), your Lord and Cherisher and the Lord and Cherisher of your fathers of old" (Surah As-Saffat, 126) 💔 12/11/2017 💔
So it's been one year since my pop's left and returned to his creator, my role model, one whom I'll always look up to.I'll always appreciate you when you gave us something from NOTHING. I'll remember and act upon what you taught me of life, patience, reality and remember your righteousness, wisdom and humbleness. 💔😔😢 Not a day goes by without having you in my thoughts, duas 🤲 the memories and ups and downs we've had. It's times like this that makes you realise that life is precious but having your true companions (parents) around consists of something else. Life is indeed a journey but of some short nights and we must all return back to the creator in our own time.
There were times when I was bought down to my knees of the ordeal I had to face, hard to believe that this day had come and face it, which left me socially and emotionally drained. These past months were but of sacrifices, struggle and darkness. Where days became difficult and as anxiety arose with sleepless nights. But it was spirituality, faith, patience, acceptance of reality and words from Al-Muqeetu (controller of things)- كُلُّ نَفْسٍ ذَائِقَةُ الْمَوْتِ ("Every soul shall taste death") Quran [3:185] إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعون "Surely we belong to Allah and to Him shall we return" Quran [2:156] that restarted me up and bought hope, lightness back in me. Truly Allah loves those whom he tests.
What's left is the lessons learnt, appreciate and cherish what I have left, 👸🏻🌹❤️ and stay on the path my old man left me on 🌈. I'll always be the man you wanted me to be, guardian of your house and the protector of your woman. Until we meet again #INSHA
'ALLAH 🤲 📿 🌹 🌸 🤲 #AlFatiha #Dad #RIP #RoleModel #Companion
