A colleague friend that I have recently been working with on some media projects lost his parents at a very young age - in his teens!
We're about the same age, both youngest in our families and it hit home - real hard!
Could I bare the loss of my mum and dad? Could I have handled it at such a young age?
Surely to Allah we belong and to Him we return...
From amongst Allah's many blessings is our parents - for without them we wouldn't be here. Our mother who carries us and protects us for nine months and then gives birth to us...our father who works day and night to feed us...and both of them nurturing us to be who we are today.
If you have parents - give them a hug, give them a kiss, tell them how much they mean to you and spend some time with them.
If your parents soul has returned to its rightful owner then may their souls rest in peace and may you ALL be united with your parents in Jannah al-Firdaus - ameen!
Allah (swt) has blessed us immensely - let's thank Him for all these blessings....
