Sometimes I really think on which loss should I cry and on which I shouldn’t…, 14th July 1998 was the date when you left us…, a very shocking news for all of us.., we can’t forget anything.. anything that has happened.., anything that was related to you.., today when I see Hammad and Ibrahim playing games I go back in time when you, Salman and I were the best buddies, we never needed anyone.., together we survived bad days, got equal love from maa and equal hard teaching from dad, that really helped us in life..
You did more than your age, you tried everything to bring just a single smile on mom’s face or our’s.., taught Salman a lot of things so that he can be independent like you.., I guess you did know about your departure, those teaching helped Salman and he did so many positive things! countless things I should say!
But wasn’t your presence enough for Allah? I guess no.. HE called dad after you.. another shock which didn’t just shock us but moved floor from under our feet.., it felt like we are sitting on the road with bare head and people pointing at us.., it was Salman’s presence’s which helped us after dad from people’s behavior..
But I guess Allah wanted more ‘naik‘ people for HIS heaven.. just when we were learning to live without dad HE called Salman… I don’t know on whose death should I shed my tears…, I have lost everything..
A brother like Nauman bhai, a friend like Salman, a teacher like dad.., I don’t know what else we are going to see.. but I don’t feel enough strength in me now..!
Prayers needed for both brothers and dad!
