Center of Gravity

يأَيَّتُهَا النَّفْسُ الْمُطْمَئِنَّةُ ارْجِعِى إِلَى رَبِّكِ رَّاضِيَةٍ مَّرْضِيَّةً فَادْخُلِى فِى عِبَادِى وَادْخُلِى جَنَّتِى  

O tranquil soul. Come back to your Lord well-pleased and well pleasing. Enter then among My servants and enter My Paradise.

Last Tuesday my grandmother passed away. There was no one like her by the admission of anyone who met her. Anyone who was lucky enough to have known her. Our life as a family orbited around her and we all seem to have lost our center of gravity.

I am blessed with my parents and my siblings and husband and children but there was always a direction my day headed in. There was always a person we came back to see. There was always someone we wanted to go to and spend time with and she is gone now.

Now something new happens. Something that we don’t know and we don’t know if we will like. But we thank God for everything he has given us and we have faith she is with the One who loves her more than we can love her.


  1. الله يغفر لها ويرحمها ويجمعكم فيها بالفردوس الأعلى من الجنه و موتانا وموتى المسلمين

  2. My deepest condolences to you and your family. I know when losing a loved one there really are not adequate words one can say. I encourage you to rejoice her and not hesitate to share your wonderful memories with her.

    My prayers to you and all of your family.


    • Thank you so much Carol. Im compiling a list of ‘things they would know if they had known her’ for my children and it’s so much fun remembering these things with my sisters and cousins.

  3. My deepest heart felt condolences to the family.
    May God help you recognise her strenghts in those she leaves behind and forever celebrate the wonderful memories.

  4. عظم الله أجركم والله يرحمها ويغفر لها يارب .. إنا لله وإنا إليه راجعون

  5. Allah yr7amha dear. I am very sorry for ur loss. Losing a loved one is very hard, may Allah grant you the patience needed during these trying times. May she Rest in Peace <3
