My lovely friend's daughter, Yasmine, passed away today. She was only a kindergartner. She had suffered a severe reaction to a medicine.
Please pray for her soul and for her mother, father, and sister, grandparents and friends to go to God with all their hearts.

From Allah we come and to Allah we do return.
Go hug your kids.

Salaams Yosra:
From Allah (swt) we come and to Him we return.

May Allah (swt) comfort her family/Ameen.

How sweet she looks in that photo.

Asalamu Alaykom Sisters,

Thank you for caring. Mr. Boo and I have flown tonight to be close to her mom, my lovely friend. I got in too late tonight to see her. Tomorrow I will, inshahallah.

Subhanallah, I was fasting on Monday and got ready with only a little sleep. I woke up at 4:30 AM and kept going once I heard the news. Somehow, Allah
SWT got me through the day.

Before fajr, I had prayed istakkarah about the latest man to grace the stage. Prayed it when I still thought that it was a very important thing, which later it just wasn't. But the answer came. I couldn't get ahold of him--not to tell him that there had been a passing, not to ask him about me flying, not to take me to the airport, not to say goodbye. Subhanallah. No idea why this has happened, but it looks like my engagement is all done. Allahu alim.

Life changes on a dime, everyone.

I had NO IDEA I'd be writing you from my dear friends' apartment. Remember that unused ticket to Egypt? I used that to pay for this trip. Otherwise, I would not have been able to afford it. Subhanallah. I am no longer able to think of flying off overseas. That dream also ended today.

I don't know the future. I only know that I am meant to be here right now. Alhumdulillah for a safe trip.

I read this years later but I know the pain is still alive because even when you believe in God there are things that don't make sense. Praying for her soul, for the family and for you dear Yosra. May God be with them and you.
