Is she really gone?

Assalaamualaikum Warahmutallah,

"Wow, is she really gone?"

Thats what I ask myself everyday. So many things remind me of her. Im even having nightmares/flashbacks. Its really driving me nuts. I dont really tell anyone except for a people like my parents and my very close friends. Im afraid I will just burst into tears and cry my lungs out. Sometimes Im scared to talk about my sister and how I miss her. I really wonder many times if I will end up in a mental hospital in the future. I really dont know how my parents do it. Masha'Allah, such great courage and faith in Allah they have.

May Allah reward them. Ameen.
May Allah grant them Sabr. Ameen.
May Allah grant them Jannah and raise their status to the highest one. Ameen.
May Allah forgive them and keep them on the straight path. Ameen.

Whenever I go to the cemetery to visit her, I sometimes am left bewildered. I mean I never in a million years would have thought that Asma would die and I would lose her.

Its pretty uncanny to see her name written on her grave marker. There it is...her grave marked by a marker with her name, "Asma Haq" followed by the dates reading, "Oct. 9, 1992 - Feb. 11, 2005."

Subhana'Allah, can you believe it? Shes gone. Shes history. Shes forever gone. :'(

I have no one to wake me up 3 in the morning and tell me to go to the grocery store and buy her candy.

I have no one to call me every 5 min and tell me to do something. :(

Another thing that makes me miss her so much is the fact that she isnt here to talk to me about life...problems.

When you have people going around talking about you and your personal life and bash you both privately and publicly, you need some one to talk to.

When you have people going around spreading rumors and slander/backbite you and your personal life, you need some to believe you and know the truth.

Asma did both. She talked to me and believed me and knew what the truth was. Even though she would tell me not to care, she would be there to share the pain and/or anger with me.

Wow, Subhana'Allah...shes gone. :(

Assalaamualaikum Warahmutallah.

    I recently read your posts about your beloved sister, May Allah be pleased wit her, and it had made me realize that tradegy and death can come any minute. We constantly remind ourselves that death is coming, but we very little to prepare for it, SubhanAllah.
    Lately, I havent had such an EmanRush, but SubhanAllah these posts have made me realized and allahumdulillah has increased my iman.
    Jazkhallaukairun for that..

    We must all remember that this life is so short.
    One of the hadith of RasulAllah(Swt)
    [This life is like a man walking towards a destination and takes a rest stop under a tree, and then continues going]
    We must constantly remind ourselves of the Akhira and Jannah and strive to reach it...
    May Allah grant you, your sister, and family Jannah tul Firdaws.
    May Allah grant us all his forgiveness and rahma.
    May Allah make it easy for us to say the Shahada at the times of our death.

    Assalamualaikum Wr Wb

    SubhanAllah, May Allah swt reward your patience, May he grant your sister Jannatul Firdous and make your sister a source of intercesion for you on the day of jannah.

    We can't ever stop loving somebody, and once they leave this world it seems our love for them increases cos all we have are the memories. Cherish those memories and pray that Insha'Allah, Allah can grant us many more happier ones in jannah.
    With love for somebody comes dua straight from the heart them, and Insha'Allah thats all we can do for them.

    in the words of Hadhrat Yaqub (AS) "fa Sabrun Jameel"

    Those who we love never truly leave us. They are still there... Inside our hearts; In our memories; Forever with us.
