From Allah we came and to Him we are Returning.

AsSalamu'alaykum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuhu,

From Allah we came and to Him we are Returning.

During last night's thunderstorm, a good friend of Salik's was hit by a bolt and passed away. He was found in sujud with a book beside him -- when I saw the news that sounded so much like Salik that it really struck me hard...and even moreso when we found out we knew him. Please make du'a for him, his family, and newlywed wife.

Fatiha and/or Ya Sin.

Wassalam,
Salikah

  3. This is so sad.

    We knew him and his family from University. What a wonderful person from a wonderful family.

    May Allah grant him paradise and may Allah help his family deal with this tragedy with sabar. Allahuma Ameen

  4. Not that it matters, but his brother told me yesterday that he was not found in sajood. In fact he was lying under there tree in a very peaceful way when someone found him. The person who found him also said that one could have easily have taken him for someone taking a nap under a tree, such was his calmness even when dying/dead. May Allah grant him jannat.

  5. Wa'alaykum AsSalam,

    Yes, his wife told me the same thing. The man who found him actually thought he was sleeping and tried to tell him to wake up.
