'Every soul will taste death, and you will only be given your compensation on the Day of Resurrection..' (3:185)
I came across news of deaths almost weekly; friends of either side of my parents, colleague's relatives, friends..
Latest was when a hubby of a colleague, whom I acknowledge as a friend and sister though she is my superior, went to rest peacefully at dawn after battling thru his illness with numerous chemotherapy and medications for more than a year..
Leaving behind a wife to be a mother to 5 toddlers is certainly a challenge..
May Allah bestow His Blessings to my friend. to give strength and assurance in her heart to face the ongoing life without having a partner by the side..
Death is certainly a deep reminder..
For me to reflect on all my doings..
