I was on an Islamic forum last weekend and chanced upon a link. I clicked on it not really knowing what to expect.
It made me cry.
This is a blog about a remarkable young woman named Asma bint Zia ul Haq who met severe trials courageously and stoically. Written by her brother, Omar, the entries are so heartfelt and vivid that one can almost picture this beautiful soul who has passed on. The siblings shared such a sweet relationship that the love truly shines through.
Makes me think… what have *I* done to prepare for the journey?
UKHTI! SubhaanAllaah, I was going to blog about the blog dedicated to Asma too.
I also cried.. I cried to bad ‘cos I dont think I’m anywhere near where Asma reached with regards to eemaan.
May Allaah have mercy upon her soul and expand her grave, aameen.
As Salaamu’alaikum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuh
I’ve just finished reading the whole blog about Asma. Mashaa Allaah! Puts me to shame, really. I complained all the time about my illness and was lacking patience. But Asma was the epitome of patience and firm faith.
May Allaah grant her a place in Jannatul Firdaus. Ameen.
