A dua request…
Well, I’m not really one for dua requests but this piece of news really took the wind out of my sails.
Who’s the dua for? Well, let me summarise her story first so that you understand:
She’s someone who has lost two of her three children (both in their early twenties). They died within two years of each other.
The first (a boy; I knew him in university) died in a car accident. The second (a girl) died of cancer.
As for the third child, he is alive, alhamdulillah but she is being tested with him in other ways. (Sorry, it’s personal so I will not elaborate.)
I was supposed to meet her many years ago through a common friend yet ironically I ended up meeting her quite recently through a sister that I met on this blog!
You’d think that with two children having died that she would be a shadow of her former self. On the contrary, she was a jolly woman who gives Islamic classes. She praised Allah for aiding her through her trials and never uttered any words of blame.
When I saw her, I finally understood a statement that I had heard about gratitude to Allah showing on one’s limbs.
Today, she is facing another test. Her husband was diagnosed with cancer a few days ago, and will have an operation in two weeks.
I was shocked and both the sisters (the one that was supposed to introduce us and the one that eventually did do that) were speechless with horror.
I request all of you to PLEASE pray for her husband’s swift recovery and to pray that things are made easy for her.
Please don’t pray like you’re praying for two strangers, rather pray as though you are praying for your own friends or family members.
May Allah cure her husband and make things easy for her. Ameen.
