now, and much much happier and healthy. May Allah (swt) grant you and Br. Hassan comfort and sabr during this difficult time. Her loss is felt deeply here, even to those of us who never got a chance to meet her.

    You're in our duas.
    Take care of yourselves.

    Hina & Arsalan

    As-Salamu `Alaikum:

    Inna Lilah Wa Inna Ilaihi Rajioon

    We offer our deepest sympathy to the entire Kibria family, and pray that Allah will grant them stenthgh and courage during this very difficult time.

    Our prayers and best wishes are with the Kibria family. It is always hard to lose a loved one but to lose one at such a young age must be very difficult for the family.
    May Allah grant you sabr in your time of loss.

    Naila and Hassan:

    Asalaamu 'alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

    I sat and searched my mind for words that would suffice for a message such as this. I found there were no words, nothing I could really say that would be enough. So from the outset I know this will not be enough, so please forgive me in advance.

    Please accept my deepest heartfelt condolences for you and your family. I will pray that Allah blesses you all with enough patience to deal with this situation. I will also pray that Allah reunites you, your daughter and Rasulullah (saw) in the next life. Ameen. But insha Allah, until that day:

    Fa innama'al 'usri yusra
    innama'al 'usri yusra

    Surely with difficulty is ease.
    With difficulty is surely ease.

    (Surah 94:5,6)

    Wasalaamu 'alaikum,
    Ali and Nadia Sahib

    I just got an email for Samaah's Janazza prayers. I kept telling myself its someone else. But then I saw your name as a sender and the blog name. Even then I said to myself, nah someone else. After visiting the blog, I realized, it was our Samaah. I don't know what to say dear. Its just so sad and I feel a lil lost inside.

    Truly to Allah, belongs everything in Heavens and Earth. Truly, Allah gives and Allah takes away. :-)

    May Allah Subhannah Wa Taalah grant you and your husband sabr and InshaAllah with a good progeny.

    Take care
