If you are one of those affected by the tragedy at Christ Church, AsSalaamuaAlaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatahu. I am your sister in heartbreak and grief.⠀ ⠀
I have thought, over and over again, of what words of comfort I could possibly give you and Myself when we are in indescribable pain. When I know myself just how hard it is to wrap our mind around the fact that our entire world has changed-warped in a matter of a few moments. I know what it's like to feel like the ground has been ripped from under your feet, and you're stumbling- unable to process what is going on. There is so much, so very much that you need to DO and yet you have no idea how you're going to do it.⠀
And I also know what it's like to feel, in those heartbreaking, terrifying moments, a sense of calm from inside of you that is absolutely unexplainable. Like your Taqwa is so heightened that you can almost feel that Allah (SWT) Himself has put His Hand on your heart to steady you.⠀
"...and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein" [50:16]⠀
So the only words I can give you and me right now, are the same words that I repeat to myself. The same words that I live and breathe with every day to keep myself going.⠀
"So be patient. Verily, the Promise of Allah is True." [30:60]⠀
My sibling in Islam, If you have lost someone, take comfort in the fact that the trial of your loved one in this dunya is over.
In Sha Allah , they have been accepted by Allah SWT and granted a high and lofty status that true Muslims around the world would envy.
They will be safe from the horrors of the Day of Judgement,
safe from that lengthy standing of 50,000 years while the rest of humanity waits for judgement. May Allah SWT Bless us all with such a direct entry to Paradise without being called to account! (Ameen) This separation is only for a little while;
Alhamdulillah, it is only a separation in the dunya,
May Allah SWT keep us from being separated in the Aakhira. (Ameen)⠀
