Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un. Thank you all for those that have been messaging and showing support with duas for my grandfather, but sadly he left us on Monday evening. Allah knows best and although selfishly we want to keep our loved ones around us, Allah has saved him from a lot of pain and hardship. He was in the hospital just about a week and it was the worst experience ever, mostly for him but also for the family to witness.
Please make dua for him that the hereafter is easy on him. He was always so strong with his Salah, always praying at the earliest time possible even when he could hardly stand up properly. We used to laugh at how stressed he got if he hadn’t prayed even 10mins after Salah had started. He couldn’t read properly but he learnt surah Yaseen through reciting over and over with his grandchildren for years. He lived with us for almost all of my life and was a 2nd father figure to me. He loved kids and alhamdulillah he lived to see so many grandchildren and even 7 great-grandchildren mashaAllah. Please remember him in your duas. May Allah grant him Jannat ul Firdaus and forgive him for any shortcomings. Ameen
