In the name of God, Compassionate, Merciful بسم الله الرحمن الرحيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم

In the name of God, compassionate & merciful بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم

3rd Nov: I stood in a hospital room at 4am reciting the shahadah, watching a family member pass away for whom many prayers, Quran chapters and dua' were read. Seeing the reactions of my family shows that watching death isn't the scariest experience for them, it's losing the people they depend on, respect and learn from.


Flowers for the departed

Death takes away that source of comfort, of regularity and leaves people lonely. The lesson from Muslim-hood though is to be prepared for it or at least study the process of dying, be strong and understand that while death is frightening, it's inevitable. You will die. Accept that.

Dozens of flowers were given to place on the grave for blessing. One Islamic teaching is to nurture plant roots as they're a divine source and provide unconditional remembrance of Allah. I'm still left with the unanswerable question...

Am I leaving Earth or arriving Home?
