"Because I want some Fruit Roll-Ups."


Its early morning right now. Its currently around 1:30 AM. I miss Asma so much. I kind of feel lonely. Well, I am lonely. So I just decided to come online and blog.

It was about an hour before Isha so I figured Id go take care of the groceries real fast. I need to get a few things for my mom and dad. As I was pushing the cart through the food section, I came upon those Fruit Roll-Ups. For those of you who dont know what it is, its basically a roll of fruit candy. Its good.

Anyways it automatically reminded me of Asma as I smiled a little. Asma used to love it. She would always tell me to go out and get it even if it was late at night.

She loved the watermelon flavor.

Whether I was at school or sleeping, she would call me and ask me to get Fruit Roll-Ups or candy for her.

It went something like this:

Asma: "Assalaamualaikum."
Me: "Walaikumassalaam."
Asma: "Where are you?"
Me: "At school."
Asma: "When are you coming home?"
Me: "In a while. Why?"
Asma: "Because I want some Fruit Roll-Ups."
Me: "Okay, I will get it. But I will be home in a little while okay?"
Asma: "Okay."
Me: "Assalaamualaikum."
Asma: "Walaikumassalaam."

She was so cute. She would sometimes wake me up and tell me to go out and bring her stuff. Of course, I couldnt say, "No." lol

Of course, when I thought of her, I smile. That smile turned into sadness. :'(

Lately, I have been missing her and more every day, every night. I really needed to talk to her and ask her for some advice. :'(

May Allah reunite us with her again. Ameen

    I've come to your blog many times over the past few months having discovered it just recently. Every time I think I will leave a comment, but I'm not sure what to say. People have their own opinions of how to handle grief. I've read some comments in which some people have encouraged you to move forward from this. No one can understand what it is to be you. Its my opinion that you are thankful to God for all you have and use this blog as a way to express your thoughts. That doesn't mean you don't realize all the blessings you have in your life. This year has been a roller-coaster ride for me, but reading your blog about how much faith in God Asma had gives me courage to deal will my small share of hardships. It reminds me how close death is and how precious time is. Thank you for sharing your thoughts because it has helped me to read of Asma's courage and faith. Jazakallaho Khaira. Please also remember me in your prayers. (The recitation in the background also especially touches my heart though i don't know why.) In regards to you wishing Asma was alive so you could ask her for advice, I think that somewhere in your heart you already know what advice she would give. You seem like you knew her really really well, having watched her grow up. I may be wrong, but I think that deep inside, the advice you long for is in your heart. Just continue to pray to Allah miya and listen, you will know whatever it is you need advice on. Allah miya will help you. Inshallah.
