Dealing With Tragedy

This post is a little different.

A couple of weeks ago, I asked my subscribers if they have a website to give me the URL and I would give a free review. I believe I can help people build a good website given my many years managing Islamic Learning Materials.

One of the many responses was from a Muslim sister who created a blog about the death of her son. I was very touched by the things she wrote and how she was dealing with her tragedy.

Even though I wanted to make the website reviews public, I decided at the time not to make hers public due to the private nature of the subject.

Therefore, I created a password protected page that only she and I could access and included my response. My response includes my thoughts on her tragedy as well as some website suggestions.

However, recently the sister contacted and asked that I make my response public for others who may be dealing with a similar tragedy.

Tragedy and trials are a part of life. It is something ordained by Allah’s decree (Qadr). We will all deal with similar tragedies at some point in our lives.

We must remember this life is transitory and our goal within it is to live righteously, continuously seek repentance, and prepare for the next life, which is permanent.

Hence, below is the original recording I made for her with no edits as well.

As-Salaamu Alaikum Sister,

Please listen to the recording I gave in response to your email. If you have any questions, you can email me back or leave a comment on this page.

May Allah make it easy for you, and Allah is the source of all strength.

Ameen.
