Pain of Losing a Beloved

By: Shazia Yousuf

Pain of losing a loved one cannot heal, it never can. You must try to bury it with the deceased; but both continue to live on in your heart, they never die. The pain and sorrow of the loss stay fresh as a new wound, but time teaches you to move on in life with the burden of sorrow buried within.

Pain at times is good; it lets you realise the pain of others. It gives your life a direction, a meaning - to add meaning to others' lives, to be a source of relieving sorrows with any kind deed, words of encouragement, a listeneing ear, or a simple smile.

So whenever your heart aches in rememberance of a beloved, go out and heal others.

Death Teaches Us

From the diary of my late father Muhammad Haris

  • Death tells us not to waste time.
  • It tells us to love each other from the depth of our hearts.
  • It gives us a message that we have to be accounted for our own deeds to the Divine being.
  • It is a benefit for all mankind.
  • It is the only thing that will survive in the future.
  • It is the path to eternity.
  • It is the mode of completion.
  • It is the moment of ultimate joy for an upright man to meet The Almighty.
