Thank goodness everything is ok! I'm so happy for you Yosra. Did she not want to marry the Yemeni suitor, and that's why she left?

Asalamu Alaykom Lisa,

Alhumdulillah :) Just to be clear: I am not part of her blood family, but rather part of the Islamic family, or ummah, with her. I've never met her or talked with the family BUT I sure felt for them! I have been following the story since September and keeping her in my prayers. Alhumdulillah, it was a happy ending.

I don't know about her fiance and that situation. My guess, though, is that she needed time away from everyone and everything to look at her life. Some cultures allow for that more than others.

Inshahallah, she has examined her priorities and has realized how important family really is.

Thanks for sharing in my happiness!
